Chris Hersch, above, and the MoonRaiders play Riverwalk in Nashua, N.H., on Thursday, April 4. The Moon Raiders are a western swing band that combine the most exciting and dance-floor-ready parts of swing jazz, rock 'n' roll, country and truck-driving music.

Award-winning guitarist Chris Hersch (co-founder of Say Darling, and former guitar player for Girls Guns & Glory) leads this quintet of accomplished musicians, as they blaze a direct line from a

classic Texas roadhouse to a smoky jazz club and back again. Drawing on a unique repertoire often overlooked in the Great American Songbook, The MoonRaiders pivot between Bob Wills, Chuck Berry, Dave Dudley, Commander Cody and their own original music -- all in one show.
