Turner Moore Band

 Posted: 2:00 AM July 05, 2013

The Turner Moore Band will preview new material, including a melancholy, bluesy love song by Emily Turner and a couple of gospel songs ("Hold to God's Unchanging Hand" and "You Are Drifting Too Far Away") by Danny Moore, at 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, July 5-6, at Alex's Plaza Restaurant, 35 N. Main St., Ashland.

Turner and Moore met in 2011 on a blind date and formed the band shortly after. The couple filled out the lineup with pedal steel guitarist Aaron Alkire, electric guitarist Jeremy Hickman and drummer Mike O'Donnell.

While the band's instrumentation lends itself to twangy, '40s- and '50s-style country, its songwriting has more contemporary themes, Moore says.

Four of its original songs are available for download at

The cover to the shows at Alex's is $5. Guitarist Justin Wismar will open the show on Friday. Call 541-482-8818 for more information.
