Biography

“Hey man, what are you up to? You need to come down to the Barley Pub and hear this music!” These words, shouted on a cell phone some time after 9pm on November 17th, 2008, sum up the general sentiment at Moon Minion’s first gig with its stacked new lineup. It’s no surprise, really; combining the warm sounds of 60s and 70s soul with the deep, slick grooves of modern neo-soul, hip-hop, and R&B, Moon Minion has near universal appeal. Aaron Katz (drums, Percy Hill) Greg Rothwell (bass, The Mystery Button) and Chris Sink (keyboards, Sound Inc) lay the rock solid foundation. Jim Dozet (guitar, The Press Project) and Chris Klaxton (trumpet, The Press Project) tread lightly over the groove, and Felicia “Liight” Thomas (vocals, ILLA records) cuts through it all with her sexy, soulful vocals. On their new EP, “Love for Music,” Moon Minion demonstrates that while they’ll most definitely kill it live, they also know how to construct a record worth playing again and again.
