About Moses Mayes
Classic funk grooves, slick guitar riffs, punchy horn lines, old school keys and turntable cuts - this is Moses Mayes. A sound defined by the vision of three students of groove with Herbie Hancock, Jamiroquai and Prince as their mentors.

Since 1999, the music of Moses Mayes has been moving people on the dance floor and from their stereos across North America. Their live performances have earned them a reputation as one of the best acts in their scene, playing to festival and club audiences and leading the new funk fusion sound over the last 8 years. Add three full length releases, a three song EP, two Western Canadian Music Award, shared stages with legends Herbie Hancock and James Brown, thousands of CD sales and you have an accumulation of years of experience in orchestrating grooves and exploring sonic frontiers.

Moses Mayes's latest offering is 2007's ‘Second Ring’, their third full length album produced by veteran dance floor killer Jamie Shields (the New Deal). At the forefront, the classic Moses dance-funk grooves and signature jazz horn playing. In the new, vocals by artists Sherry St.Germain, Ariane Jean and PHATT al, each of whom adds their own flavour to the Moses sound. It's a new take on modern dance music, songs that incorporate
elements from the genres of funk fusion, jazz, house and pop. The album took the 2007 WCMA for Best Instrumental, broke the top 20 Canadian Campus Charts and received critical acclaim in the Canadian and European markets.

It’s time to hit the dance floor with a different sound...the sound of Moses Mayes.
