"Mo Egeston is one the 2018 STL's 77 Honorees"

A 25 year veteran of the St. Louis music scene, Mo first emerged as a band leader during the birth of the Washington Ave. nightlife scene in the mid 90's. Soon after, regional favorites Vargas Swing brought the sounds of the swing revival to the St. Louis club scene and were featured on 2 national compilations.

Next came the pioneering live electronic dance music project Urban Jazz Naturals who released 2 dance singles globally and eventually evolved into mo & dawn: the remix project. See Mo's bio for a more detailed band and recording history.  (Mo E's background info)
