MOJO (Cajun/Zydeco Accordion and Vocals)
Mojo, leader of the Bayou Gypsies, has been performing for over forty years, and from the way he moves, it's obvious that he's still excited about what he's doing. Mojo is the vocalist, accordion player, songwriter, and father figure for MOJO & The Bayou Gypsies. Internationally known for his work, Mojo has performed across America and Canada, and is a truly charismatic performer.

Mojo is also the man who, in collaboration with Frottoir maker, Tee Don Landry, got the Frottoir -- the Zydeco rubboard -- inducted into the Smithsonian Institution Museum of North American History Folk Music collection!

MOJO's work to benefit children is legendary. As a Touring Performance Artist and Artist in Residence, Mojo and his band deliver hundreds of performances each year to inner-city, underprivileged and handicapped children. Their work continues to the college level where they perform, mentor and provide master classes. Mojo's working tools embrace the philosophy that no man stands so tall as when he stoops to help a child.

A portion of proceeds from every MOJO concert is donated to charity. MOJO's performances have benefited Rotary International, Masonic charities, Shriners Hospital for Children, Public Action to Deliver Shelter, Prevent Child Abuse, Habitat for Humanity, Masonic Childrens Home, IL Foundation to Prevent Drug and Alcohol Abuse, Drug Treatment Facilities, Masonic Hospital, American Cancer Society, Urban Gateways Arts Outreach, and many more just in the last 12 months!

Zydeco T Carrier, Frottoir (Rubboard) and Vocals
Zydeco T Carrier is a legend known for her skill as a player of the Frottoir, and as a charming AND exciting performer. A native of Church Point, LA, Zydeco T is a French-speaking Creole from the famous Carrier family. Her brother is Roy Carrier, her nephew is Chubby Carrier. With her million dollar smile, Zydeco T is a pleasure to watch.

Greg Hirte, Fiddle
Mojo's Fiddler, Phil Roach, is an amazing fiddler. Phil is a classically trained violinist playing Classical to Rock! Phil's performances are always a treat.

Tee John Moser, Drums
Tee John Moser, the drummer for Mojo & The Bayou Gypsies, is a lifetime performer known for his fabulous ability. He is young, good looking, and plays like a monster. Tee John is also an in-demand session player who can be heard on literally hundreds of recordings. This young man is clearly an accomplished musician. What else can we say? Just watch him play!

Beau Brian Burke, Bass
Beau Brian Burke, on bass, is a great musician and a great sport. Playing amazing bass all night long, Beau Brian fills out Mojo's powerful rhythm section. Beau Brian is also the object of the Mojo Family's playful teasing, often in French between Mojo and Zydeco T.

Rich "TEX" Stitzel
Rich "TEX" Stitzel is an amazing drummer who has toured with Miranda Lambert, Cathy Richardson, and many more huge artists. We are honored to have Rich with us!
