Only a few months after acoustic guitarist Danny Moore and upright bassist Emily Turner met on a blind date, the couple co-founded The Turner Moore Band, with Moore's roommates — pedal steel guitarist Aaron Alkire and drummer Mikey O'Donnell.

The Jacksonville-based band has since added a fifth member — electric guitarist Jeremy Hickman — and plays original '40s- and '50s-style country with elements of blues and swing, along with some bluegrass-style flat-picking.

The band produced an EP, titled "Country Roots," and will release its first full-length album in the fall.

The Turner Moore Band will perform at 9 p.m. Saturday, June 16, at Alex's Plaza Restaurant, 35 N. Main St., Ashland.
