Moore first met Morello in November 2006 when the guitarist came to New Orleans for a Future of Music Coalition concert at Tipitina’s. Two nights before the benefit, Moore performed at a party at the Mother-in-Law Lounge that Morello attended.

At Tipitina’s, they briefly shared the stage; Moore also performed with trombone collective Bonerama.
