"These guys are crowd pleasers and they always go the extra mile to deliver, whether it's a big festival or small club audience!" – Mark Hummel, Promoter of "Harmonica Blowout Tour".
The MoFo Party Band is a real blues band playing the Music influenced by their surroundings and life experiences growing up in California's Central Valley. The band came into being when former well drilling brothers John and Bill Clifton decided to hang up their shovels and leave the hard labor behind to pursue their mutual love of music.
"Drilling wells is a cold, thankless and dangerous job" says John Clifton (singer and harmonica player). The experience, however, helped to shape the blue collar style they play. True Americana Blues that can only come from living life real and playing for keeps.
