Sparks flew and Moonshine Maybelline was born when Catherine Foreman added her songs and her vocals to the guitar and bass of twang-rockers Bob Spector and Ted Oâ€™Connell, long adored locally for the country rave-ups of their band, The GoldDiggers.

The band continues to shine on the local scene with appearances ranging from The Fillmore Poster Room to an outdoor concert at Pixar Animation Studios and top local clubs including Make-Out Room, Armandoâ€™s, The Starry Plough and The Lost Church.

The BBCLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit...
