CRESCENT MOONLIGHT LOUNGE feat. MOONLIGHT MAGIC

CRESCENT MOONLIGHT LOUNGE feat. MOONLIGHT MAGIC

All original and all Instrumental Lounge/Exotica/Surf/Bossa Nova/Ska/Boogaloo combo from Phoenix.

MOONLIGHT MAGIC consists of veteran Phoenician musicians: Jaime Paul Lamb (composer/guitarist), ex-Van Buren Wheels, current member of Thee Faded Pyctures and Mighty Sphincter; Andrew Jemsek (organ/accordion/composer), an alumni of local faves the Andrew Jackson Jihad, Father's Day and Serene Dominic Band; Ruth Wilson (electric and upright bass), ex-member of Flathead and Acapulco 5-O; Eddy Detroit (percussion), a storied Phoenix icon and "tiki outsider/cult weirdo"; and Steve Asetta (saxophone/percussion), a frequent collaborator of Jaime's from NYC's jazz & avant garde music scene. MOONLIGHT MAGIC began due to a mutual love of all things lounge/exotica/bossa nova etc. and are all huge fans of composer/arrangers such as Martin Denny (from whose composition the band takes their name), Les Baxter, Burt Bacharach, Lalo Schifrin & Antonio Carlos Jobim. MOONLIGHT MAGIC plays all their own material, exclusively.

"It's rare when an instrumental ensemble can stand on its own with out being relegated to “background music”, and even more unusual that a band can define its own genre. There is no prior “lounge exotica” with the originality and mystique of MOONLIGHT MAGIC. These are experienced, informed musicians; hence the clever structure of their music alerts your ears to pay attention and go into “listening mode”— no “background” here. With surf-like themes drifting in and out of their live set, there is a musical atmosphere that is both reminiscent of the exotic 60’s and as relevant as NOW. MOONLIGHT MAGIC brings “lounge exotica” that is not “Background” Music; but more like a BACKDROP for the evening before you. It will be FAR OUT!"

Jeremie “bacpac” Franko has been writing, producing or hosting radio in New York and Arizona since 2000, and listens to all genres of music. She is currently the On-Air Host of Rockabilly Worldwide Mashup, featuring the global interpretation of American Roots music.
