"Mogen's Heroes" business card says, "having fun making music." What you see is what you hear. Three grown men acting like kids, singing and playing songs we have grown up with. John Mogen, a Waubay native, started "Mogen's Heroes" in 1978. He plays keyboards, harmonica, and sings. Dennis Gale started playing guitar during his high school days in Wagner. Drummer Bill Hoffman is a Rockham (near Redfield) rocker. "Mogen's Heroes" music can take your mind back to your childhood days. Variety is the keyword to the style of music you'll hear from these three fun-makers. Three-part harmonies dominate every song.
