Rehearsal Party goers loved Mac Moad

To anyone who is wondering who to hire for a country music party, let me say that Mac Moad is your man! He and Jim played for our rehearsal party in Hot Springs and we had so many compliments from our guests we couldn't count them. They are great musicians and Mac's voice is fabulous. We liked that Mac and Jim responded to guest requests throughout the evening as much as they could. They played slower when we needed it during dinner, and picked up the pace when the crowd wanted to dance. We wound up extending their playing time by 1 1/2 hours because of popular demand.
Thanks, Mac and Jim for a job well done. You definitely made our party fun!

When will their music be in Stores? They are Freakin Great

I seen these guys a few times now. Most recently performing at a casino. Every one was around the stage and dancing. Not only are these guys talented musicians but they are most definantly professional entertainers. We stayed drinking drinks and were entertained until they left the stage. I recomend them to anybody that wants to go out and have a good time. My freinds and I now look to see were they are playing, because we know that joint is a rockin.

Professional and friendly band for Texas wedding

We hired this band for a Texas wedding and New Year's Eve party. They took you through all the contract arrangements and exactly when and how long the band would play and be on breaks. Their equipment set-up was 1st class. They had several different styles of music they played. They are an amazing band. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed them. I would highly recommend them. Just wish they were not so far away from us.

Book them!

I have seen Silent Thunder Band twice and had an absolute blast! The vocals are unreal and blow any other cover bands out of the water. Awesome job entertaining the crowd, and loved the "rapping" Mac performed. Great variety of songs, and loved how they got the crowd involved. I would highly recommend booking this band to anyone looking for a guaranteed good time!

Mac Moad

For the last 35 years, I have appeared all over the country at one time or another. I have held most every position in a band and have run a few spotlights as well. From giving guitar lessons in high school, to playing every Friday night at the American Legion in a show in Guthrie Oklahoma called the Guthrie Opra Show, to spotlights in the casinos.

I have worked several clubs in Arkansas and Oklahoma to include the “Cadillac Ranch” in Pocola. I got picked up at the Traditional Crossroads Club in Fort Smith, Arkansas to perform with Bob White, “who was a steal guitar hall of fame player, working in his house band “Cross Country”.
I have met and worked with all kinds of musicians on and off the road. I worked for Bob White for 2 years, 6 nights a week, then Doye Elmore, owner of the Cactus Club in Fort Smith Arkansas for another 2 years in his house band “Midland Express”.
Shortly after the Cactus Club was sold, I started my own band “Silent Thunder” out of Oklahoma, in which I still have to this day.

My band “Silent Thunder” worked all over Arkansas, Missouri, Texas and Oklahoma for several years. We worked the traditional Painted Stallion in Joplin Mo, the Horseshoe in Joplin, and Silverado’s in Joplin. We also booked the Cowboy Palace in Neosho, did a few gigs in Eldon and Osage Beach Mo. From Mountain Home Arkansas at the “Club Fox” to Ozark, to Altus, to Dardanelle, to Morrilton, all across the Oklahoma border from Pocola to Sallisaw, to Norman Oklahoma at the Riverwind Casino. Then we started with Vega Texas, on the New Mexico border at the traditional “Tom Henry Green Barn”.

Since I was 12 years old, I have worked 35 years in the music profession.

I can perform most every kind of music from old school traditional country or western to current dated stuff. I can sing and play Country and Western, Country Rock, Southern Rock, Christian, Contemporary, Blues, Rap, just whatever the customers wanted to hear at the time, I worked towards the customers needs..

I perform with my band, or as a two man acoustic show, or as a single act entertaining and performing shows.

I do write songs and in September of 2011, I signed with the a label in which I have recorded 8 original songs for my album “Call of the Honky Tonks”. My producer {Don Johnson} is one of the best producers I have ever known, and has the track record to prove it. The staff at TMG is awesome and have completed a professional soundtrack I am proud to say is all mine. This Album will release nationally August 21st, of 2012.

This Album is dedicated to my family and the traditions I was raised under. I hope to make them proud and to carry on the traditions of my famlies traditional music and values in the passion of the music profession.
