Here’s the latest from Mo Egeston Music and Mo Egeston Piano Studio.
Well we’ve put in the work…time to do this thing! This Sunday I’m very excited to get the crew back together for another concert. We’ll be doing 2 sets featuring original music from the Mo Egeston repertoire as well as works written by CocoSoul and Mario Pascal. We’ll also feature Coco, Mario and drummer Grover Stewart on vocals performing reworks/remixes of music by Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers, Raul Midon, Herbie Hancock, Fertile Ground and more.
Sunday April 17- Mo Egeston All-Stars "What is Progressive Soul?" featuring CocoSoul and Mario Pascal.
Our friends from Media Outlaws are doing a cool video series where they capture regional artists in a casual loft studio setting and create videos from the session. The series is called the Loft Sessions and Mo E All-Stars were recently featured. It was especially fun since we filmed on the first floor of my residence! Last week I sent the clip “the ME’s”. The following week they released “See Only Me”. Both clips feature the All-Stars in our original 3 piece setting.
