About This Event

Moe's Alley presents the high-flying, beat-dropping, big band rocket ship known as High Step Society with special guests Master Beat!

Friday, June 28th
Doors: 8pm / Show: 9pm
$17 in advance / $22 day of the show


High Step Society is a dance party from another dimension; a high-flying, beat-dropping, big band rocket ship with an ear to the past, and both feet on the gas. This dynamic band is bringing jazz back to the party, where it belongs.

This 7-piece band’s mission is to bring people together, to create a celebratory space that transcends the troubles of this world. Capturing the spirit of the Jazz Age and launching it a century forward, this band breaks down the divisions between us and replaces them with the irresistible urge to dance together. 

High stepping is a state of mind, and a movement to be part of. Dress yourself up nice, act classy, and lift your best foot way up to the sky. Hop on the HSS Express and let’s ride this wave together towards better times.

MASTER BEAT blasts into the future/past on an other-worldly musical odyssey. Santa Cruz’s tingly new dance sensation blends psychedelic disco funk, driving beats, and powerful ADHD-infused female vocals that are sure to get you out of the house, then up and away on the cosmic dance floor. Curious? Come aboard the MASTER BEAT rocket ship! The band’s technicolor catalog of original music paints themes of extraterrestrials, sparkles, dancing your [insert body parts] off, and the duality of expressing individuality as part of a greater universal loving collective.

Guitar/Vox: Nate Smith (Superblume)
