Moonalice is a psychedelic, roots-rock band that plays mostly original material mixed with some covers, drawing from many musical genres honed from years of experience playing with various major acts. For every Moonalice concert, a well-known artist creates an original art poster with a unique Moonalice legend, distributed for free to all attendees. You can check out past Moonalice concert posters here. Moonalice’s digital logs are a part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame because, in the R&R Hall of Fame’s own words, Moonalice helps “tell the story of music’s digital revolution; specifically the rise of direct-from-artist (DFA) distribution.” Moonalice is the first band without a label to achieve one million downloads of a song from its own servers, direct-from-artist. “It’s 4:20 Somewhere” has been downloaded over two million times.
SF Airship Acoustic is about keeping the legendary sound of Jefferson Airplane alive and thriving. San Francisco Airship brings that wonderful Summer of Love vibe to our time, with classic hits like “White Rabbit”, “Somebody To Love”, “Wooden Ships”, “Volunteers” and many more. Members have performed with Jefferson Starship, Blue Cheer, Quicksilver Messenger Service, The Tubes, Big Brother & The Holding Company, New Riders Of The Purple Sage, and more. In the own words, “We grew up with their music, and maybe you did too. But we’ve discovered in performance that it’s relevant even to people who weren’t around for the original band… And, we’re not just performers, we’re fans. So we do our best to honor the spirit of the original music. We’re not trying to duplicate it so much as resurrect it. We’re bringing it back with the full force that only live music can do. We are SF Airship Acoustic. Come along with us.”
