Blue Moon Highway calls Portland, Oregon home and enjoys playing at various venues throughout the Great Northwest. A typical show has the band drawing from a catalog of traditional country music, as well as bluegrass, jazz, and blues. Toss in a large number of rock and roll and R&B favorites, and there you go. Unapologetic about its country leanings, the band balks at being pigeonholed in one particular label or genre, describing what they do as "Country music...and then some."
To the band, Country, Alt-Country, Honky Tonk, "Americana" and Roots are just terms. The band does all of those and more. They're a product of what they listened to coming up...and they listened to it all.
Blue Moon Highway's country influences are many: Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, NRPS, Gram Parsons, Commander Cody, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Steve Earle, Dale Watson, Lee Roy Parnell, BR549, Derailers, Mavericks, etc.
"And then some" includes: Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Bo Diddley, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Elvis, Ricky Nelson, Ronnie Hawkins and the Hawks, Johnny Rivers, Motown, Bob Dylan, Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Band, Grateful Dead, Delbert McClinton, and more.
