Such a fun and unique sound! Hobo train-track clickitty clack bringing the 1930's back! - from past president of the board (2011 - 2102) of the Boulder International Fringe Festival, Roger Wolsey's post on Facebook after experiencing one of our shows
It was exciting to learn that at the Colorado Blues Society's IBC Competition, the Mojo Medicine Show tied for first place in the Solo/Duo division even if we lost in the tie breaking judges’ straw poll. We call that second place in a state competition that featured so many fine blues acts, and we are making plans to do even better next year!
Mojo Medicine Show toured the western slopes of
Colorado in the summer of 1976. This ragged
and hairy troupe of musicians, Gypsy fortune tellers
and belly dancers performed their way into the
hearts of many a mountain town. It is in this
tradition of Colorado’s own home grown, psychedelic,
back porch blues that the Mojo Medicine founder, Mad
Dog Friedman, decided to create a unique blues duo
that captures the spirit of those amazing
times. This new incarnation of the Mojo Medicine Show features Mad Dog Friedman
on harp, vocals and Theremin and Dan Crecco on washboard, percussion and iPad synth. The modern Mojo Medicine Show puts down the
real deal, hippy trippy blues seldom heard in this day and
age. From their contemporary, simple, heartfelt, rural-rooted blues to their vintage, analog,
improvisational, experimental, aleatory 'lectronica, the Mojo Medicine Show offers a unique alternative to today's throwback, retro-folk and refracted root music scene.
Fat Tuesday Party, March 4, 7:00 -11:00 pm
This going to be some real real fun. We plan to take the show places we have never been and give away a lot of beads!
It is back to where it all began! Our very first "indoor" gig was at Bittersweet in July of 2012. There is still time to be part of Mojo's history! Come let us know about what you think about the songs we are recording for our first studio recording, No Strings Attached, and get a free download card for all the songs we have finished so far!
