Melding the sound and instrumentation of funk fusion with the irresistible drive of house, Moses Mayes's return to the spotlight has been fully realised with the release of their second outing 'Needle to the Groove'.

This house-rocking seven-piece band includes guitar, bass, turntables, vintage keyboards, drums, horns and percussion - creating a sound that any one can dance or bob their heads to.

The music appeals to a diverse audience, everyone from the discerning listener to those who just want to move to the groove. And many have grooved: With over 300 shows in the last four years, Moses Mayes has made appearances at such notable events like Le Festival Internaionale du Jazz du Montreal, the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, NXNE, Western Canadian Music Week, the NEMO Conference and the Yellowknife FunkFest.

During this time they've shared the stage with funk legends like James Brown & Soul Manifesto, Orishas, The New Deal, The Pocket Dwellers, Kid Koala and Ivana Santilli. One of Canada's premier touring bands, the group's self-titled debut album captured the 2001 Prairie Music Award for Outstanding Urban/Dance Recording. Now the collective introduces 'Needle to the Groove', the long anticipated follow up. The 12 songs featured reflect the bands stylistic maturity into funky grooves, catchy samples and inspiring horn playing
