Meet Dustin and Denzel Mooney of The Mooney Bros in Gardena

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dustin and Denzel Mooney.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Dustin and Denzel. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
It all began when we were kids. We’re two years apart, but our parents always paired us together as if we were twins. From a young age, we knew we wanted to be entertainers. “Wherever you go, make sure you take your little brother with you.” Is what our parents would say during our teenage years. This caused us to develop a chemistry that till this day, we can’t fathom. Moving forward, this led to us starting a YouTube channel that propelled us to begin our journey of turning ourselves into household names. We go by Dustin & Denzel or The Mooney Bros. You can literally google us and see a bunch of different things pop up such as YouTube videos, music and TV shows that we have appeared on as well. We made our first appearance on the Wendy Williams Show, then we were casted for a YouTube Series called ‘Twin My Heart’ on Viacom’s AwesomenessTV, and recently we were on Hot Ones: The Game Show on TruTV.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Has it been a smooth road? Think of it this way, you’re driving a hooptie on an unevenly paved road with one bad axle, some worn out shocks, and the brakes are screeching because the pads have worn out as well and you’re riding on the rotors. No success story comes from a clean open road. We’ve struggled in many ways and have many failed attempts as well, but what you do with those losses shapes the person you will become. We took those losses and turned them into lessons. We’ve been denied on auditions, 2nd rounds of castings, denied access to events because we didn’t have enough followers and whatever else you can possibly think of. Being denied because someone doesn’t see our potential doesn’t stop us, it motivates us to keep going. If at first, you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again! That’s our motto and we strongly believe in ourselves as well. Although there are struggles along the way, we know that once we cross the finish line, it’ll be all worth it because we fought and earned it!

Please tell us about The Mooney Bros.
Essentially, we like to say that we’re entertainers. We are very multifaceted because we act, do music, and we’re personalities as well. We are most known for our Twin My Heart appearance, which is a reality dating show, where The Merrell Twins were executive producers of the series. Honestly, we’re proud of every single accomplishment that we have. We’re grateful that each and every accomplishment brought us to where we are now and we’re so humble about it. Some things that set us apart are our work ethic, determination, dynamic, chemistry and confidence. We believe in ourselves very much and we always strive to be the best we can be. We have a clear vision on where we want to go and how to get there. We just buckle up and enjoy every bit of the ride!

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
If we had to start over, we wouldn’t do anything different. We believe all of the struggles along the way shaped us to be the people we are now. We are appreciative of each and every opportunity, whether it was a success or not because we needed those to situations to help us navigate on this unevenly paved road.
