Mo Egeston's Music Updates. Hyatt and Lola this weekend.

 Greetings, 

If you're in the STL this weekend join us downtown at the Hyatt at the Arch as Soul Alliance Trio featuring CocoSoul  takes the stage.  We'll be doing 3 sets of house, club classics, disco and soul from 9-12.  I'm posting two links to recent Soul Alliance performances below.  The first link is actually from April when the band took part in the James Brown Tribute for KDHX.  This lineup also includes Ramon White on bass and David Lazaroff on guitar. Soul Alliance as a four piece recently kicked it at Jammin at the Zoo.  There are a few clips up so I linked to one of Coco singing Golden.  

Also this weekend make Sunday Funday with the mo E trio at Lola.  Grover and Ted will be joining me with a possible sit in from percussionist Jingo Williams.   That's this Sunday from 11-2.  The new expansion is really working to everyone's benefit with more space for dining, better places to eat and watch the musicians and even a dance floor.  The trio will be exploring acid-jazz,  Latin, swing and of course some house.  Join us won't you?

Other News
Last week mo E Trio had a special sit in by guitarist Matthew Van Doran.  Matthew, a recent transplant from Orange County, is settling in downtown St. Louis.   Stay tuned- he's a great player and really nice guy.

Mo E All-Stars made its Saturday night debut last weekend at Lola.  We had a blast and DJ Steve-O was a treat. Special thanks to David, Grover, Jingo, Chris "the Proprietor" Hanson and Steve for the tasty grooves.  We return with another installment of Celebrate the Groove Saturday September 25 at Lola.
