“More people should be listening to The Mobros ... they have done their music history homework and make what’s old sound new and fresh,” opined Otis R. Taylor Jr.
This three-man “brotha band” is comprised of actual brothers, Kelly Morris (lead vocals and guitar) and Patrick Morris (vocals and drums) and their brother from another mother bassist Zach Slaughter. The Morris boys are half Trinidadian and “... though their music drifts between soul and funk, the Calypso and island rhythm passes in and out of their music.”
For a taste of their self-described style of “funky blues and Latin soul mix with a Trini back bone,” check out their original single “Mississippi Woman” on iTunes and YouTube.
Patrick: Restaurant owner.
Zach: Music or death.
Patrick: A very laid-back chill drum style with lots of Latin rhythms incorporated in the songs, unlike the generic white wash of four-on-the-floor drummers.
Zach: Studied jazz and classical at USC and SUNY Purchase in NY. A long history of different styles gives a unique style of bass playing.
