"Moontown is a fresh new band with songs and stories set to soulful sounds of rhythm and melody. From the mind of Ari Selinger, comes Moontown, a unique place full fascinating folks with strange and mysterious fables from the eyes its wide array of inhabitants. Tall tales of the stars, ocean odysseys and heartbreak set to song are originals that will feature Seth Nicholson (bass and vocals), Nate Osbourne (drums and vocals) and Ari (vocals and guitar). Along with Ari's upcoming film 'The Ghost of Hank Williams', shot at the American Hotel, Moontown is proud to bring its eclectic bag of stories of yesterday, today and tomorrow to the Montauk Music Fest. Their debut album Music from Moontown will be available during the shows."
