Some funky energy…a helping of rock and jam intensity…shake on some soul and jazz. That’s the flavor of Moonliscious. Originally formed in 2008 through the combination of two musical projects (Moonfish Band and Green Delicious), the band has developed a steady and devoted following in the Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia region. Featuring a sound that has been described as “The Funky Meters meets Steely Dan,” with a little bit of DC go-go swing, the 5-piece has been moving both brains and backsides from the ocean shores to the West Virginia mountains, from the Philly streets to the Virginia countryside.
Moonliscious maintains regular monthly shows at Dogwood Tavern in Falls Church, VA, and Ragtime in Arlington, VA, with frequent appearances at The Whiskey in Annapolis, MD. They’ve also played the Sun Trust Rock n Roll Marathons in both Washington, DC and Philadelphia, PA, and a long list of venues all around the Mid-Atlantic, including the historic Rams Head Tavern and Metropolitan in Annapolis, MD; Bloombars and Koffee’s Lounge in DC; and Wren’s Barn in Remington, VA. This troupe offers a brand of entertainment that’s unformulaic, engaging and fun while maintaining depth and complexity in sound and words.
Come treat your ears and booties to the celestial fruit of Moonliscious!
