Moon Hooch + Polly Virr on Tuesday 23rd July 2019

Explosive American horn-and-percussion trio Moon Hooch - Mike Wilbur (horns), Wenzl McGowen (horns), and James Muschler (drums) - have taken their exhilarating blend of virtuosic jazz, groovy funk, and pulse-pounding electronic dance music from busking the New York City subway system to stages around the world, and we're thrilled to bring them back to Band on the Wall.

Onstage, the band plays through a 'Reverse DJ' setup, in which the live sound from their horns runs through laptops to process recorded effects. In addition, they utilise Moog synthesisers, as well as an EWI (an electronic wind instrument that responds to breath in addition to touch) and other more traditional instruments like clarinets.

Wilbur added vocals to his repertoire, and Muschler, meanwhile, immersed himself in tabla studies in India in order to expand his percussion skills.On 'Red Sky,' their third and most adventurous album to date, the band uses everything they've learned from their whirlwind journey to push their sound to new heights, bringing together the raw, transcendent energy of their live performances and the sleek sophistication of their studio work into a singular, intoxicating brew.

“A blitz of hammering low sax hooks, techno/house bass snortings and walloping percussion breaks “ - The Guardian
