"Moogatu, a [Washington, DC] powerhouse jamband warmed up the night with their classic funk chops... The group kept the crowd pumped up and ready for the madness that was about to unfold." - Relix/, November 2013

"Previously unfamiliar with Moogatu, I was highly impressed by their set. This 4 piece brings forth another unique and heavy sound, forming much of its music around dual lead guitar parts, with a very tight and complimentary rhythm section." - Buckeye Music Magazine, October 2012

"We've seen some personal favorites of ours such as People's Blues of Richmond, Moogatu, Moon Hooch and Pigeons Playing Ping Pong dominating the festival scene and rarely taking a night off from playing a show. Moogatu has been teaming up with Jamwich favorites such as Galaxy Dynamite and Segway and continue to wow audiences with their creative and technical skills." - Appalachian Jamwich Magazine, December 2012

"I forgot Moogatu was from [some movie we totally don't remember]. I thought it just stood for 'BADASS!'" - Allen Aucoin (Disco Biscuits), March 2013
STIG is an all-instrumental progressive jazz funk band consisting of 5 best friends from a myriad of places both geographically and musically. “We share music with each other during the day, and weave those news ideas into our shows at night.” Their improvisational nature paired with tight communication and 2 years of playing and growing together creates an exploratory and engaging live show experience.

STIG tunes are all original and are always written as a group to fuse each member’s genre-crossing influences. Since forming in Boston while attending Berklee College of Music, STIG has been touring the country non-stop, playing high-energy shows, and catering their funk to the vibe and energy of the crowd.

The band recently relocated to Asheville, North Carolina after falling in love with the town while on tour. An Asheville home base means the chance to dive deep into writing music full time, putting it out there and playing it. “We’re stoked to be immersed in the Asheville music community!”

From opening for the likes of Aqueous, Nicki Bluhm and Dynamo to raging the late night stage at Some Kind Of Jam festival, STIG is constantly working to bring their funky instrumental sound to as many smiling faces as they can. Be on the lookout for new tour dates, music videos, and updates from the band!

"Adding their own flavor to the funk revival scene, STIG keeps it smooth and sexy, interesting without ever overstaying their welcome."
- The Deli Magazine
"Feel-good funk...played with the freewheeling abandon you would hope to hear from a bunch of very young, very talented musicians in the act of discovery."
- The Aspen Times
