Urban Groov Project appears at least once a month at Lola in the Downtown St. Louis Loft district. UG Project is essentially a live mash up of deep house, soul, Latin and jazz.
Strong emphasis is placed on mixing spontaneous improvisations with original MIDI sequences that are manipulated live. Add horns, soulful vocals, jazz influenced keyboard voicings and live percussion and you have UG Project.
This week we are joined by Mr. C Jay Conrod on vocals.
Featuring DJ Nune (L. Harris)- Brass, Beats, Vocals and Keys.
Duane "Jingo" Williams- percussion
Maurice "Mo" Egeston (mo E trio, Brothers Lazaroff, the Soul Alliance feat. CocoSoul formerly of mo & dawn and UJN)- keys and beats. 

Mo Egeston Presents the Mo E Trio Live @ Lola. Best known for his role as a band leader pianist Mo Egeston is stepping out front and leading his own trio in 2010

Using influences from all the projects he plays in (the Soul Alliance, UG Project and Brothers Lazaroff) as well as his own interest in combining soul, jazz and electronic influences the Mo E Trio will seek to redefine traditional expectations.

This week the Mo E Trio will feature Grover Stewart on drums and Teddy Brookins on bass. Soul-jazz, bossa, ambient house, drum and bass and original music will be explored.
