James Moon and friends have regularly performed in Fountain Gallery and always bring a relaxed yet powerful sound to the room. They “play the kind of stuff you'd want to hear coming from the jukebox in a neon holler, coming from a radio in the break room at a corn syrup factory on third shift…” (Jacob Sunderlin)
