Moonpools & Caterpillars

Moonpools & Caterpillars was a Filipino American Rock based in Los Angeles, California. They where popular in the mid 1990’s

They released three albums commercially, The Pink Album (self-released) Lucky Dumpling , and 12 Songs which was self released. They are considered one of the most successful bands of Philippine ancestry.

The band was featured in the movies The Baby Sitters Club and Wish upon a star which was released on the 90’s

Moonpools & Caterpillars lived in Los Angeles and played many nights at the Whiskey-a-Gogo, where The Pink Album was recorded live. Lead singer Kimi Ward Encarnacion is known for being a whirling energy blast on stage. Jay Jay Encarnacion gives Moonpools & Caterpillars their distinct guitar sounds, which vary from ethereal chorusing to large, wall of sound distortion. Bassist Tim DePala and drummer Gugut Salgado finish up the line-up as the rhythm section. Now that’s a band.
