Upcoming Events for Moon Hooch

Spawned from New York City's subways in 2010, busking trio Moon Hooch (Wenzl McGown and Mike Wilbur on Tenor Saxophone, James Muschler on Drums) has developed a style of dance music all their own - Cave Music. Moon Hooch creates frenzied foot-stomping bashes with nothing more than two saxophones, drums, and the occasional contrabass clarinet.

Their self-funded, self-released debut album "proves that you can do a shit ton with just those three instruments." The tenor saxophones frequently feud like a roundtable debate of drunken philosophers, while the Muschler's minimal drum kit rattles off, arguing only with itself.

Like The Felice Brothers, Moon Hooch has cultivated a dedicated "underground" following by playing to thousands of subway passengers. Mike Doughty (Soul Coughing) took notice of the band's unique style while waiting for a train and invited them on a month long national tour in November 2011 as his supporting act.
