Enthusiastic group of young musicians specializing in rock, blues, jazz and funk. Based out of Rochester, Massachusetts, this ensemble of five has performed in venues such as The Middle East Cafe in Cambridge, MA and Simon's 677 in Providence, RI. The group is willing to travel and will play gigs offering upwards of $250. Skinny Moth and the Prospect has amassed a loyal following of young fans in its short career and promises to impress any audience. Though the group specializes in the aforementioned genres, their skill and versatility enables them to play music of any style, making them a great opening act for any occasion. Members Eli, Shane, Rob, Cam and Holly are excited to play for you!
I went to this venue for the first time, and being unfamiliar with the music scene in the area, I didn't know what to expect. However from the moment the band starting tuning up and getting ready I knew they'd be great. To my surprise they were not great, they were amazing! Skinny Moth and the Prospect's B.B. king esc tone, and wonderful musicianship among all the members in the band really created a memorable experience for me as a musician and as an avid music listener.
