After a wildly successful nationwide fall tour, Moonalice, along with special guests T Sisters and The New Chambers Brothers are poised and ready for the next chapter in the ever unfolding history and legend of the band, billing themselves into 2020 as Full Moonalice: The THC Revue.
The Moonalice ethos runs deep through the veins of this star studded, iconic rock band and at over 1,000 shows, continue to evolve, grow and expand their musical presence. The original five players – comprised of John Molo (Bruce Hornsby & The Range, John Fogerty, Phil Lesh & Friends, The Other Ones, David Nelson Band), Barry Sless (Phil Lesh & Friends, David Nelson Band, Kingfish, Cowboy Jazz), Roger McNamee (Guff, The Engineers, Random Axes, Flying Other Brothers), Pete Sears (Sam Gopal Dream, Rod Stewart, Jefferson Starship, Jerry Garcia, Hot Tuna, John Lee Hooker, David Nelson Band, Phil Lesh & Friends), and Jason Crosby (Robert Randolph & Susan Tedeschi) – are legends in their own right and will continue their own musical legacy throughout the music scene.
Now coming into a new decade, the original Moonalice lineup will now fully include The New Chambers Brothers and T Sisters for a new comprised cast of musicians billed Full Moonalice: The THC Revue. The new billing of the fully comprised group comes from the original The Chambers Brothers’ song “Time Has Come Today”, a nod to Moonalice’s musical evolution and additions.
Frontman of the classic rock group, The New Chambers Brothers, Lester Chambers, at 79 has no problem keeping up with this motley crew. His son Dylan Chambers (Midnight Transit), brings that electrifying Chambers energy, full of soul and funk to the stage with poise and an extremely high entertainment value. Rounding out this new 10-piece band, the T Sisters interject a refreshing, sassy and captivating presence that at times is seemingly haunting. Blood sisters Erika, Rachel,and Chloe Tietjen flow seamlessly between styles and moods with their eclectic sound and soaring harmonies.
“Joining forces with the T Sisters and The New Chambers Brothers allows Full Moonalice to take audiences on a mind bending musical journey through the sounds of the 60s. This is the most fun any of us has had in years,” McNamee said.
The group will kick off 2020 at San Rafael, CA’s Terrapin Crossroads on January 4th and will join Oteil & Friends, Billy & The Kids, Steve Kimock’s Voodoo Dead, Melvin Seals & JGB, Circles Around The Sun, and more in the celebration of the Grateful Dead at Skull & Roses Festival from April 2nd-4th.
