For the past 59 years, Mojo has been entertaining audiences around the world. He’s a musician, singer, songwriter, and leader of MOJO and the Bayou Gypsies. About 10 years ago, I discovered his music searching for a soundtrack for ten ‘Soldier Story’ mini-documentaries created to engage support for the creation of a National Museum of the US Army. Sponsored by Boeing Corporation, these stories of Army combat veterans were impactful and emotional, and Mojo’s composition ‘Lights on the Bayou’, a beautiful and haunting ballad in the Cajun style, was the perfect fit. This introduced me to Mojo, and to the discovery that there is more to his music ,and more to the man, than his Cajun accordion. This documentary looks into the making of a man who gives something every day, lives life to the fullest, and all his friends are friends for life.
