We’re back at The Monarch in Camden tomorrow evening for a great line up hosted as always by yours truly. We’ll be taking the stage full band at 9:30 and sharing the bill with Jack Joseph Band, Dan Raza, and Dave Santos & The Odds n’ Ends. Entry is free all night at Chalk Farm Folk and it’s definitely worth a visit if you’ve never been down. Check out the event page HERE!
We can’t even believe it’s been 2 year’s since ‘Don’t Say No!’ was released! For those of you who haven’t had the chance to hear the full album straight through, here’s a treat for you….
…and also a few behind the scenes shots from our work getting it down in Soup Studio.
We are thrilled to be asked back to Green Days this year as part of Bedford Park Summer Festival. There are so few festivals to be found right in London and this is surely a little gem in the rough! Last year we fled back from Somerset after an ambitious weekend of 4 gigs in just 2 days. Bedford was our final pit stop on the tour and while on the car ride there we thought we might just not have been up to it, we arrived to a warm, sunny day with bright blue skies and cheerful crowds. The crew were relaxed and super sweet and let us have a slight recoup period (Pimms and Hot Sausage Butties) before taking the stage. It was the perfect finish to a hectic weekend.
Last year we closed the festival as a duo and we will be taking the same slot this year but instead we will be playing full band. Join us on Sunday, 14th June in Chiswick at 5pm for the show. The festival takes place on Acton Green directly across from Turnham Green Tube station and you will find the bandstand right around the middle of the park. With today being the warmest day of 2015 so far, you can almost feel the rays of a June sun off in the distance….almost...Good times.
Oh so long overdue….we finally took a day out to settle in at SJB’s Dungeon of Sound (a.k.a the legendary Sam Beer’s house) for a creative purge. Steve’s Rockabilly project, Emily’s Solo Ep, and M&M’s 3rd full length album all got a nod in the session with trials of about 15 new tracks. The birds were chirping, the sirens were only occasional, and the day went by far too quickly but we’re pretty damn pleased to get the ball rolling. Here are a few photo’s of the session and hopefully we can debut one or two of the tracks online soon enough! xx
Ready to shed those Winter blues! – New music, full band gigs, and Chalk Farm Folk moves to Thursdays!23 Feb
Slowly but steadily 2015 is looking way up. The days are getting longer, Spring is nearly at our door, and Mahoney & The Moment are finally cooking up some good music news. We broke into the new year with our final Tuesday event at The Monarch on the 27th of January along side Bird Radio, Ellie O’Keeffe and StevieRay Latham. That night we headlined with our first full band set in ages, welcoming on board the massively talented Ashley Hallinan on drums. Omitting to post about this last month was a true disgrace as it was possibly the best poster imaginable (see down below). We are now thrilled to bring our British-infused Americana to Thursday nights at The Monarch as Chalk Farm Folk Returns this very Thursday, 26th February.
After a raining day’s band rehearsal in Chiswick yesterday we’re genuinely amped to shell out a few new songs that are primed for the upcoming 3rd album. If all goes as planned, we will be demoing the full catalogue of new material accrued over the last year and a half in the next month. There is so much to put down now that the lot is likely to spill into 2 full albums and 1 EP…nothing short of a creative purge! We also have some travelling on the horizon and non-CFF gigs to announce but we’ll get to that in our next post.
So, join us this week to sample 2 of our new tracks and enjoy what will be a full band showdown of CFF alums: The Yes Mess, Lazy Heart Parade and Black River Wild. We plan to send you all back to work on Friday morning tired (and maybe hungover) but definitely tapping your feet uncontrollably.
Tonight is our absolutely final gig of 2014 and it’s a Christmas special of course. There may be baby songs thrown into the mix no more than a few weeks old and quite possibly even a shocking Christmas cover. Afterwhich, Mahoney & The Moment will be sitting down to review the year in music, organize our new recording schedule and get a newsletter out with photos, vids, and fresh updates for 2015. Free entry tonight as always with Dj Stev Mayo spinning his playlist inbetween sets. Gonna be a cracker! In the meantime check out last year’s Christmas Single: “Don’t Say No! at Christmas” HERE
Tonight with free entry and music starting from 7:30, Chalk Farm Folk will be paying tribute to Neil Young all night long! With 6 acts spanning his long and quality catalog, it’s sure to be the perfect way to spend a rainy Tuesday in London. Joining the bill will be Mahoney & The Moment, Blind Atlas, Slow Wolf, Steve Hallam of Before The Gold Rush and many more! Come down to the Monarch in Camden on Chalk Farm High Road and sing along. x
