ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"They spit on enough conventions to keep things interesting" The Onion
"Bluegrass, Punk Rock and a palpable dose of Soul" The Pitch, Kansas City

Truckstop 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, Truckstop 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 Truckstop Honeymoon was born.

On August 29 2005, flood waters submerged their home base in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans. Truckstop 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.

Truckstop 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.

Great Big Family
Just saw Truckstop Honeymoon at the Carbondale (town) Country Fair in Colorado.
One of the best Country groups to ever grace our stage here in the Roaring Fork Valley, near Aspen.
They (the couple) wowed the large crowd on a beautiful blue sky Coliorado summer day.
Hope they return to Aspen, Carbondale, Basalt or Glenwood Springs soon - maybe Belly Up in Aspen.

Keep up the great work!

Best Truckstop Honeymoon CD Ever
All the Truckstop Honeymoon & Mike West CD's are Great, However I gotta say in my opinion this ones the Platinum Treasure, It's got it all, Humor, Love, Loss, Family, Reality, Rock, Folk, Zydeko, Country, and Real Heartfelt Emotion all in one CD, Although thay are only a regionaly known touring Band, this one deserves to be in the music hall of fame for Great American Albums.
