- Heymoonshaker are the unlikely pairing of two art forms that are decades apart; Grit-your-teeth, raw, blues guitar and expansive, heart-pounding beatboxing. Urbanizing blues music now for little over a year, Andy Balcon and Dave Crowe are extremely talented at their craft but what impresses most and has made their commitment to Beatbox Blues so successful is the indescribable chemistry these two have on stage. The musical sparring of Crowe's powerful beats versus Andy's possessed vocals forge together like two pieces of iron, creating an inspired piece of creativity and originality.
On stage their ability to bring the crowd under their control and command it with ease is something only the best musicians possess, and it's clear their early beginnings as street performers have gifted them with this power. Last year the 'lads' were invited to support Ghostpoet, De La Soul and Baxter Dury at Marseille's Marsatac Festival, with Rolling Stone Magazine describing their performance as "Dazzling!". This summer Heymoonshaker have appearances at over 10 UK festivals including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, WOMAD, Kendal Calling, Green Man Festival… the list goes on!
Heymoonshaker have amassed a huge YouTube following with their official YouTube channel at a staggering 15 million views. Take a look at recent video 'Ten Letter Word' for a taste of what to expect from this unique project but make sure you head to see them live to get the whole experience – it is spectacular!
