This month I’m interviewing Seattle, Washington’s own Moon. I’m talking to Ben Dorey (Vocals/Sax), Luke Swart (Bass/Vocals) and Robin Ray (Guitar/Keys/Vocals). We talk about the beginnings of Moon, why they like playing second wave ska as well as what it is like to be a ska band based in Seattle. We also get to listen to the songs “Get Some Sleep” and “Rough Weather” from their new album “the Landing”.
You can find Moon at:
Upcoming Moon shows in July & August
* Saturday, July 9 at 7:00pm at the Mirkwood Shire Cafe (Arlington, WA)
