Moonalice 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”. A copy of the poster is given free to all attendees. All Moonalice concerts are broadcast live in HD and available in an online archive shortly after their set.

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.

Band members: Barry Sless – lead guitar, pedal steel guitar, bass (Phil Lesh & Friends, David Nelson Band, Kingfish, Cowboy Jazz), Pete Sears – keyboards, bass, guitar, vocals (Sam Gopal Dream, Rod Stewart, original Jefferson Starship, Hot Tuna, John Lee Hooker), Roger McNamee – rhythm and lead guitar, vocals, bass (currently of Doobie Decibel System with Jason Crosby www.DDSband.com / Guff, The Engineers, Random Axes, Flying Other Brothers) , and John Molo – drums, vocals (Bruce Hornsby & The Range, John Fogerty, Phil Lesh & Friends, The Other Ones).

The band manager is Big Steve Parish – Road Scholar, Medicine Man, Story Teller, Grateful Dead family member, and co-founder of Jerry Garcia Band.

Brothers Keeper

 

Brothers Keeper is a trio with the heart and soul of rock ’n’ roll plus a distinguished taste in Americana song flavors.  The core members are Scott Rednor (guitar), Michael Jude (bass), and John Michel (drums).  In the course of recording their recent CD release, Todd Meadows, they fell in with record producer Jono Manson and Blues Traveler’s John Popper – and both have stuck around to tour.   The core three are East Coast transplants to Colorado.  Michael and John play with the John Oates Band (Hall and Oates) and other world renowned musicians, while Scott owns Shakedown Bar in Vail and books the national talent when he’s not playing.  broskeeper.net
