Moves Collective are a funk-rock heavy jamband based in Ocean Beach, California. They are turning heads all over the West, sharing stages with musical greats like Leftover Salmon, Hot Buttered Rum, Fruition, Melvin Seals and JGB, Brother's Gow, Marcus Rezak, and many more. Founded in early 2014, The Moves quickly developed a reputation for timeless songwriting, high energy shows, exciting collaborations and constant touring (hucking). What could be coined "Ameridelic", Moves Collective's unique music celebrates and is expanding the relationship between the audience and the stage.

NOLA musician Albanie Falletta has an irresistible voice is that is at the same time early jazz and completely honest - Louis and Billy would be proud and smiling. As a guitarist she has the chops and panache to hang with the best jazzers around and an uncanny ability to keep the groove rock solid as she weaves her melodic lines in and out of the tune. Her songwriting is deep, interesting and easy as a walk in the park.

Also part of this NOLA team:

Cindy McDermott (Asheville, NC) is a first-class mandolin player and singer, with a soft and sultry voice that will lure you into a false sense of security and then slap you back to reality with a wicked turn of phrase. Her mandolin playing is fresh, exciting and can be at the same time blisteringly hot and heart achingly sweet.

Ronnie Ontiveros and Ben Bonham (Hood River, OR) form a tight musical team that has worked together for many years. Ben is an accomplished guitar and steel guitarist. Ronnie holds down the bass duties with a rare skill and delight - and he drives the van, handles the ruffians and shouts a bit. Together they provide the perfect backdrop on which these master musicians works their magic.
