Ignition Music books moe. show for Wednesday

GOSHEN — The nationally-recognized band, moe., will perform at Ignition Music Garage in downtown Goshen on Wednesday, according to Ignition owner Steve Martin.

The concert, which will begin at 6 p.m., will also be broadcast live on 91.1. The Globe (WGCS).

Moe. is not a band that we could ever book to perform a concert,” Martin said. “They are used to playing arenas such as Red Rocks in Denver or other famous music theaters.”

Martin said the band will be interviewed on the air, play three or four songs and then be available for a meet and greet session with fans.

Widely considered one of the biggest acts on the jam band and festival scene for the past 20 years, moe. released its 20th album, “No Guts, No Glory” on May 27.

The five-member band — consisting of Al Schnier, Chuck Garvey, Rob Derhak, Vinnie Amico and Jim Loughlin — just began a tour that will take it across the U.S., Japan, Europe and Canada.

Jason Samuel, General Manager of 91.1 The Globe, is spending the month of June on a research project with The Americana Music Association. Sugar Hill Records, moe.’s record label, shares offices in the same building.

“They asked if there was a record store around South Bend where moe. could stop on their off day,” Samuel said. “We offered them this opportunity in The Globe’s home town.”

The band formed at the University at Buffalo in 1989 and released its first studio album, “Fatboy,” in 1992. Growing in popularity throughout the decades, moe.’s fans refer to themselves and moe.rons. The band has opened for Allman Brothers and The Who. It also performed at Woodstock ’99 and at the Bonnaroo Music Festival five times.

Ignition Music Garage is located at 120 E. Washington St., Goshen. While the moe. show on Wednesday is free, you must have a ticket to be admitted. There will be no exceptions. Members can pick up tickets only at Ignition Music Garage from 10 a.m. until noon on Saturday. They will be available to the public starting at noon. There will be a limit of two per person. There are no phone or Internet reservations for this event. All tickets will be distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis.
