After solidifying the line-up, Moondog Matinee hit the ground - running, writing, recording and touring as much as possible. In 2011, they released their debut album, Vacancy at the Wonder Lodge and embarked on their first west coast tour. Touring extensively from 2012 to 2014, the band returned to Reno to record their follow-up album Carry Me, Rosie. Channeling the vibes of 60s and 70s rock ‘n’ roll like Creedence Clearwater Revival and Neil Young as well as contemporary blues, folk and rock artists such as Jack White, The Black Keys and Dr. Dog.
