Moonlight Drive - The Ultimate Doors Experience
Moonlight Drive - The Ultimate Doors Experience
The Doors’ sound is timeless. Their music lives on, as blues and classic rock lovers everywhere continue to elevate the deserving band to legendary status. In keeping with tradition, however, legends, in order to become legendary, must first disappear. When Moonlight Drive takes the stage—the legend is reborn.

Moonlight Drive has established themselves as one of the top performing tribute bands currently touring the Midwest. Dustin Lentz hauntingly resurrects Ray Manzarek’s keyboarding style, recently acquiring a 1971 Fender Rhodes Piano Bass, and a 1968 Gibson G-101 Kalamazoo Organ. Tim Utter, who adds an important dynamic to a number of local acts, is vital as Robby Krieger. His talent is noticeably showcased with Moonlight Drive. David Damm, on percussion, uses a matching mod orange percussion set as John Densmore did. His performance style displays mastery, and is pure joy to witness. When Robert Shannon commands the microphone, it is as if he has evoked the spirit of Jim Morrison, delivering to audiences the same raw energy, and emotionally seductive performance they would expect from one of rock’s most inspired, unrestrained, and tragic icons. With these four talents, an audiences’ eye becomes a wandering spotlight.

Emotion is the common thread. It drives the creation of great music, whether that of The Doors, or that of Moonlight Drive, and connects the audience to the entertainer. It is the heartbeat manifested by throbbing speakers, and the life communicated by an affected audience. Whatever your age or expectation, and whatever your knowledge of The Doors and their music, an audience listening or grooving to Moonlight Drive is always an audience affected.
