moe. continued its tradition of epic New Year’s Eve shows with a performance at the Fillmore Philadelphia on December 31st. Opening the show with “Spaz Medicine,” the band welcomed guitarist Chuck Garvey onto the stage for “meat.” during the first set, marking his first appearance with the band since suffering a stroke in November 2021, shortly after their last performance at the Fillmore Philadelphia. Garvey treated the crowd to a standout performance on the voice box during “Nebraska,” and performed with the band for the entire second set, which included covers of “Ophelia” by The Band and Spanish Moon” by Little Feat.

moe.’s 21-date, winter 2023 tour will feature select performances throughout the east coast. Beginning with three nights in NY, NJ, and DC in late January, the tour will resume with a 2-night run at the State Theatre in Portland, ME over President’s Day weekend, and an additional 2-night run at the Palace Theater in Albany, NY on February 24-25, coinciding with “moe.day” in Albany on 2/24. Following a short break, the second leg of the tour will center around the southeast, with a number of dates in Florida, and wrap with a 2-night run at Variety Playhouse in Atlanta on March 23-24.

moe. is a one-of-a-kind band that has never been easily categorized. Their sonic adventurousness and tongue-in-cheek humor are distinctly and undeniably their own. Praised by American Songwriter for their “mind-bending musicality,” moe. is treasured for their mesmerizing musical synergy, unfettered showmanship, and smart, resonant songcraft.

moe.’s longevity is no doubt due to the family spirit shared between its members and its engaged fanbase, the Famoe.ly, a bond that has been fortified through decades on the road. moe. has performed innumerable headline tours, international festival sets, music-themed cruises, and sold-out shows alongside countless household-name artists. They’ve also promoted and headlined multiple festivals of their own, including snoe.down and moe.down. The band’s vibrant blend of inventive musicality and genre-blurring is on full display on two recent releases, their 12th studio album, ‘This Is Not, We Are,’ and the ‘Not Normal’ EP.

moe. is Al Schnier (guitar, vocals) * Chuck Garvey (guitar, vocals) * Rob Derhak (bass, vocals) * Jim Loughlin (percussion, vibes) * Vinnie Amico (drums)
