Mo E's Music Updates. All-Stars Saturday. Soul Alliance with CocoSoul Sunday.
mo E All-Stars Breakbeat Throwdown is happening again this Saturday September 18. This was a last minute addition but we're having so much fun developing this thing that we jumped at the chance. I'll be joined by Grover Stewart on drums and Duane "Jingo" Williams on percussion. Early we keep it chill with some head bobbing dinner grooves. Later in the evening we will be playing some original ideas and arrangements in the styles of house, downtempo and drum and bass with influences of jazz, Latin and soul. Check out this promo to hear a live clip from last weekend. www.youtube.com/watch.
We'll be there from 8- 11:30 PM with a DJ to follow. Last time we had some folks up and dancing during the last set. Good times indeed.

On Sunday September 19 its mo E's Lola Live! with Soul Alliance Trio featuring CocoSoul. As you know from the last note we're all very proud of Coco for winning the St. Louis level of the Budweiser Superfest Battle for the Crown. She's now competing nationally but the competition is all online. So basically the contestant with the most computer savvy fans will win nationals. Help Coco out by voting daily at www.battleforthecrown.com. You are asked to verify your age since its an alcohol company and they also ask that you watch 2 videos before voting. You do not have to watch the complete video. Or even more than a couple of seconds....if you're in a hurry.
Sean Holland joins me for a set of Acid Jazz at 11 AM which will include a couple of mo E originals. Coco takes the stage at noon for 2 sets of chilled out house, disco and soul. This is an all ages event and Lola has expanded into a seriously cool place to hang, eat, drink and enjoy good live music. We'd love to see you!
