Motion Pictures is a six piece rock and roll band from Raleigh, NC and was formed in 2009. Our first studio effort, a five-song, self-titled EP, was released in 2012 and showcases our many influences from all genres of music. The self-titled and self-produced release contains a diverse mix of melodic and thoughtful rock and roll. From catchy hooks on “Rock ‘n’ Roll Radiate” to dark tones and vivid imagery on “Mean Old Man,” you can hear many of our influences channeled into our original tunes.
Motion Pictures’ live shows are fun, energetic, and enjoyed by fans of many genres but mostly just for people who appreciate old-fashioned, genuine rock music. With an arsenal of nearly 30 original compositions and countless cover songs we consider ‘old favorites’, Motion Pictures is easily able to arrange its performances to provide maximum enjoyment by those attending our show for the first time and especially for those who see many of our shows.
