Hi Folks,
June 29th is a very special evening for the Peaceniks at the Rockwood Music Hall. Patti and Moogy (that's Me!) will both be doing solo sets to be followed by a set with the whole Peaceniks band. Our last gigs at Banjo Jim's and the P and G bar went great, and rehearsals for next week's show have been excellent.
Though the Peaceniks/Moogy/Patti tickets are $10 - we have a limited number of free tickets. We have made arrangements with the club for a limited number of fans to be put on the guest list for the show (which normally costs $10.00). All you have to do is send your name to, and if I send you a return email, you and a friend are guaranteed to get in for free (But you still have to buy a drink).
Act now, because we only have a few spaces left. Since space is limited, only email us if you are sure you can come.
As I continue to struggle with my intense health challenge, fighting the big C, I find doing music with my best friends (as the Peaceniks are!) it extremely healing. And as the music heals me, I promise the music will heal you as well. So please come down to the show.
All Power to the Peaceful,
The Peaceniks - Patti, Barry, Mark, Moogy & Jim

Peacenik Moogy Klingman played for years with Rundgren and Utopia - recording with Dylan, Eric Clapton, & an Allman Brother's offshoot band. Moogy's time playing with Hendrix is documented with his Peaceniks's song "Jimi in the Sky" and his song, Bette Midler's theme song, "You Gotta Have Friends"is a classic.
Patti Rothberg's many solo albums include the gold (gold in Europe, almost gold in USA) album "between the 1 and the 9" and one of her several hit singles, "Inside" - she'll be playing it tonite!
Barry Gruber, the Peaceniks co-leader will be rocking with his songs as well, having done peace concerts over the years with the likes of Pete Seeger and Peter Yarrow from Peter, Paul and Mary!

About the Peaceniks
      The Peaceniks are a rocking jamming band dedicated to peace, love, great rockin' songs and a hippie jam vibe along the lines of the Dead, Phish, the Allman Brothers and Gov't Mule (whom Peacenik Moogy use to play with). Their songs are somewhere between the lyrical content of early Bob Dylan, and the harmony sounds of the Beatles.
      In the year since they have started playing and recording they have done many shows, concerts and recently put out their first album, "Here Comes the Peaceniks" on Band Together Records.
     This past September, The Peaceniks played at New York's premiere rock club, BB King's. The concert on Sept. 9th, 2009 brought out hundreds of fans. The Peaceniks opened the show and then backed up American Idol's Sanjaya for a long set of his songs. In all, the Peaceniks performed over thirty songs that night, either as Peaceniks or as Sanjaya's band. Their skills as musicians were tested that night and they got an A plus for their performances.
      The Peaceniks began writing and recording their songs for their first CD on Band Together Records in the winter of 2008. Their album "Here Come the Peaceniks" was released in the summer of 2009.
       Over the summer of 2009 the Peaceniks held court weekly at the hot Lower East Side music club owned by Gavin Degraw, "The National Underground". Here, they played songs from their new album and had a "Peaceniks Jam" that went on into the night.
       During the summer of 2009 the Peaceniks also performed at several important peace concerts. Opening for Pete Seeger at the New York Friends of Clearwater at Manhattan's Pier 23 in July of 2009. The Peaceniks also opened for Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul & Mary) at Universal Peace Day concert in August of 2009.  The Peaceniks started their career last summer, 2008 with an appearance at Riverside Church for Universal Peace day, August 5th, 2008. 
      The Peaceniks have also done several radio shows and concerts over the last year. With two appearances on WOR radio's Joey Renolds show performing their songs the summer of 2009. Joey was so impressed that he invited them back. On WBAI 99.5 FM, they recently did a two hour late nite concert on legendary free form radio host,  Bob Fass's radio show and also recently appeared on WBAI's Cat Radio Cafe.

Listen to Axel Rose and Guns 'n' Roses sing Moogy Klingman's song Dust in the Wind Hey Gang!! Check this new web page! It was done by a fan/friend named Eddy and it the most complete look (with album and singles covers to boot) ever done on my musical history. Thanks mucho to Eddy.


Moogy Music remembers John Siomos (1948 - 2004)
who was a good friend and one of America's greatest rock drummers.

      Bob Dylan and Bette Midler in Moogy's recording studio in 1975 - working on Buckets of Rain, produced by Moogy Klingman and released on the Moogy produced Bette Midler album, "Songs for the New Depression" back in 1976. Unfortunately many of the songs that Moogy produced were left off the album. (about 10 at last count!!). There is now an international movement to get these trax released!

The same years that Todd was with the Nazz, I was with a group called the Glitterhouse. Now available at my website is the CD "The Glitterhouse - the almost complete recordings, 1966 to 1975"  - This almost forgotten group came mostly from my hometown, Great Neck. The drummer from Great Neck was good friend Joel O'Brien. He later went on to play with James Taylor in the Flying Machine and on Jame's first solo album for Apple records. Joel also played with Carol King on many of her early albums including "Tapestry", the biggest selling album of the early seventies.
     The leader of the Glitterhouse was Mike Gayle, also from Great Neck. He wrote, sang and played lead guitar on most songs. His greatness as a songwriter and musical force cannot be emphasized enuff. ...

Old Times, Good Times,

It was a good ole time of utopian dreams and Capitol schemes. It was a time when I knew then, that you gotta have friends. Though a quarter century away, the music still sounds vital today. Moogy & the Rhythm Kings would meet a wizard named Todd and the musical sparks would fly! Kings would soon turn Utopian. So here is a musical blue print of these flying sparks, presented for your listening pleasure!

The First Recordings

     This CD includes all Moogy songs from his early days including rare and previously unreleased material with many of your favorite musicians including Todd Rundgren, original Utopia members Ralph Schuckett and John Seigler and other rock legends such as Rick Derringer and Buzzy Linhart
