Tim Moore And His Band
The Colony Woodstock proudly presents Tim Moore’s first live show since he was sidelined by a major house fire in late 2016. He’ll be debuting new songs with a band that includes one-time B-52’s bassist Sara Lee and They Might Be Giants vet Dan Hickey. Be sure to buy tickets early for this special Summer Solstice show. This will be Tim’s first show at the Colony since its rebirth. Tickets are $21 in advance, $25 at the door – available at colonywoodstock.com.
The five albums Tim Moore released on David Geffen's Asylum label contain a body of critically-acclaimed songs that locked in Moore's reputation as a master songsmith. His songwriting has been praised by peers as diverse as Keith Richards, Jimmy Webb, Frank Zappa, Elton John, Tom Waits and James Taylor. Over forty artists have covered Tim Moore songs including Art Garfunkel, Cher, Etta James, and Richie Havens. Moore’s classic ballad, “Second Avenue” is heralded as one of the most poignant love songs of the rock era. His guitar anthem “Rock and Roll Love Letter” was covered by numerous acts including the Bay City Rollers.
Tim Moore hails originally from Philadelphia where he went to art school and co-led a band with Daryl Hall (Hall and Oates). After moving to Woodstock, Tim played a label audition at Bob Dylan’s house and was signed by Steely Dan producer, Gary Katz. After a few more twists, a bidding war for Moore erupted between record moguls Clive Davis and David Geffen. Moore chose to sign with Geffen’s prestigious artist roster at Asylum Records (Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Eagles, Tom Waits).
A multi-instrumentalist, Moore’s piano and guitar styles span a catalog of genres from rock, soul and folk to jazz and neo-romantic ballads. His musical life is packed with tales that include stepping into Keith Richards’ vacant guitar spot for a week of all-night sessions with the Rolling Stones, winning $30,000 grand prize in the American Song Festival and becoming an overnight pop sensation in Brazil.
Just before his house fire sidelined him in 2016, Moore led the band in an all-star tribute to Lou Reed for the 50th anniversary of Max’s Kansas City. This special Colony show will be his first time on stage leading a band since that appearance.
Tim’s band features English bassist Sara Lee (B-52’s, Robert Fripp, Indigo Girls, Ani Di Franco), drummer Dan Hickey (They Might Be Giants, Joe Jackson, Joe Cocker), Rob Stein on pedal steel and guitar (the Mammals), and Neil “Nail” Alexander on keys (Mahavishnu Project). More guest singers and players will be announced soon.
