moe. band member Al Schnier described the band's music to Relix Magazine as "an amalgamation of a wide variety of the history of rock, all regurgitated and recycled through the eyes, ears, hands, whatever of the guys in our band and all of that with a sense of adventure, a sense of humor, also a constant desire to push the envelope." His description is part of the reason that the fan base for moe. grows every year. The group has sold out venues of all sizes, proving moe. tickets are a tough thing to get.
Described by Rolling Stone magazine as a "legendary jam band," moe. has reached incredible heights coming from very humble beginnings. moe. was formed by members Chuck Garvey, Rob Derhak and Ray Shwartz in 1990 under the name Five Guys Named Moe. They began playing the Buffalo bar scene after the addition of Al Schnier, where they were able to form a sound that they could uniquely call their own. They independently released their first album Fatboy (1992) which was recorded and mixed in ten days. Over the years since moe. was formed they have released nearly fifteen studio albums and re-released Fatboy in 1999. moe. also released a series of live recorded shows titled Warts and All; the five volumes were recorded at various times from 2001 through 2007.
moe. has used their popularity to help raise money for great causes as well. In 2005 they held a Tsunami Benefit concert in New York City, which helped to raise $155,000 for charity. They have also been very giving to the cause of autism, performing at a concert that raised $35,000 and donating $38,000 themselves.
