Since the 60’s, The Moody Blues have lit up the hearts and minds of millions of rock fans with inspiring anthems like “Nights in White Satin,” “Tuesday Afternoon” and “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band).” Their unique style of music has consistently found radio airplay and continues to illuminate concert arenas around the world.
From being immortalized on The Simpsons to having their music featured in movies, TV and national ad campaigns such as VISA, guitarist/vocalist Justin Hayward, bassist/vocalist John Lodge and drummer Graeme Edge have given The Moody Blues not only a place in music history but a legacy in pop culture as well.
The group’s string of concept albums — including In Search of the Lost Chord, On The Threshold of a Dream, To Our Children’s Children’s Children, A Question of Balance, Every Good Boy Deserves Favour, and Seventh Sojourn — garnered them respect and acclaim as pioneers of concept-rock with a message.
Of their live show, the New York Post said “the trio looked remarkably sound and sounded untouched by time.” USA Weekend said “fans were on their feet applauding great music from a great rock n’ roll band with staying power beyond anybody’s ‘wildest dreams.’” And the St.Louis Post Dispatch wrote “the Moodies depend on nostalgic memories of their fans’ youth, but they also know that in the present, these songs can still move the listener.”
