Moon Hooch’s early subway busking days were cut short by the NYPD after the double-sax and drum trio’s raw grooves incited some frenzied and decidedly disorderly commuter dance parties. Bedford Avenue station’s loss is our gain, as the electrifying group takes stages everywhere by storm.
“Loud, proud, and deliriously unrefined” (Village Voice), Moon Hooch blazes through jagged groove-jazz with frenetic post-punk energy, ridiculous technical chops and a daredevil approach to extended technique (adding PVC tubes, traffic cones or whatever’s handy to the bells of their saxes). Don't miss their official music video on YouTube - classic! This is primordial art mischief at its best. With Mike Wilbur and Wenzi McGowen saxophones, James Muschler drums.
