Since solidifying as a band, Moon Hooch has quickly gained a reputation for inciting "subway raves" (they were banned from performing at the Bedford Ave stop off the L line in Brooklyn for "starting too many dance parties"), their strange instrumentation and explosive live show. Their frequent presence in New York City subways and parks has brought them notice and fans which has led to appearances as the house band on Australian TV show "Hamish and Andy's Gap Year," and a national tour with Mike Doughty (Doughty saw them on a train platform and immediately invited to tour as his supporting act). They are now at the midpoint of a six month residency at Brooklyn's Knitting Factory, having sold-out all shows to date.
The band has already begun to expand its sound beyond just two saxophones and drums. Wenzl inserts a cardboard tube into his saxophone to create a Dubstep style womp, and switches between a contrabass clarinet and electronic wind instrument. Recorded in just a single day, their debut record, "The Moon Hooch Album," gives the listener a taste of what's to come for these guys. They seamlessly blend House, Dubstep, Drum & Bass, and Jazz into style that is uniquely Moon Hooch: Cave Music.
Stomp Status formed about a year ago after a jam session. The members are comprised of four George Mason University Jazz alumni/students. They decided to create a music that blended each members creative juices, and brought about a style that is deeply rooted in funk, soul, jazz, and blues. Their music is continuing to open minds in every performance, bringing possibilities of how these genre's can be stretched and molded to produce something electrically organic.
Originally formed in 2008 as a temporary project for drunken festivals and background music for bar brawls, Moonliscious has developed a steady and devoted following in the Washington, DC area. The band's sound has been described as The Meters meets Steely Dan, with just a little bit of DC go-go swing, The band members bring a mix of jazz, country, rock, funk, and jam styles to create a unique sound that's enjoyable whether you're 6 years old or 60 years old.
