On May 2nd, MoeTar is releasing a 4 song EP titled “Final Four” which is the last music we’ll release as a band. MoeTar is officially ending as a band.

First and foremost, we want to thank you, our fans and supporters. We have felt so honored to have such an incredibly dedicated group of fans who we hope to stay in close contact with.

Eventhough MoeTar won’t be working together as a band anymore, ea...

Our 5-day road trip up to Portland/Seattle last week gave us just under 30 hours in the car together.  Since we have nothing to say to each other anymore we battle the silence with a barrage of eclectic music.  While the music part is true, we do still engage in passionate conversations that span from the sublime to the absurd.  Inevitably certain members of the band take the topics too far…they w...

MoeTar just had an incredible mini-tour up North in Portland and Seattle. I'm SO grateful to get to sing with such talented people. Thank you Matthew Charles Heulitt​, Matt Lebofsky​, Jonathan Herrera​, Tarik Ragab​ and Wesley Anderson​ who heroically filled in the huge shoes of David Flores​ this weekend who was busy playing at San Jose Jazz Fest and SFJazz. Thanks too to Jacob Nunes​ and Jordan...

I am happy to announce that MoeTar has a brand spankin’ new lyric booklet for sale. It has all of the Entropy of the Century album lyrics, a photo collage of the band at the Stinson Beach recording studio and art strewn throughout the pages from Tarik. You can buy a copy online for $12 (includes shipping) or at a live show for $10.

 

I have an affinity for physical media and have been wanting to pro...

Writing music is an addiction for me. Not only does it provide an outlet for venting the love and rage I feel about the world, but it also gives me shelter from it. I am an imagination refugee, an inspiration junkie. 

 

In spite of this propensity to always create, the inspiration part can be a fickle beasts. I never know when that “ah ha” moment might happen and sometimes it comes at the worst...

You may have noticed that I’m wearing face art at most MoeTar shows. I’m usually sporting some variation of war paint on my cheeks or drawn designs around my eyes. It’s not Lady Gaga extreme but it’s part of my MoeTar stage look that’s different from my heading-to-the-grocery-store look.

 

There is more to the color on my face than just show aesthetics. The paint, which I’m usually applying with my...

MoeTar has shows booked on the West Coast in California, Oregon and Washington. More shows are booked in New Jersey, Maryland and 5 more will be announced soon. We hope to see you in the crowd. Come say hi to us after a show.

 

 

I must say, it’s pretty exciting to get a major feature in a mag that I subscribed to as a teenager (which was a very long time ago).  It’s the first real press I’ve ever gotten in the US and I’m most happy about the fact that it was MoeTar that got me there.  Out of all the bands I’ve been in, tours, and renowned musicians I’ve shared the stage with, MoeTar is my fav…and I’m not usually one for f...

Matt (Lebofsky) here. While the magic behind MoeTar is heavily steeped in Tarik's incredible artistic and musical vision, the band is generous enough to also occasionally let me get my composer-y two cents in. On our latest album offering I whipped up a simple, cleansing arrangement of my tune "Benefits." Here's the story behind that song.

 

On a particular milestone birthday a few years ago I decid...

Hey, Tarik here. 

 

Since its release, a lot of people have asked me about the concept behind MoeTar’s 2nd album, Entropy of the Century, so I figured a blog post was in order.

 

When I first began writing these songs I wanted them to form a narrative about the tumultuous political, economic, social and environmental landscape we are in, countered by the exciting advances in science and technology exp...
