Moon Hooch have announced Fall 2017 tour dates. The 18-show headline run will make stops throughout the Midwest and Rocky Mountains, including their biggest performances yet in Chicago, Minneapolis and Denver. The Brooklyn-based double sax and drums trio, who Brooklyn Vegan declared "bring the party to wherever they play," conclude the trek in the Southeast with two nights in Atlanta and Jacksonville. Tickets for all shows go on sale Friday, June 2 at 1PM ET.
Currently on tour in Europe where they'll remain for the majority of the summer playing club and festival dates, Moon Hooch have also announced the release of a 3-CD/DVD concert package entitled 'Live At The Cathedral' from their historic performance in 2015 at The Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City. Set for release June 30 via Hornblow Recordings and currently available for preorder, the concert was part of The Value of Food multimedia exhibition and series of public programming. The cathedral, which is the world's largest Anglican church, has a long history of engaging with issues of social justice, the environment, support for the arts and community involvement—all subjects of equally great importance to Moon Hooch.
Moon Hooch first came together busking on New York City subway platforms where they were discovered by Mike Doughty of Soul Coughing. Since then they've released four studio recordings, including last year's efforts, 'Red Sky,' which reached the top ten of both Billboard's Heatseeker and Jazz Charts, and The Joshua Tree EP, that was offered as a free download.
Moon Hooch count Iggy Pop among their biggest fans who raved on his BBC radio show: "I'm telling you these guys are cool. You know they're cool!" Additionally, the trio's NPR Tiny Desk session has recently surpassed two million views, while performing sold out shows around the world. Committed to consciousness and environmentalism, veganism and philosophy, as equally as they are to their music, which mixes elements of DIY indie rock, EDM, jazz and hip-hop, Moon Hooch featuring saxophonists' Wenzl McGowen and Mike Wilbur and drummer James Muschler, are only at the cusp of a career that has already proven them to be among their generation's most groundbreaking and thought-provoking young bands.
