About The Omega Moos
If you dont already know, Omega Moos are Jamie from tND and Ryan and Brendan from Umphrey’s McGee playing classic rock, each others bands tunes, and all around jam throwdowns that will make your head spin.
Collaborations are a tricky thing. Especially when the participating players are fans of one another’s music. The Omega Moos are not an exception to this rule. Both The New Deal and Umphrey’s McGee have followed each other’s careers with much interest, but not until this fall did anyone suspect such a mash-up of genres, corralled into the highly volatile ring of improvised music. But it happened. And what was created was a perfect marriage of the fundamental sensibilities present in each band: Proficient melodic wankery and rump-shaking bombastic simplicity. Put together, it makes an amazing layering of approaches and dynamics. Kind of like a prog-rock remix, or possibly what Genesis would sound like if produced by DJ Tiesto. It takes the sounds of Jamie Shields and elevates its rock-ness, while adding a ruckus, breakbeat feel to the signature sounds of Brendan Bayliss and Ryan Stasik. Needless to say, all frequencies are covered, and there ain’t no one in the room standing still.
