Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Moon Hooch/Revolution Brass Band

When: Wed., May 14, 8:30 p.m. 2014

Two saxophones and a drum kit. That’s all. But culled from the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, this trio of jazz musicians crafts some of the best dance music around. Their self-titled album from last year, containing song titles like “Number 9,” “Low 2,” and “Number 3,” is filled with undeniable grooves. Drummer James Muschler is a rapid-fire machine gun, laying down bullets that force dual sax guys Mike Wilbur and Wenzl McGowen to dance around each other in mind-bending ways. “Number 10” is a really phenomenal example of how these musicians can manipulate energy with ease. Their live show will undoubtedly reflect their in-studio joy. Get ready to dance, Cleveland. P.S. There’s a great video on Youtube of the guys crashing at some fans’ house and performing a little show in their living as their “alarm clock.” (Sandy)
