Mohave Joe


Harmonica, Flute.


We are a five year old band and we usually do two or three shows a month. We are based out of Montclair.. Right now we are a 5 piece band.There are three guys and two girls, our back up vocalist and our bass player..

I want to expand our sound. We would love a keyboard player that can sing. My lead guitarist says I need a harmonica but I want a flute player.

We write all our own music but am not against the occasional Mohavied up cover.

Our niche theme is the Colorado River lifestyle. You might say that we are a light mix of America, Jimmy Buffet and Zac Brown and good old rock n roll.

I and my partner and lead guitarist, Dave founded the band.. We have had unexpected success with our dedication to write our own music. Our "river rock" sound is real.. We now have easily 5 hours plus of our own material..

I am a classically musician, In the 80's I lived with jazz musicians for a few years who beat me up musically but taught me so much about chord structure and reading jazz charts.
As a guitarist I am heavily influenced by Toy Caldwell. On the jazzier side I studied Lee Ritenour and Carlos Santana.
As a writer I lean toward Jimmy Buffet and Zac Brown.

Lionel Ritchie once said to me write from your life, sing from your heart and kiss the hand of the girl in the front row.
