Product Notes

'A Barnstorming Punk Rock take on vaudeville banjo and Bluegrass music' The Lagniappe, New Orleans 'Truck stop Honeymoon got the chops' The Stranger, Seattle Truck stop Honeymoon play tough, funny, hi-octane songs about interstates, pinball arcades and true love. Katie Euliss pounds a doghouse bass while Mike West punishes a banjo mercilessly. Together they charm festival crowds and drive roadhouse drinkers to the dance-floor. Since hurricane Katrina washed them out of New Orleans, Truck stop Honeymoon have traveled to the ends of the Earth and back, performing in Australia, Holland, Germany, Britain and throughout the US. Their music tells a story so honest and strange you know they didn't make it up. Katie learned whore-house piano and bucket bass in the streets of the French Quarter. There she met Mike, a banjo-slinging grifter who sold CDs he claimed cured hangovers and small-mindedness. After a court house wedding, the pair hit the road. They spent their wedding night in a truck stop somewhere between Lafayette and the Atchafalya Swamp. And so Truck stop Honeymoon was born. On August 29 2005, flood waters submerged their home base in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans. Truck stop Honeymoon were on tour when the storm hit and so on-tour is where they stayed. Mike and Katie played shows every night, lived out of their van and kept their two daughters entertained in convenience stores across America. But eventually, the road weary family parked their rig as far from any large body of water as they could get: Lawrence, Kansas. Truck stop Honeymoon continue to tour and build a loyal following from Illinois to Norway. They have put out four CDs on Baton Rouge label, Squirrel Records, and a full length documentary film by Nathan King Miller, "I Won't Let The Angels Take You Away", will soon be available on DVD.
