Then on Saturday, moe. will welcome Strangefolk/Assembly of Dust’s Reid Genauer, Percy Hill’s Nate Wilson, and Schleigho’s Suke Cerulo.

Garvey remains hospitalized and remains in stable condition, according to the band. A GoFundMe has been set up to assist Garvey and his family during this time.
The announcement of Garvey’s stroke received an outpouring of heartfelt comments from fellow artists. The String Cheese Incident, Umphrey’s McGee, and Pigeons Playing Ping Pong were among the groups sending love and positivity, including the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester.
An update was shared on November 10 from moe. bassist Rob Derhak:
On Tuesday, November 15, moe. shared an update on their December shows, noting that all shows, including New Years Eve in Las Vegas, will be cancelled. The exceptions are the moe shows at The Capitol Theatre on December 10 and 11, which will feature special guests joining that evening. Read more from moe. below:
After much thought and discussion, we’ve decided to cancel our December appearances while Chuck starts his road to recovery. To that exception, we will still play the shows at The Capitol Theater on Dec. 10th and 11th. This venue means a lot to us all and feels like the right place for us to play at this time. We plan to have some special guests join us throughout the night and hope you can join us. More details to come regarding special merch, fundraising & more to benefit Chuck & his family. Thank you for your continued positive vibes, thoughts and prayers. They help Chuck get stronger each day.
