Local Women Singers bringing their bands together for a night of amazing music. Mojomama, Kerry Pastine and the crime scene and The Cass Clayton band A night of Funky Blues Rock, Rockabilly, and Roots Rock.
Mojomama combines Old School Rhythm and Blues and Funk influences from Aretha Franklin to Susan Tedeschi to Steely Dan leaving you with a new yet familiar sound. They were semi Finalists at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis for 2018 and 2019 representing the Colorado Blues Society.
In 2015 Mojomama won best self-produced Cd and favourite female vocalist for 2015 and 2018 from the Colorado Blues Society. Mojomama Wins Best Band from Colorado Blues Society Members Choice Awards February 2019. The band behind Jessica's voice is tight and explosive with their tight rhythms and face-melting guitar work. Mojomama from Longmont Colorado is a band that you don't want to miss. Guitarist Bob Murnahan will blow your mind with his amazing solos and just a bottomless pit of musical ideas. Jessica Rogalski sings from her soul all night long. She has a beautiful and powerful voice mixing Tedeschi with Donna Summer. Jessica has earned some stage credit singing with Susan Tedeschi at 2009 Snowy Range Music Festival and with Janiva Magness at Otis Taylor's Trance Blues Festival 2014 Etown Hall and recently at The Brighton Armory in Dec of 2019. Paul Rogalski throws down some wicked bass lines and tasty melodic solos with some strong slappin' of da' bass. Taylor Edwards on the drumkit bringing all his different influences to the funky jams of the band. This band will twist through funk/R&B/Jazz swing /Latin jams and know how to take you on their journey. Every Mojomama performance excites the crowd with their hip-shaking grooves and undeniable melodies filling your head and making you want more.
Kerry Pastine has spent her entire life bringing her own brand of classic sounds, styles and fashion to her songwriting and live performances. From the big band jump blues of The Informants, to the edgy rockabilly blues of the first two Crime Scene records Let's Do This Thing and Bad Magic Baby, Kerry has redefined what vintage music means in the new millennium. Through years of experience, Kerry found a unique voice and with that evolution, she challenged herself to write and record an album that captures the essence of evolution, change and growth, from both within and without.
That record is called City of Love and it is the result of Kerry observing the current state of the world, where she is in her personal journey and surrounding herself with the musicians that share her sense of adventure and lust for life…
The Cass Clayton Band
The Cass Clayton Band has become known across the region for its tight chemistry and high-energy stage presence, a reputation that has landed them on some of the best stages, shows, festivals and radio shows regionally and beyond. Clayton’s songwriting, lyrically and musically, has grown by leaps and bounds in a relatively short span. Her new album, PLAY NICE, pulls together disparate influences but ties it all up in a framework that would seem as at home in Muscle Shoals or on Beale Street as it would on Michigan Avenue or Sunset Boulevard – and that’s no accident. Known for their non-denominational approach to music and genre, CCB blends rock, R&B, funk, blues and soul into their own contemporary sound.
