The band was awesome and we would have them to another event in a hot second! They were flexible and attentive to our requests and interacted great with the guests! Hire them y’all and you won’t be disappointed! Truly wonderful!
Bigfoot Mojo was the perfect group for our housewarming party - in fact they made our party unforgettable! They were punctual, professional and flexible - playing both acoustic and 'plugged in' sets. They even stayed a little longer to close out our evening perfectly. We're officially Bigfoot Mojo groupies now!

Upright bassist Belinda Underwood and national mandolin champion Josiah Payne met on the bluegrass scene in Portland, Oregon, as hired hands in other award-winning bands. Musicians in multiple genres since childhood, they both grew up in family bands before moving to Oregon, and were feeling orphaned without their families until they found each other in 2012. After playing together for 3 years as "Josiah and Belinda", they adoped the mascot of the Northwest when they became Bigfoot Mojo.
Songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, they have many creative offerings, including this new incarnation. Josiah and Belinda continue to mesmerize audiences with groove-based melodies and impeccable vocal harmonies (the kind that sound genetically-blended), setting a new standard for original music which defies genre boundaries.
Bigfoot Mojo also plays with other amazing guest musicians to create a trio, quartet or bigger. Lately they have been featuring world-traveling guitarist Pete Kartsounes, when he is home from tour!
Josiah and Belinda also play together in the high-energy bluegrass band "The Wild Wood" and in their Middle Eastern funk band, Al Farasha.
