MoeTar announced for RoSfest 2013MoeTar is honored to be playing RoSfest 2013. May 5th in Gettysburg, PA. http://www.rosfest.com/
We're excited to announce that US band MoeTar have been signed for the 2013 edition of the Rites of Spring Festival.
MoeTar is named after vocalist Moorea Dickason and bassist Tarik Ragab, the former supplying an essential ingredient of the band's sound with her vocal skills and the latter the main songwriter. Matthew Charles Heulitt (guitars), Matt Lebofsky (keyboards) and Dave Flores (drums) supplement the duo with their instrumental skills and versatile musical backgrounds.
From the early days of the band to the launch of their official debut album "From These Small Seeds" through US label Magna Carta Records in 2012, MoeTar have sought to combine the challenging and adventurous aspects of progressive rock with the accessible and easily enjoyable qualities of modern day pop and rock, earning them comparisons towards artists as different as Frank Zappa, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles and XTC. Described by some, at least to some extent, as a US-based, modern day equivalent of Gentle Giant in terms of their approach to the art of creating music.
At ROSfest we're just as much fans of new artists working towards establishing a larger fan base as the well established and familiar ones. And we're convinced that MoeTar is a band that will gain many new fans following their performance at Gettysburg in May 2013, a fresh and innovative new band that will positively surprise a large percentage of the audience in general and the home crowd in particular.
