The best kept secret in music



“In today’s corporate-run rock world, many bands do all they can to sound just like whomever is riding the crest of the marketing wave. For them, bucking the system and forging an original sound is not an option. It is just too scary. Blue Moon Harem, on the other hand, does almost all they can to be different….It is a fresh approach to fresh music that BMH has proudly worn as a badge of courage, despite criticism from more safety-minded music lovers.” (Mathew S Robinson)


"Put aside musical genre labels and preferences and prejudices, slap this on, and just SMILE kids. You would have to be the most cynical bastard on the planet not to experience something akin to happiness upon listening to this CD - a blend of techno, R&B, and enough of those fat-ass guitar chords, of which I am so enamored, to make this just flat irresistible…” (Tim Emswiler)

"Blue Moon Harem “Self Titled”"

May 2004
"Brought to you by the same producer who gave us Dropkick Murphy’s and Mighty Mighty Bosstones, this is yet another unique experiment in rock and roll outside the box. Rather than scooping together unlikely genre’s like the above bands, Blue Moon Harem blend more likely partners such as rock, funk, pop, and techno. I think that funk is the key element here. The whole album stays in a nice cool, strange place that seems very hip and happening. It’s often mellow. Its never cliché." Reviewed by Mark - -

"I have no idea how to describe this disc, and for that I love it. A polished rock and roll triumph. This disc is full of the kind of music that you'd hear on the radio if radio didn't suck so much. A sound that defies comparisons and catchy riffs make this a really good disc." (MK) - Impact Press magazine

"Blue Moon Harem"

Blue Moon Harem - Blue Moon Harem

"Blue Moon Harem’s self-titled album was produced by Jim Siegel’s whose previous undertakings have included Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Dropkick Murphy’s. But don’t think of this as a punk or ska-influenced album; indeed it couldn’t be further from that with its wealth of techno-fused funky rock. Starting off with a funky bass line that just begs for instant grooviness and dancing, Blue Moon Harem shred the conventions and opt for funk where most would insert some sort of fast-paced tempo pulse. Lyrically its intuitive musings that compose most of its mass while percussion clicks down the clock to the time-bomb that inevitably resides somewhere deep within each track." - J-Sin -

Feeling a bit camera shy


Take part rock, part funk; add in some pop and techno – what’s the end result? Boston’s multi-styled and distinctive Blue Moon Harem. They’ve created a unique sound that covers different genres and has become their trademark.
The rock band Blue Moon Harem was originally a studio project started in 1998. Bix, the lead vocalist, and Demetri had been working together for over 10 years and were in the hard rock band Requiem together. “In 1999 we started a new project in the studio, which became Blue Moon Harem.” The band has been playing their instruments since early childhood...with Demetri starting at age 8 and, Bix had started singing and writing songs at 10.
The self-titled album, produced by Jim Siegel (Dropkick Murphy’s, Mighty Mighty Bosstones) was a unique experience for the group based off his unique recording techniques.
“The method of how we recorded our CD was so different than conventional methods that the music had no choice but to sound very different and unique,” says Demetri. “We started with guitars only. Jim set aside 8 free tracks and I was asked to play whatever came to mind. I played random chords, made random sounds etc. then we went back and listened. There were these little pieces and little sections that clearly stuck out. Those little pieces were then cut and looped to repeat themselves and inserted on to a new track.
After layering a few of these looped sounds together a new sound was emerging. It was this process that made it possible to come up with the music. Now that we had a cool groove going we then needed to decide what musical changes should happen and where. To get a better idea we would then turn to Bix who then would write some lyrics and record his tracks over the groove. Once some initial vocal tracks were laid, we all had a better understanding of where the song wanted to go…Notice how we said “where the “song” wanted to go...These songs essentially wrote themselves…It was more of a discovery mission as opposed to a writing mission. Once the overall form of the song was mapped out the bass and drums were added to provide for the rhythm section. The result of this is an album that has the rock sound with a vibe all its own.
The band has toured the east coast doing various shows in Maine, MA, CT, and NYC. “We love playing live.” Say Demetri. The band is looking forward to promoting the CD and is in the process of reaching out to various music editors for placement in TV and film scores.
