"HUNGRY!" Eric “Two Scoops” Moore.
Piano man, singer, songwriter and entertainer extraordinaire, Eric "Two Scoops"
Moore and his combo of stellar musicians (known as Two Scoops Combo) has
once again delivered a full plate of fun and exciting original music on their
latest release, simply titled "Hungry". In 1996 there was "Big Buffet", in 1998
there was "Clean Plate" and now this man is "Hungry!"( there may be a food
issue going on here) With a history of hilarious lyrics and some incredibly
fun and exciting grooves, this latest master piece by "Scoops" ( as his band
mates call him) will have you dancing and laughing at the same time. Scoops
has toured on 3 different continents including 6 years with Luther "Guitar
Jr." Johnson. His vast performance experience and sense of humor are
certainly evident on this recording. International experience aside, Scoops
sings about everyday woes, concerns, desires and of course food and drink.
He'll sing about being "No good for nothing", wanting "Time to come home" off
of the road, his experience in "Auto service hell", relationships, debt and
many other everyday life experiences. What makes this recording unique is the
way Eric "Two Scoops" Moore delivers the lyrics with his strong vocal
stylings and the way this truly great band makes the music come alive.
Showcased are the superior piano skills of Scoops, the awesome Saxophone
stylings and Harmonica playing of Jim King and special guest (internationally
famous) Sax Gordon, very tasteful drumming by Cutts Peaslee and Jim
Plano, Great bass playing by Guy Quintino and Bill Freckleton and even a few
songs with renowned NW Guitarist Dave Conant. Throw in 3 great instrumentals
and what we have here is a world class CD that is a must have recording for
anyone with an appreciation for good fun music. If you haven't seen this
group perform live yet, you must go see their very entertaining show and
pick up this truly unique piece of work called "Hungry!". You can also get this
CD at their website, www.twoscoopscombo.com. Trust me on this one folks, you
want this CD in your collection!

BACKGROUND:
Eric “Two Scoops” Moore was born in 1958 and hails from Boston. He has been playing the piano since the age of 5. After discovering the Blues in 1972, the notes took on a whole new meaning. Eric was soon jamming every Sunday at the 1369 Jazz Club in Cambridge MA, under the tuteledge of 50's Vee Jay recording artist, “Earring” George Mayweather. Riding back to George's old haunts on the South Side of Chicago and hearing first-hand tales about Little Walter, J B Hutto, Howlin' Wolf & other greats, steeped this Boston boy in Blues history.

In 1991 he was hired by ex-Muddy Waters guitarist, Grammy and Handy Award winner, Luther “Guitar Jr.” Johnson. Luther had Two Scoops open the shows for him. For the next six years, Two Scoops thrilled giant crowds at premier Blues clubs, festivals and cruises in 36 states, 12 countries on three continents. While playing on the 1/95 ULTIMATE RHYTHM & BLUES CRUISE, one special fan from Seattle stole his heart. Amy was Treasurer of the Washington Blues Society. She convinced him that if he wanted good loving every night, it was time to hire his own band and be his own man.

The House of Blues in Cambridge MA hosted its first ever wedding/blues jam for the couple on 2/14/96. The occasion was featured as the Valentine's Day love story on the 11 PM news. It was also a celebration of Eric’s miraculous recovery from a nearly fatal bout with flesh-eating bacteria and a release party for his first CD, "Big Buffet". Over 14 years later, the disc still receives frequent airplay.

Since 1996, Two Scoops has been based in West Seattle, playing gigs as a solo pianist/vocalist, duo with sax, trio with drums, or quartet with upright bass. Venues include nightclubs, parks, festivals, radio & TV stations, zoos, Tuscan hill town piazzas, classic car & motorcycle rallies, corporate events, wedding receptions, birthday parties and art gallery openings. No matter where Two Scoops plays, BIG FUN is in store for all!

Eric has shared the stage with many notable blues stars, including JOHN LEE HOOKER, BUDDY GUY, KOKO TAYLOR, LONNIE BROOKS, RONNIE EARL, MONSTER MIKE WELCH, DAVID MAXWELL and SUGAR RAY NORCIA.
