Walk The Moon

This tour has passed

Walk the Moon shows are nothing short of electric. Nicholas Petricca, lead singer, songwriter, and keyboardist, with bassist Kevin Ray, guitarist Eli Maiman and drummer Sean Waugaman, (all Ohio natives) streak, dot and smear their faces in paint before every performance. Eager crowds predictably join in the fun and by the end, even the most staunch skeptics are in the colorful mix. Respected regulars in the Cincinnati and Columbus club scenes, the boys, all in their early twenties, have garnered notable respect from fans and bands alike in their still very new presence on the international stage. Walk the Moon combine impressive musicianship with what the New York Post deems their “unrestrainable love for performing”… a truly contagious mix.

Matching what NME called “air strike choruses” with careful songwriting, Walk the Moon are dynamic – noticeably more than a “buzz band.” They cite Talking Heads, The Police and The Killers as inspiration, both in writing and performing, not to mention a tribute to Bowie with a thumping rendition of Let’s Dance. I Want! I Want! is thoughtful and youthful at once, a perfect reflection of the band; they possess an enviable spirit, one devoted to just plain having fun. And who doesn’t like fun?
