MOJO FILTER’s roots date back to the spring of 2006. Bassist
and founding member Chris Johnson began a quest to find like-
minded Beatle-loving musicians. After receiving several jam
sessions, Chris narrowed down the line-up and a band was
formed. The band played extensively in the Dallas and Ft. Worth
area for the next 3 years, under a different name as a Beatles
In the summer of 2009, the band was in need of a lead guitarist.
Christopher, trained in jazz, classical and flamenco styles of guitar, was a natural fit to handle the unique guitar playing style of George Harrison.
To complete the line up, Wade Brantley became the drummer for
MOJO FILTER in December of 2009. Wade was the perfect fit to fill the Ringo position. With his 24 years behind the kit, Wade is a dead ringer for Ringo’s drumming styles and vocal ranges.
Once the line up was complete, the band decided to change their
name to MOJO FILTER, a reference from the Beatles classic
song, Come Together. It was also at this time, that the decision
was to change the direction of the band and perform a full tribute
show, which includes the familiar outfits that the Beatles wore
during their live performance years, as well as replicating the
music note for note, using period correct instruments, including
Rickenbacker and Gretsch guitars, Hofner basses, Ludwig
Drums and Vox amplifiers.
