Written by DeepJams on July 21, 2015
Deep Jams Radio Showcase’s the Nick Moss Band!
Nick Moss Band is distinct, honest, and intense; it’s a blend of traditional blues and progressive, jam-oriented blues rock. Nick Moss and his band have been featured performers at blues festivals across the globe, but it’s at home in Chicago, where he and his band get the ultimate stamp of approval from one Hall of Famer and blues icon Buddy Guy. Music fans from all over the world come to his famous club where they will find Moss playing. Moss’s ability to please, entertain, and amaze audiences with his staggering guitar skills that make the 16-time Blues Music Award nominee one of the top draws on the blues circuit and most exciting, dynamic performers working today.
The Nick Moss Band consists of Nick Moss, vocals, guitar and harmonica, who was a star high school athlete sidelined by a serious kidney ailment, which led him to pick up a electric bass to pass the time which eventually led to his love of performing and becoming a musician. Michael Ledbetter, vocals, guitar and percussion, a native of Chicago, he came up with a rich selection of classic soul, R&B, and blues in his home. At the age of 15, he decided to take his voice to a new realm, opera which he enjoyed for 8 years, then following his exit from classical music he realized that his heart truly lied in his roots and dove head first into the Chicago blues scene! Patrick Seals, drums and percussion, discovered his love of drums at an early age while still in middle school, by high school he was playing in many local bands of varying styles. At 18 he was accepted in to Columbia College music program and in 2010 found himself in the drum chair in Nick Moss’ new band.

Moss’ aptness to please purists and cross boundaries that have helped him connect with audiences worldwide, winning fans and making friends every night in every city when he and his band take the stage. All the great ones make their mark onstage and that’s where Moss is at his best. His superior talent is evident on his studio albums but it’s his live albums and performances that put him in the rarefied territory with the greats.
