White Boy James & Mighty Mojo Prophets

WHITE BOY JAMES

Something amazing happens the moment you witness a White Boy James show. You’ll either tap your toes maniacally, dance until the soles burn off your shoes - or both.

Whiteboy James and the Blues Express is a detonative force not to be reckoned with. The band has re-established themselves as the legendary band that they were during the Southern California blues explosion of the 80’s and 90’s. Whiteboy James has a mesmerizing, driving and sonic stage presence. Combine that with three gifted, well-seasoned musicians and chances are, chairs at one of their shows just won’t be necessary.

James' musical influences changed radically when he began listening to his uncle’s Deep South Rhythm and Blues and Country vinyl. Although "Whiteboy" found it difficult to fit into the Southern California "Beach Boy" culture his heart, soul and ears were dialed into the likes of Cab Calloway, Louis Jordan, Sam "Lightning" Hopkins, & Big Joe Turner.

By the mid 1980s, also known as the peak of the Southern Californian blues explosion, blues bands were forming everywhere — from garages and backyard parties to all night blues jams in various beer-soaked nightclubs. "Whiteboy" James became quite the buzz across blues stages and dance floors across the southland. People were talking about this entertaining “jump and jive” madman who, not unlike his boyhood hero Cab Calloway, strutted the stage leading a top blues band and dressed in a trench coat - as opposed to Cab Calloway's tux and tails.

Simply put, you don’t listen to Whiteboy” James. You experience it. You feel it. You dance on a lot of broken glass.

Note: Whiteboy James and The Blues Express has 2 songs in the new Blizzard Entertainment hit Game "StarCraft 2"
