Though they came to prominence in the jam-band boom of the late '90s, the upstate New York roots-rockers in moe. released their most concise, song-oriented effort to date with 2008's Sticks & Stones. The band joined Mountain Stage for a second time in March 2008, on location at the campus of Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, to play songs from the new record.

Al Schnier (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Chuck Garvey (electric guitar), Rob Derhak (bass), Vinnie Amico (drums) and Jim Loughlin (percussion) enlisted the help of a couple of friends for the tour: vocalist Nadine Lafond from Swampadelica and fiddler Allie Kral from the Chicago bluegrass group Cornmeal.

moe. has since released its sixth edition Warts & All, the band's series of live recordings, in addition to an official bootleg culled from its performance aboard a 2004 Caribbean cruise, Dr. Stan's Prescription, Vol. I.
