The Vocals
A huge part of the equation, the soulful lead vocals of Maurice White and the sultry tenor of Philip Bailey, are highlighted thru-out every song with unbelievable reproductions by Wilson Drummer and Eric Rapier Bryant. Beautiful full lush harmonies are remarkably duplicated by Shining Star, Earth Wind & Fire Tribute, if you close your eyes you will swear the original Earth Wind & Fire singers are on stage.

MOJO RISIN - A TRIBUTE TO THE DOORS

Mojo Risin - a tribute to The DoorsUnlike other Doors tribute bands across the country, Mojo Risin are Doors purists and use only vintage equipment on stage to capture that unique Doors sound. they only use authentic gear and employ no digital processing, synthesizers, or samples to achieve this end. And unlike other Doors tribute bands, they appear in full costume and their show makes full use of lighting and theatrics to complete the illusion. However, what really sets them apart from the other bands is that they re-create a Doors concert as it may have looked and sounded live in 1969, rather than just imitate The Doors as they sounded in the studio.
