The band mixes a variety of genres and its shows feature extended musical improvisations that evoke a sense of adventure and exploration.

Every show features an original art poster, created by a well-known artist, and with its own unique Moonalice "legend". A copy of the poster by John Mavroudis will be given free to all attendees. All Moonalice concerts are broadcast live in HD and available in an online archive shortly after their set.

Never complacent with the status quo, they are an ever-evolving conglomerate poised to please music lovers from all walks of life.
