Festival Review: Blue Water runs deep at Sawdust - Los Angeles Time and Laguna Beach Coastline Pilot,


"As I'm partial to '50s rock 'n' roll styles, one of my favorite bands of the day was MoonShine. With pinup-girl good looks and a vintage mic, singer Celena Marie DelPizzo-Howell garners the attention with her sassy vocals, but it was her brother Dylan who impressed on guitar. He brings to mind something between Elvis' first guitarist, Scotty Moore, and Brian Setzer's guitar on "Stray Cat Strut" thrown in a jazz jar. Without much expression or movement, Dylan kept a steady train shuffle between him and the drum kit, driving the beat forward. The song "Cold as Stone" was a highlight, as was a solid cover of Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues."

Bringing the Noise - Laguna Beach Magizine, Art & Culture (OC in Site),


"New favorite "MoonShine!" A Laguna-based band of youngsters who play what Tony Cox of Tightrope Entertainment describes as a blend of Etta James and the Stray Cats. Even when the youthful band takes the stage at The White House’s downtown location, they make it a hangout for an eclectic mix: from surfers to businesspeople, locals to tourists, young to young at heart."
