This guys play blues like no one else. Their music is tough like good old cigar and tastes like a sip of Kentucky's bourbon.
Mojo Shuffle's appearance is one of the most important events on Kazan City music scene. Band was founded in the beginning of 2016 by two guys with cigarbox guitar and blues harp. First time Mojo Shuffle played only covers for early delta-blues singer such as Big Bill Broonzy, Skip James & Robert Johnson. By autumn 2016 two more guys joined the band: bass guitar and percussion (percussion plays by a suitcase, yes usual old suitcase). Track list was updated with blues standards like Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and other classic blues musicians, band started to write their own songs.
Nowadays Mojo Shuffle grows its popularity really fast and regularly plays concerts outside home region, which is Kazan, TA. In September 2017 guys started to make material for their first studio album.
