moePods Release Multi-Cam Video of Cohoes Music Hall Performance
(Writer: Emily Vanderwiel)
Back in January, moe.rons and mutants joined forces as members of moe. and the Ominous Seapods joined forces for a special performance at the Cohoes Music Hall in Cohoes, NY. Seapods members Tom Pirozzi (bass/vocals), Max Verna (guitar), Brian Magini (keyboards), Ted Marotta (drums/percussion) and moe.’s Al Schnier (guitar/vocals) and Vinnie Amico (drums) took the stage at Cohoes Music Hall and delivered a set list comprised of fan favorites from both bands. The sets were a satisfying back and forth between moe. and Seapods’ songs.
Ominous Seapods and moe. got their start in the same Upstate NY jam-band scene of the early ’90s, performing at the same venues and often collaborating. Seapods’ shows also double as a reunion. Since the band’s break up in 2001 they have reunited for a few shows, but since Seapods vocalist and guitarist Dana Monteith has moved to Australia he was unable to make it to NY for moePods. The energies of the crowd, the band and the staff were something truly special. Seeing old friends from far and near, jamming out to tunes from “the good old days” is what keeps old school Ominous Seapod and moe. fans coming back any chance they get.
