LA CROSSE, Wis. – Enjoy outstanding music and stories from the Louisiana Bayou as Mojo and the Bayou Gypsies perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9 in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.
Mojo and the Bayou Gypsies are excellent musicians and entertainers who immerse the audiences in original Cajun and Zydeco music and dancing in the Southwest Louisiana tradition. Mister Mojo, the charismatic vocalist, accordion player, and songwriter of the group, has been a professional musician since the young age of 11. The group’s songs tell the stories of family, friends, events in their lives, and “the good things in life that money just can’t buy.”
Here is just a sampling of the many rave reviews the band receives wherever they perform: “When Mojo moves in the place ROCKS!” – Chicago Tribune. “Mojo is INCREDIBLE” – CBS TV. “We love their music. Check them out everybody!” – Fox TV. “I love Mojo’s music!” – Wolfman Jack, famous radio legend.
Mojo and the Bayou Gypsies’ music reflects the Louisiana Zydeco tradition as well as Cajun and New Orleans two-step, rock ‘n roll, and blues rhythms which they describe as a “gleeful gumbo of red-hot mojo music.”
This performance is part of Viterbo’s Bright Star Season and is sponsored by Gundersen Health System and in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts. Fox 25/48 and WXYM Mix 96.1 FM are the media sponsors.
