Started by singer and front man extraordinaire Randy Clarke and ace guitarist Mark Rankin, and later including local heavyweights, drummer Shawn Soucy and bassist Rob Marr, the band’s first year saw them playing at local clubs, pubs, casinos and private events. In 2009, they recorded their first CD, “Devil’s Advocate”, a collection of ten original songs penned by Clarke and Rankin. The CD received massive airplay being featured on blues programs in Canada, the US and Europe, including being the new spotlight artist on Canadian Brent Zwicker's show, ‘At The Crossroads’. The disc was also in regular rotation on the US's Tony Steidler Dennison's podcast, ‘The Roadhouse’, which has a listenership of over 10,000. The CD has also received the highest rating possible from John Vermilyea's famed blues website, Blues Underground Network. Locally, the band had four songs featured in the Vancouver Province’s Playlist section in 2009/2010, which with an online/print weekly readership of 920,000, enabled them to reach an even greater audience.
The end of 2010 saw group co-founder Randy Clarke forced to confront an American marijuana charge and spend two years in a US jail. Upon his return, the band was invigorated, adding new members, B3 player Kenny Boychuck (long time Jerry Doucette collaborator) and sax man JT Platt (So Tight band) to the lineup. Playing their return gig at the newly-opened Columbia in New Westminster, The Mojo Stars sold out the 300-seat-room and treated both old and new fans to freshly written material.
The Mojo Stars are once again back on track and ready to share their tunes with fans of good music, wherever they may be.
