Biography

Pat Moss comes from a musical family and a musical community. He started playing guitar in 1961 after dancing with a little girl to a Jimmy Reed record. Encouraged and mentored by older blues musicians (to this very day), he has an understanding of the idiom that comes from playing houseparties and hog fries, as well as working as a field hand and studying the "Masters." Ernest White, Willie King, DC Minner, and many others encouraged him to find his own voice, tone, and style.
This is not a bunch of overworked 12 bar and redundant shuffle blues, this is a fresh rendering of the idiom with many engaging originals and articulate arrangements of the standards. The set list includes new arrangements of many deep soul and blues songs that have been overlooked by more "commercial" bands.
Expect to be entertained, prepare to groove.
