Miss Mojo

Miss Mojo is a soul-pop band based in New Orleans, LA that strives to move audiences through its powerful songwriting and high-energy live performances. The band's creative strength draws from contemporary neo-soul and New Orleans' extensive funk tradition, producing original music where soul and pop flawlessly coexist. Years of playing in New Orleans' vibrant party scene simultaneously helped sculpt Miss Mojo's memorable performance style, which excites audiences and celebrates the band members' passion for making music together. With two strong frontwomen serving as the voice of the band, Miss Mojo also uses its platform to highlight the power of women in music.

Miss Mojo released its debut EP, Up & Personal, in January 2017. The group is slated to release its first full length album, Love in Time, in June 2018. Having shared the stage with some of New Orleans' most prolific artists, such as Rebirth Brass Band, Big Sam's Funky Nation, Dumpstaphunk, and many more, Miss Mojo now hopes to bring its energy and music to venues and audiences across the country.

Aaron Benjamin

Fired in the furnace of the Motor City and steeped in the Big Easy heat, Aaron Benjamin redefines the sound of classic vinyl. Powered by overdriven guitar riffs, interlaced with soaring vocal harmonies, and fueled by the raw force of New Orleans brass, Aaron Benjamin is a new voice in Rock n Roll.

Backed by an incendiary seven-piece band, he has performed throughout New Orleans, the United States, and Europe. He combines the frenetic grit and intensity of garage rock with the soul and nuance of classic Motown. His debut album “Aaron Benjamin" (available on all major platforms) was released to a sold-out crowd at New Orleans’ indie hub, Gasa-Gasa. The record is a testament to the sounds of the cities that shaped him, and a roadmap for his future in rock n roll.

"Aaron Benjamin’s original music is a brilliant melding of [his] tastes and memories…Benjamin’s distinctive voice is entirely his own. With an ability to craft his stories through song, he invites the audience to feel what he has felt while rocking out at his shows." - GoNOLA
