MoChester Brings New, Original Material to Kings Rook by Ryan Smith

It may have been the band’s early exposures to classic Motown grooves that spelled out the first inspiration for the “Mo” in Rochester, N.Y.-based MoChester – their senses of geography did the rest.

But, since they formed in 2001, the four-piece band has made a habit of mashing the “Mo” with other influences – rootsy reggae, crunchy rock, and catchy pop – to make a sound that’s MoChester’s signature.

On Saturday, June 27, the band will be sonically signing in at Kings Rook Club, presenting yet another free show that kicks off at 9 p.m.

Band members say fans and newbies alike will have the chance to get down to tunes from both of MoChester’s full albums, Stop and Go and Lost and Found, along with plenty of new dance-worthy, high-energy originals.

“We are very stoked for our debut at Kings Rook and look forward to an epic night full of dancing, rocking, and getting to know some new friends,” MoChester guitarist/pianist/vocalist/cowbellist Jonathan Sheffer told the Reader recently.

“The past few years, we've started leaning more towards a reggae groove sound,” he added, and “we’ll be bringing a ton of new original material that reflects the new growth and shift in direction.”

Let’s have some Mo, then. – Ryan Smith
