Co-founding moe. guitarist Chuck Garvey told fans he’s “getting better every day” in a recent health update on social media. The 51-year-old guitarist suffered a stroke back in November that has kept him off the road and forced moe. to cancel a number of shows.
In an Instagram post published on Sunday, Garvey thanked all of those who sent him cards over the past month and change. He didn’t go into great detail on his condition, just saying “I am getting better every day.” Chuck also attached a photo of the many cards he received, including an enamel pin of himself dressed as Satan playing the saxophone.
moe. first announced Chuck’s stroke back on November 9th, noting that the guitarist was hospitalized in “stable condition.” The band shortly thereafter canceled its remaining 2021 shows, save for a two-night run at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. Those shows occurred on December 10th and 11th respectively, with each night seeing a slew of special guests help fill in for the absent guitarist, including Warren Haynes, Aron Magner, Reid Genauer, Nate Wilson, and more. A highlight of the weekend came on Saturday when Chuck made a surprise appearance in a pre-recorded clip of him strumming a guitar.
Fans can contribute to a GoFundMe to help pay for Chuck’s medical expenses and rehabilitation costs. moe. has since announced a number of festival dates for 2022, including the band’s Summer Camp Music Festival set to return to Memorial Day weekend.
