THE FABULOUS PHILADELPHIA MOJO KINGS DANCE BAND / Press

“Reviews of ROCK THE JOINT CD BY THE MOJO KINGS author: john v Awesome record, good old rock n roll, look forward seeing these guys when they come in the area. Sounds bettter then the original well recorded and tight band. Rock The Joint author: Samuel DiPiet Wow - this is Rockin. The tunes are all great and Johnny is in great form. His guitar playing is fresh and totally in a Haley groove. If you like Rock you're gonna like this cd. Lets hear some more from JM. Rock The Joint author: Henry S. Blackiston Great CD! It really rocks! I love the guitar solos on all the tracks, and I love the way the horns amplify the rock\'n\'roll bass melody on \"Shake, Rattle and Roll\". ”

Henry S. Blackiston - CDBaby

“After Bill Haley’s Comets intoned their anthem —“1-2-3 o’clock, 4 o’clock rock”— enough people danced in the aisles of Door Community Auditorium to sell out the next segment in the 2007 summer version of the roots of Rock ‘n Roll. The Comets, founded in the 1950s by the late Haley, put on a solid show of ’50s hits July 25 at DCA. The founding father, Haley, died in 1981, but his legacy is carried on by Al Rappa. Rappa acquired the rights to the name and continues to play the hits that made Haley — and his contemporaries from Elvis to Little Richard — great. Rappa is celebrating his 52nd year touring as many as five nights a week across the U.S. While Rappa is the man with the credentials that make him a grandfather of rock, his sidemen make the music come to life. John Melinchock does more than yeoman work as lead guitarist — looked like he borrowed licks from everybody; Les Paul to Stevie Ray Vaughan. ”
