“I hung out the whole night and met some nice folks. My Blues family expanded a bit. How's the CD "Full Throttle Blues"? It gets my thumbs up. Its a nice mix of some classic cover's and a few originals, just to let everybody know that they are for real. I would say it would make a great Christmas gift, but by the time you read this it will be New Years Eve or later. If you haven't seen this Full Throttle Blues band yet, please put them on your things to do list. They are a guaranteed good time all the way around. The Mooseknuckle Bros are Shannon Libra on vocals, Rob Savage on keys, Todd Ek on guitar, Brian Olson on guitar, Terry Good on bass, Ace Barton on sax and Allen Therres on the drums. I would drive through a cyclone in reverse to see this band.”

“My new friends the Mooseknuckle Bros grabbed the reins after Tony Houle and rode hard and fast for about an hour and a half. Shannon Libra has the right combination of players, each and everyone of them has their part down pat. The Mooseknuckle Bros won the Battle of the Blues Bands earlier this year at Famous Dave's, and that got them a spot at the Famous Dave's Blues Festival at Peavey PLaza in June of this year and kicked but at that one too. Look for their new CD Full Throttle Blues soon.”

“The Mooseknuckle Brothers, a blues band based in Elk River, will be on the card for Famous Dave’s BBQ Blues Festival on Saturday, June 11. They are slated to play at noon in the all-day event at Peavey Plaza in downtown Minneapolis. Music will be played until 10:30 p.m. Shannon Libra of Crystal, lead vocalist and harmonica player, reports that they were one of four bands picked from 16 at a recent Sunday show at Famous Dave’s in Uptown. “We’ve been together two years, and we all have day jobs,” said Libra. “This will open doors for us.” The Mooseknuckle Brothers play some original music. One song that “brought the house down,” said Libra, is an original called “I’m So Happy I’ve Got the Blues.” The band founders are Todd Ek of Elk River, who plays guitar and sings, and Allan Therres of Elk River, the drummer. ”

“It was a grand night at Famous Dave's in Uptown, as The MooseKnuckle Brothers WON the 2nd annual Battle of the Blues Bands before a large, raucous crowd!”

“The benefit is set for Saturday, Oct. 24, from 4 to 10 pm. There will be a live Blues Band, the Mooseknuckle Bros, along with a silent auction, hog roast with fixings. I checked the MooseKnuckle Bros.’s playlists out on myspace. These guys rock!”
