“Life Is A Beach” for the Joe Moorhead Band. Born in the most unlikely of places, the gritty urban jungle of Cleveland, Ohio, the band took their laid back attitude and tropical party mentality on the road playing college campuses, music festivals and venues throughout the Americas. Gathering up fans and building momentum along the way like a whipping island breeze about to transform into a tropical storm. An ever growing fan base of loyal fans already know the magic in the music of the Joe Moorhead Band. And so should you.

Like Jack Johnson, Sublime and the Dave Mathews Band before them, the Joe Moorhead Band creates a laid back groove with insightful lyrics about love and life from a wholly original sound that provides an escape from today's tough times. Not taking themselves too seriously, the band's shows are fun and original celebrations designed around escaping from the pains and horrors of the real world.

Ready for a musical trip? An around the world escape that is sure to free your mind and move your body? Then you're ready for Joe Moorhead.
