After performing an impromptu acoustic set at a
friends house party in El Paso, Texas in March of 2016
with her ex, Daisy Moonshine quickly formed her first
band, Daisy Moonshine and Her Redneck Brothers.
The band was embraced by the Texas local
underground punk scene, and quickly developed a large
fan base and started looking to sign with a label. The
band signed with Bad Stain Records, and released a
limited edition ten inch vinyl record, titled "Bellis"
Perennis" in 2018, and followed up their debut with a
limited edition CD one year later titled, "Daisy
Moonshine and Her Redneck Brothers Play Their
Favorite Punk Rock Songs", and featured the band
performing cover songs from 15 punk bands that greatly
influenced them at some point.
In late 2019, Daisy Moonshine and her boyfriend, Redneck Ryan, ended their relationship, causing internal issues within the band.
Redneck Ryan and Daisy Moonshine found themselves in long heated arguments at every practice session, and band members started
expressing concern regarding the two's behavior. Unfortunately, problems escalated and the band found themselves imploding while on
stage at The Old Watering Hole in Dallas on New Years Eve. After Daisy Moonshine made several unflattering comments about Ryan to
the Dallas crowd between songs, the two band mates started a screaming match, ending up with Moonshine throwing several beer bottles,
as well as the microphone, at Ryan, while spewing lewd insults and spitting in his face. Ryan screamed back, eventually snapping a boom
mic stand in half before walking off stage and refusing to finish the set.
On New Years Day of 2020, Daisy Moonshine and her Redneck Brothers announced on their official website and assorted social
media pages that the band had officially called it quits. Although it didn't take Daisy long to put together a new band, featuring Redneck
Brother guitarist, Aaron Fuzz, and former guitarist, Charlie Riot. Moonshine also recruited Drudge Mason, the bassist for the Thrash /
Hardcore Punk band, Clown Raping, as well as her good friend Palance Maize, who was the guitarist and vocalist for the punk band,
Everything but the kitchen sink, and the pop punk band, Soundriver. Completing the new lineup, Moonshine chose Kevin Maltadena to
be the bands new drummer. At only 31 years old, Maltadena is close to a decade older than most of the other members, but his vast
amount of experience makes him a vital component of the band.
Moonshine changed the name of the band, and contacted Bad Stain Records. Daisy Moonshine and The City Boys signed a three year
contract with Bad Stain on January 5, 2020. The band is currently working on their debut untitled album, scheduled for release in early
