The "6th Member of moe." Contest Winners Interviews

On December 21, 2012, a cosmic confluence of sorts aligned within the moe. universe. Far from the end of the world, 3 contestants for the "6th member of moe." contest were announced. After thoughtful review and deliberation, the band selected guitarists Taylor Frederick and Matt Mahoney, and pianist Joe Ballanti, to perform with them during moe.'s New Year's Eve run in Worcester, Massachusetts, and Portland, Maine. We asked all three to reflect on what it was like "to be a member of moe." for one night-to share their thoughts with everyone about the whole experience-in a brief Q and A.

1) First up, guitarist TAYLOR FREDERICK, the "6th member of moe." contest winner for the 12/28/2012

2) Next, contest winner, pianist JOE BALLANTI played with moe. on 12/29/2012

3) On the third night, guitarist MATT MAHONEY, contest winner for 12/30/2012
