Transcontinental Vibrations - DR Hernandez + The Moonhops


A brand new outfit from some all-star specialists!

After many years on the road with the likes of Melbourne Ska Orchestra, Texicali Rose, The Ska Vendors, The Pachuco Playboys, The Spaghetti Western Orchestra, The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra, Skazz and Batacuda, five Melbourne musicians bring together their disparate musical tastes and a shared passion for Caribbean-influenced rhythms, to lay down some relaxed and rootsy dance grooves.

Dr Hern ndez prescribes an exotic tonic of electro cumbia, sweet reggae, old school ska and a shot of soulful boogaloo.


THE MOONHOPS are Melbourne's premier 60s and early 70s style Rocksteady and Reggae exponents. While paying respect to the greats of vintage Jamaican music, they also add their own twist to give you a soulful performance which sways and moves audiences to the catchy off-beat rhythms of old-school Jamaican music.
