"Shiner Rising Star Series"

They came from Waco, Waxahatchie, and points in the Dallas area, and each of the three bands brought with them fans, talent, and excitement.

Shiner Rising Star’s Round 1 Week 6 saw The Calamity Janes (Waxahachie), Doc Mojoe (Waco), and Jeremy Powers (Dallas) taking turns on the Southern Junction (Rockwall) stage. Judges Tip Jones (Overdrive Entertainment), Allan Peck (KHYI), and Amber Ferris (Somebody’s Darling) stayed enthralled with the different performances, commenting on their various choices of cover songs and their own talents as songwriters.

Doc Mojoe, hailing from Waco, consisted of more acoustic musicians than electric, and played more Americana, folky songs that C&W or Texas country. Their cover was by The Carpenters, also a surprise selection for the judges.

Their best song, according to the judges later on, was a song about springs under the Gruene Hall dance floor. They remembered to thank Shiner Beer (a sponsor of the contest, Southern Junction, and KHYI.

Peck’s critique came first. He said the “Springs stands out in my ear.” He offered one critique, as hopefully helpful, saying, “I had to bring you down on stage showmanship. Turning around with your back to the audience is a no no, if I paid a cover charge at the door, I wouldn’t want to see your back side.”

Jones’ comments were that he loved the Texas toe-tapper, the mandolin, and the feel of old-school bluegrass bands. On the cover song, “You did a great job.”

Ferris concluded this final critique by saying, “You looked like you were having fun on stage. Good job.”

"Doc Mojoe LIve"

The southern rock band, Doc Mojoe, performs at the Icehouse on Fri. Sept. 12 starting at 9 pm. Even if you haven’t heard of Doc Mojoe, you will recognize the members of the band. They are a fusion of members from the Jackson Edwards Band and the Nate Rodriquez Band. They call their style “Americana”. The band members play dance music that reminds me of the music I listened to in college in the 70’s before these band members were even born. It’s ‘feel good’, ‘wanna enjoy the week-end’ kind of music that puts me in an energetic mood.

The leader of Doc Mojoe is Jackson Edwards who sings, plays guitar and blues harp (harmonica). Lead guitar and singer is Dustin Clifford. Dan Garrett plays bass and sings. Playing all kinds of percussion including the tambourine is Matt Shroyer.
