“We get a lot of great opportunities to make a living as a professional band in Halifax,” says Jeffrey Mosher, singer and saxophonist in The Mellotones. “That keeps us motivated, as do our levels of traditional R&B and funk music. The players in the band, that’s the type of music we’re interested in playing. A band that’s been together for 20 years—it’s a point of pride to keep it going.” Two decades in, the city’s need for the Tones shows no sign of waning, though prepare yourself now for next spring (when they head out on tour for two months as Matt Andersen’s backing band). “One of our taglines is ‘Thanks for dancing,’” says Mosher. “The music community, and the cities of Halifax and Dartmouth—we want to thank them for the support.”
