Moon Hooch blew me away with just two saxes and a drummer. Their music is a mix of the best jazz, EDM and rock have to offer. It's out there, it's danceable and you may find yourself feeling a sense of reckless abandon!Village Voice: Moon Hooch Offer More Sax Than You Can Handle - "A DJ has recorded music and does live effects, we have recorded effects--we play to a computer--but the music is all live, so it gives us the musical freedom of jazz, but the precision of a DJ. We bring the two worlds together." The result is a live, jagged, infectious, danceable and acoustic sound they've dubbed "Cave music." ..."We all are music nerds and developed this language of Cave Music influenced by minimal techno, house music, dance music, dubstep."
The band is saxophonists Mike Wilbur and Wenzl McGowen, and drummer James Muschler. They all studied in New York at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, and every single moment of every song I've ever seen them perform has been full throttle. They call their music "cave music," taking the best elements of electronica — the brutal stops, starts and shifts — and performing those unnaturally precise hairpin turns organically by blowing on horns and banging on drums. This for the boldness in all of us. Embrace Moon Hooch.
