The soulful summer sounds of Atley Moon and the Say Something Sound Machine will bring Motown to Margate with an acoustic set 6-10 p.m. Saturday, May 31 at Maynards’s Cafe, 9306 Amherst Ave.
The band has a strong following in both South Jersey and Philadelphia and are summertime mainstays at Yesterday’s in Marmora and The Whitebriar in Avalon. Philadelphians have shown the band a lot of love after years of great gigs and a stellar performance at World Cafe Live.
With endless energy and a deep repertoire of classics and originals, the dance floor fills up quickly and the beer taps are constantly flowing when Atley Moon and the Say Something Sound Machine are on stage.
In September, lead singer and guitarist Steve Mullary of Deptford, N.J. and bassist Mike Barnes of Philadelphia by way of Ocean City performed an acoustic cruise set to benefit Faces 4 Autism.
Barnes told The High Note the show will consist of an acoustic Atley Moon trio. Asked for a predication of the night to come, Barnes said Saturday, “Lots of classic Motown mixed with an atrocious amount of whiskey induced dancing.”
The band’s originals are definitely favorites among fans but its cover songs that range from “Shake, Rattle and Roll,” to “Purple Rain” capture the attention of any room in any bar in the Tri-State area. Atley Moon’s debut album “The Cellar Sessions” can be purchased on iTunes and listen to a the band’s favorites on YouTube. Follow Atley Moon and the Say Something Sound Machine on Facebook.
