Join us for free live music by Mo Robson today at The Rustic!
It has been fifteen years since the release of the MRB self-titled debut album. Fans still request songs from that first album, and its successors, nightly as the guys zigzag countless and nameless roads burning towns down with their brand of Honky-Tonk music. A true “Live” show is what you get when the MRB sets foot on stage. They always leave crowds wanting more and they have been keeping folks singing loudly and dancing in circles for years.
Through the years the MRB has released three more albums, two of which are out on the Smith label (“Even Angels Fall” and “Live at Adair’s”). Both albums went double copper and charted singles which still receive regular airplay throughout the southwest region. The latest album release (“Can’t Afford The Luck”) is out on Robson’s own label Red Star Records. The title track has already been receiving radio airplay, and the band plans to send more singles to radio in 2015 while they keep promoting the title track. They have shared the stage with numerous National and Regional headlining acts averaging over 200 shows annually. From roadside dives to large festivals these guys have played it all. After years on the road the band is most proud that they can change a flat tire on the van or trailer, from point of impact, in twelve minutes or less with a standard issue vehicle manufacturers jack.
Based out of Deep Ellum, TX, the MRB is a four piece honky-tonk/ outlaw country “family” of a band that consists of four very charismatic individuals. Mo Robson is the singer and rhythm guitar player of the bunch. He is also the man behind the songs, with four albums worth of originals available. Writing credits aside, Robson is also a very seasoned front man and performer. He knows how to grab a crowd’s attention, and keep it, with his raw mix of adrenaline, energy and honesty that comes pouring out. Always down for a damn good time Robson is surrounded by a band like no other.
Making up the rhythm section is bassist Drew Harakal and drummer Brandon Rice, a.k.a Spud Crowley. Rice keeps time like a Swiss watch and Harakal anchors it down with his smooth driving groove. Rice also sings harmony vocals and co-writes with Robson. The duo penned a waltz together, “Lonesome Waiting at Home”, that was written and recorded for the release of their new studio album “Can’t Afford the Luck” (Red Star Records). Laying it down on lead guitar is Jeff Schulze, who is as seasoned as they come and the newest member to the band.
The passion for music is what drives this band. They take pride in their professionalism and they are second to none at what they do. Armed with a brand new studio album, “Can’t Afford the Luck” and a fire like no other, the MRB remains on the endless journey of honky-tonking, driving the same roads their heroes have traveled and leaving their own mark on cities and towns scattered across the map.
