    Muddy Roots Acquires MoonRunners Fest (Chicago)

    Muddy Roots Records will take the reins on the 5th annual MoonRunners Fest and keep the momentum of the event moving forward with expected growth. Founded in 2013 by Jahshie P (Outlaw Radio Chicago), in partnership with Reggie’s Rock Club to represent the underground Country, Americana, Deep Blues, Folk to Punk Rock music scenes in the area.

    “I have been friends with Jason and Muddy Roots for years now, and I have always admired the business ethic. Bringing them aboard for MoonRunners will only make our future brighter and full of new options” – Jahshie P

    Muddy Roots had served as inspiration for this event so it only makes sense to join forces in show of support. In July of 2016 Muddy Roots provided on site merchandising through it’s promotional items division “Power Merch.” Festival t-shirts were printed and many of the band’s shirts and records were sold as an added service. ( An opportunity for growth was identified as well as a need for more support. Jahshie P will stay on to book and assist in running the event as usual while Muddy Roots will add some strength to the core as well as promotions with the new ownership.

    MoonRunners 5 will take place May 5-6, 2017. The indoor event will continue to be on 2 stages over both days. Booking for this event will begin the first week of August. Presales to be announced at a later date.
