Dewey Paul Band
Dewey Paul Moffitt is an accomplished singer-songwriter, music business insider, author, and an admired talent in the Colorado live music scene. The Dewey Paul Band's Americana sound features Moffitt on guitar and vocals, Jessica Rose Moidel on fiddle, Tyler Easton on bass, and Ben E. King on drums.
Boasting an industry resume' with more than twenty years of outstanding achievements, Moffitt primarily focuses his energy on creating and performing in the live concert environment. The resulting sound is pure improv-influenced Americana, or "Americana Blues" as he calls it.
"I would consider it lyrically driven folk rock with splashes of improvisational jamming thrown in every so often. It seems everyone has the need to compare you to someone and I hear a lot of people say Lou Reed, Petty, Springsteen and Dylan. It's certainly an honor when I hear those things." Moffitt says.
The Dylan influence seems like an obvious one, considering Moffitt often fronts a few all-star cover bands and projects paying tribute to Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, and Jerry Garcia (Garcia Van Dylan, Postcards Of The Hanging, Dylan66). He hosts an annual charity event on Dylan's birthday honoring the music and songs of Dylan. 2011's "CALE: A Tribute to J.J. Cale" actually features Moffitt performing all the instruments himself, ala Todd Rundgren style, in the world's first and only solo tribute album to legendary Tulsa blues musician J.J. Cale (After Midnight, They Call Me the Breeze, Cocaine, etcetera). The project was also completely funded by fans through the crowdsourcing website Pledge Music (London, UK). Moffitt has recently performed internationally in Ireland, the UK, and parts of Europe.
Recently, Moffitt released a memoir chronicling his formative years called Bohemian Ghosts: A Memoir, which recounts the authors many adventures in the psychedelic Grateful Dead and Jam Band scene (Allmans, Phish, Panic, Blues Traveler, Pfunk). From his parking lot days to working backstage, the book examines how that wild counter-culture world impacted his early adult years and allowed him to discover his passion for the concert industry. Included are wonderful, if sometimes embarrassing, tales that will interest you as music fans and fellow travelers, and there are even some shocking and juicy romantic stories you are certain to enjoy.
"On one hand the (music) business is extremely harsh and unforgiving, and on the other hand when you are fortunate enough to participate in that magical exchange with an audience, I have found nothing more rewarding than that. Music is the medicine for the human soul, and I cannot imagine a life without it." Moffitt says.
2015 brings a new release of original material for the Dewey Paul Band, "Alachua Summit", and a new addition to the group, violinist Jessica Rose Moidel. The album contains songs originally conceived in 1995 but with more recent updated performances from his current band lineup. Dewey Paul Band has three previous CD releases: "Cale (A Tribute To J.J. Cale)" (2011), "Ancient Heart" (2009), and "On The Devil's Highway" (2008).
In addition to Dewey's annual tribute to Bob Dylan, which started in 2005 and continues today, Moffitt also performs in a Colorado reenactment of The Band's famous Last Waltz concert (over 10 years running now) with Denver band Polytoxic. Additionally he has performed and jammed as a guest on stage with nationally touring bands Kris Lager Band, Lubriphonic, Paul Benjaman Band, Steepwater Band, Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, JGB's Melvin Seals, among countless others.
