Mojo Jacket is the well loved, lucky leather jacket wear for a great night out, that always brings fun adventures, and it’s the act you call if you want to boogie to awesome tunes all night long, or be blown away, as you relax and listen to the sweet music.
Formerly a larger band, Mojo Jacket is now a solo act by Melbourne born musician Ben Fumi, who sings powerful, passionate vocals, and simultaneously plays tight rhythm, ripping lead lines, and even some fun bass lines on the acoustic Guitar, all whilst playing a live, fully acoustic Farmer Foot Drum-kit with his feet (No loops or lame stomp boxes here, this is a real drum kit, just in a box). Who said men can’t multitask?! Ben delivers every performance with heart-felt passion and soul that you can feel, and keeps you wanting more!
Despite being a one man show, Ben can fill any sized room, from intimate private functions, all the way up to massive stadiums, and with 23 years of professional musical experience on his belt, he always get the crowd going, with his unique and tailored performances!
With a vast repertoire of over 350 songs- including a wide range of covers, and quite a few originals too, Mojo Jacket has grooves to suit a variety of tastes/ functions. Ranging from Classic Rock/Indie/Grunge/Punk/Rock n Roll/Folk/Blues/Soul & Reggae, to Gypsy Jazz and Flamenco inspired originals.
Mojo Jacket (in various formats) has entertained crowds around Australia since 2009, and supported dozens of local and international big names at venues and stadiums round the nation, along the way, including Ringo Starr (The Beatles) and his amazing band of musicians from Toto, Santana, Mr Mister etc, as well as The Animals, Rick Astley, Johnny Clegg, Dave Graney, Boom Crash Opera, The Stranglers, Ross Wilson (Daddy Cool/Mondo Rock) and more!
Touring nearly constantly for the last 5 years (solo for the last year), Ben visits crowds all around Australia, NZ, Japan and parts of Europe regularly, and is happy to explore any other interesting locations you would like to book him in for.
