About Mojo Green
Mojo Green – Heavy Horn Funk and Soul Exploding from the shadows of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Mojo Green has been staking their claim over the last few years as one of the regions premier horn driven funk and soul dance bands.
Originally formed in 2009, over the past several years has transformed into a Funk and Soul, Horn Driven, powerhouse with a sound all their own. Mojo Green is Frank “Fletch” Fletcher on Drums and Trevor Rice on Bass laying down the tight and funky grooves that create the foundation, with Tim Bain on Guitar adding some tasty, deep funk rhythms and blistering lead lines, a Heavy Funk Horn section composed of Kevin Thomas on Bari Sax and Monty Adams on Trumpet and Miss Jenes Carter adding her Soulful and Sexy Lead Vocals.
