It’s blues with fangs, black hats, tight pants and a kick of bluesy cabaret - a two piece original blues band, developing their sound from the masters of old & new, such as Lightnin Hopkins, Tom Waits, and Bo Diddley.
Frontman Moondog uses a variety of guitars including slide and resonators, along with harp to complement his authentic, growling vocal. The rhythm is provided by Kate La Jam playing standUP drum kit, cajone & percussion.
So what makes MGBB rise above being just another blues band? Simply put, Moondog Gypsy Blues Band has a stage presence thatʼs raw, unedited MOJO. Their signature is simple yet strong drum rhythms supporting Moondogʼs gutsy guitar and vocals. These guys really live the blues, Original, traditional and modern blues synthesized into a sound that gets you dancing and howling at the moon.
