The Mojo Medicine Show

Psychedelic, back porch blues at its best!

The Mojo Medicine Show is a unique blues duo with deep roots in the music of Washboard Sam, Jazz Gillum & Sonny Terry. Our music takes you down south to the porches of rural Louisiana in the 1930's and the Chitlin' Circuit of Mississippi in the 1950's. We specialize in original, psychedelic, back porch blues blending the jug juice of 1930's juke band music with the electric kool-aid jams of the 1960's.

...but the old blues brothers played like pro's played like they meant it played like they had to - from master jazz Sufi poet, Wayne Gilbert's post on Facebook after experiencing one of our shows

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!

The original 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.
