Moon Hooch Announce UK/European Dates For Summer 2017.

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

We have received the following press release;

Moon Hooch Announce UK/European Dates For Summer 2017.

“This unique trio of energetic eccentrics are proof that acoustic jazz instrumentation can pack a cliché-free dancefloor punch” - The Guardian

“I’m telling you these guys are cool. You know they’re cool!” – Iggy Pop

ult techno-jazzers Moon Hooch will return to the UK in June with shows in Brighton and London’s Omera on June 11th, and 12th respectively. Comprised of tenor saxophonist Mike Wilbur, baritone sax/bass clarinet Wenzl McGowen, and drummer James Muschler, the trio will deliver their high-energy, intoxicating sound, that merges elements of indie rock, virtuosic jazz and pulse-pounding electronic dance music with a DIY aesthetic.

So popular as student buskers on New York’s subways that the NYPD famously banned their impromptu shows as a public-order hazard, Moon Hooch have since gone from strength to strength; selling out major venues in the US, touring globally, and releasing their third album Red Sky in 2016. They took audiences by storm on this side of the Atlantic last year with dates throughout the UK/Europe, which included stand-out performances at the O2 Academy Islington and the Love Supreme Jazz Festival.

In addition to the summer dates, the band will release Live at the Cathedral on CD/DVD on June 30th on Hornblow Recordings, and more shows are expected to be announced in the autumn.
