MoChester is a 4-piece rock-reggae driven band from Rochester, NY. The band's name is actually a fusion of the city it started in and Motown, one of its original influences. While the Motown greats provided early inspiration for the group, the band's current sound has a mainstream flair that has been compared to a blend of O.A.R. and Incubus, with a west coast swagger reminiscent of The Dirty Heads and Sublime. 


The members of MoChester consists of Brandon Sheffer on lead vocals and guitar, Jonathan Sheffer on keys, guitar and backup vocals, Ben Overmyer on bass guitar, and Jimmy Grillo on drums. MoChester has released 3 studio albums, "Stop and Go", "Lost and Found", and  "More Than It Seems". 


The band is currently in the process of dropping a number of singles, starting with "Cool Water" (October 2021).   The band's music shows a progression over time from a more acoustic singer-songwriter based approach, to a groove-worthy rock-reggae vibe.  In addition to their work in the studio, other highlights for the band include sharing the stage with national touring artists such as Barenaked Ladies, Passafire, Ballyhoo!, Badfish, Tower of Power, and the Ryan Montbleau Band.
