“The Rev” Jeff Mosier is the founding member of Blueground Undergrass, the earliest music pioneer that merged bluegrass instruments and traditional tunes with the magnetic energy of rock and roll. The band he fronted for more than a decade had recorded four albums and built a sizable national following by combining bluegrass purism with a jam band sensibility.

The band is fronted by Jeff Mosier on banjo and Johnny Mosier on guitar. Col. Bruce Hampton alumni Kris Dale rounds out the sound on bass. The jamming is still there, and so is the intuitive musical interplay that was the hallmark of Blueground Undergrass. However, Jeff Mosier views The Mosier Brothers Band, as a middle ground between the traditional bluegrass flavored sound of Good Medicine, a band that he and his brother fronted for 23 years, and the “wall of twang” jamband sound of Blueground Undergrass.

They still jam, but the lyrics — and the sweet harmonies of the Mosier Brothers — now sit in the front seat. Mosier says..”I hope that the sound of The Mosier Brothers will open up new avenues for the original music that me and my brother Johnny have played together for more than a decade, allowing us to better tell our stories, and bring our years of experience into a connection with the people and audiences of the ever-growing and eclectic world of Americana; which, to me is a market place that holds great value in preserving live music’s value in our world and culture.”
