Welcome old and new Mose Jones fans to the newly designed "Remembering Mose Jones" website. Thanks for looking around at the years of info and music for this classic and sometimes not so classic Southern Band from Atlanta, GA.
Mose Jones' history in regard to the "Southern sound" is well documented and appreciated by many music insiders. In an exploding era of "Southern Music", e.g., Macon Georgia's Capricorn Records, the Allman Brothers, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Wet Willie, Hydra, Marshall Tucker…to name a few, Al Kooper moved to Atlanta in 1972 to sign up-and-coming Southern bands on his newly created "Sounds of the South" label / MCA Records. The first band he signed, based on their live performances at the Atlanta nightclub FUNOCHIOS, was MOSE JONES, where Al would sit-in and jam to all hours of the night, convinced that Mose Jones had the talent, musicianship and driving sound that he was looking for to kick-start his new label. With the persuading of Mose Jones, the second band Al Kooper signed was a little known band coming up from Jacksonville to play at FUNOCHIOS, whom Mose Jones had become good friends with….that band was - Lynyrd Skynyrd!
