Kangaroo Moon weave many strands from world, rock, folk and dance, with acoustic and electronic influences into a funky, psychedelic, heart-lifting wall of sound. Trancy, richly melodic and dancey, listeners experience a sound which unites the body and soul in deep, joyful psychedelia and elemental dance.
The Band still has a large pool of associated musicians who appear at various occasions, so Kangaroo Moon continues to be a many headed marsupial with regular surprises. Gigs in Europe and Australia over the past few years have featured different line-ups, some of these past and present musicians include;
BASS: Dave Sturt , Maurice Cernigoi (down under)
GUITARISTS: Jerry Bewley, Steve Berry (down under)
DRUMS: Matt Ledgar – the fairy god drummer. Myke Vince – based in Bristol. Ian Campbell – ex Doctor Didg sticksman. Rick Cole – the most distinguishly coiffeured member of the band played on 2003’s Europe tour and in Australia 2004. Greg Sheehan – awesome Aussie Percussionist.
With such a dynamic pool of musicians to call on, Kangaroo Moon’s musical spectrum has widened more than ever with electro squelchy psychedelic funk, ethno celto folk and everything in between getting a look in. The latest edition to the Kangaoo Moon brand is the KANGAROO KYLIE BAND – ceilidh band with dance caller.
Kangaroo Moon – living proof that even teleport travel causes jetlag, nurtured in two cultures, two hemispheres, hopping from summer to summer across the planet born of the European dreaming joining the ancient dreamtime of Australia, carried by a vision to play music for all the people everywhere, and to find the keys to the van.
