Melding the sound and instrumentation of funk fusion with the irresistible drive of house, Moses Mayes's return to the spotlight has been fully realised with the release of their second outing 'Needle to the Groove'.
This house-rocking seven-piece band includes guitar, bass, turntables, vintage keyboards, drums, horns and percussion - creating a sound that any one can dance or bob their heads to.
With over 300 shows in the last four years, Moses Mayes has made appearances at such notable events like Le Festival Internaionale du Jazz du Montreal, the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, NXNE, Western Canadian Music Week, the NEMO Conference and the Yellowknife FunkFest.
