Moonalice is a psychedelic, roots-rock band of seasoned musicians mixing a variety of genres with extended musical improvisations. Everyone is a part of the experience. Moonalice was the brainchild of the great producer, T Bone Burnett in 2007 because he wanted to create a band with a San Francisco 60’s sound. Moonalice plays mostly original material mixed with some covers, and during their extended freeform jams the band moves as one, drawing from many musical genres honed from years of experience playing with various major acts. Every show features an original art poster, created by a well-known artist, and with its own unique Moonalice "legend". A copy of the poster will be given free to all attendees. All Moonalice concerts are broadcast live in HD on the Moonalice Couch Tour and available shortly after their set.

Videos and posters of all shows are available on and every show poster (each with a unique legend) can be viewed at

Moonalice social media reaches over 353,000 on Facebook and over 67,000 Twitter followers.

This is David Freiberg’s Quicksilver Messenger Service.

David Freiberg, an original member of Quicksilver Messenger Service (sometimes credited as simply Quicksilver) is an American psychedelic rock band formed in 1965 in San Francisco. They were most famous for their biggest hit, the single “Fresh Air” (from the album Just for Love), which reached #49 in 1970.

David Freiberg stands alone among his peers as an original folk scare-era singer of immense power and beauty. Today, his vocal duets with Linda Imperial are legendary and raise goosebumps from coast to coast and have a sound all their own. David’s handpicked band, his own Quicksilver Messenger Service, performs as if they are in a psychedelic dance hall of the late 1960s.

As a fan once wrote, “Though rightfully celebrated as being part of the Triumvirate of San Francisco Sound bands, along with the Grateful Dead and the Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service was also a uniquely Marin County Band. Perhaps that is what accounts for the scarier rural imagery, the spooky wild-west cowboy stuff, the tombstone hands and the graveyard minds that haunted the grooves of their incendiary 1969 live album “Happy Trails”; the Gold and Silver of their premier (their black album), or the pastoral tones of their third album, Shady Grove, featuring the English Mad Dog of piano, Nicky Hopkins”.
