It's a New Orleans party at The Hamilton on Saturday March 17! Brother Joscephus and the Love Revival Revolution Orchestra is a 12-piece explosion of righteousness that blends New Orleans party music, soul music, a good helping of jam-bandy Roots Rock and a righteous splash of good, upbeat Gospel. Guitarist and vocalist Sol Roots opens the show with energetic rock, raw blues, reggae, and funk, all delivered with deep soul. The Hamilton is Washington DC's newest coolest music venue.
Brother Joscephus and the Love Revival Revolution Orchestra blends New Orleans party music, Soul in the style of Ray Charles and Al Green, a good helping of jam-bandy Roots Rock and a righteous splash of good, upbeat Gospel without the religious overtones (They like to call it secular gospel).
In the group's short history they have already made a big splash in the NYC music scene, sharing the stage with New Orleans stalwarts such as the Rebirth Brass Band, Trombone Shorty, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Bonerama, Big Sam's Funky Nation, the New Orleans Klezmer All-Stars and Eric Lindell. They've sold out legendary venues such as the Highline Ballroom and BB King's.
A Love Revival with Brother Joscephus is more than just excellent original live music. BroJo is also all about the spectacle and pageantryit's a life changing EXPERIENCE! The orchestra is decked out in their finest whites (accented with the appropriate gold, purple and green of Mardi Gras). They break out parasols, start each set with a parade through the audience and throw out hundreds of Mardi Gras beads over the course of a show. When the parade starts grooving the crowd can't help but have a good time. It's undeniable!!
Opening the show will be Sol Roots. Sol is a fierce guitarist and soulful singer who has toured the world with many roots, funk, and blues legends. Sol and his band create a unique blend of rock, blues, reggae, and raw funk, all delivered with deep soul, performing tasty original tunes and bluesy, greasy jams. Sol Roots has toured across the east coast U.S. at many premier festivals and venues and have been on bills with Jon Cleary, Soulive, The Wood Brothers, Robert Randolph, Jackie Greene, Eric Lindell, and more.
Sol has performed on stage and in the studio with musical heavyweights Taj Mahal, Kenny Wayne Shepard, and with the international guitar hero Cool John Ferguson, who he performed with steadily for years. Sol has soaked in much from funk, blues, and soul heroes such as Roy Lee Johnson, Albert White, and Robert Lee Coleman, while touring and gigging with these artists. Sol also created a buzz with his underground blues hiphop album entitled Volume: Blue," that carried him overseas to perform these sets live.
With a love of Universal Music as the guiding light, Sol steps out on a path with a unique and talented band of musicians.
