Mo MoJo Saturday April 9 at MoBo


International traveling band Mo' Mojo is bringing Louisiana-spiced Zydeco, Cajun, Blues, Roots, Rock, & Reggae to MoBo on Saturday, April 9, 2016. Doors open at 7 p.m. The Haw River Rounders will open with a set of swing tunes and other goodness and Mo MoJo will start up around 8:30.

The female-fronted group is a hard-driving, high-energy, “Pardi-Gras” band that “hopes to whip listeners into a joyous, dancing frenzy. Or at least to elicit a waltz.” They travel with three-part harmonies, accordion, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, rubboard, trumpet, bass, percussion, and drums.

Their Durham performance is part of a spring tour that takes them to Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and New York. Over the last 2 years the band has worked with the U.S. State Department and the American Music Abroad Program to perform and teach in Haiti and the Dominican Republic (2014); Belize, Panama, Mexico, Barbados, Colombia, and Tajikistan (2015).

Their latest release, “We All Got The Same,” has 12 songs: 9 originals; 2 Zydeco standards meant to pay homage to the musical tradition; and 1 two-parts cover/one-part original medley based on Bob Marley’s “Stir It Up.” It features the unique stylings that Mo’ Mojo is known for, with a Zydeco base that blends in Cajun, Blues, Americana, Indie Rock, & Reggae.

Suggested Donation 15 dollars, or as able.
BYOB, snack to share if you wish
MoBo is located at 609 Trent Drive, Durham.
