Press and Emails. BLUES HIGHWAY ....... Thanks to everyone who made it to the club on Saturday evening for the Hoochie Coochie Band double set. It was a pleasure to see audience and band alike enjoying themselves to the extent where we had people on the floor bopping. If I had to pick out a highlight it would be their rendition of the classic The Hoochie Coochie Man. I didn't think it was possible to better the original but for my money they did. The guys remarked at the end of the first set that it was a treat to play for such a knowledgeable and appreciative audience, pat yourselves on the back. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Pembrokes Western Telegraph --Mojo Morgan's Hoochie Coochie Band -- Fishguard Arms, Haverfordwest. It is often overlooked that pubs as music venues are the live blood and thriving bedrock of the local music community.On arriving at Fishgurd Arms to sample some Cleddau Delta blues, The Hoochie Coochie Band,in unplugged mode,struk up with Dog On Heat,the first of many self-penned numbers by charismatic frontman Mojo Morgan. The band's first set was mellow with reflective blues,sometimes tentative,sometimes strident,as the songs took off on their own journeys-but one of them was called Train Girl after all.Even the front man was different in this unplugged setting-he was seated,playing guitar,his signature shades were nowhere to be seen and his trademark ponytail had been replaced by a cropped more sprightly looking coiffure.But normal Hoochie Coochie service was soon resumed as lead guitarist Vince informed us,in his introduction to the song they are named after,that there is a long lineage of hoochie coochie men from Muddy Waters and Howlin'Wolf to Pembrokeshire's Mojo Morgan. With guitar and stool put aside and shades finally donned,the magnetic persona was firmly in place for there second set,which saw the band on firmer and more familiar territory,with a carbon copy of The Hoochie Coochie's main set,but played acoustically. Mojo's voice hits the spot when he howls and growls tantalisingly as on his timeless rendition of Help Me,as well as other steaming classics such as Parchment Farm,St James Infirmary and Stormy Monday. And all the while aided and abetted by the rest of the Hoochie Coochie's. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- John from Tenby. When the music started you guys just blew me away! so much energy!...definitely best band in South West Wales!"The band went on stage at 9.30pm did an acoustic set then fueled with passion and energy proceeded to 'rock the joint' with vibes that warrant 9.9 on the richter scale. All songs in their first set were locked together without pause, Only after one of their own numbers " Black Woman Blues " did the band take a three minute break while the audience roared with applause as they caught their breath. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mojo Morgan's Hoochie Coochie Band. Look out for our appearance in early 2006 on Granada Television's "Life Roulette" - we somehow managed to become the subject of a dodgy reality television swap program due to be aired at peak time on ITV in January, friends of ours Craig & Kiran were traded in for a billionaire and his missus, -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE COOL HOOCHIE COOCHIE MAN ............................. All I can say is that this is an exceptional band and they give it everything from start to finish with a brilliant mix of music. I am not sure if it was 3 or 4 encores now, but they were top notch right up to the time that they pulled the plugs and said goodnight. Great show boys..........Fishguard Arms,Haverfordwest. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NIK WINTERTON, EX BASS PLAYER WITH THE HOOCHIE COOCHIE BAND. thought for the day-how about putting that good black voice of yours onto some Robert Johnson or Willie Dixon numbers...? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Hoochie Coochie Band are a regular feature on Pembrokeshires pub circuit, have supported R & B legends, Dr. Feelgood and traded blows with Pembrokeshires Justice Done in the Face-Off at the Queens Hal, Narberth.THE BLUES are coming to Tenbys De Valence.
