Buffalo-bred jam band moe. was a part of the maiden voyage of the Suwannee Rising Music Festival taking place over the past weekend (April 4-6). As Live for Live Music reported, the first generation jammers closed out the festival with one marathon set due to a strict curfew at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak Florida. Despite the time strictures, fans did not walk away disappointed.
The performance saw moe. sandwiching the entire set between opening and closing renditions of the fan favorite “Rebubula.” The band kicked of the set with the classic moe. number--from their 1996 debut live album Loaf--and left the tune unfinished as they segued into “Mar-DeMa.” Check out that performance above.
Moe. continued through their set which contained versions of “New Hope For The New Year,” “Puebla,” “Haze,” “Brittle End,” “Opium,” “Lazarus” and “Silver Sun” before heading back into “Rebubula” to close out the set. The band came back out for an encore featuring another fan favorite, “Recreational Chemistry,” to send festival goers home on a high note.
Moe's 2019 tour continues with a couple of shows in Colorado this summer at Denver’s Ogden Theatre on May 31 and the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre on June 1 where moe. will welcome Phish bassist Mike Gordon and Austin electro-rockers White Denim. Tickets for the Ogden show can only be bought as a bundle with the Red Rocks date. Purchase your (Tickets) here.
