Moondogs Gypsy Blues Band play an honestly possessed kind of blues. It’s blues with fangs, black hats, tight pants, and a kick of cabaret for eye-candy.

Original, traditional and modern blues synthesised into a sound that gets you dancing and howling at the moon.

Moondog Gypsy Blues Band is a two-piece original blues band, developing their sound from the masters of old and new, such as Lightnin’ Hopkins, Tom Waits, and Bo Diddley.

Frontman Moondog uses a variety of guitars including slide and resonators, along with harp to complement his authentic, growling vocal.

The rhythm is provided by Kate La Jam playing standup drum kit, cajone and percussion.

So what makes MGBB rise above being just another blues band? Simply put, Moondog Gypsy Blues Band has a stage presence that’s raw, unedited MOJO. Their signature is simple yet strong drum rhythms supporting Moondog?s gutsy guitar and vocals.

Rails, Byron, tonight from 7pm and Lennox Hotel on Saturday from 9.30pm.
