I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

I'm a King Bee - Maxwell Mojo Blues Band

Who is Maxwell Mojo? Where did this guy come from? What’s going on here? Good questions. And questions which deserve answers. But we can’t give them all to you right now. You have to wait for the webisodes, the James Cameron directed feature film, and the “Behind the Music” episodes which have not been written. Yet. Honestly, Maxwell Mojo is a bit enigmatic. A puzzle. Within a brain teaser. Within another puzzle. Inside a jar. With a lock. OK – you get the picture. But really, we’ll give you as much information as we can now without government clearance. First of all, it is true. Maxwell Mojo is a blues band just like any other. OK – we’re not like many of the other blues bands. You will not hear three hours of painfully similar shuffles or 24 minute long slow blues. Nor will you hear Led Zeppelin tunes passed off as blues. What you will hear, however, is a virtual history of modern blues spanning from jazz/jump blues all the way to the high-energy electric blues of today and everything in between. You see, Maxwell Mojo was not built with puzzle pieces who had the same history and influences. Rather, Max Mojo (as we like to call them) was formed from 6 multi-instrumental musicians of all different backgrounds but a similar love for the blues. A Max Mojo show is not your typical blues show. It’s kinda like a circus, but without the smell of large animals. And no clowns. DEFINITELY no clowns. Well, maybe it isn’t a circus. Perhaps more like an open market festival. But WHO are the musicians? Also a good question. We got approval from the powers that be to release that information. Max Mojo is: Scott Evans – Guitar, Vocals, some keys, and pretty much anything that makes noise Tony “Mississippi Sax” Medina – Harmonica, Vocals, Congas/Percussion Nikolas Scott – Guitar, Vocals, Harmonica, Trumpet, and a whole bunch of other instruments. Edwin “Eddie V” Velazquez – Keys, Trombone, Vocals, and a whole bunch of other instruments. Some we can’t even spell. Ron “Spindaddy” Regnas – Bass, Vocals, and the happiest man alive. Honestly, we think he is. Jim Jaltuch – Drums, percussion “To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson If you support live Blues acts, up and coming Blues talents and want to learn more about Blues news and Fathers of the Blues, ”LIKE” ---Bman’s Blues Report--- Facebook Page!
