The Moss Brothers Band is unmistakably Southern rock, but with a surprising funk twist. The songs feature whiskey-rattled vocals telling stories of betrayal and re-connections and phenomenal guitar solos break through, just to make sure you are still paying attention to what bad-asses these musicians are.

But just because they're bad-ass, doesn't mean they're not good-hearted. In fact, "Family, Friends, Love" is their motto, and because they come from a musical family, they've affectionately named their off-stage music sessions, "Fam-Jams."

"That's how we learned to play as kids - we would get together with neighbors and just play," explains guitarist Troy Moss. "So we're continuing that with our kids and our spouses.

"Our goal is to make our music and bands a little more polished and practiced - an extension of what we do with our families," he said.

Signed last year to Maurice The Fish Records, The Moss Brothers Band celebrates their second record release, Monarch Jubiliee, at Jazzbones Saturday.

Expect musical surprises and special guests, and as Moss says, "It's going to be a wonderful party."

THE MOSS BROTHERS BAND RECORD RELEASE PARTY, 6 p.m. meet and greet, 8 p.m. show, Saturday, Sept. 20, Jazzbones, 2803 Sixth Ave., Tacoma, $10-$15, 253.396.9169
