Moonalice 420 Gathering of the Tribe

MoonaliceMoon­al­ice is a psy­che­del­ic, roots-rock band of sea­soned musi­cians. The band mix­es a vari­ety of gen­res and its shows fea­ture extend­ed musi­cal impro­vi­sa­tions that evoke a sense of adven­ture and explo­ration. The audi­ence is part of the expe­ri­ence and the music inspires dance as well as oth­er forms of self expres­sion. Every show fea­tures an orig­i­nal art poster, cre­at­ed by a well-known artist, and with its own unique Moon­al­ice “leg­end”. 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.
