On the heels of an emotional first leg of their winter 2023 tour, which saw guitarist Chuck Garvey return to the road full-time following his stroke in 2021, moe. has announced an additional run of performances for April/May, beginning in Tulsa, OK on Wednesday, April 26th. The tour will then route through Texas, Arizona, and Missouri, and include a two-night run at Tipitina’s in New Orleans during Jazz Fest 2023. The announcement comes with the news that keyboardist Nate Wilson, who first sat in with the band during Garvey’s recovery last year, is now an official member of the band and will perform at all of moe.’s performances, going forward.

“We are thrilled to announce that our long-time friend, keyboardist Nate Wilson will be joining moe. full-time moving forward,” bassist Rob Derhak comments. “Former founding member of both Percy Hill, and Assembly of Dust (and current band leader for Ghosts Of Jupiter), Nate has been part of our lineup since our first shows without Chuck Garvey. He has since proven himself a valued contributor to our sound, and now with Chuck back in the groove, he compliments our overall style. His sense of humor and overall breadth of musical knowledge is a welcome addition.”

“I’m beyond excited to embark on this new adventure as full-time keyboardist for moe.,” Wilson adds. “The band and their fans are legends. Can’t wait to hit the road this spring!”

Select February performances will include an opening set by Karina Rykman. Following a short break, the next leg of the tour will center around the southeast, with a number of dates in Florida, followed by a 2-night run at Variety Playhouse in Atlanta on March 23-24. The tour will then conclude with the newly announced April/May dates, culminating in Kansas City on Wednesday, May 3rd.

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) * Nate Wilson (keys)
