Moon Hooch - Something Else (Live at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine)

From the subways of New York to playing internationally...and playing and recording in Portland.

They're in the Northwest currently recording their new album. They played Doug Fir Lounge last week and will be coming back on Saturday, May 13.

We are told:

The band was discovered playing subways in New York City by Mike Doughty of Soul Coughing and have since grown into an internationally touring entity who are selling out shows around the world. Additionally, all three of their studio albums have hit the top ten of the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, while their NPR Tiny Desk is closing in on two million views: https://youtu.be/wwBhxBBa7tE
 
“I‘m realizing more and more every day that you can make anything happen for yourself if you really want to,” says Moon Hooch horn player Mike Wilbur. “You can change your existence by just going out and doing it, by taking simple actions every day.”

If any band is a poster child for turning the power of positive thoughts and intention into reality, it’s the explosive horn-and-percussion trio Moon Hooch. In just a few short years, the group—Wilbur, fellow horn player Wenzl McGowen, and drummer James Muschler—has gone from playing on New York City subway platforms to touring with the likes of Beats Antique, They Might Be Giants, and Lotus, as well as selling out their own headline shows in major venues around the country.
