The Moore Brothers_______________
Get ready!!! to be entertained by one of the most versatile music acts in the country. You've heard of three men and a baby, how about four brothers and a wife. Meet the Moore Brothers; four real brothers, Rick, John, Bill and Mike Moore and the wife, Janie. Together they make up the most unique music act you will ever see. They sing Doo-Wop, they do the 50's, they do the 60's, including the high notes of those great songs of Jay & the Americans and Roy Orbison. They do classic rock. They do hits of the country legends as well as today's best country artists. But that's not all. They do full costume tributes to groups like ZZ Top, the Beatles and the hilarious Soggy Bottom Boys from the movie O Brother Where Art Thou and their much requested original Duck Dynasty Skit Song. Want to hear Johnny Cash and June Carter or Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty? How about guys that can play hard rockin' double lead guitars then pick up the fiddle and do great foot-stompin' country. They do it all. The charismatic appeal of this family band has won them a fan base that stretches from Iowa to New Jersey and from Massachusetts to Georgia. Their blend of music and comedy and their mastery at performing tributes to a variety of artists has made the Moore Brothers one of the most sought after bands in the industry and has kept audiences traveling hundreds of miles for repeat performances.
The Moore Brothers come from a musical family of fifteen children. They are comprised of four brothers, Rick, Mike, Bill, and John and also feature Mike's wife Janie. The brothers started playing professionally with their father's country band when they were just small children. Today they are one of the most polished, professional show bands in the country. Because they have entertained so many different kinds of audiences, their music has grown to reflect a wide variety of musical tastes. They make no excuses for playing so many styles of music since that is what they like and they have found that is what the audiences like about them. In a typical stage show you might hear anything from classic rock to classic country to a standard Big Band number. Of course every show is filled with that unique brand of Moore Brothers humor and comedy skits. The Brothers have played states all over the country including, Georgia, Iowa, Massachusetts, Ohio, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Alabama, Maryland and West Virginia. They have even entertained the United States Marines at Paris Island.
As you probably guessed, The Moore Brothers play for all types of engagements including dances, weddings, festivals, carnivals, fairs, nightclubs, and parties of all types, but most notable is their stage show. Having opened shows for country legends including Tammy Wynette, Lynn Anderson, Don Williams, Bill Anderson, Gene Watson, Freddy Fender, Red Sovine, Porter Wagner, Confederate Railroad and others, their show has become recognized as one of the best family shows around. The Moore Brothers have also done their share of recording, having recorded in some of the finest studios in the world, including Columbia in New York, and award-winning studios in Nashville. They are accomplished song writers and regularly include original music in their shows. Their CD, "Credit To You" was nominated "Album of the Month" for the month of June, 2002 on the Independent European Charts. Three songs off their album charted on the Top 100 Country Singles Chart. One of the songs on the CD titled 'Hank is Dead' made quite a stir and because of it, they were asked to perform in Alabama at the Hank Williams Sr. International Fan Club festival where they opened for numerous country legends. They also had the honor to be the backup band for early members of Hank Williams' Drifting Cowboys band.
The Moore Brothers have released numerous CD's which are available on their music page. And remember to check out their video page to see select videos or go to YouTube to view more.
