Preeminent progressive rock quintet moe. will return to the Wilma in Missoula on Sunday, March 15, 2020. The band previously played in Missoula last year and also did a two-night NYE run in 2016. Check out the old photo galleries.
Described by Rolling Stone as a “legendary jam band,” moe. have been touring for more than two decades and have recorded more than 20 studio and live albums combined. The quintet consists of Al Schnier and Chuck Garvey on guitars and vocals, Rob Derhak on bass and vocals, Jim Loughlin on percussion and vibes, and Vinnie Amico on drums. In the same year, Rolling Stone ranked Chuck and Al among the top twenty new “guitar gods,” Jim and Vinnie were featured in Drum! magazine, and Rob was featured in Bass Player and State of Mind magazines.
Establishing themselves as a preeminent force within the progressive rock music scene, moe. have developed a strong and dedicated fan base of “moe.rons.” The band has toured the globe, performing at countless festivals, including Summer Camp, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Woodstock ’99, and Summerfest just to name a few. They’ve also hosted their own festivals including Moedown, snoe.down, and even a moe. cruise.
The band was recently inducted into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame being recognized not only for the impact they have made in their hometown, but for their charitable work on a national and international level as well. They hosted a Tsunami Benefit concert at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City in 2005 and raised $150,000 for Tsunami survivors. The concert earned moe. its second Live Performance of the Year Jammy Award. Moe. also raised over $100,000 for various charities, including the Red Cross for Hurricane Katrina survivors and for the music department at Bradley Elementary in Utica, NY, to help keep music in children’s lives.
