Some funky energy…a helping of rock and jam intensity…shake on some soul and jazz. That’s the flavor of Moonliscious. Originally formed in 2008 through the combination of two musical projects, the band has developed a steady and devoted following in the Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia region. Featuring a sound that has been described as “The Funky Meters meets Steely Dan,” with a little bit of DC go-go swing, the 5-piece has been moving both brains and backsides from the ocean shores to the West Virginia mountains, from the Philly streets to the Virginia countryside.

We have also performed at the Washington and Philadelphia Rock and Roll Marathons for the past 6 years and at the Marine Corps Marathon for the past 2 years. We always try to keep the runners motivated and entertained!
