Moho Collective @ Cyber Cafe West

The Moho Collective eschews simple classification, professing that creativity is a living, flowing art form. The instrumental trio from Rochester, NY, expresses that through dynamic song structures, driving rhythms, and such diverse influences as jazz, soul, funk, rock, and folk. The artists combine guitar and pedal steel from Kurt Johnson, bass and effects from Justin Rister, and an ever changing array of traditional and world sounds from percussonist Ryan Barclay. And as much as improvisation and creativity flow from the music itself, a major part of their vision is the inclusion of community art, whether from contributing musicians or visual arts creating during live shows. The easiest and purest description, then, would be that The Moho Collective is an art band, always eager to push art further.
