Get to know Name The Moon, who you have the chance to see on April, 19th during the 104.9 The X Presents: The Revolution 5 Years of Local Rock on The X show.
Last year, those who attended the 27th Annual Rockford Area Music Industry Awards were treated to some great live performances by local music’s elite.

- Derek Luttrell – Lead Vocals/Guitar
- Mossy Vaughn – Guitars/Vocals
- Gavin Epperson – Violin/Vocals
- Jim Weston – Keyboard
- Jerry Sofran – Electric Bass
- Scott Ford – Drums/Percussion
Normally, I would say that this Rockford band has made quite a name for themselves since forming in 2015. But, all of it’s members have been very well known in the local music community for many, many years. It shows in both their songwriting and in their performance on stage. The music itself defies definition.
It’s heavy, but weightless at the same time with floating guitars complemented by keys and strings. It seems subtle and savage simultaneously. Then, words weave through the maze of music with poetic perfection.
Their latest album, “Space Force” is out now. You can take a listen at their BandCamp page. ~Rev. TimE
