Veteran jam band, moe., comes to Hard Rock Cafe on the Las Vegas Strip Thursday, March 7 with special guests Orgone (Photo: © Erik Kabik/ RETNA/ www.erikkabik.com).
Hailing from New York, the band was formed at the University of Buffalo in 1989. Band members include Rob Derhak, Chuck Garvery, Al Schnier, Vinnie Amico and Jim Loughlin. Together, they play an amalgamation of a wide variety of rock and jam, coupled with a sense of humor, adventure and improvisation.
The release of moe.’s first record, Fatboy, established the band as a favorite of the jam band and improvisational rock scene that grew in popularity in the 1990s. moe. have toured with the 1997 Furthur Festival and even opened for The Allman Brothers and The Who. On New Year’s Eve, in 2006 and 2007, they performed at the Radio City Music Hall. They have also played at countless festivals, including Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza.
Their constant desire to push the envelope is evident in their music. The release of their completely new collection since 2008, What Happened To The LA Las, opens a new chapter in the moe. story. Although it is not a sharp departure from their signature roots-rock and exploratory jams, the band have stepped out of their comfort zone in significant ways. The result is an album that has a gritty yet professional sound. With their constant metamorphosis, moe. is reaching out to new audiences and breaking new ground, while still retaining their dynamic essence.
