Welcome

The Moe Ribbs Blues Band consists of  a core of seasoned performers starting with  sensational blues guitarist Wade Hickam who fronted a popular local blues band, Night Train, for ten years, Will Bagby aka The Jack Hammer (drums) who has decades of experience playing with bands in the LA area and now in Seattle , Bear Drury a top bass player, and one of the best blues singers around, Nick Nickolas a long time pro and a true master on guitar and vocals, and Rich Greenberg (harmonica) who has been blowing the blues since the late 1960s.  We play Chicago blues in the style of (and to honor) the men and women who came before us like Muddy Waters, Otis Rush, Albert King, Koko Taylor, Magic Sam and others. Playing both originals and covers we offer blues the way you like it with feeling and so greasy you better bring a bib.

Busy summer 

The Moe Ribbs Blues Band is gearing up for a busy summer of gigs. Starting with Saturday, June 4th, at Luther;s Table, we follow that show with an appearance at the Maple Valley Days Festival on Friday, June 10th, at 7:15.  This is an opportunity for a fun time at great local festival located at Lake Wilderness Park in Maple Valley. Come and enjoy some good music, food and vendors in a peaceful setting.  Here is a link to the festival home page - http://www.maplevalleydays.com/index.html

After that gig we will have five appearances at the Des Moines Farrners Market located at the Des Moines Marina.  We have had a great time performing at this Market the past couple of years (previously as The Fabulous Mojo Kings).  A beautiful setting at the marina with  boats, water and lots of sunshine, coupled with some great food and craft vendors, the Des Moines Farmers Market is a great place to be on a sunny summer day.  We will be at the market on June 18th, July 2nd , July30th, August 20th and September 3rd - all shows are from 12-2 pm.  It would be great to see you there.  Here is a link to the market's website - http://www.dmfm.org/DMFM/Home.html
