The music appeals to a diverse audience, everyone from the discerning listener to those who just want to move to the groove. And many have grooved: With over 400 shows in the last six years including numerous national tours, Moses Mayes has made appearances at such notable events like Le Festival Internaionale du Jazz du Montreal, the Vancouver International Jazz Festival and Victoria’s ICA Folkfest.

Moses Mayes recently finished recording their third full length release produced by Jamie Shields (the New Deal). Exploring new paths and ways, the new album promises to capture the bands live sound yet combine new ideas and vocals into the mix. The new record is expected to drop in the fall of 2006.
