Saturday 8/28 it’s time to Celebrate the Groove at Blue Strawberry with an evening of Funky, Jazz influenced Soulful music - Mo Egeston All-Stars style!. Pianist and composer Mo Egeston’s Celebrate the Groove event was born out of a residency at the former Washington Ave club Lola. Since 2021 has been a year of transition Mo decided that now would be a good time to revisit this event with a series of performances in the St. Louis area.
With Mo Egeston All-Stars, Mo has created a vehicle for his original music along with reimagined vocal favorites. Creating a unique sound that features a blend of elements of soul, jazz, funk & Latin served on a bed of deep grooves.
The night will feature vocalists Jessica Butler and Robert Nelson singing special reworked arrangements of music by Jody Watley\4Hero; Robert Glasper\Norah Jones; Lisa Stansfield, Donny Hathaway/Roberta Flack, Adele/the Cure, Koop, Calvin Harris, Erykah Badu, MJ, Bobby Caldwell and more.
The evening will also feature Mo’s long time collaborator Duane “Jingo" Williams on percussion, Andrew Gibson on drums and Tilton Yokley on bass.
