Moon Hooch

Now you may be thinking, what kind of name is Moon Hooch? They are a Nu-Jazz/Fusion band from my hometown of Brooklyn, New York. They are fun and love mixing styles. Their music is dance-oriented percussion and saxophone based music. The band members met at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. They started out playing in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and later were busking subway stations around New York City. In 2013 they released their self-titled album which went to #9 on the Billboard Jazz charts. While they were busking around train stations they got into a bit of trouble with the NYPD for having lots of people dancing on the train platform. They were banned from playing one particular train station, the Bedford Avenue station because too many people dancing at the edge of the platform. They were mostly Jazz at the beginning of their career but have added dance rhythms to their Jazz music. Moon Hooch strongly believes in saving the environment and has announced that the band is carbon neutral. They just released their latest album titled, Life on Other Planets. Get your dancing shoes ready and check out this fun band. Support independent music and musicians. Happy listening!
