Originally formed in 2007 as The Great Oglee Moglee Blues Band, by founding members Jay Ogle (Guitar/Vocals) and Gary Gehman (Bass/Vocals). The band started as a straight up blues band with a rock edge. After some personnel changes, they welcomed Joel Muschott (Drums) into the band and dubbed him with the nickname Youngin' McNasty. Joel's drumming style brought a new funk element to the band which took in a new direction in their song writing.
Throughout their collective careers they have shared the stage with luminaries such as Robin Trower, Pat Travers, Ronnie Montrose,
Tommy Johnston, Foghat, UFO, Edgar Winter, Greg Allman, Huey Lewis & The News, Dave Mason, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Leon Russell, Leslie West & Mountain. As Great Oglee Moglee, they have appeared with music legends such as Lydia Pense & Cold Blood, Smash Mouth, Ronnie Montrose, Tommy Tutone, and Zakiya Hooker (daughter of blues legend John Lee Hooker).
In 2010, Great Oglee Moglee was nominated by the Modesto Area Music Association as Best Americana Band. The awards (known as the MAMA awards) are voted on by the fans and when the votes were all counted, Great Oglee Moglee walked out with their first music award. Their debut CD, Wrong Side Of The Tracks" is scheduled for release in January 2014.
