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. We specialize in original, psychedelic, back porch blues blending the jug juice of 1920's juke with the electric kool-aid jams of the 1960's.

Mojo Medicine Show

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 Mojo 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.
