GalacticCollective2

On Thursday, May 8, virtuoso synthesist Erik Norlander and his band The Galactic Collective performed a benefit tribute concert for the Bob Moog Foundation with three very special guests: fully restored vintage instruments from the Bob Moog Foundation Archives including a 1967 Moog modular synthesizer, a 1973 Minimoog Model D, and an extremely rare Moog Apollo.

Stay tuned for details about availability of official video from the tribute concert.

Bob Moog’s 80th birthday would have been May 23. As the date approaches, musical acts converged in an evening that celebrated Bob’s enduring legacy with a set from Erik and the Galactic Collective, and father-son acoustic music from openers Steven Heller and son Drew Heller.

Steven Heller, a Grammy-winning musician and composer, was a personal friend of Bob’s. Heller’s son Drew is a guitarist with Toubab Krewe, an African fusion band on the Nat Geo label for whom Bob had a particular musical appreciation and fondness.
