Press


“If Frank Zappa were still alive, he would heartily approve of moosebutter. It's fairly hard to take these guys seriously, but one is pretty sure that's what they're after. With a combination of cheekiness and intelligence, they achieve amusement levels that will probably encourage cult-like adoration among fans. Expect these guys to be passed around for quite a while."

“moosebutter is an original, smart, laugh-your-pants-off-funny group. The vocals were fabulous. Weeks later, we’re still laughing. The shows at the University can be poorly attended, but moosebutter drew a huge, appreciative crowd.”
- Kendall Larson, Southwest Montana Arts Council


"It's difficult to type when I'm laughing so hard... MAN - what a great CD... 'I Hate Mosquitos' may become my all time moosebutter fave...but then there's 'HarryPotter'.... hmmm.... wait... there's 'Still The Shortest'....nuts...too many choices... BRAVO, gentlemen!"
- Rick Alloway, KRNU 90.3 Lincoln, NE



"moosebutter was amazing! Their comedic timing was spot-on, and their vocals were very engaging for the audience. Well done!"
- Michael Christensen, Utah Cultural Celebration Center


“[moosebutter] takes the a cappella style of music and turns what has the potential to be stiff into something funny and even irreverent.”
- The Daily Herald, Provo, UT


“Four authentic young comic geniuses. Funny, bizarre, weird, brilliant and totally bananas.” - Primarily A Cappella


“The best entertainment we’ve had at one of these things for the last twenty years.”
- Alpine Physicians, Alpine, UT

Bio

It might have been the bald man in the fourth row coughing popcorn up his nose because he was laughing so hard. It might have been that same man thanking the band for an amazing, fun show that both he and his teenaged son both loved. It might have been the hundreds of electified school audiences, the awards, the accolades, or the radio play. Whatever it was, somewhere along the line moosebutter figured out they had something different.

Created in Salt Lake City in 1999, moosebutter is an international award-winning and national-touring comedy a cappella ensemble. Born from a traditional college-style a cappella group, when Tim Jones took what he and the rest of the group liked most about a cappella – the novelty and comedy – and began creating new comedy songs and quirky renditions of known works. Quickly establishing a reputation as a seriously funny and strangely musical ensemble, moosebutter dissolved in 2001.

After a year of craving the crazy melodic moosebutter fix, Jones moved to a new city and found Glen Sawyer, Weston Wride, and Chris Harris, veterans of choirs, a cappella groups, and theater, who helped push moosebutter forward, develop their distinctive sound, and establish a national reputation as unique music and comedy entertainment. moosebutter developed an enormous repertoire of original, parody and novelty songs, allowing them to craft many distinct shows for schools, public concerts, performing arts programs, arts festivals, fairs, and corporate events.

After several years of incorporating other singers and musicians into their show, and relying on vocalists from other excellent area ensembles to fill in for shows and on tours, moosebutter branched out in 2006 with two distinctive groups – moosebutter Rocky Mountains East, based in the Boulder area of Colorado, and moosebutter Rocky Mountains West, based in Provo, UT. Each group has developed their own unique sound while retaining the core clean, goofy goodness that has brought moosebutter international acclaim. Each group is made up of the finest comedic musicians in each respective area.

moosebutter won first runner-up, and top American group, at the 2003 Harmony Sweepstakes International finals, also capturing the Best Original Song award. They placed second in the 2005 Los Angeles and 2006 Chicago Harmony Sweepstakes regionals, won the audience favorite award at the San Francisco regional in 2003 and in Chicago in 2006, were semi-finalists in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella in 2003, have won multiple Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards (Best Comedy Song, 2004, runner-up Best Comedy Album and Best Comedy Song, 2003), were featured on the compilation albums Dr. Demento’s Basement Tapes 2005 and Sing II (2005). Their 2006 tour took them to fairs, festivals, schools and concert halls in Utah, Chicago, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, Idaho, North Carolina, and Massachussetts.

moosebutter is in high demand as vocal competition clinicians, special educational program presenters, artistic consultants, studio vocalists, group performance coaches, event MCs… not to mention as superb entertainment for any event.
