Miss Mojo – a soul-pop band based in New
Orleans, Louisiana whose distinctive style is
characterized by its airtight rhythm section,
its hard-hitting horns, and the vocal stylings of Jenna Winston and Piper Browne. The group’s creative
energy draws principally from neo-soul and
New Orleans’ extensive funk tradition,
producing smooth and soulful original music
in which “hip” and “pop” flawlessly coexist.
Through years of playing in the city’s vibrant
party scene, Miss Mojo has developed
extremely high-energy live
performances that celebrate the band’s passion for making
In January of 2017, Miss Mojo released its
debut EP, Up & Personal, a six-track album
whose soulful ballads and body-loosening
funk tunes demonstrate the band’s versatility.
The group is also consistently in the process
of producing more original material for
release in the coming months. Having shared
bills with some of New Orleans’ most prolific
artists (like the Rebirth Brass Band,
Dumpstaphunk, and Big Sam’s Funky Nation)
on some of the city’s most historic stages
(including Tipitina’s, Maple Leaf Bar, and the
Howlin’ Wolf), Miss Mojo now hopes to bring
its energy and music to venues and
audiences across the country.
Brass Mimosa – What once started as an idea for a blues rock band gradually formed into the funky grooves of Brass Mimosa. Featuring Jack Langlinais on drums, Ethan Mould on alto sax, Alex Camel on bass, Blake Pujol on guitar, Eddie Müller on trombone, and Olatunde Soyombo on baritone sax, Brass Mimosa, like most local bands, comes from humble beginnings. The band started off practicing in their bassist’s living room and graduated to regularly playing at almost every major venue in Lafayette and the surrounding areas. They have also had the pleasure of sharing the bill with several national touring acts such as Eyes Lips Eyes, Herman Astro, Snarky Puppy, and Shaun Martin. Having recently finished recording their first album entitled ‘Stay Sharp’ at the famous Dockside Studios, and playing for the second time at Festival International de Louisiane, Brass Mimosa is on the brink of a new era in funk!
