Moon Hooch began busking in the subway platforms of NYC in 2010, quickly getting noticed by the NYPD, who had to ban them from locations that couldn’t handle the crowds. In a few short years they were opening for the likes of Beats Antique, They Might Be Giants, and Lotus, while selling out their own headline shows at marquee venues around the United States and Europe. Their unconventional sound and techniques, utilizing found objects like traffic cones, landed them appearances on NPR’s Tiny Desk in America, “Later…with Jools Holland” in the UK, “Hamish & Andy’s Gap Year” in Australia, and private audiences with the Premier League’s Chelsea F.C. They are currently touring the world.
Honeycomb has some incredible buzz in 2023, on the heels of his recent performance at Red Rocks as support for Mersiv. He performed “In the round” which only a few artists have ever had the opportunity to do – a full 360 performance inside the sold out crowd of 10,000 people. Family photo & recap post here to catch a vibe. As with all Honeycomb performances – he brings multiple synths, drum machines, loopers, talkbox, and the gadgets required to produce live beats on the fly and with his mouth. Honeycomb is a world renown beatboxer recognized for doing something people have never seen before – making entire songs entirely from his mouth live right in front of you. Earlier in the year, Honeycomb landed a rare opportunity to join a Broadway musical in Las Vegas at The Venetian Resort, titled “Freestyle Love Supreme”. FLS is a Tony award winning improv musical started by the celebrated playwright Lin-Manuel Miranda, with guest performances from Wayne Brady (Whose Line Is It Anyway?) and more. Honeycomb had nightly performances in the theater and found it to be one of the most profound experiences of his career. Honeycomb’s Broadway invitation came following a 19 date national tour with the hip-hop legend T-Pain, after T-Pain discovered Honeycomb on Twitch. If you haven’t checked out this video before, it’s entertaining to watch T-Pain get his mind blown by Honeycomb, and it’s a great display of Honeycomb’s performance routine and the style of beats he is making on the fly.
