The spotlight falls on the Reno-based soul/blues-infused rock quintet Moondog Matinee. Diffuser.fm describes the band’s music as follows: “Moondog Matinee’s music conveys a deep, rich understanding of gritty rock and roll that sounds like it was developed decades ago.” While The Source News says “In a world of pseudo-sexual anarchy, Moondog Matinee is the real deal.” Bend Bulletin describes the band as “bluesy, twangy sound and soulful swagger” while Jam in a Van describe the band as one “that doesn’t parade as anything, but rather, it just rocks.”
They’ve recently released two singles-“Ghost Dime” and “Last Night the Devil Learned My Name,”from their upcoming sophomore album Carry Me, Rosie, due out August 25.
The band have been selected as a Red Bull Sound Select artist and performed at the Inaugural Life is Beautiful Music Festival in Las Vegas, NV. They were voted the “Best Band in Northern Nevada” by the Reno News and Review. Moondog Matinee will start to tour up and down the west coast and will appear at the Lightening in a Bottle Music Fest,in anticipation of the release of Carry Me, Rosie.
