ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bio / The MoFo Party Band Story

Since 1989 The MoFo Party Band has been spreading the blues along Central California’s Highwy 99 via their home of Fresno. Influenced by West Coast and old-school Chicago Blues, The MoFo Party Band provides a sound and show that is all about having a good time. “People tell us they like us because it always looks like we are having fun,” says lead guitarist Bill Clifton, “that’s because we are and we love what we do.”

With four records on the shelf, The MoFo Party Band is currently working on their fifth release, due out in early 2009. Consistently playing over 100 shows a year for more than a decade positions The MoFo Party Band to take their show across North America & Europe. Internet and specialty radio servicing, along with continued in-store promotional stops are being scheduled in conjunction with their live performances.

The MoFo Party Band is led by the Clifton brothers Bill & John. The current line up includes: Bill Clifton on lead guitar, John Clifton on lead vocals and harp, Jake Finney on upright bass and Sky Garcia on drums. Both regional and international press, in addition to niche print publications, have covered the Mofo Party Band over the years. “Invigorating, straight forward, honest stuff!” says Ken Smith, Red Lick Records, Wales, UK.

The MoFo Party Band has played many festivals such as the Sonora Blues Festival, the San Francisco Blues Festival. The Peer Belgian Rhythm & Blues Festival, and an appearance on the B.B. King Blues Festival tour. From playing as the backup band for late Chicago blues legend Luther Tucker, to sharing the stage with blues legends Bo Diddley, Robert Cray, Charlie Musselwhite, Los Lobos, Otis Rush, Little Charlie and the Night Cats, Tommy Castro and others, The MoFo Party Band is a well respected and hard working band on the West Coast blues scene.

The MoFo Party Band is scheduling performance dates across North America & Europe to bring their brand of blues to new audiences.

The MoFo Party Band’s high-energy show will keep blues fans dancing all night long. “These guys are crowd pleasers, and they go the extra mile no matter if it’s a big festival or small club audience!”

Can't Get Enough!
The MoFo Party band is what the blues is all about. These guys have been playin' for years and always get it right. If you haven't seen them live, you're missing out. This record gives only a small piece of the emotion and energy delivered in their live show. If you like this record, then check out their other releases via their website. Always a great listen and never a bad time...keeping on playin' MoFo!!

Jive-groovin blues
I have this CD and let me say that the MOFO Party Band are some bad-ass MoFo's. Some of the best Blues, Rockabilly/Honkytonk inspired music I've heard- and no, it's not just because I'm from Fresno (but that makes me love these guys especially more). If you can't see these guys live, then buying the CD is the next best thing. Buy it! Without a doubt, you will enjoy it!

Warren

Great music!
These guys rock! I got to see them at Lou's Blues on Pier 47 and they were amazing! This album is great!

Dave from Tennessee

Sammysins

Totally awesome!
This cd makes me feel like I'm in the Big Easy, dancin', drinkin' and lovin' life! This band is all blues, all rock and all attitude!

Michael "Machine Gun" Thompson


Brothers John & Bill Clifton have done it again. This CD cuts like a razor sharp knife through hot butter. The MOFO PARTY BAND perform with such raw intensity that you feel it from your head down to your toes. This CD is a true classic from the hardest working and toughest band on the west coast. Buy this CD if you know what’s good for you!
