WEEKEND: Mogis to make magic in Coyle

COYLE — Back when their band Deadwood Revival played the Bainbridge Bluegrass Festival, Jason Mogi and Kim Trenerry had the crowd smitten.

“The whole audience stayed and stayed and kept asking them for more,” recalled Norm Johnson, founder of that summer festival.

“Not only was their music good, but they have such crowd appeal that it is just fun to be around them,” he added.

Now that Johnson runs the Concerts in the Woods series, he’s bringing Mogi and Trenerry over for a show at Coyle’s Laurel B. Johnson Community Center at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday. It’s to be a night of Americana, Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan songs and originals such as “Ginny Aphrodite” and “Passenger Side,” including reimagined versions of tracks from Deadwood Revival’s three albums.

Music lovers of all ages are welcome, and admission is, as usual, by donation.

These days Mogi and Trenerry go by the name The Mogis. They’re married, after all; have been for 11 years. The duo specializes in vocal harmonies with an edge, filled out with Trenerry’s bass and acoustic guitar and Mogi’s clawhammer banjo, guitar and harmonica.

The Community Center, at 923 Hazel Point Road, is in rural Jefferson County, so those wanting directions are encouraged to contact Johnson at 360-765-3449, johnson5485@msn.com or 206-459-6854. More about the center and the Concerts in the Woods series, which brings live music to the center at least once a month, can be found at www.HazelPoint.info.
