McKinley “The Voice” Moore

Over the years McKinley Moore grew to love the soul music of Otis Redding, who he says reminded him of his mother's use of words and southern inflection. He has since perfected an arresting Otis Redding legacy show, which has received high accolade, with critics commending his voice as having a 'profound likeness to the King of Soul'. 

McKinley’s 8-piece smokin’ band regularly performs at festivals, concerts and local gigs in both the US and Europe.  The audiences love his renditions of “Dock of The Bay”, “Try A Little Tenderness”, “Respect”, “My Girl”, “Can’t Turn You Loose”, “Knock On Wood”, “Security”, “Change Is Going To Come” “Can’t Turn You Loose” and many more.  This show truly and tastefully captures the spirit of one of the greatest entertainers of our time – Otis Redding!
