In the early seventies, Mojo Collins signed a songwriting and recording contract with Bill Graham and David Rubinson of Fillmore Records. With this the band "Sawbuck" was born and featured Mojo on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, along with guitarist Ronnie Montrose and drummer Chuck Ruff. Bill Church and Starr Donaldson rounded out the band on bass and lead guitar with keyboardist Steve Hatley coming on board later. They all sang and this added to the attraction that led them to touring with Janis Joplin, Steve Miller, Pink Floyd and Santana. When time came for the closing of the Fillmore West, Mojo and his band "Sawbuck" were featured on the weeklong lineup of concerts.
Doug Saum of Barbarous Generation Music in Reno Nevada had this to say about Mojo after seeing him in concert in 2012. "His southern gentlemanly manner and Mark Twainish appearance caught our attention, but it was his extraordinary guitar performance and voice that blew us out of the water. He is a pure original and master of the blues. He played acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, dobro, and sang about a dozen original songs with an efficiency I've seldom witnessed before. No joke. Even though I've been a musician and blues fan since 1965, Mojo's innovative playing/writing opened my eyes to the limitless possibilities within the blues format. I am not exaggerating when I say that he deserves to have his name included with those of B. B. King, Muddy Waters, Elmore James, etc. His songs touched our hearts and we can't wait for him to return our way."
