Formed in late 2009, Afternoon Moon consists of twin brothers, Josh (guitar/vocals) and Jordan Daniels (keys/vocals), Justin Crabb (percussion), and Louie Giacobbe (bass).
The Daniels Brothers started playing Illinois’ music scene in 2004. It wasn’t until the winter of 2009 that they sought to start a project of their own and formed Afternoon Moon with Justin. Later, Louie joined to complete the family.
Afternoon Moon is primarily based in Ottawa, IL. The band has an interesting sound that has been described as both psychedelic and roots rock ‘n’ roll that is honest. The lyrics are memorable- speaking of adventure, passion, searching for experience and understanding.
Live performances have become a must see, with a vintage infusion of sonic improvisation and an honest homegrown feel. They’ve built a reputation of a funky and energetic performance with dedicated musicians.
With one album completed (released December 2011) and another on the way, there’s no sign of stopping. They’ve already toured venues and festivals through out the Midwest and made it to states as far as Colorado, New York, West Virginia, and Ohio. They seek to see the country through the power of their music. The Daniels Twins duel it out with an incredible back beat provided by Justin and Louie. This is an experience you won’t soon forget.
