about the band





Audiences have described Mahajibee as a “quintet playing rough and tough, sweaty blues of their own,” and have been attracted to their music in part because of its unique ability to remain a living, breathing thing.

 That’s the beauty in it…its live!

 Our blue collar, nitty gritty style appeals to a diverse audience, perhaps due to the band’s varied influences from both traditional and contemporary musicians. Guitar-based blues with a strong harmonica and a smooth, soulful groove pulls from influences ranging from jazz to rock and everything in between. Simply put, Mahajibee plays the kind of music that makes audiences realize they love the blues.

 Currently, Mahajibee is busy putting together their 2019 show to entertain festival audiences with their rough-and-tumble, heart-and-soul blues this coming spring, summer, and fall.

 Despite their many musical accomplishments and achievements still to come, though, Mahajibee’s goal always remains the same: to connect with and entertain audiences with a fun, impassioned live show!



Pat Tevis - vocals/harp 

Pat is the founding member of Mahajibee (2000) and when he’s not playing with these fellas you’ll find him trying to book gigs or somewhere in the Pennsylvania Wilds fishing in a mountain stream.


Ray Sherman - guitar 

Ray was a former member of Mahajibee. He can be found at “open stages” and playing bass guitar with Miss Freddye’s Home Cookin’ Trio. We're glad to have him back!


Kevin Goss – drums 

Kevin, Jack, and Pat played together in the 80’s in the BigHead Band along with guitarist Mike Bowen and "The Reigning Queen Of Beale Street" Barbara Blue.  You can also catch Kev drumming with "Desperado" an Eagles Tribute Band.

Jack has played numerous gigs with Mahajibee and traveled to Helena, Arkansas to play The King Biscuit Blues Festival in 2009.  Jack can also be found playing with blues, rock, and soul with King’s Ransom featuring multi-talented Craig King on guitar/vocal.


 Sawyer Stepp – guitar   

"Saw" comes to Mahajibee with the experience of playing with The Fertigs Crossroads Band, The Double Edge Band, and the Sawyer Stepp Trio. He likes rock, country and bluegrass however he gets most enjoyment from playing the blues. Looks like Sawyer came to the right place!
