Finding Fans – Making Friends

Comments: 154

 

It was December 15th, 2018.

Its 7.30pm and Mojo Alice has just finished our 20 minute set in the finals for the Nationwide Battle of The Bands comp. We had traveled over 900kms and poured everything we had into this competition. Beating out 80 other bands, we had made it to the top 15 by convincing our fans to “vote for us” and get us to the finals. Then – just like that – it was all over…we didn’t win…..and how did we feel? RELIEVED!!

Mojo Alice will never take part in a competition again. Not because we didn’t win, not because we didn’t have a good time working together, but because we never want to be put in a situation where “expert judges” determine if you are good enough or not.

But there was plenty of positives that came out of competing. We wrote some fantastic kick ass songs – and people loved them! The word spread that we put on one hell of a live show and our fan base grew.

But the most amazing thing that happened trumps all of these…. and it involves YOU!!

I had just finished loading my gear into the venue when I realized I had forgotten something from my hotel room (which was a 2-minute walk away).

As I exited and crossed the street something caught my eye…

It was one of our “Mojo Alice” printed T-shirts, but I didn’t recognize who was wearing it. I went straight over and introduced myself and quickly realized it was our newest fan “Zane”, who had found us on Facebook and had won a competition we had run to win a free t-shirt.

After 9 hours of traveling and seeing a complete stranger in a Mojo Alice T-shirt was an amazing feeling and one that none of us will ever forget.

There was plenty of bands from Zane’s home town that he could have been there to support, but he was there for us!

And from that point on we all knew one thing – we want to be a band for the fans. Because at the end of the day that is what we are – fans, first and foremost, we are fans of music. That is why we do what we do and that will never change!

And that is also why you taking the time to read this blog is so fricken cool! And it means so much to each of us.

Gone are the days where you get to meet your favorite band at an in-store signing for a cd release. The only way you get to meet your heroes is by purchasing an expensive VIP ticket. And even then, you only get 30 seconds to take a photo with them.

This is where us being a “fans come first” band sets us apart from other bands.

We are creating something very special here, and by we, we mean you and us – The fan and Mojo Alice are taking this special journey together and we can’t do it without you. One does not work without the other and we will never forget it!

We are very happy to have you here, so welcome to our “Mojo Mofo” family.

Please comment below and tell us where you’re from.

We would love to hear from every single one of you!

    What a great song it’s hard to find good music like this, vocalists are a big thing for me to really enjoy bands, so many times they let down the music but you guys don’t have that problem. Thumbs up from a big Aussie fan.

I like all the good music (rock, blues jazz, progressive,…) and I have a lot of LP’s and CD’s bought and collected since when I was a young boy. Music save me and blues was the music of my soul…. like the one you play! By the way the voice of Jem is incredible! Thanks to all of you and keep me informed about your records…
