The Mojo Medicine Show is a unique blues duo that blends the jug juice of 1930’s juke band music with the electric kool-aid jams of the 1960’s.  Originally, they 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 hearts of many a mountain town.  It is in this tradition of Colorado’s own home grown, psychedelic, back porch blues duo that captures the spirit of those amazing times.  Featuring Mad Dog Friedman on harp and vocals and Dan Crecco on washboard and percussion the Mojo Medicine Show puts down some real deal hippy blues rarely heard in this day and age.

 Jonathan Montgomery  is the author of The MeTOO Poems Volumes I & II (Baobob Tree Press, 2008). He was born in 1980 and raised in Akron, Ohio. He is a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College and Naropa University and lives in Boulder, Colorado.
