A heapin’ helpin’ of dirty southern soul, with a side of funk, and a lot of jam spread on top!

Moses Jones is a N.C. based roots and Americana infused with southern rock, soul, and power percussion. The unique sound of our band is rooted in gospel, rhythm & blues, rock, salsa, soul, and country. The combination of these diverse styles creates an instant connection between the band and any type of audience.

The stories that Robert Johnson (lead vocal/guitar) tells through his songwriting speak of the fabric of life growing up in the Carolina's and have a flare that make you feel a part of the songs themselves. Songs such as “Carolina Days”,“Ole Dirt Road”, and “Won’t Do You No Harm” take you for a ride down memory lane via South I-85.

The name Moses Jones has been around longer than the band itself. Moses is the name of a prophet and Jones is a common name and represents us all. Together the name symbolizes the connection between the music, the band members, and the audience.

The formation of the band had its beginning in a local church. Band members Robert Johnson and Michael Rone (percussion) met while playing in their Christian worship band. Soon after Robert met Rodney Wallin (bass) through common music circles and enlisted him to join in developing songs that he had written. After a series of players passed through the ranks, Moses Jones finally met their destiny when Kennon Knight (drums and vocals), and Dom Val (organ and keys) joined the band and created the sound for which Robert had been searching.

A highlight of a Moses Jones show is when the band distributes drums and percussion instruments to the audience and allows them to join in on the fun. The band establishes a beat and encourages the audience to play along before taking off on a wild medley ride of songs ranging from "War" to "Use Me" to "Rapper's Delight." More than a crowd pleaser, the drum circle is inspired by Kennon Knight and his involvement with drumSTRONG, an organization that raises awareness & funds for important cancer initiatives globally.

ZIGGY POCKETS
  

Ziggy Pockets was born in rural West Virginia to a dedicated mother and a rambling guitar playing father who sang to Ziggy from the time he was old enough to listen. In 1989 his mother Kim moved him to Charlotte, North Carolina and he was introduced to the southern music culture including hip hop and southern bluegrass. Influenced by the likes of Waylon Jennings, Johnny Paycheck, 2 Pac, N.W.A., and living legend Roger Alan Wade, Ziggy developed a unique style that can only be his own. His vast love for music is evident in the songs he writes and the company he keeps. You will hear songs influenced and inspired by old greats and true stories. His music is real life and he hopes you will find a few songs that strike a chord in your own. You can hear a classic country ballad or a hardcore rap song, but most of all his versatility and love for music is what he wants to come through in his songs.
