Mosey Beat is a progressive funk rock jam band bringing high energy dance grooves, mellow waves, and rock and roll to create a new fusion of sound. The power trio was formed in 2012. Their original music has gained momentum in the NEPA area with their unique live show and improvised jams.
 
Consisting of Taylor O'Connor (guitar, vocals), Blair O'Connor (drums, vocals), and Thomas Hart (bass), the band has a passion for creating original music and composing jams in real time. Drawing inspiration from a wide variety of genres, Mosey Beat shows prowess and is not afraid to break the mold when it comes to their songs. Their ability to captivate an audience and read the energy in the room allows for a new live show every single night.

"Are they funk? Prog rock? Jam band? The answer is all of the above. (Trust me, that's a good thing.) Phillipsburg's Mosey Beat will have you moving, grooving and shaking your moneymaker in 60 seconds or less."
