The Scoop : Midnight Mojo was formed in October of 1998 as 1 of just a few Blues Bands in Chatham. What stood out was Michael’s age when he recorded this CD @ 15. Only 4 originals appear on the disc but it is chalk full of great songs all around. The band performed on CTV’s Open Mike with Mike Bullard, December 2000.
 The band is mainly a cover band at this point, but this is just the beginning to a long career ahead as several good things continue to happen for them.
