Reggie "Big Shmoove" Maddox began playing bass eight years ago as a soulful hobby. His greatest musical influences are influenced by the band Earth, Wind and Fire, Larry Graham, Bob Marley and Steely Dan. However, one needs only to listen to realize that Uncle Reg, like most talented and well-rounded musicians, has a staunch appreciation for a multitude of artists. He enjoys many different music genres. Everything from soul and country to rock, R&B and hip-hop. Even though he is a relative newcomer to the bass, he has a lifetime full of love for live music that fuels his playing and he is looking forward to changing the game with Area-301 as they introduce the world to their own unique style of music.
