Moonalice is a psychedelic, roots-rock band of seasoned musicians mixing a variety of genres with extended musical improvisations. Everyone is a part of the experience. Moonalice was the brainchild of the great producer, T Bone Burnett in 2007 because he wanted to create a band with a San Francisco 60’s sound. Moonalice plays mostly original material mixed with some covers, and during their extended freeform jams the band moves as one, drawing from many musical genres honed from years of experience playing with various major acts. Every show features an original art poster, created by a well-known artist, and with its own unique Moonalice “legend”. A copy of the poster will be given free to all attendees. All Moonalice concerts are broadcast live in HD on the Moonalice Couch Tour and available shortly after their set.
Moonalice’s hit single “It’s 4:20 Somewhere” has been downloaded over 4.6 million times.
