SAFE AT ANCHOR IN THE 1960's
The MOJO NAVIGATORS are a 60's psychedelic jam band headquartered in the mountains of Santa Cruz. Over the years, Santa Cruz has harbored numerous refugees from reality, foremost of which are The MOJO NAVIGATORS, who derive their name from The Mojo Navigator, a rock fanzine published in San Francisco by Greg Shaw in 1966.
With Page Brownton on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Al Astrella on lead guitar, Doug Semler on bass, and Seth Getlin on drums,The MOJO NAVIGATORS deliver an enthusiastic guitar-driven 60's style electric psychedelic rock and roll. Their repertoire includes songs recorded by The Grateful Dead, The Jefferson Airplane, The Byrds, The Quicksilver Messenger Service, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan. The music of The MOJO NAVIGATORS is a unique blending of visionary psychedelic lyricism with the imagery and spirit of traditional Americana, country blues, and old-time Celtic roots music.
FOUNDED ON AND CONTINUING THE TRADITION OF PSYCHEDELIC SAN FRANCISCO ROCK
The MOJO NAVIGATORS feature singer-songwriter Page Brownton, sixties proto-folkie and garage band pioneer. A native of the San Francisco Bay area and a veteran of the 1960's folk music revival, Page witnessed and participated in the transition from traditional ethnic music, delta blues, and old-time country music to electrified rock and roll. In 1967 he sang with San Jose's premier psychedelic garage band, The Warriors of the Rainbow. His repertoire draws upon the same musical roots as Jerry Garcia, Jorma Kaukonen, Paul Kantner, and David Nelson, with whom he also shared the stage at folk festivals and clubs.
"We do not re-create the music of the sixties; we ARE the music of the sixties!"
The MOJO NAVIGATORS have performed at Henfling's Tavern, Palookaville, The Blue Rock Shoot, The Redwood Mountain Fair, the Good Old Fashioned Bluegrass Festival, The Loch Lomond Celtic Gathering, Rosie McCann's, Squid Row, the Bistro Boulder Creek, the Boulder Creek Art and Wine Festival, the Merry Prankster, The Blarney Stone, Somar Gallery, the Santa Cruz County Fair, Rainbow's End, Abouche, The Whale City Bakery Bar & Grill, and the Brookdale Lodge.
