Dublin, County Dublin
Moo is a four-piece band from Dublin with a sound that incorporates a wide sonic palette - from Rockabilly to Rock, Latin-American grooves and Cinematic Western Scores. Aside from their unique songwriting, what really sets them apart is the fire, commitment and energy that goes into their live performances. This is a band made up of true believers in the power of rock n’ roll!
These proselytes come from all over: Claudio Mercante – guitarist and vocals, from Italy; Darren Flynn – basstist and vocals, from Ireland, Sebastian Jezzi – drummer, percussionist and vocals, from Argentina and Guillermo González Rodríguez – pianist and vocals, from Spain. They have been drawn together, almost as if by fate, each bringing with them their own individual sound, to make up a whole which is definitely more than the sum of its parts.
They are currently putting the finishing touches to their latest album, working with producer Gavin Glass on what is turning out to be an amazing record.
To date they have released two records – Wanted (2011) and Tall Tales (2013) – both available on iTunes.
2014 was their biggest year yet, with touring the UK, headlining the Trailer Park Stage at the Electric Picnic, playing at Life Festival, Fortstock, Carlow Arts Festival, and Light Colour Sound to name but a few, along with touring extensively all over the country.

2-U-I-Bestow: “One of the top ten acts to check out at this Year’s Vantastival” http://2uibestow.blogspot.ie/2013/04/mix-vantastival-2013-this-weekend.html
State.ie: If you like great music and energy that borders on menacing then this is the band for you. Combining a rootsy, rockabilly music with a rather abrasive vocal delivery and lyrics that absolutely insist on further listening, this band were unlike much else on display at this years showcase(Hard Working Class Heros)
Hot Press: “exuberant...rough, ready and raucous”
