We run our band like a business. It is professionally managed on and offsite and we play with musicians who must meet and maintain qualifications in skill, professionalism, timeliness, and reliability. 

The band is highly danceable and packs seats with its fan base, affectionately known as "Mojithens". Mojithens are comprised of a diverse demographic and range in age from 17 to 72.
