The 2013 recipient of “Best Tribute Album” by Baltimore Magazine, Mobtown Moon seeks to unapologetically recreate Pink Floyd’s legendary LP “Dark Side of the Moon” in an original, eclectic mix of musical styles. The project has brought together over 40 Baltimore musicians, whose musical experiences include jazz, classical, bluegrass, hip-hop, and rock, to completely reimagine the iconic record. It’s a tribute album that pays homage to a classic in a never heard before way, fusing together a variety of genres and musical styles.
The ambitious project is the brain child of writer and musician Sandy Asirvatham and award-winning singer/songwriter ellen cherry (lowercase intentional.) Mobtown Moon’s first performance, a visually thrilling premiere inside Baltimore’s Kraushaar Auditorium on September 28, 2013, was received with acclaim:
“Mobtown smartly nods to Dark Side’s classic status without being too reverent.” – John Lewis, Baltimore Magazine
Mobtown Moon is available on a CD released just in time for the 40th anniversary of Dark Side of Moon, and more live performances are in the works.
