MO'Z MOTLEY BLUES is a professional original and cover band presenting blues infected rock, pop, soul and country music for every occasion. They are MOTLEY because their repertoire is not a classic blues list but an eclectic modern mix of blues elements interlaced into danceable beats and melodies that talk about current trends and topics. The band has performed at festivals, clubs, private events, on radio and on television in the Reno-Tahoe area since 2013. Currently they have three originals on ITunes/Spodify and other music sites(Monique De Haviland: Evermore, When I'm Done, Put some Muscle in it).
Monique De Haviland(MoniqueDeHaviland.com): Band leader and songwriter of the group ~with raw and sultry lead vocals, plays rhythm guitar, keyboards and flute. Monique (hence "Mo") has been on tours around the globe signing her first record deal at 15 with a discography of five albums and one silver single in Europe. She is currently recording her next Album with the Motley Blues. She calls herself the "secretary" and "mama Mo" of the group.
Mylo McCormick(FB: MyloMcCormickMusic): Guitars, lead vocals~ Mylo has been making music since he was 5 years old and is from artsy Silver City, Nevada . The grandson of a local art legend, he carries on the torch in music. Just leaving his teens, hence "the kid", he is a masterful young guitarist with tasteful riffs and solos that would make Jimi H and Stevie R V take notice. He fires up the audience and is the driving force behind the Motley "blues" flavor.
Samantha Moore: Electric bass, ukulele bass, upright bass, acoustic bass, rhythm guitar, percussionist, backing vocals~Samantha is known for a big smile as she drives the dance grooves with her bass lines-she learned guitar at a young age in Guatemala and stayed with music throughout her life. When she puts on a show she wears many "hats". Come see for yourself.
Don LaLonde: Drums, percussion, lead vocals~Don has performed with many different groups in showrooms, clubs, and concert venues between CA and NV, Don is the "pulse" of the band and keeps the audience dancing from the moment the downbeat hits. He is the "bond" not only for keeping this Motley family connected but also because of his JB-like qualities as a former US Navy -"man of steel".
