MANIFESTO, new album from The Joe Moss Band on 212 records

The highly anticipated new studio release from 2013 Chicago BLUES HALL OF FAME Inductee, Joe Moss, is his first since 2008's critically acclaimed Maricela's Smile

MANIFESTO is a public declaration of one's aims and if this album is an indication Joe Moss is shooting for the stars! The album, co-produced by Moss and Mike Zabrin, is a vision of where The Joe Moss Band has been and where they are going. It is the product of years of songwriting, road gigs, self reflection, collaboration and pure joy!

There are 11 original Joe Moss compositions and two Otis Rush covers, featuring The ROOMFUL OF BLUES Horn section: Rich Lataille- sax, Mark Early- Sax and Doug Woolverton- Trumpet on three tracks. The JOE MOSS BAND is among one of the major leading heavy weights performing on the National Blues circuit today, making them a true force to be reckoned with. The band consists of Joe Moss (vocals and guitar),  Greg Sefner (Hammond organ), Dana Thompson (Drum) and Mike “Funktastic” Zabrin (Bass). The album also includes the fabulous background vocals of Ashley Otis and last but certainly not least the red-hot, killer CHICAGO HORNS, featuring Bryan Fritz (Sax), Norman Palm (Trombone) and Ryan Nyther (Trumpet) on two tracks! 

About Joe Moss
A guitarist since the age of 10, Moss was given his passport into the blues world by Buddy Scott, who noticed him at a jam session at Rosa’s Blues Lounge in Chicago. Soon, Moss was playing seven nights a week as a member of Buddy Scott’s Rib Tips Band. Moss’s guitar skills, quickly, became notorious on the local scene and he became an in-demand sideman. In 1996, Joe started his own band and has never looked back since. Keeping a full schedule, the band continues to record and tour across the country. In addition, Moss has recorded five albums of his own on 212 records label.
