MOXIE’s Signature Show

MOXIE’s Signature Show features our full range of styles, from swing to Brazilian samba, all with our original arrangements. The program runs up to two hours and includes upbeat dance and jazz tunes, romantic ballads and solo spots. For smaller venues, we can perform with keyboard as a quartet. At larger events or outdoors, we can use our full rhythm section with keyboard, bass, drums and optional saxophone/clarinet. Costume changes, stories and information about the music and song writers who inspired us complete the show, which is suitable for audiences of all ages.
