Mo’ Mojo takes Zydeco music and infuses it with Americana, Cajun, reggae, rock & roll, funk, R&B, and African and Latin rhythms.

We love festivals! This band can command any size stage and is equipped to lead workshops in fiddle and guitar styles; songwriting; Zydeco, second line, and African rhythms; and Zydeco dance.

Where we play:
Zydeco Dances – One of our favorite things to do is play for dancers. We’ve expanded our presence into the following communities: The DC area; Pittsburgh and Philadelphia (PA), Ithaca, Rochester, and New York City (NY); and Newark (DE)
 
Clubs – Small or large, local or out-of-state, we love the club experience with dancers, smiles, drinks, and good vibes all around. A local club is what we grew from and we’ll always be appreciative of a venue that let’s us get close and personal with our audience!
 
Festivals – We’re a band made for the festival experience. This year we’re set to return to Blissfest (MI) and the W.C. Handy Blues Fest (KY) and we’re looking to add others asap; in 2014 we debuted at DelFest (MD); Grey Fox (NY); and Rhythm and Roots (RI). Prior festivals include the Jambalaya Music Fest (PA); the Burning River Festival, Cleveland Garlic Festival, Kent State ‘Round Town Festival, International Children’s Festival, Hessler Street Festival, Fraze Pavilion Swamp Fest (OH)

International Touring – Mo’ Mojo has worked with the State Department and/or the American Music Abroad Program to play the following countries: Haiti and the Dominican Republic (2014); Belize, Panama, Mexico, Barbados, and Colombia (2015). As representatives of an American Art Form with Zydeco music, we focus on both performances and all age workshops.
