Check out Two Scoops' radio interview!

KPLU's interview with Eric aired 1/3/2011 - it's up on the web now:

Here's what some listeners wrote back to say:

Very nice! You don't hear music like that anymore! Real music! Happy New Year!
Happy New Year Amy and Eric!...I just happened to turn on the radio yesterday, just in time to catch the interview.... We have Eric's CD's and have seen you two at The New Orleans, The Seattle center, and Third Place Books, and spoke briefly once. Always such a treat. Real music, so warm, accessible, comical, and uplifting, almost makes ya wonder why they call it the Blues! Energizes, like the guy in the video. Cheers!

  Eric "Two Scoops" Moore and his Two Scoops Combo have been plying their trade - a mixture of boogie-woogie piano magic, electric blues, and old-time rock and roll - for nearly seven years. And if you think the bar-band circuit is tough - 36 states, 12 countries, and three continents so far - this American badass has survived . . . wait for it . . . flesh-eating bacteria. Let's see Kid Rock do that. Moore (who plays piano and sings) and his band - bassist Guy Quintino, tenor sax player Jim King, and drummer Cutts Peasely - join New Orleans with Chicago (Moore has played with many of the Hog Butcher's famous sidemen, including those of Muddy Waters) and Memphis. Nothing particularly new then, but Moore's pounding keyboard style and Professor Longhair-esque growlers are sure to stomp out a party beat.

According to Mrs. Scoops, "Whenever I tell Eric to mail out a CD, or do anything for that matter, he makes a funny face. Then he brings it to me, to keep me company while he runs to the post office!"

Recent Press Clipping

"There we were, a gaggle of girls,...watching Eric "Two Scoops" Moore cooking up a storm on stage. Stomping his feet, slapping his keyboard and trading vocal licks with his band, Two Scoops offered up his hungry man's hit, "Big Buffet" ("They got meat and potatoes, they got beans and rice, they got good country gravy make you go back twice ... "). Could it get any better?"

-- Nancy Leson, Seattle Times restaurant critic

The Seattle blues scene has been getting an extra burst of boogie from Eric "Two Scoops" Moore.

This 44-year-old pianist, singer and songwriter moved here in 1996, after 5-1/2 years on the road with Luther "Guitar Jr." Johnson. Moore's latest album, "Music Café," features hilariously crafted, cartoonish, Louis Jordan-type songs, such as "Big Ugly Fella" and "Let's Eat!" as well as rollicking, honky-tonk piano that might give Jerry Lee Lewis a fright.

Moore, whose tunes are featured as transition music on the National Public Radio show "Car Talk," won the Washington Blues Society's Best Keyboard award for 2003.

Catch Two Scoops. He's the real item.
-- Paul de Barros, Seattle Times

"Jerry Lee Lewis meets Randy Newman. This guy can not only play, his original lyrics are funnier than a monkey with a gag writer."
-- Critic's Pick, Seattle Times

Two Scoops Combo performs at public and corporate events in the Puget Sound area and around the world. To see upcoming events or to book an event, go here!
