For the first time in Italy, one of the most famous and appreciated American Jam Bands: moe.
moe. will stop in Milan on 25 March 2012 at the Salumeria della Musica after releasing their tenth studio album, 'What Happened to the La Las".
The new album, which American critics describe as "a blend of pop and prog rock that is extrovert but not overly so"is one of the band's most significant works and a sign of a decisive turning point: a contract with the Sugar Hill Records and the production of John Travis (Kid Rock, Social Distortion, Static-X, Suicide Silence, No Doubt).
I moe., an American jam band formed in 1989 at the University of Buffalo, is currently composed of Rob Derhak (bass, vocals), Al Schnier (guitar, vocals, keyboards), Chuck Garvey (guitar, vocals), Vinnie Friend (drums) and Jim Loughlin (percussion).
The band's first work, 'Fatboy"(1992), confirmed them as one of the best 'improvised' rock jam bands of the 1990s on the same level as Phish and Widespread Panic. In their more than 20-year career, they have participated in numerous festivals including the Furthur Festival 1997 and Woodstock of 1999, played at the Rumsey Playfield in Central Park, open for Allman Brothers and for the Who and much more.
<< They are an amalgam of a wide range of rock history - says the band's guitarist Al Schnier - all repurposed and recycled through new eyes, ears and hands, with a sense of adventure, humour and a constant desire for improvement >>
After 'Fatboy', the band recorded 'Headseed"in 1994 and subsequently "Loaf"first live recorded work'.
Soon we will see them perform for the first time in Italy.
