Dexter and the Moonrocks at the recordBar

Following the release of “Couch” in August 2021 Abilene, Texas based band would
gradually make their mark on the music scene by combining sounds from genres such as rock, grunge, and country into what they and their fans would later call “Western Space Grunge”. After creating a storm on the internet, the group would release their first self- titled EP which contained songs that would be loved by their listeners such as “Where I Steer”. The group consisting of frontman, James Tuffs, lead guitarist, Ryan Anderson, bassist, Ty Anderson, and drummer, Fox would then take their energetic sound and hit the road amassing an ever-growing fan base.

After having their opener, Mitchell Ferguson, set the tone for the kind of night the
audience would expect to have, the group would open with “Where I Steer” which the Kansas City crowd would sign back the chorus to the band letting them know that not only are they here for the ride, but they would make their presence known at the sold out recordBar. As frontman James Tuff would introduce certain members of the group and having the crowd welcome their presence, they would introduce songs like “Sharp” and “Callahan”.

While the crowd was more than eager to hear their favorite original songs from the
band, they would also be treated to a selection of covers such as “Creep” by Radiohead and Surf Curse’s “Freaks” that showed the band’s influences and role models.

Occasionally, the Kansas City crowd would be treated to hearing a couple of unreleased songs which caused a lot of excitement as to the direction that the group is headed to.

To close off their initial set, the group took us back to where it all started, an
emotional performance of “Couch”. Following the performance, the crowd would
demand an encore which the band was more than happy to oblige by finishing the night with “Birds and the Bees” and their viral hit “She Likes Girls”
My recommendation is that this is one group you don’t want to miss live. Not
only can you see them give everything they have for their audience, but their energy will stay with you long after the house lights come back on.
