LiveNation Presents: moe. at The Fillmore

On December 5th, the stage at The Fillmore Charlotte became enlightened to the rhythmic sounds and psychedelic trances of the 90’s jam-band, moe. For those unknowing of the now three-decade and 24 album-seasoned band from Sugar Hill Records, the band comprises of a quintet of musicians with varying musical talents.

More specifically consisting of Al Schnier and Chuck Garvey on guitars and vocals, Rob Derhak on bass and vocals, Jim Loughlin on percussion and vibes, and Vinnie Amico on drums. The band has gone on to tour festivals and major headlining shows even sharing the stage with acts ranging from Allman Brothers Band to Government Mule.

However, it has never been a fairytale for a band with this big of success.  From their humble beginnings playing local bars in Buffalo, NY in 1989, it has been nothing but hard work and perseverance that is easy to see when they perform – from the melodic vibes created from the xylophone to the trippy light spectacular that they provided for the Charlotte audience.

The crowd was not short of supplying the same vibes that the band was putting off. A much different scene than this photographer is used to, the crowd for moe.’s shows is actually a very mellow but lively group of enjoyable people for both the first and second set. With a jam-band like moe. though, there would be no reason to get illusive but this did lead to some enjoyable crowd photographs.

Trippy is something that any crowd-goer for moe would ever be short of.  From the great atmosphere, colorful light show, and great vibes between the band and other members of the crowd everyone is in for quite a treat at any moeshow.  If you were unable to catch the band at the Charlotte concert however they host an annual “moe.down” at Snow Ridge Ski Area in Turin, New York.

This festival started in 2000 and consists of a three-day jam session of varying musicians and bands occurring every Labor Day weekend.  For those jam-band enthusiasts out there don’t just take my word for it as this one being a “legendary jam band,” for even Rolling Stone describes moe. as such. You would be foolish to miss an opportunity to catch them should one arise.
