Moon Hooch

moon hooch

Versatility by definition is an adjective used to describe something or someone as a variable or changeable, as in feeling, purpose or policy. I could not think of a better term to describe the three piece band out of Brooklyn known as Moon Hooch. Each member is from a completely different background. Wenzl McGowen (Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone and Contrabass) was born in the Canary Islands. Mike Wilbur (Tenor Saxophone, Vocals and Synth) was born and raised in Brockton, MA. James Muschler (drums) was born and raised in Cleveland. They came together while studying at New York’s prestigious New School. This is where Moon Hooch found its feeling, purpose and the policy with what they call Cave Music in the city’s subways. Fresh off a European tour, James Muschler took some time to culture Mother Plug Music on Cave Music and just how versatile Moon Hooch is!

Hey James, how are you doing?

JAMES: I’m doing great, how are you?

I’m good! Thank you for asking. So you guys just got back from touring in Europe?
