Machine Gun Moses brings together funky rock, reggae, and soulful jam (with a little touch of the blues) into a delicious tasting treat for your ears. Our songs are influenced by artists such as Sublime, Moe., The Meters, and The Grateful Dead. We play music that everyone can get down and dance to. Our shows feature rhythmic guitar, strong vocals, funky bass, and upbeat drums.
Started in late September of 2010, Machine Gun Moses quickly became a well-known name in the DeKalb, IL music scene. With the love and support of their fans and beloved home venue (The House Cafe
) the band settled into the community as permanent fixture. After releasing their debut album ("One More Than Ten") on January 28th, 2011, they were off and running. 2011 saw Machine Gun Moses perform roughly 50 shows in 5 states (Illinois, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Missouri, and Texas). We are excited to see what 2012 brings, and hope to see you all at our upcoming shows
