The Mojo Medicine Show is a unique blues duo
with deep roots in the music of Jazz Gillum, Gus Cannon, Washboard Sam, Sonny Terry & Jimmy Rogers. Our music takes you down to Beale Street in Memphis in the 1920's, the porches of rural Louisiana in the 1930's, the Chitlin' Circuit of Mississippi in the 1940's and then up to Chicago in the 1950's.

Mojo Medicine Show toured the western slopes of
Colorado in the summer of 1976. This ragged
and hairy troupe of musicians, Gypsy fortune tellers

tradition of Colorado’s own home grown, psychedelic,

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 Mojo Dan Crecco on washboard, percussion and iPad synth. The modern Mojo Medicine Show puts down the

improvisational, experimental, aleatory 'lectronica, the Mojo Medicine Show offers a unique alternative to today's throwback, retro-folk and refracted root music scene.
