Proxy Moon (Sacramento, CA)
Proxy Moon (Sacramento, CA)
“Proxy Moon, a four-piece local outfit, has a jazz-rooted sound
that is sweet and smoky, with the perfect amount of
rustic wear. It’s as if they refused to vacate a
Chicago martini lounge when the wrecking ball tore
through it,
staying with the rubble all the way to the
scrapyard and not skipping a beat under a desolate moonlit sky."
-
Aaron Davis, Sacramento Bee

Proxy Moon's music is rooted in blues, folk, jazz, country - fundamentally American music with an emphasis on original songs featuring strong, interesting lyrics and melodies delivered with spirited musicianship. They’ve been described by turns as esoteric, poetic, and irreverent, with a bit of a burlesque thrown for good measure, and compared to such artists as Tom Waits, Joe Henry, Jolie Holland, and Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks.
Comprised of a core group of five multi-instrumentalist musicians with diverse backgrounds, the band is at home in virtually any genre, and delivers it with a bit of an edge, utilizing both traditional and non-traditional instruments, including one made up of a ball-peen hammer and a heavy iron coupler, popularly known as “the junk”.

Members include Patrick Grizzell, songwriting, guitar and vocals; Steve Bird, upright bass; Ann Wherry, vocals and various instruments; Ingrid Peters, violin and saw; and Chris hall, sax and flute. The newest album is 2016's highly regarded self titled CD, but we hear they are planning to record another batch of songs soon.
