Biography

Rocketing towards Earth from the farthest regions of the galaxy comes Moon Boot Lover... invigorating, awe-inspiring, and reminiscent of the comic storylines that spin fantastical super heroes. The name reflects the imagination of their leader, Peter Prince, the magician in the moon boots who fuels this rocketship of soul. With charisma and stage presence to be reckoned with, and having to be witnessed live to be truly understood, Peter never fails to incite an ecstatic & unpredictable performance, igniting everyone in the room... band and fans alike. Unparalleled by anything in the known galaxy, the band continues its mission of delivering their own brand of 'Rock-ET Soul' -- an electrifying blend of the enchantment of Al Green, the guitar wizardry of Jimi Hendrix, the spellbinding songwriting of Jim Croce, and the rock grandeur of Grand Funk Railroad and Led Zeppelin -- to the people of Earth. Those who have been witness to Moon Boot Lover sightings know they are a show not to miss!

Since Moon Boot Lover's inception, Peter Prince has remained the source of the band's musical gravity, piloting the ship with an ever-commanding presence and fearlessness. As the band's perpetual front man, vocalist, guitarist and songwriter, Peter has been orbited over the years by an all-star crew that has included such notable talents as Alan and Neal Evans (Soulive), drummers Swiss Cris (John Legend, Earthdriver) and Andy Herrick (Assembly of Dust), bassists Jon Hawes (formerly of Percy Hill), Nate Edgar (John Brown's Body) and Owen Yost, (Broadway productions such as "Movin' Out" and "Aida"), and Jeremiah Hosea (James Blood Ulmer, Gigi, and Earthdriver). The current missions feature the rhythm section of bassist Ben Carle (Jerkwater Ruckus, Lo Faber Band) and Eric Imbrosciano (Rezi, Pungee).

Having toured the country many times over in the last dozen years, Peter Prince has shared the stage with such diverse musical talents as Derek Trucks Band, Dave Matthews-collaborator Tim Reynolds, moe., longtime Frank Zappa vocalist/guitarist Ike Willis, Keller Williams, Umphrey's McGee and Maceo Parker to name a few. As a result, the Peter Prince & Moon Boot Lover fanbase has grown to include music lovers from many different walks of life... all of which though, so far, appear to be human. With heavy year-long touring, including dates at popular summer festivals such as Gathering of the Vibes, moe.down, Berkshire Mountain Music Festival, Wormtown Music Festival, and Strangefolk's Garden of Eden festival, Moon Boot Lover has continually drawn the attention of new fans wherever they land. Peter was even tapped to co-host the first annual Jammys, an awards ceremony presented by the folks at Jambands.com and Relix Magazine, with Jambands.com Editor-in-Chief Dean Budnick. The Home Grown Music Network, which recently celebrated its tenth anniversary with a weekend of performances in Raleigh, NC, spotlighted a Peter Prince solo acoustic set among their musical lineup. Both Peter Prince and Moon Boot Lover have also appeared to benefit others in need; most recently at a Tsunami relief concert held in upstate New York last year.

After spending two years fronting Peter Prince & The Trama Unit, a Muscle Shoals-influenced project that featured members of the Benevento/Russo Duo, Deep Banana Blackout, Jiggle the Handle, Schleigho and Ron Levy’s Wild Kingdom, Peter Prince resumes the mission he first launched back in 1993, and at the same time is preparing the release his self-titled debut solo album. Peter is also currently at work finalizing a Peter Prince/Johnny Trama collaborative effort, while formulating plans for the release of not only a fifth edition of the Moon Boot Lover saga, but the release of the much-anticipated third edition of the Moon Boot Lover saga, an album entitled Catskill Martian Dogs, which features the trio of Peter Prince with Soulive’s Alan and Neal Evans.

Above all else, Peter Prince embodies the theatre and soul of Rock 'n' Roll at its very finest. His performances bristle with raw emotion, romance, deep-hearted soul, and a trademark sense of humor that puts him in a class all by himself. Peter's distinctive songwriting voice, mixed with his onstage antics and unbridled energy, makes Moon Boot Lover an experience that can only be described as "out of this world!" ...go see it and become a believer yourself.
