Moe. will perform at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 16 and 17, at State Theatre, 609 Congress St. in Portland.

Celebrating the news of a cancer-free diagnosis by band member Rob Derhak, moe. has added two weekends’ worth of shows in Portland.

The band canceled the majority of their 2017 Summer Tour after the band’s bassist/vocalist, Derhak, was diagnosed with Nasopharyngeal Cancer earlier this year.

Founded in 1990, moe. carved a niche for themselves with a distinct blend of Americana, melodic turns, clever songwriting, and jam band ethics. Members Vinnie Amico (drums), Rob Derhak (bass/vocals), Chuck Garvey (guitar/vocals), Jim Loughlin (percussion/vibes) and Al Schnier (guitar/vocals) have built a dedicated following through their extensive touring and musical output.

Tickets cost $39.50 in advance, $45 day of show or $65 for a two-day pass.

For tickets, visit the box office between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Wednesday-Friday at 504 Congress St., call 800-745-3000, or visit The State Theatre box office will open one hour before doors night of show.
