Based out of our hometown, Atlanta, Georgia, MOONTOWER was developed by the simple fact of good friends getting together to do what they love: play music! Moontower has been playing the local music scene for over seven years and has what it takes to jam with the best of the best. We have had the privilege of sharing the stage with artists such as Jeff Sipe (of Phil Lesh & Friends, Widespread Panic, and Trey Anastasio Band), Benji Shanks (of the Last Waltz Ensemble, Outformation, and Capt. Soularcat), George McConnell (formerly of Widespread Panic), U-Melt, and Devon Allman’s Honeytribe. Moontower’s music does not fit into one genre; it is best described as a melodic mix of Rock, Acoustic, Jam, Folk, and Country. Influences range from The Allman Brothers and The Band to Dave Matthews Band and Phish to Led Zeppelin and The Grateful Dead to The Bee Gees and Michael Jackson.
In April 2005, Moontower was given it’s first gig opportunity thanks to Pete Sobel and Peachtree Tavern in Atlanta. Since then we have been fortunate enough to play all the great stages in Atlanta including Eddie’s Attic, Smiths Olde Bar, Jake’s Toadhouse, Peachtree Tavern, The Five Spot, Red Light Cafe, Tin Roof Cantina, The Moonshadow Tavern and more!
In 2009 Moontower was selected as a finalist for Atlanta’s 92.9 DaveFM unsigned band contest!
In April 2010 Moontower was part of the Sweetwater 420 Festival in Atlanta, Georiga. Artists also on the lineup included George Porter of The Meters, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and Stanton Moore Trio!
MOONTOWER’s debut album was released on March 9th 2012 at the famous Eddie’s Attic in historic Decatur, GA! Recorded over 5 months at WonderDog Sounds in Marietta, GA! The album features 9 Moontower originals and a rousing rendition of George Harrison’s “Awaiting On You All.” The album was produced by Benji Shanks (Last Waltz Ensemble, Captain Soularcat, The Sundogs). Engineered by Josh Thane and Mark Michaelson. Special guest musicians include Benji Shanks, Tony Giordano (Lingo, Captain Soularcat), Nicholas J Niespodziani (Yacht Rock Revue, Indianapolis Jones, YOU), who will open the show, David Freeman (Yacht Rock Revue, David Freeman Trio), Rachel Simpson (Villain Family), and Chad Jackson. You can find the album in our online store, at Decatur CD, on itunes or at any live show! Check out our schedule to see where to find us next!
