Moe, like The Grateful Dead and others, are jam bands. Both groups have multiple drummers, and drift off into places that only our minds tend to wonder around in, or atleast mine anyway. I discovered Moe by going to a website called, Pandora.com, it's an online radio station that you can taylor to your tastes. Type in "The Grateful Dead," and they will play Dead songs along with other suggestions. It's all free, with the ocassional interruption trying to sell you music, but they get really creative when it comes to exposing you to other artists that fit the genre that you're into.
If you've never heard of Moe, songs such as; Mexico, She, Moth, The Weight, are all good places to start. I thought the Dead had some long songs until I heard these guys...
Saw these guys live at the Iowa City Jazz Fest & I was blown away! If y'all get a chance...check 'em out.
If you live in Ohio, Terrapin Moon is a good tribute band to see!! Based in Dayton, you can find them playing Columbus, Cincinnati, and this year they're doing an acoustic set at Grateful Fest 08 ....can't wait!!!
Max Creek and many many more... Greenfield MA. 9/12/08-9/14/08
