Mosby opened his own nightclub, the Apex, in 1928, and his band appeared in the films Thunderbolt and King Vidor's Hallelujah the next year. Late in 1929 a police raid shut the club down, but he reopened after an acquittal soon after. He opened another club in San Francisco at the end of 1930. He went bankrupt in 1931, and moved to San Francisco. Over the course of the 1930s he opened several clubs, not all of them successful, along the California coastline; musicians who appeared in his bands included Lawrence Brown, Marshal Royal, Wilbert Baranco, , and Buck Clayton. His successful Club Alabam featured Harlan Leonard in 1943, Roy Milton in 1944, and Johnny Otis in 1945, all in succession. He was jailed for tax evasion from 1947 to 1949 and lost control of his clubs; after serving his time, he reopened some of them and then permanently moved to San Francisco.
