Moses Jones – Band Leader, Saxophone, Keys, Drums
Moses eats, sleeps and breathes music. Yeah, we can’t get him to sleep most nights, because he’d rather stay up and write music or work out that new arrangement or practice or do social media or close a deal on a venue or any number of music related projects. Does he work too much? Hell yes. But we can definitely argue that he is also having way too much fun. Born and raised in Defiance, OH, Moses started his music career as soon as he could ride a bike. It was natural progression as his father was a musician. Moses went on to play Baritone Sax for the Fabulous Jades in California and the High Country Brass Senior Drum Corps in Denver. New to Colorado, Moses quickly climbed the local music scene ladder and built one of the strongest drawing and regionally recognized dance bands, The Moses Jones Band. He’s back at it again. Mr. J and the Smooth Expressions is an 11-piece variety dance/party band that will make your feet beg you to get out on the dance floor. If you’re looking for something different, look no further than The Mash Masters. Mashups are created by taking contemporary and vintage songs from all genres and combining them to produce a unique and most definitely, danceable sound. Moses released his original work this year on a CD fittingly titled “Legendary”. Moses subscribes to the belief that bigger is better. His cover bands may be 11-piece, complete with a horn section, but his original band, Moses Jones Rock Funk Orchestra, is an 18-piece band. Ya, we thought you’d have to read that again. Be on the lookout for the Orchestra tour dates in 2015. If that isn’t enough to keep this all around, fun-loving guy busy, Moses works as an agent for Alpine Music Connection and Road Dawg Touring and runs his own promotions and publicity company, MJ Entertainment.
