Elliott Moses September 1, 2018:

The Black Irish name comes from a movie called Lady from Shanghai made in 1948 . A film Noir starring Orson Welles ,and his than wife Rita Hayworth . His character Michael O’Hara, nicked names Black Irish , falls for the wrong woman . Salvador Dali did the set designs. A great flick.

As far as the band’s music is concerned , our influences are Americana, Blues, Folk, and from the boom of all that generation and we try to write great songs infusing all that to have a unique sound that comes from a combination of all that and our own musical stamp . Writing is something we all share a great passion for.

I (Elliott Moses) have been playing in bands in Detroit since age 16 , “I’ve seen a lot of crazy things musically happen and been in few bands but this is hands down the best group of musicians I’ve ever had the pleasure to be in the company of .

Thanks to Skip who introduced me to Matt La Pinta and Matt Hamann.“ We started to dig on each other musically, started having writing sessions at La Pinta’s house, and songs just started pouring out!

It got to moving so fast that we decided to try to put a band together . So we could play them live. I asked Paul who since the original line up had broke up a few years ago to come in and put some vocals down and everything just started falling in to place.

Dylan McCarty has been my go to for skins for 10 years. He’s a beast on drums but even more so then that is his attention to detail. Steve Nowicki finishes up the on percussion.

Maybe Tomorrow is title of the Black Irish EP and is the title of one of our songs. We are looking for a local label to work with but haven’t found one yet. We are still hoping to find one here instead of out of town . Detroit really needs a fresh Kick in the Ass and we’re that Band!

Heavy hitting blues-infused rock with a Detroit twist! Black Irish celebrates the release of their brand new album at the Magic Bag on Friday, September 28. The doors open at 8pm and tickets are $12 in advance. The Black Drops and Dude kick off the festivities.

Caveman Woodman and Blue Snaggletooth? Sounds like an episode of the Flinstones, doesn’t it? Not in Ypsilanti and not in the breakfast joint-turned-music venue-soon to be taco stand? 

Thursday through Saturday, Jukebox Productions will host Fuzz Fest. 3 nights of Loud, Fun, Fuzzy, Overdriven, Rock & Roll. Ever since Willie Johnson of Howlin’ Wolf’s band cranked up his gain in the early ‘50s, guitarists have been searching for awesome, loud, bone crunching, distortion. Michigan has been a hot bed of high-intensity rock and roll since the ‘60’s and this week you can hear an awesome sampling of what that search has returned.

Caveman Woodman is gnarly, swamp stomp, dirt covered, fur wrapped musical evolution. You may have caught him guerilla rocking outside a Detroit show or playing atop the cement patio wall outside of PJ’s Lagerhouse and now you can see him in Ypsi on stage as a duo with Bam Bam Moss.

“We're super excited to play Fuzz fest. It's just me on fender jag and Brandon (Bam Bam) Moss (the drummer for Bars of Gold) playing primitive, fun, train off the tracks rock-n-roll! We have a vinyl record coming out on Bellyache Records on May 31rst. We're really excited about Friday night’s lineup. Chit Chat is one of our new faves.”

Blue Snaggletooth

Blue Snaggletooth is “Psychedelic, D&D, Rock & Roll with muscular grooves and furious guitar work”. Fronted by Chris Taylor (Mazinga, Powertrane, and Michigan legend Scott Morgan) and featuring Guitarist Casey O'Ryan and bassist Joe Kupiec, both rock & roll prodigies steeped in hard rock and classic boogie. "They're not brothers, but they should be," says Taylor. Mike Popovich drives the train from at the helm of the drumkit. The band’s first release, ‘Dimension Thule’ sold out its first pressing and the band is working on a new album.

Both of these awesome acts are on the Friday night bill along with 9 other great Michigan acts.Here’s the lineup below and a link for more info on all 3 high-intensity nights of Fuzz Fest.
