Josh Ford aka Motor City Josh

Led by founder and front man Josh Ford, Motor City Josh started as a full time Blues musician back in 1991 with The Curtis Sumter Project. Then went on to form Motor City Josh & The Big 3 in 1994. Over the years, Josh has performed around the U.S. and Europe and has released nine recordings with over 100,000 copies sold.

The band and Josh went on hiatus for several years when Josh opened the Sound Shop Studio in 2011. By 2017 he started playing with other groups and announced on his Facebook page in August 2019 that Motor City Josh & the Big 3 would be preforming every Monday night at the Blue Goose Inn starting in October.
