Taking inspiration from a variety of sources, Mo Egeston All-Stars create a unique sound around the originals, reworks and arrangements of pianist Mo Egeston. Since his days with the pioneering live house/electronic project Urban Jazz Naturals, Egeston's original music has featured influences of jazz, soul, Latin, funk and all things electronic including deep house, nujazz and drum and bass. Essentially taking familiar dance and lounge elements and using them as a starting place for organic groove based compositions.

For the next Blue Strawberry edition of Celebrate the Groove, Mo is very excited to feature Nicole Ellis on Vocals who will be making her St. Louis nightclub debut as a Vocalist. Hailing from Chattanooga, Tennessee Nikki’s powerful soul and jazz influenced vocals first caught Mo’s attention through their work together at St. John’s UCC- The Beloved Community. Along with drummer Andrew Gibson (and occasionally percussionist Duane Williams), Nikki and Mo are a part of the St. John’s Music Ministry so their musical bonds are already well developed.

Expect a fun night of high energy grooves and jazz flavored deep cuts from artists like Stevie Wonder, Corrine Bailey Rae, Solange and Roberta Flack, along with Mo’s signature original instrumental features

Sundays! Holding down the piano chair as a guest pianist behind Reverend Michelle Higgins. Andrew Gibson- drums; Tilton Yokley- Bass. St. John's does things a little differently and creative improvisatory music is definitely a huge part of their mission. Services feature an original or two of mine so get there for the Prelude!
Happy to bring music and inspiration to this warm and welcoming community. I'll be there through the end of November and some in December for certain. Not sure how long my schedule will allow me to do this so if you'd like to catch me on a Sunday (yes this is a new thing) do it sooner than later!
