Honk, Wail and Moan is committed to the idea that guys and dolls need to go out, have a few drinks, dance with each other and snap fingers.  The cookin' rhythm section supports a hot horn section that backs up the always pleasing vocals that the band's audience has grown to know and love.  Since forming in the fall of 1991, Honk, Wail and Moan has entertained thousands of this earth's finest in many cities, over ten states (of the Union or of the Mind - you be the judge), and at least three countries and two continents with its mix of hot swingin' classics and jumpin' originals.  Honk, Wail and Moan has truly earned its name.  (How, we can't tell you.)

"…The most important thing about this is that it swings. I don't get to hear a lot lately that swings. I hear lots of jazz that skronks and jags from place to place… but very little tha actually swings in a head-nodding, foot-tapping, enveloping fashion."  The Aquarian Weekly

"Their musicianship is deaaad serious but there is a refreshing sense of wackiness in their work… This band has a bundle of energy."  Option

"Honk, Wail and Moan feature the talents of six individuals all swinging out… The wonderful titles [of the originals] only hint at the creativity of the music. There is a definite pleasure in playing that comes from the musicians themselves, which manifests itself in continual energy."  Home Theater technology

"…Roundly entertaining… the creators of the bravest music this town has heard in years."  The Columbus Dispatch

"I personally think your act is great."  Marque A. Rome, coordinator, Southern Thailand Jazz and Blues Festival
