Hailed by American Songwriter for their "mind-bending musicality," moe. is treasured for their

mesmerizing musical synergy, unfettered showmanship, and smart, resonant songcraft. For

three decades, the band has corralled myriad musical forms on a truly original journey rich with

crafty, clever songwriting and astonishing resourcefulness. Fueled by an impassioned fan base,

moe. has spent much of those thirty years on the road, encompassing countless live

performances marked by eclectic wit, deep friendship, and exploratory invention. Having built

an enduring legacy with hard work and a confirmed commitment to creativity and community,

moe. seem as surprised as anyone to find themselves at such a significant landmark.

"The career just very subtly unfolded," says co-founding bassist-singer-songwriter Rob Derhak,

"without any of us noticing it actually happened."

Al Schnier (guitars, vocals), Chuck Garvey (guitars, vocals), and Derhak first came together at

the University of Buffalo in 1990, musician-friends uniting to play for the sheer fun of it. The

band followed a handful of cassette-only releases with 1992's FATBOY, recorded in an

apartment studio above Buffalo's Top Shelf Guitars with a bird's eye view of Mighty Taco.

"We liked music, we liked to party, and we wanted to put those two things together," says

Derhak. "We wanted to do what seemed like the coolest thing we could possibly do and not

have to work a regular job. It didn't even seem like a decision had to be made. It's was like, this

is what we're doing and it's happening. The idea that thirty years later I would be a dad, paying

a mortgage and earning a living, based on our band, with the same guys no less, that never

even crossed my mind."

Finding themselves with an increasingly avid local following, moe. ventured forth, now with

master rhythmatist Jim Loughlin among their ranks. The more the band traveled, the more they

grew creatively, evincing a remarkable willingness to progress as they went along. moe. quickly

became part of a burgeoning scene centered around NYC's Wetlands, a grassroots revolution

that embraced freewheeling genre fusion -- spanning funk and free jazz, country and classic

rock, prog, new wave, calypso, pop and everything else under the sun -- fan interaction, and

unrestrained improvisation.

"We adapted," Derhak says. "Initially we didn't have quite as much of the same ideal at first.

We didn't jam or have long extended solos. But as we went from being an opening act to being

a headliner, we didn't have enough material to do two long sets. We needed more material so

 

our songs started to stretch themselves out. We became a jam band.
