About This Show

Big Easy Entertainment Award winning director/musical director Brandt Blocker and choreographer Jauné Buisson present Five Guys Named Moe, featuring an all-star African-American cast as “those crooning cavaliers, those soulful seraphs of song, those five guys named Moe!”

The story centers on our hero Nomax, played by Darrin Nelson. His woman left him, he’s broke, and it’s almost five o’clock in the morning. But don’t worry! Out of his ’30s-style radio pop five guys named Moe:

Leo Jones as the straight-laced No Moe
Troy Domino as the authoritative Big Moe
Roscoe Reddix, Jr. as the hungry Eat Moe
Rendell DeBose as the bespectacled and magnetic Four-Eyed Moe
Terry Tywon Morgan as the chubby-chasing Little Moe

These singin’ and swingin’ cats of the Funky Butt Club cajole, wheedle, comfort and jazz Nomax with the whimsical hit songs of Louis Jordan, one of the most beloved songwriting talents of the twentieth century. Songs include “Caldonia”, “Is You Is Or Is You Ain’t My Baby”, “Choo Choo Ch’Boogie”, “Let The Good Times Roll”, “Don’t Let The Sun Catch You Cryin'”, and, of course, the title song.
