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
Yo kids. Mahoney & The Moment are ready for fall.
We are planning records, polishing new set lists, and back for another evening of Americana at The Monarch. Chalk Farm Folk, right smack on high road in Camden will be free entry as always and kicking off from 8pm featuring us and 3 other great acts. All new to the night, we’ll be joined by Dani Blue, Dave Santos, and (part of) The Rude Vandals. Swing by for a beer, stay for the love.
We are pulling out a special duo set at one of of favourite London venues, The Old Queen’s Head as part of eAR Music’s Sunday Social. We’ll be joined by fellow Chalk Farm Folkers, The Yes Mess, as well as Jesper Ejrup, Nakisha Esnard, Joseph Lofthouse, Tom Savage, Orfan, Elk, Datum Plane, and Life Cycle. Music Runs from 3pm to 11pm with cozy couches, delicious roasts, and an all round perfect lazy Sunday atmos.
Tonight we’re aiming for a nearly new as can be set, stuffing in a handful of yet unrecorded gems.Join us upstairs for a lovely evening.
Chalk Farm Folk returns to Camden tonight and so do we! Mahoney & The Moment will be joining the bill along with Blind Atlas, Son of Kirk, and Ma Polaine’s Great Decline. We hunkered down for a very productive rehearsal over the weekend to work out some of the new material we’ve been dreaming up. The last 6 months have been musically fruitful for both our next band album and some top secret special solo projects. The studio is a-calling!
If all goes as planned, we will be trying on one or two of the new tunes for size this evening when we kick off our event at 8pm. See you there x
Join us tonight with Black River Wild, Eran Karniel, and Turnstile Junkpilie. Steve and I will be kicking off the night with a uke-only set…should be a treat!
