Biography

Connecting. With the Carol Moog Band, it's all about connecting--with the music, with the other players, with the audience, with the gut and heart and soul of the vibe. Moog started out playing piano and then Sonny Terry reached in and grabbed her hard. Something inside told her she could play harmonica, and it never let go. She's shared billing with legends such as John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guiy, Junior Wells, John Hammond, Edgar Winter/Leon Russell, Koko Taylor and John Mayall. She's traveled all over the world and played with bands in India, Thailand, Tunisia, Hungary and Tiwi Islanders, to name a few.

In addition to his impassioned vocals, Don Evans' outrageously hot guitar playing has resulted in his having performance credits that read like a Who's Who of rock and roll. His stage time includes years playing and recording with Billy Joel, Dirk Hamilton and Eric Burdon of the Animals.

Lenny Fatigati, to the limitless joy of all, succeeded early on in convincing his parents that he should be allowed to trade in his accordian for a bass. It's been a fabulous ride for him since then. He' s a powerful, creative presence in the band, adding a huge, rich sound and truly awesome solos.

Michael O'Rourke is a versatile drummer who's performed in Atlantic City casinos, in New York's Catskills, on the Norwegian Caribbean Cruise line and clubs in New York City and Philadelphia. He's performed wtih Woody Shaw, Valerie Ponomarev, Jimmy Bruno, Bootsie Barnes and Evelyn Simms, to name a few.
