Music is at the very core of the Bob Moog Foundation. Bob’s motivation for his innovative work was not solely synthesis or electronic music, but music as a transcendental language that brings people together in community. Bob stated many times how he much he enjoyed working with musicians and the open, creative spirit that they bring to their work.

The Bob Moog Foundation is involved in the music community in many ways whether through our events, Mooged-Out CD, artist endorsers or celebration and preservation of electronic music history.

Since our launch in August 2006, we’ve held several events including Enter the Mind of Moog, Yo’ Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band Gets Mooged-Out (launch party for our CD), Mooged-Out with Umphrey’s McGee, Mooged-Out with Toubab Krewe, Enter the Mind of Moog: Bob’s Birthday Celebration, Mooged-Out: A Bele Chere After Party.
