me. announced a short set of performances for the remainder of 2022, with special guests Nate Wilson on keys (Percy Hill) and Suke Cerulo on guitar (Schleigho). The announcement follows the release of a message to fans yesterday, in which the band discussed the condition of guitarist Chuck Garvey, who suffered a stroke in November.
“We would like to once again thank our famoe.ly for the love and support you have shown Chuck over the past five months,” the post read. “It continues to improve day by day, and your thoughts and energy have kept us going. It has become clear over the past few years that you can never know what tomorrow will bring, which makes the possibility of coming together as a more meaningful community. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating the life, music and family we’ve built over the past 30 years.
After appearances at Summer Camp, HarborFest and City Bisco in May and June, moe. will play a short series of shows in July, starting with a free performance in Albany, NY on July 6, and a few dates in September, including two nights in St. Helena, CA on September 23-24. A special artist pre-sale for select dates will begin at 12 p.m. ET tomorrow (4/27), and tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday, April 29 at 12 p.m. ET.

Praised by the American songwriter for his “astonishing musicality”, moe. is undoubtedly one of our most vital and inspired bands, beloved for their haunting musical synergy, expansive showmanship and resonant songs. Since forming in Buffalo, New York, the band have embarked on a truly original journey that spans more than three decades, encompassing a remarkably expansive discography rich with shrewd and intelligent songwriting and of a creativity that blurs genres. Their latest album “This Is Not, We Are” was released on June 26, 2020, marking the band’s 30th anniversary. Their 12th studio album and first since 2014, “This Is Not, We Are”, was followed by the 5-song EP, “Not Normal”, released on November 20, 2020.
Stunning studio output aside, moe. is of course a truly legendary live band, adored by fervent audiences for their epic and wildly adventurous performances, each imaginatively improvised, rhythmically daring and utterly unique. Indeed, the band have spent much of their 30-year career on the road, including countless tours, international festival sets from Bonnaroo to Japan’s famed Fuji Rock, music-themed cruises and sold-out shows alongside like-minded artists like the Allman Brothers Band, members of the Grateful Dead, Dave Matthews Band, The Who, Robert Plant, Gov’t Mule and Blues Traveler, to name but a few -ones. As if that weren’t enough, moe. has both promoted and performed at several top festivals including snoe.down and moe.down.
