music is all about energy and heat - and Mo' Mojo brings both on! The band's music adds Cajun
melodies to blues sounds from all over the south, and
the result is something positive, energetic, and most
Mo Mojo combines the fiery sounds of Louisiana with a stage
show so dynamite they are indisputably Ohio's hottest zydeco band. Mo Mojo
consists of Jen Maurer on accordion/lead vocals/guitar, Joe
Golden - guitar/vocals, Leigh Ann Wise -
vocals/rubboard/trumpet/percussion, Davidione Pearl -
sax/rubboard/vocals/percussion, Anthony Papaleo - fiddle/guitar,
Darren Thompson - bass, Will Douglas - drums.
Sam Rettman on harmonica and sax.
Mo Mojo covers a lot of ground in the
genre. In addition to their own originals, a Mo' Mojo show includes staple hits from zydeco kings such
as Clifton Chenier, Boozoo Chavis, and Beau Jacques; the
new zydeco funk sounds of Chris and Sean Ardoin, and
Keith Frank; and zydeco versions of songs by Led Zepplin,
Ben Harper, and Blues Traveler. They also specialize in
Mardi Gras and other New Orleans music.
