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.
Darla is an 8-piece experimental funk group formed in 2014 in Philadelphia. Self-described ‘basement blender funk,’ the Darla sound is a fusion of their origins in the Philly basement rock scene along with a strong influence in 70s jazz/funk composition and improvisation. At its core, Darla is driven by a powerful saxophone duo that wields lyrical melodic sensibility with their efforts matched by a jarring yet methodical rhythm section that has been called ‘Steely Dan with Dave Grohl on drums’.
Darla has shared the stage with the likes of Snarky Puppy, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, The Disco Biscuits, George Porter Jr. (of The Meters), Kamasi Washington, Bill Laurance, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, and Cory Henry and the Funk Apostles. Darla was born ready to share their funk across the eastern seaboard.
