Bio

It was in the spring of 2004 when all of the pieces fell together to form Mozay. Denis Desloge, Gary L. Steele II, and Sam Huff had been playing together since middle school. By the time high school ended they were in search of a bassist. The process of discovering a talented bassist usually takes a while, but they were lucky. Each of them had one bassist in mind, their long time friend and musician Ryan Miller. All four musical styles blended together would create something none of them had ever experienced before. Sam and Ryan had been jamming together over the years, so there was already chemistry between the two of them. After the first night of playing together they knew it would be good. And several practices after that they knew it was going to be something great, Mozay was born.

The sound of Mozay is stemmed from many influences including 311, Incubus, Phish, and Led Zeppelin. One unique aspect of Mozay’s sound is the presence of two lead singers, with two guitars adding to the harmonious pleasure. The rhythm section consists of funky bass and tight drums that fuse together a polished sound, creating the driving force of the band. The sound of Mozay includes a little rock, fusion, and jam feel all mixed up in the same bowl.

With the success of Sam, Denis, and Gary’s previous band they were lucky to already have connections. They played several gigs throughout parts of the east coast. Everything was coming together until school started back up. All four members of Mozay attend college and study Jazz. But there was one problem, Sam and Denis were going down to Wilmington, NC to study and Gary and Ryan were staying in Northern Virginia. Some very serious decisions had to be made. What had just come together could not be broken that easy. Unwilling to let distance become a factor, they worked harder and put more effort into their playing. Ultimately, it has made them a stronger band. The members of Mozay see music as a way of life; their number one priority; their calling. They take their music very seriously and are up for any challenge placed before them.

Although distance is a factor, Mozay has continued to play together as much as possible. In November, they made it to the finals of the Jaxx Battle of the Bands in Springfield, VA. The BOTB had over 150 participants and Mozay placed second. With the studio time won they will be recording a new demo in early 2005. Along with plans of playing up and down the east coast, their main priority is to spread the sound of Mozay as far as they possibly can. Hope you’re there to listen.
