I’m realizing more and more every day that you can make anything happen for yourself if you really want to,” says Moon Hooch horn player Mike Wilbur. “You can change your existence by just going out and doing it, by taking simple actions every day.” If any band is a poster child for turning the power of positive thoughts and intention into reality, it’s the explosive horn-and-percussion trio Moon Hooch. In just a few short years, the group—Wilbur, fellow horn player Wenzl McGowen, and drummer James Muschler—have gone from playing on New York City subway platforms to touring with the likes of Beats Antique, They Might Be Giants, and Lotus, as well as selling out their own headline shows in major venues around the country. They are buskers at heart and ready to tear into Fools with unabashed power. Watch them rip up Bank Street at the Magic Hat Pitch on Friday at 4:30 p.m.
You can also see them at the Fools After Party at Club Metronome. (Friday, 9 p.m. Show / 8:30 p.m. Doors. Ticketed).
