Bob Moses Commands the Beat

As part of Red Bull Sound Select Presents: 30 Days in LA, Bob Moses played to a sold out house at The Wiltern in Los Angeles last night. The show was nothing short of astonishing. The sexy duo (trio if you count the addition of a drummer) played numerous tracks of their critically acclaimed album Days Gone By, but even went back as far as their first song ever written as Bob Moses, “Hands To Hold.”

Former high school friends Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance formed Bob Moses in Brooklyn, NY back in 2012. Despite differing backgrounds in rock music and trance, they found a way to marry their sounds and created the obviously perfect love-child.

While melancholic at times, their music is always upbeat enough to keep fans dancing. The dapper chaps were dressed in matching tortured-soul outfits, all in black, naturally, to perfectly suit their trademark sound of sulky introspectiveness yet un-phased cool.

The show was well complemented by a remarkable light show, sending beams of blue light dancing across the ceiling and audience, interrupted only occasionally to shift the focus to a sexy red spotlight highlighting one musician at a time in the otherwise dark room.

All in all, hats off. This was a night to remember.
