Moses Soul

The idea for Moses Soul came from the desire to do something different and authentic. Shortly after their previous band fell apart, Christopher Owens and Jake Keller agreed they didn't want to put together another tired, middle aged, same-old-songs band. Instead, they strove for something that would appeal to everyone. This meant the band needed to include: timeless songs, great players, fantastic singers, and most importantly a full horn section. The band had to focus on the amazing soul music from the 60's and 70's including hits from Stax, Mowtown and Atlantic records. Set lists also featured music from Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Etta James, and The Temptations to name a few. Surprisingly, it took less than a month to assemble the necessary pieces and to schedule the first rehearsal. Doubts about this project were put to rest after the very first song. Was it perfect? No, but it was fantastic! Unfortunately, in the ensuing months several line-up changes occurred. However, Chris and Jake were determined to make this work because it was so good and so much fun. Almost a year later all the right pieces came together, and the puzzle was finally completed. They are now a force ready to spread the joy of music to anyone willing to listen and to have a good time.

Moses Soul features: Tracy Dunlap on vocals and Kayla Rokosz on vocals, Brandon Sosebee on vocals and keys, Christopher Owens on vocals and guitar, Al Stoy on guitar, Mark Brown on bass, Jake Keller on drums, and last but definitely not least Kevin Arney on trombone, Christopher Melk on sax, and Charlie Melk on trumpet.

Doors open at 6PM and the performance starts at 9 PM.
