Under the sheltering oaks of Bonaventure cemetery in Savannah, four middle- aged men are the only ones left as a coffin is lowered into the sandy Georgia earth. Just some guys who used to be in a band, here to say goodbye to one of their own. The story should end here but in its own scattered way this is where the story begins.

The JoJa Band started with humble beginnings and pretty much ended up the same way just a few short years later. Back in the 1970's, there were nowhere near the commercial avenues that bands have starting out today. Not that this band would have taken advantage of them anyway. They played what they wanted to; when they wanted to. They never had a chance. From their inception, the JoJa Band seemed like unchanged men in a changed land - out of step, out of place and desperately out of time.

Fortunately for the fans of this style of music something much stronger than a desire "to make it" drove the band to form and play. The JoJa Band proper rose out of the ashes of the Easywalkers. Formed around 1972, the band included Jimmy Maddox and Bobby Hanson, its principal composers and guitarist Steffens Clark. Not long after the demise of the Easywalkers, Maddox and Clark joined forces with singer Howard Jobe, bassist Philip Alaimo, and drummer Danny Williby to form the first incarnation of the JoJa Band. The band traveled the interstates of the southeastern US playing whatever gigs and songs the road had to offer. After Alaimo left and Danny Branson came aboard to play bass the band decided to return to Savannah and concentrate on original material. Old friend Bobby Hanson was added and some of the Easywalker material was resurrected. That and other new compositions ultimately became their first self-produced release, Cold Winds (1977)...
