Mo E All-Stars one sheet download here.
Mo E All-Stars (YouTube) brings to life the groove based and dance floor influenced styles that have been a part of Maurice "Mo" Egeston's original music since his days with UJN. With a crew of like minded players in place Mo is free to explore a sound that is rooted in electronic music and studio style production while keeping the focus on the live players. (Mo E All-Stars on Facebook)
For club and festival dates the All-Stars focus on original music and live remixes, creating a sound that touches on electronic music, jazz, Latin, funk and soul.
For private events and corporate functions the set expands to include a wide range of groove based music featuring reworks of music by artists like Marvin Gaye, Daft Punk, Herbie Hancock, Santana, Moloko, Michael Jackson, Bill Withers, Jimi Hendrix, Dee-Lite and more.
Drummer Grover Stewart and percussionist Duane “Jingo” Williams are at the center of the All-Stars groove. They share a love of the sounds of progressive soul, deep house, nu jazz and electronica and take Mo's ideas from the studio to the stage with amazing ease.
Mo E All-Stars also perform as a 6-7 piece band that features vocalists Cocosoul and Mario Pascal. The rhythm section expands to include Teddy Brookins (Mo E3, Brothers Lazaroff) on bass as well as guitarists and additional musicians from the St. Louis jazz and soul scene.
