Noon Concert: Mogen’s Heroes @ Old Courthouse Museum

Mogen's Heroes

 

 

Mogen’s Heroes
Fine-Tuned Harmony & Humor

Mogen’s Heroes is a fine-tuned trio that has been pleasing Midwestern audiences since 1978. Like the South Dakota weather, they are apt to change styles in a matter of minutes.

Founded by Waubay, S.D. native John Mogen (keyboards), the group features two other home-grown musicians: Bill Hoffman (drums and a Redfield, S.D. rhythm master) and Denny Gale (guitar and a Wagner warbler). Gale’s writing wit is witness to his many years with the Associated Press. Hoffman’s incredibly versatile vocals highlight the Heroes’ harmonies. Mogen’s one-third century in music education rounds out this trio’s personality. This threesome thoroughly enjoys having fun with music. They blend humor with harmonies to please all ages.
