Moses Jones Moses Jones

Born in Defiance OH, Moses Jones began his musical career in Sikeston, MO at age 5 sitting at the piano – his feet not even touching the floor. Following that he started to play all four Saxophones (soprano, tenor, baritone, alto) the Tuba, Percussion, Drums and Baritone. Once Moses began to play professionally, he chose the Fabulous Jades in California and then High Country Brass Senior Drum Corps in Denver. New to Colorado, Moses Jones 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 with Mr. J and the Smooth Expressions, an 12-piece corporate party band that will make your feet beg you to get out on the dance floor. The appropriately titled CD “Legendary” of Moses Jones’ original work was released 2014. The CD was nominated for two Hollywood Music Awards for “funky Cruise” and “Walk this Road Alone”. Moses subscribes to the belief that bigger is better. His cover bands may be 12-piece, complete with a horn section, but his original band, Moses Jones Rock Funk Orchestra, is an 18-piece band. 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. Now Moses has become a Colorado Legend, combining Rock, Funk, Blues and Jazz, creating his own original and captivating sound genre, ‘Rock Funk.

Keep up the good work this was really original.”” - Reverbnation ““Really enjoyable and danceable music, the lyrics are interesting and in tone with the music in the background which makes the song catchy and nice to listen.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
