The Dr. Mojo Band draw inspiration from groove-oriented music from 60s soul, to 70s R&B, funk and Americana, to modern R&B and blues. While Dr. Mojo play songs from all eras, the music they create is always unmistakably their own, with a groove you can't ignore and an improvisational style that feeds off the energy of the audience. When this band takes off and the audience go with them their evident musicianship and chemistry, and the sheer fun they have making music together, energize the whole room.
On lead vocals is Nicole Penny, a young singer with an improvisational style and the vocal chops to easily tackle classic R&B numbers. Bay area stalwart Gerry Della Bona (recording with Huey Lewis, touring supporting Steppenwolf) mixes Hammond B3 organ and electric piano for some cool textures and palettes. Bassist Pierre Allard has extensive recording and producing experience from his native Montreal to Los Angeles, including anchoring chart-topping songs. Pierre has played a wide range of material from jazz to rock, but his heart is in groove-oriented music, "the phatter the better". Richard Southwick on guitar sometimes shows his roots in jazz horn playing in his improvisations, so meshes well with the other band members' style, and Dominic Haigh, who has sat in the drum seat for Dr. Mojo for 11 years and over 300 shows, keeps the train on the tracks and driving hard.
