Recently named one of WYEP's top five local bands for 2017, The Crew of the Half Moon are a three-piece rock-and-roll gypsy circus, reaching from grunge to folk to pop-punk to piano ballads and back again.
Both Dan and Kate are multi-instrumentalists, sharing time on the guitar, lap steel, mandolin, harmonica, bass guitar, and piano while singing dynamic vocal harmonies. Along with their drummer Jon, they bring an eclectic blend of genres to the stage. With their playful lyricism, powerful vocal delivery, and a steady rotation of instruments, The Crew creates a set that appeals to a wide array of music fans.
Although their sound is constantly evolving, their latest material has been compared to the Pixies, Pavement, the Meat Puppets, and the Cranberries. Their second full-length album, Blanket Fort Radio, was released on vinyl and on iTunes in October 2016.
