Interesting Funky Music
Last night’s musical entertainment was a young band called Moxa at Church of Boston; my friend works with the drummer. He has been promising his colleague that we’d attend a show and we finally made that happen.
Moxa is basically a jam band that incorporates funk, jazz, soul, and rock, to name a few styles.
Although their web site lists five members, there were only four people on stage last night. Interestingly, there was no guitar, just drums, keyboards, bass, and a singer.
The musicians are all talented. They don’t play a style that appeals to everyone, but I enjoyed them. However, I didn’t especially enjoy the singer.
Yes, she has a really good voice. She seemed not to fit with the music they played, yet on the CD she’s fine. And her ‘acting’ on stage detracted from the music. I wish that she had moved to the side of the stage when she wasn’t singing rather than standing front and center and throwing her long hair around. I felt like she was trying to be Stevie Nicks but she doesn’t have that ethereal quality that Ms. Nicks had (and may still have, but I haven’t seen her live since the mid-1970s).
I’m glad I saw Moxa and that we were there to support my friend’s colleague. I’d even see them again and give them another chance.
