Moonshine Blues has been together since October of 2011. The guys have shown that not only practice makes perfect, but having the right group of guys together is key. Benjamin Rusch and Dan Hauenstein were the first members, both lucky to be taught how to preform under the wing of Chicago blues legend Vance Kelly. Followed by Rodger Wennersten and Mark Ehlert. Though still a new band, Moonshine Blues has proven themselves to be entertainers, packing the venue at every event they have played.
Dan Hauenstein is the band vocalist and guitarist. He has been playing the guitar for fourteen years and is well practiced in many styles such as classic rock, funk, and blues. Dan has a soulful vocal style, which makes him a double threat in the music world.
Mark Ehlert is the band percussionist. Mark started playing the drums 15 years ago. He has been blind for the past 7 years and believes that living proof is passion for everything! When Mark plays his drums they are not just an instrument but an extension of himself.
Rodger Wennersten is the band's bassist. He has been in the local music scene on and off for the last 24 years. He has played in bands such as Dominant Species and Luciferum. With several years of playing the bass and 21 years of playing the drums, Roger has the heart and soul of a musician and as a performer his presence takes up the entire stage.
Benjamin Rusch band vocalist, flautist and harmonica player. Having played the flute since middle school Ben adds an interesting flair to the band's sound that has become so integral to the band's success. Ben's bass vocals make him perfect for Delta style blues.
