From the local area, Emma Moseley Band brought their soulful rock to Ponte Vedra Concert Hall last night, opening for Ana Popovic.
Emma Moseley fronts the band with a great set of pipes and a lot of attitude, with Sean Sammon playing bass guitar; Bobby Turner on guitar; and Freddie Heater, Jr on drums. Opening with Lost, the band set the tone of southern soul rock with powerful vocals and great guitar riffs. Happy Feet showed off the intricate drums of Freddie Heater, Jr with a classic rock groove. Roux brought the emotion to the audience and garnered the Emma Moseley Band an enthusiastic response from the crowd. Pennies brought Emma Moseley on stage with her guitar, a haunting cadence and a hard-hitting beat along with fantastic vocals. Nyquil saw Emma on guitar again, dedicating the song to all the musicians who died the previous year Emma showed off both her softer side and her ability to produce powerful vocals while the guitars engaged in some amazing riffs.
This local group is destined for a greater, larger stage with their understanding of the core of rock – great music, meaningful lyrics that speak to their fans, and fabulous vocals.
