The Mojo Blues Band is a blues band from Austria
which was formed in 1977 by guitarist Eric Trauner
and pianist Joachim Palden. The name of the band
is derivated from "mojo", a talisman in the voodoo cult.
The founders of the band played before 1977 in clubs of
Vienna. In 1977 Palden won a boogie woogie contest.
The first prize was a record contract. They decided to
form a band, which they named "Mojo Blues Band".
The line up was: guitar, vocals Erik Trauner,
piano Joachim Palden,bass Matthias Mitsch, and
drums Bobby Sperling. They recorded Aligator Walk in 1991.
