Beloved jam band moe. took to the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY last night, playing their first-ever Holiday Show at the renowned venue. Though this was their first holiday concert, the band’s 2002 album Seasons Greetings From moe. is a prime example of the band’s penchant for spreading that December cheer. Naturally, a number of songs from that album, as well as some new tunes, big jams and more were all on display.

The show started aptly with “New York City,” an ode to the fans who made the trip out to Port Chester from the city. They brought out a holiday favorite next, “Linus & Lucy”, before digging into a “Head > ZOZ > Head” sandwich. Another Seasons Greetings track “Oh Hanukkah” came next, before the band debuted a new Al Schnier song called “Angel.” They closed out the first set with a rocking “Recreational Chemistry,” bringing some expert improvisation to the table.

Watch the official video for “New York City”, streaming below.

The second set was filled with more goodies, opening with “Puebla” before playing a new Jim Loughlin tune called “Don’t Wanna Be.” The band then included another Seasons track, “Carol Of The Bells,” keeping the energy high with a great performance. There was also another new song debut, a Rob Derhak tune tentatitvely titled “Prestige Worldwide.” They also finished off the second set with a wild “Four > Buster”, bringing some sheer excitement to the venue.

With time left for an encore, moe. returned and debuted a new holiday tune in “Father Christmas” by The Kinks. They closed out the show with a bust out, playing “We’re A Couple Of Misfits” from the Seasons Greetings album for the first time in a few years. What a performance!

Check out a full audio recording below, as taped by Brian V.
