New in Town Tour 2012
A fresh, urban rough style mix of Soul, Electro, Beat, Nu-Jazz and Swing – this is the sound of Moonlight Breakfast. They met in Bucharest: Christie, the singer with a striking, extraordinary voice, who had to be argued into singing in the first place, and Bazooka, drummer and multi-instrumentalist, who studied the clarinet at the Bucharest Conservatory. In the meantime they got married and their kid loves to stroll curiously on stage from time to time. Joined by Adita, keyboarder and guitar player, actor and blessed equestrian and Printzu, who gave up his studies of theology to play the bass.
Moonlight Breakfast had exactly five rehearsals before their first concert. And we are not speaking of an underground club location. They were the opening act for Jamiroquai, playing in front of a crowd of 35.000 people. Thanks to their intoxicating performance they passed the test with flying colours and since then, they are performing their worldwide concerts with a playful easiness. Almost 2 million people are following them on YouTube without them having an official release.
Just the right time for Moonlight Breakfast to release their album „Shout“ which puts all their influences in a nutshell. Produced, recorded, edited, mixed and mastered by Bazooka, the 13 songs of this debut album show a special style mix. „Hello“ opens with a pushing voodoo beat and Christie’s question „Hello! Do you wanna know my name?“ Whereas „Still“ is a weird disco song with a fairylike soul voice. It’s here that Billie Holiday meets Bananarama and Les Rita Mitsouko for a few drinks and some cool moves. In „Play“ Moonlight Breakfast unite Pop, Disco, Swing and Gypsy Jazz and top it off with a catchy clarinet solo.
Physical and digital release of their first album, SHOUT, scheduled for the 19th of September 2014. Label: RAR marketed by Motor Entertainment
