Capital Region's Moxie coming to town

"We got a great response from that show," he said, adding the band was asked to come back only a few weeks later. "Since then, we have been back at the Turtle and have played a handful of shows over at Olive Ridley's."

Though Moxie itself is successful, said Dukes, each of the band members works on their own side projects, proving each is "into the creation of music in general."

"Mike Thomas is an accomplished songwriter and plays his songs within his shows ... Pete has also been known to write songs for his own recordings as well," said Dukes, who even released a new solo album with Always Records Inc. called "Greater Than Me."

"We bring stuff we learn elsewhere to the table here, and it keeps it fresh," said Thomas.

"Typically though, we keep original songs to our respective original projects and though we play them live from time to time, we haven't had plans to make an album together as Moxie," added Dukes.

The band is slated to play the Naked Turtle this Friday, July 9, with plans to have more shows in Plattsburgh this fall, said Dukes.

"We have recently slowed down our show schedule to make some room for our other projects, but we will be keeping when we are able to play updated on our Web pages," he said.

Moxie can be found on Facebook and on MySpace at www.myspace.com/wegotmoxie. Video of their shows can also be found on-line at www.youtube.com/user/hendrixfreek.

(Editor's Note: This Friday night's show at the Naked Turtle begins at 10 p.m.)
