What a blast from the past...WOW!

By Albert K. on June 23, 2013

Saw "The Moods" at Geneva Swedish Days on Saturday night 06.22.2013... What an absolute blast! My wife and I felt like we were being transformed back to the 60's and 70's. They hit every note and their harmonzing was perfect. They had a great selection of songs that had every person there young and old hopping on their feet. Their renditions of Earth, Wind & Fire, The Four Tops, Tempatations, Drifters, Sly & the Family Stone and Marvin Gaye was just plain fun. It is rare at one of these festivals that someone gets a standing ovation and the Geneva crowd had them come back for an encore. Can't wait to see this band again.
