Vero nome:
Cesare Ferioli
Cesare Ferioli aka Big Mojo, born in Bologna on 1967, made his debut appearance in 1981 playing drums with the then very young bolognese punk band Uxidi D.C. and Urban Fight, then he plays with the new wave/post punk band Tribal Noise during the first half of the eighties, and the rock'n'roll band Jack Daniel's Lovers during the late 80's. This led up to the album "Stay Out Of Jail" by J.D.L. (1988 - Lakota Records / Ricordi Italy), produced by Los Lobo's Steve Berlin, which took them on an extensive tour to perform on stages all over the country.

From 1990 to 1996 he drummed with the rock/blues band Dirty Hands, issuing three records with them ("Dirty Hands" - 1992 S.D.R.Rec.; "XXX Hot Chilli" - 1993 Boots Rec.; "Four Cool Cats" - 1995 Boots Rec.) and playing on the European blues circuit and the southern and western American ones (New Orleans, Austin, San Antonio, Tuscon, Flagstaff, Los Angeles etc...).

He has worked with many blues artists both in Italy and overseas (Andy J Forest Italian / American tour '92; Paul Orta and the King Pins American tour '93, J Monque'D Italian Tours '94/'95, Mark Hummel Italian Tour '95) with genres that range from surf music (X - Raymen '95/'97) to garage/punk (Sciacalli '98)...but never forgot blues.

During the 2002 he becomes Big Mojo to produce its own music and create a fusion between electronica and roots like blues and funk. Like Big Mojo he has produced two albums and countless singles

From 2008 to today he is drummer and producer for Wu Ming Contingent, the band of the Wu Ming collective
