Fans and Friends,
It is with mixed emotions that we announce our dear friend and guitarist, Starr Moss, will be leaving the band in August to attend grad school in Madison. While we couldn’t be happier for his growth and career choice, we will miss him as both an outstanding guitarist and a great friend.
We’ve spent almost four years with Starr on the road and he’s helped shape the band with his powerful musicality and his gentle and kind presence. In that time we’ve recorded three albums, been all over the world, played hundreds of shows and met thousands of people. These are the kinds of memories and experiences you never forget and Starr will ALWAYS be welcome on our stage.
There will be several chances to catch Starr with us before his departure at the end of August, including his last shows on August 16th at the Irish American Heritage Festival in Milwaukee and the Glenwood Avenue Arts Fest in Chicago. These shows are not to be missed as we will both be bidding Starr farewell, and welcoming our new guitarist on stage to begin the next era. Please come out and celebrate a great man, musician and friend with us.
A message from Starr
Dear Friends and Fans-
A few weeks from now will be my last show with the Henhouse Prowlers. I will be moving on to pursue a graduate degree at UW-Madison. This was not an easy decision to make, considering what an unbelievable ride this has been! Joining this band three and a half years ago, I would never have dreamed of going to the places we’ve gotten to visit. Words can’t describe how grateful I am for these experiences.
I can’t think of a better group of people to have shared these experiences with. It’s been a blast traveling and making music with these guys and these friendships go beyond music. I wish them the absolute best and I’m excited to see where their travels will take them next.
To all the amazing people I’ve gotten to meet along the way- thanks for your support and friendship, and I hope to see you all again soon!
