21 Jul Mojo
The Mojo sound is centered around the voice, guitar and songwriting of Michael Meadows, and combines rock & reggae & ska for the upbeat original sound. With Maggie King on keyboards, John Keller and Justin Hess round out the rhythm section on bass and drums respectively and Justin contributes backing vocals. Dr. Dave Noe occasionally provides the trombone. Each member has had experience performing and recording around the country (Mr. Meadows has also performed internationally). Good tunes and great musicianship have made this band regulars in the Paonia and North Fork Valley music scene on the Western Slope of Colorado. The debut EP released in 2014 includes Longtime, The Hills, Come On and Keep The Faith. Watch for the follow up EP in 2017 with songs like Crack of Noon Club, Ska Mon, The Beach, The Ska is the Limit and She’s Got the Mojo. The band has been proud to perform at the 2009, 2010 and 2011 Gears & Beers Festival in Paonia and the Mountain Harvest Festival and Black Eyed Pea Jubilee, both in Paonia (several years running) and the Main in Motion Streetfair in Montrose, CO (also several years running), as well as beer drinking establishments from Ouray to Palisade to Carbondale, CO. The mojo duo is Michael and Maggie performing the upbeat mojo songs with a rhythm box in an intimate efficient unit.
