Moe.

"moe. is an American jam band, formed at the University at Buffalo in 1990. The band members are: Rob Derhak (bass, vocals), Al Schnier (guitar, vocals, keyboard), Chuck Garvey (guitar, vocals), Vinnie Amico (drums), and Jim Loughlin (percussion). The band's first record, Fatboy (1992), established the band as a favorite of the 1990s jam band and improvisational rock scene that grew in popularity with bands such as Phish, the Dave Matthews Band, and Widespread Panic. Just as Grateful Dead followers were coined 'Dead Heads', avid moe. fans embrace the term 'moe.rons.' moe. toured with the 1997 Furthur Festival, appeared at Woodstock '99, played in Central Park, opened for The Allman Brothers and The Who, and performed at Radio City Music Hall on New Year's Eve 2006.

During an interview, guitarist Al Schnier was asked to describe moe. for those who have never heard their music: 'It's an amalgamation of a wide variety of the history of rock, all regurgitated and recycled through the eyes, ears, hands, whatever of the guys in our band and all of that with a sense of adventure, a sense of humor, also a constant desire to push the envelope. All in this arena of taking chances, improvising live, and making things up on the spot.'"
