Since they first hit the Rock scene with the release of their monumental 1967 album Days Of Future Passed, The Moody Blues have continued to produce music that bridges the gap between Classical and Pop-Rock genres without ever wavering in their integrity and commitment.  Featuring the altruistic inflections of guitarist/vocalist Justin Hayward, bassist/vocalist John Lodge and drummer Graeme Edge, The Moody Blues’ sound has held its ground with exquisite harmonies over and over again, in a genre of music that is ever-changing.  Since their formation in England, The Moody Blues have created music time and time again that offers Rock music a depth that is unprecedented and inspiring.   The Moody Blues have sold in excess of 70 million albums worldwide and have been awarded an astonishing 14 platinum and gold discs.  Their incredible roster of hits include:  “Nights In White Satin,” “Ride My See-Saw,” “The Story In Your Eyes,” “Isn’t Life Strange,” “Question,” “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band),” “Your Wildest Dreams” and “I Know You’re Out There Somewhere,” to name a few.
