Once upon a time in a land far away (Lake Tahoe) there was a bass player/singer named Joe. He was happily doing gigs throughout the land and the casino circuit until one evening, in South Lake Tahoe, he found himself on stage playing with “Joe the guitar player” and “Joe the drummer”. It came to pass when the barkeep asked, “What’s the name of the band?” Joe said, “Because we have all Joes in the trio, or mo-joes…we are MOJO!” So MOJO was born and continued playing to and fro across the land bringing merriment to all who watched and listened.
