Mo' Kauffey's Bio

Gary (Mo’ Kauffey) Wickizer has been doing his “Folk-n-Blues” roots style of music for more than 30 years, playing his brand of country-blues in the style of “Oh Brother Where Art Thou” since before the guy was lost. Music became the full time career, 22 years after his first professional performance. Mo’ now performs about 150 dates a year from coffeehouses to festivals.

Mo’ has released five independent CDs since 2000 with radio airplay across North America, through Europe, and as far away as Australia. His most recent, titled “Whatcha’ Gonna Do” was released in December 2003.

He’s done TV and live radio both as an interview and a musical guest. Mo’ has shared the stage with Mel Brown, Colin Linden, Ken Hamm, Rock Bottom, Doc MacLean and Shawn Kellerman. He has shared billing with such greats as “Honey Boy” Edwards, John Mayall, Bill Kirchen, Lucky Peterson, Otis Taylor, and Eric Burdon. Many influences have blended to create Mo’s unique style.

When he plays, Greg Brown or Mark Knopfler are two that might come to mind. Fellow musicians seem to gravitate toward him, wanting to play along on his songs. What is it about Mo’ Kauffey that captures the audience and makes him fans wherever he plays? Maybe it’s the man; maybe it’s the voice or the delivery. Whatever it is, it works! Just say Mo’ to music!

The return of this concert series represents the end of a one year hiatus for Bluesafire. We are grateful for the patronage of venue owner & staff @ Fat Tony's as well as to the fans of this series whose avid support brought it back to life.

The modus operandi for the continuation of this series is to create synergy between the blues societies & roots musicians of Southern Ontario and Western New York.
