Mojo Morgan was born in Coventry, in 1952. As a young man his chosen instrument was to be the bass guitar. He put together the popular 80s Coventry ska band EMF.
EMF supported the likes of The Specials, Bad Manners, The Beat, and the Bodysnatchers.
After 2½ years I had itchy feet to get back to my blues roots and I formed a band with John Alderson called the Travelling Riverside Blues Band, and my bass playing took on a different meaning when playing with such a great musician as John." The Travelling Riverside Blues Band was formed in 1980 by Mojo and blues guitarist extraordinaire John Alderson. They played their blues heavy, and built up a huge reputation on the circuit. "We played all the universities around Britain, supporting Paul Jones Blues Band, Dr Feelgood, Nine Below Zero. Tony Mcphee's Band, Chicken Shack, and many more," said Mojo. "I also played in a rock 'n' roll band called Sammy Earthquake and the Volcanoes with Roddy Byers from The Specials, and a good time was had by all."
By 1996 Mojo had moved to Pembrokeshire, and formed Mojo Morgan's Hoochie Coochie Band in the year 2000. From then on Mojo took his love for blues music to another level.

and listen to just how well Mojo and the boys have nailed it.
Band members have come and gone, and today's line-up looks like this: Mojo Morgan, vocals;/ Fingers, guitar and vocals; / Boom, bass and vocals; / Master Beater, drums and vocals.
The band now boast a more rocky blues sound, and make sure that every one of their audiences goes home happy in the knowledge that the band gave 100 per cent.
I always found joy in singing. It gives me inner peace and takes me to another place. Hard to compare with any other feeling."
