Moondog's Blues Band

This three-piece blues band is possessed in performance – heartfelt and real.

Moondog plays a multitude of AllyTyn guitars during each performance – a jook joint in a biscuit tin! His instruments are mostly metal… and modestly abused. His nocturnal freight train voice plus blues harp is the real sound of the blues.

The band plays traditional blues to rock-n-blues-a-billy-roll with drummer Ben Michelsen standing up next to Moondog, beating & stomping the good-times out of a custom drum kit and Matt Shepherd on bass, locking it all together – the way only a three-piece unit can.

The Moondog's Blues Band plays live gigs all over New Zealand and Australia performing as a full band, a two-piece with Moondog and Ben on drums, or solo as a Moondog-only experience. This band can keep the blues rolling all night, or play a punchy and exciting festival set – and anything in between.
