Moksha has steadily built up a loyal following of fans in Las Vegas and throughout the Southwest for the past few years. With the release of their new CD, Mammal or Machine, they are entering the next phase of their music career and capturing the interest of larger audiences and musicians all over the country who travel to Vegas just to sit and perform with them, from Brian Stoltz (Neville Brothers, Funky Meters, Bob Dylan and others) who also performs on the new Moksha album to DJ Logic (Jack Johnson, Bob Weir of The Grateful Dead). The new album was mastered by Gavin Lurssen (Phish/Joy, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss/ Raising Sand from O’Brother Where Art Though).

The horn section contained members of the Santana band last night as well. They will be back at the Joint with Carlos in a couple of weeks, and came in to play with Moksha and they also perform on the new album.

The Lyons Den radio show on 91.5 FM KUNV premiered the album on air April 4th and tonight Moksha brought their album to life in front of a packed House of Blues at Mandalay Bay. Moksha Band members Pat Gray, Jeremy Parks, John Heishman and Brian Triola were joined on stage by guest vocalists and musicians who appear on the new album. The crowd was in full dance mode and on their feet throughout the show. A regular scene at a Moksha show are the body painters… and tonight the painters interpreted Mammal or Machine with their brushes on the bodies of women on the back of the stage throughout the show. It was a colorful, dynamic evening of sights and sounds and without a doubt the beginning of a new chapter for Moksha and Moksha fans.  For more information about Moksha, visit http://www.mokshatime.com/
