Dr. Mojo Band: Meet the band

Gerry Della Bona - Hammond B3 organ, electric piano and synthesizer

Out of the frying pan and into the fire, Gerry arrived on the blues-drenched improvisational rock scene of San Francisco in the early 60s. Applying a passionate playing style of the Hammond B3 to the relentless pursuit of the groove quickly lead to a tour with Steppenwolf, session and recording work with Fred Catero and David Rubinson, then still more session work at Music Annex which led to a CD with Huey Lewis.There followed a succession of countless touring and performing bands including 9-piece salsa/latin group, progressive rock, hard rock, blues, real book and fusion jazz. Humorous stories, you bet! Too numerous to mention, but he’ll gladly share a few over a pint of Guinness. Gerry is happy to be a part of the Dr. Mojo vibe, and looks forward to meeting you at the shows.

Gerry would like to acknowledge Peter Miller of CAE Sound for his expert repair and modification of vintage keyboards, and sound reinforcement.

Cat Myers - Singer

A nomad in her own sense, Cat started singing from a young age. After "Living on a prayer" in the military, and becoming a "Jukebox hero" afterwards, she finally decided to pursue singing for more than just fun. Thinking "If I could change the world" she decided to use her talents to inspire young girls to pursue their dreams as she continues to learn better ways to "express herself". On a side note: musical influences are: Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, SWV, En Vogue, Chante Moore, Billy Joel, Eric Clapton, and the likes.

Richard Southwick - Lead Guitar and Tenor Sax

Richard was asked to join his first band when he was 16, and had to sneak into the clubs to play under the suspicious gaze of club owners. Since then, he's played up and down both US coasts, and in England. He's played in a wide variety of blues, R&B and jazz groups, on both guitar and saxophone.

Pierre Allard - Bass guitar

Parachuted to SoCal in 1998 from Montreal, Pierre has been a very active musician, composer and producer on both sides of the border.  A few of his songs enjoyed widespread recognition from the public and the industry – national airplay, top-10 chart topping, song-of-the-year nomination. 

As a bass player, Pierre favors mostly groove-oriented genres such as R&B, funk, soul, blues, jazz, without, of course, forgetting a good rock-shaped concoction. 

Recently relocated to NorCal, Pierre, as a member of Dr. Mojo, hopes to contribute in keeping the dance floors crowded and hot as hell!

Dominic Haigh - Drums

Dominic started playing drums in a company band with some very tolerant work colleagues - those he played with and those in the fallout zone - about twenty-five years ago. Remarkably, they still jam together sometimes ... he has since studied with John Xepoleas and Shaun McGonegal, and played in a number of local bands and various clubs around the Bay area. Dominic also served for 8 years as a Trustee for the Blue Bear School of Music.
