Mōksha [mōke-sha]- Las Vegas' Secret Weapon
Explosive shows, filled with an arsenal of well-crafted material, have earned Moksha their reputation as Las Vegas' secret weapon. This well-oiled machine is now emerging from the glitz and glamour of Sin City and quickly garnering a solid following of loyal fans on the West Coast. With guitar, keys, bass, drums, and horns, this unique blend of musicians lives and breathes in a deep pocket of funk rock. Swirling in subtlety, their music paints a sonic landscape that unfolds in the moment and feeds on the dynamic ebb and flow of audience and band interconnection. In other words, they will melt your faces.
In 2010, Moksha joined forces with guitar legend Brian Stoltz (of Neville Brothers, Funky Meters, Bob Dylan and others) in the studio to record their first full length album "Mammal or Machine". J. Evan Wade of the Homegrown Music Network said it best “Mammal or Machine showcases lush compositions steeped in blues, rock, and elements of electronica as well. The resulting combinations are ambitious, well-executed, and result in an uncompromising “jam” album full of twists and turns." The album gathered critical acclaim when the Las Vegas Weekly described the album's sound as “can only be described as unstoppable", while Getexposedmusic.com called Mammal or Machine “a sound we can all groove on.” The same year, Moksha took home the award for “Best Alternative Progressive Band” at the Vegas Rocks! Award show.
The Two amazing members of March Fourth Marching Band (Daniel Lamb on Trombone and Joel Ritchie on Trumpet) provide their big, funky, fantastic sounds as they take this evening of tasty tunes even higher!
