Mojo Juju is 5’3” of wise-crackin’, sass-mouthin’, jump-jivin’ attitude wrapped up in a zoot suit and propped up on a Cuban heel. As well known for her dry humour and sartorial inspiration as she is for her mighty voice and dirty guitar licks. By her side is long-time collaborator Steve ‘Tbone’ Luzuriaga. T-Bone is the slick, suave, mysterious man behind the drums, former ‘Snake Oil Merchant’ and incidentally, Mojo’s brother.
After reuniting as a two-piece in 2013, to support the legendary Tony Joe White on his Australian tour, the sibling duo rediscovered their love of playing music together. Now with a 2 month European tour and a couple of Australian tours under the belt, they have continued to perform in this stripped back and intimate style, moving through subtle, heartfelt country ballads all the way to dark, dirty, sweaty, out of control rock ‘n’ roll. There is plenty of light and shade, as is the M.O. every Mojo Juju project.
“Mojo Juju is a living and breathing dream. Such natural swagger as this does not come often.”
– Au Review.
“Vintage Rock ‘n’ Roll licks, howling jazz and grinding juke-joint blues. Juju does for her genres what
Lanie Lane has done for country music”
– Sydney Morning Herald
“Mojo Juju is one ‘Wow’-worthy performer”
“Her phenomenal backing band is a throwback to the jazz and blues of old style New Orleans. This lady is a true charismatic performer“
