"Turn on, Tune In"

Cherryville's Trio has an old school bluesy, front porch thing going on. There's a lot of potential here, and it's definitely one of many groups to keep an eye out for. - Creative Loafing / Jeff Hahne


Still working on that hot first release.



Moses Cherry picked up his first guitar at age five. Being a small child, he gravitated to the mandolin and made it his main instrument for most of his life. A trip to see his main mandolin influence, Darin Aldridge play blues with the Harris Brothers set him on a trail to find the blues which led him to the tenor guitar. Zac McBee and Johnny Burns of Attila's Honey found him along the way and The Topless Gospel Choir was born. If you are used to hearing Blues/Rock and you think all blues bands are same, you obviously have not been to hear Moses Cherry and The Topless Gospel Choir. Moses Cherry is fusing Piedmont and Delta styles such as those of R.L. Burnside and Robert Johnson along with early Chicago Chess Records material. Johnny Burns has played with or shared the stage with many of the great old bluesmen. Moses also scourers the internet for obscure songs by people you never heard of. Zac McBee plays smoking harp and like Moses is too young to know this stuff. Check these guys out if you are tired of the same old same old bar blues or if you just want to hear a band play real blues with an ear to the ground of the past.

Moses Cherry has shared the stage with a diverse group of musicians including The Harris Brothers, Darin Aldridge, Big Ron Hunter,George Hamilton IV, and The Hot House Hefftones.

Johnny Burns has shared the stage with Blues Legends such as Hubert Sumlin, Sam Lay, Willie King and Candi Shines as well as a younger group including Jock Webb, Todd Johnson, Clay Swofford, Matt Kimbrell, Elnora Spencer, Sleepy Steve Hughes and Mike Cogan
