Bold Moves

Moon Hooch

About this talk

The musical equivalent of the TEDxAtlanta theme “Bold Moves,” Moon Hooch kicked off the conference. The raw, kinetic sounds of saxophones and drums electrified the auditorium and set the energy at maximum volume.

About this speaker

Moon Hooch is recreating the sounds and energy of dance club music with two horns and a drum set. Moon Hooch captured the imaginations of thousands with its infamous stints busking on subway platforms and elsewhere in New York City: two sax players and a drummer whipping up furious, impromptu raves. It happened with such regularity at the Bedford Ave station in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, that the band was banned from playing there by the NYPD. The trio’s subsequent tours with They Might Be Giants, Lotus, and Galactic as well as on their own have only broadened the band’s appeal. Wherever Moon Hooch plays, a dance party soon follows.
