The Moxies are a three piece outfit from Cleveland, Ohio consisting of Marco Ciofani (vocals, guitar), Kevin Werfield (drums) and Tyler Adams (bass). Their sound is an amalgam of rockabilly garage rock with a gritty, blues sensibility. They found their name on a retro, blue cream soda pop. They found their signature look in wing-tipped shoes and a black tie aesthetic. And they perform with a passion and vehemence akin to the origins of rock and roll.
The Moxies draw from classic influences from Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Etta James, to modern artists such as their hero Jack White, Cold War Kids, Arctic Monkeys and Cage the Elephant. Because the band’s sound is shaped by decades of rock, they appeal to audiences of all ages. Marco writes lyrics that range from aggressively energetic with songs like "Night Crawler" and "Be Fast Be Smooth" to bluesy angst "Lightning" with enough youthful energy to make even the most jaded listener sing and dance along.
In December 2012, The Moxies really captured the attention of the Cleveland music scene performing a sold out event at The Beachland Ballroom. Attending that night was A&R Veteran Kim Stephens, who signed them to a management contract under his company Forward Entertainment.
The band released their second EP, August 16, 2013 receiving heavy airplay on Cleveland's Sound 87.7 with their singles 'Nightcrawler' and 'Be Fast Be Smooth'.
The band has been headlining sold out shows all around Cleveland throughout 2014 and recently signed a publishing deal with Round Hill Music. This fall the band plans on heading to Nashville to write and record new material with producer Marti Fredericksen. Fredericksen is a record producer and songwriter who is best known for his work with Aerosmith, Gavin Rossdale, Carrie Underwood, Buckcherry, Daughtry, Ozzy Osbourne and Faith Hill.
