“I didn’t build the stage not to play it,” Moose said.

He discovered the love of music at an early age. His mother gave music lessons at home, so he had no choice, he said.

Performing in the Hickory area for two decades, Moose found support from the music community and developed an appreciation for the community.

He also discovered a love for music festivals. He helps organize one in Union County every year.

“It’s like you’re around 20,000 of your best friends, it’s like-minded people who build a community,” Moose said.

He hopes the buzz creates a similar atmosphere locally.

Andrew Moose discusses his plans for the new concert hall in Hickory called The Hum along SW Second Avenue.



“I want it to feel like a music festival,” he said. “A lot of people may not have this opportunity to go to the big music festivals. It will be something where you can get up, move around, and have fun.

Moose is hoping the buzz can entertain spectators who typically travel to Asheville and Charlotte for concerts. It also aims to get bands playing in those areas to stop in Hickory to perform at the buzz.

Twenty years of going to concerts and making mental notes about what worked and what didn’t prepare Moose to handle the buzz, he said. Now it’s up to the community to help the Buzz succeed, he said.
