    The Moondoggies The MoondoggiesWhite Eagle Saloon | Sunday, June 28, 2015 Tickets on sale now!About The MoondoggiesThe Moondoggies are a four-piece band from Seattle that plays timeless American music. Warm three-part harmonies, gothic Rhodes organ, and wanderlust guitar mark a sound rooted in boogie blues and cosmic country; whip-smart songwriting leads to hook-heavy tunes that bristle with originality. Led by 22-year-old singer/guitarist Kevin Murphy, the Moondoggies are intent on artistic balance. They're a serious band with a silly name. They play music that speaks of travel but is strongly connected to its place of origin. They're young musicians continuing a legacy that goes back generations. Songs that unravel over seven sinuous minutes are somehow catchy and compact.As witnessed on Don't Be A Stranger, the Moondoggies' debut, the bands sound displays shades of gospel, blues, rock, and country; wall-of-sound harmonies radiate joy and passion; songs remain in the mind long after the record ends. The influence of the Band, the Byrds, and especially early Grateful Dead is evident, though the Moondoggies lyrical economy and compositional sensibility render these 13 tracks fresh and unique. "I don't think sitting down and playing guitar is an old-time thing," Murphy recently told The Seattle Times. "Our sound is what seems to happen when we sit around and sing and play. It's never going to get old. People will always do that."Official website:http://moondoggiesmusic.com/Myspace page:http://www.myspace.com/themoondoggiesmusic.com/Facebook page:http://www.facebook.com/TheMoondoggiesMap & Directions
