Mojo Stew
Mojo Stew
Bluesy, Ultra Funky, rock powerhouse, MOJO STEW shared the stage with major acts throughout the Midwest and eventually landed a spot on Natalie Cole’s nationally syndicated TV program, “The Big Break,” along with other TV appearances. Mojo Stew released several cassettes and CD’s of original compositions, which led to interest from Alligator Records, A&M and Buena Vista. After five wonderful years of performing, the band went their separate ways, but remained friends and reunite periodically on stage to share their love of music.

Monica Morris (vocals/songwriter), John Maier (drums), Michael Hill (bass), Bill Porter (guitar/vocals/songwriter), Garard Montague (sax/flute/vocals) and Don Scheurich (audio engineer) toured from 1986-1991 on major concert stages with International artists like Koko Taylor, Johnny Winter, Mitch Ryder, Lonnie Brooks, Dave Mason, Uriah Heep and many more. That could not have been possible without excellent management support from Juleene Hrasch and Denny DeBourbon. Mojo Stew says, “ROCK STEADY friends!”
