James Ives

Lead Guitar


Normally found laughing at Dave's Bum notes, James is the youngest member of the MoJos but do not let his age fool you. 

He spent his earlier life racing Go-Karts against some of Britain's finest young racing talents before picking up a Bass in September 2011. By October he was bored and moved to guitar and realised he had a knack for it.

After attending open mic nights in 2013 with 'The Knaves' he decided to go it alone and jam with the House Bands. People saw great potential in him and in 2015 was offered to join 'After the Lights'.

He has played everywhere from the pubs of London, to the British Grand Prix and MotoGP. Not to mention the Dungeons of rural France.

He has had talks regarding a number of gigs with Neil Young. Yes that Neil Young, and he also names all of his guitars.
