MOJO RISING Lifting local music to new heights

In their enduring support for local, live music, Mojos Bar are excited to host heat #1 of their new band competition Mojo Rising tonight, WednesdaySeptember 20. 

With tonight’s first heat featuring local sounds from indie rock bands J.F.K (pictured), JOYS and Sealamb, and folk singer-songwriters Mark Turner and Fox Scully, the competition hopes to launch these WA artists into a network of valuable contacts and industry guidance which organisers deem equally favourable to a cash prize for growing artists.

The winning band will receive a recording and mastering package through Blackbird Sound Studio with Dave Parkin, and Forensic Audio with Simon Struthers. Second prize winners will walk out with a 6 month Cool Perth Nights booking prioritisation, as well as a photoshoot with one of Perth’s best music photographers.

Above all, the Mojo Rising competition will allow artists the chance create their own network of contacts with like-minded artists and industry contacts, through the sudden visibility of the heats.

Heat #2 is set to rock Mojos with more local talent next Wednesday, September 27, featuring the likes of Dariia, Wooly Mammoth, Timbo Roberts, Kat Wilson Trio and Steve Hensby Band.

Mojo Rising kicks off tonight, Wednesday, September 20. Heats will run every Wednesday at Mojos Bar throughout Spring, with the Grand final being held Saturday, December 2. Doors open at 8pm, entry $5.
