Five Guys Named Moe uses the music of Louis Jordan and other r&b/blues/jazz artists from the 1940s-1950s. Jordan, known as "The King of the Jukebox," was one of music's first crossover artists, topping both the R&B and mainstream pop charts numerous times throughout his career. Jordan is also known for pioneering "jump blues," a mix of jazz, blues and boogie-woogie music.
