Blues and Jazz music is the United States highest original musical art form and it's our gift to the world!
In the past Classical artists like Beethoven, Bach and Mozart were commissioned by governments, royalty,the rich and churches to compose their music and this support allowed them to continue to create their art.
In the U.S. Blues and Jazz music is marginalized even though it is one of the great roots of American music. In particular it is our great original art form! One of the great things about Americans is that when something is brought to their attention and help is needed they roll up their sleeves and pitch in. The Joe Moss band is bringing this music into the 21st century and needs your help and patronage!

Soon, Moss was playing seven nights a week as a member of Buddy's Rib Tip band. Moss' guitar skills quickly became notorious on the local scene and made him an in-demand sideman.
