Continuing their commitment to mental health awareness and support within the music community, moe. is proud to announce that $1 from each ticket sold will be donated to Backline and Sweet Relief’s Music’s Mental Health Fund. This vital program offers grants to subsidize mental health and wellness services for touring musicians, crew members, and their families, underscoring the band's dedication to the well-being of their extended musical family.
Always expanding their live repertoire, the band has been reintroducing beloved classics and rarities back into their setlists, alongside debuting new covers for their fans. Recent shows have not only featured the first-time performance of Led Zeppelin’s "Going to California" in San Francisco last month but also heralded the return of the original "Paper Dragon," back in rotation for the first time since 2019, and the Pink Floyd cover "Interstellar Overdrive," making its first appearance since 2022. These highlights join other notable comebacks like "CalifornIA," returning after a hiatus since 2021, and "Take the Skinheads Bowling" by Camper Van Beethoven, which hadn't been played since 2018. Glide Magazine has praised the band's recent performances, stating, "Against the odds, the band has persevered while continuing to wave the flag for guitar-driven improvisational rock."
But fans don’t need to wait until the “Best.Summer.Ever” to catch moe. on stage. The band is currently gearing up for their “Ski Tour” in March, kicking off with a notable four-night run at Park City's Egyptian Theatre, followed by stops at favorite Colorado haunts. The return to Colorado follows a standout performance at Denver’s Ogden Theatre last year, which was hailed as "an epic night of music" by Denver Entertainment Hub. The tour is particularly meaningful, as it marks moe.'s first return to many of these venues since the early 2020 "ski tour" was abruptly halted due to the pandemic's onset.
moe. is a one-of-a-kind band that has never been easily categorized. Their sonic adventurousness and tongue-in-cheek humor are distinctly and undeniably their own. Praised by American Songwriter for their “mind-bending musicality,” moe. is treasured for their mesmerizing musical synergy, unfettered showmanship, and smart, resonant songcraft.
moe.’s longevity is no doubt due to the family spirit shared between its members and its engaged fanbase, the, a bond that has been fortified through decades on the road. moe. has performed innumerable headline tours, international festival sets, music-themed cruises, and sold-out shows alongside countless household-name artists. They’ve also promoted and headlined multiple festivals of their own, including snoe.down and moe.down. The band’s vibrant blend of inventive musicality and genre-blurring is on full display on two recent releases, their 12th studio album, 'This Is Not, We Are,' and the 'Not Normal' EP.

Daniel Donato's own musical frequency was tuned at a young age while growing up in Nashville. At just 14 he started busking on Music City’s lower Broadway for eight hours at a time. After giving his card to the leader of the Robert’s Western World house band every weekend for three years, he finally had an opportunity to sit in. 464 shows later, Donato honed his skill and learned stagecraft. After a high school history teacher gave him a pile of Grateful Dead bootleg recordings when he was 18, the stage was set for what would eventually become Donato’s vision, Cosmic Country. Since then, the guitar virtuoso, singer, songwriter and bandleader has released two acclaimed albums, the latest being 2023’s celebrated ‘Reflector’ and has been tearing it up on the road playing over 200 shows per year. Daniel Donato’s Cosmic Country has played to sold-out crowds from coast to coast and garnered a passionate and rapidly expanding fanbase.
