Pacific NW Band, Mojo Overload, Coming to the Hard Rock Cafe

I recently became aware of a new blues act here in the Pacific NW and wanted to share. Mojo Overload is a collaboration of talented, award-winning players from the area, providing a new voice to some old classics, introducing some new originals, and adding their own twist to just about everything in between.

Mojo Overload will be coming to The Hard Rock Cafe in Seattle on March 24th. The show includes sets by the Kim Archer band as well.

Since their debut in 2010, Mojo Overload has had the honor of sharing the stage with some great talent from the Pacific Northwest and beyond, including such greats as The Fabulous Wailers, Randy Hansen, The Jerry Miller Band w/ Lee Oskar, Big Nasty, The Red Hot Blues Sisters, The Stacy Jones Band, Junkyard Jane, The Randy Oxford Band, The Kim Archer Band, Cee Cee James, Blues Redemption, Maia Santell, Dana Lupinacci…and more.

Comprised of Debbie Myre (Lead vocals, who occasionally doubles on bass or keyboards), Don ‘Big D’ Swensen (bass & vocals), Jerry Wainhouse (drums & vocals), Kent beatty (guitar/keyboards & vocals) and David Barker (keyboards/guitar & vocals), Mojo Overload has started down the road to becoming one of the northwest’s great bands. Having the versatility to combine dual keyboards, dual guitars, five vocals, or just about any other combination, the band is moving into areas not usually tackled by traditional 5-piece bands. If you like multi-part vocal harmonies and funky horn sections, and double harmony guitars, you'll definitely like these guys.
