On tour in support of their newest album, the Kansas roots band Moreland & Arbuckle made a stop in Philadelphia, packing in a large crowd at World Cafe Live on this rainy afternoon. The bluesy band’s new album, Promised Land Or Bust, officially dropped today.
These rockers started off their set with “Mean and Evil”; lead vocalist, Dustin Arbuckle, got into the groove starting from the first note that came out of his harmonica. He was joined by guitarist Aaron Moreland, and the two fed off of each other’s and the crowd’s energy throughout their set as they both rocked out on stage. Continue reading →

Roots rockers Moreland & Arbuckle are playing WXPN’s Free At Noon this Friday, August 2nd. They just released a new album, 7 Cities, on Telarc Records. Guitarist Aaron Moreland, singer/harmonica player Dustin Arbuckle, and new drummer Kendall Newby have crafted one of the best blues influenced rock records of the year. 7 Cities is a concept album, and tells the story of Spanish explorer Coronado and his search for the fabled Seven Cities of Gold. Moreland & Arbuckle started as an acoustic duo in Wichita, Kansas in 2001 and evolved into an electric power trio over the years blending rural Mississippi Hill Country blues, R&B, and rock. Get ready to boogie – if blues rock is your bag (and you dig ZZ Top, the Black Keys and Gary Clark, Jr.) you don’t want to miss this show. RSVP here. Below, watch the video for “Modern Boy from 7 Cities” from 7 Cities.
