JoJo Hermann's 'Slim Wednesday' Is Hitting The Road This Spring February 08, 2017 12:29
While we won't be seeing quite as many shows from Widespread Panic in 2017, keyboardist JoJo Hermann shows no signs of slowing down. Earlier this morning, Hermann announced a handful of spring tour dates with his latest side project, JoJo's Slim Wednesday. This New Orleans style jazz funk group features the cast of JoJo Herman (keys), Greg Bryant (bass), Kevin Mabin (drums), Jonathan Jackson (saxophone), Ben Clark (trumpet), and Bill Elder (guitar). See below for the band's official bio, as well as a complete list of tour dates.
JoJo's Slim Wednesday creates a sound that keeps listeners dancing all night. The band focuses on the sound of New Orleans that was pioneered by artists like Professor Longhair, Dr. John, and The Funky Meters, all of which were a huge part of JoJo's musical background. John “JoJo” Hermann is known for his lead vocals on many New Orleans style jazz and blues covers and originals along with gospel-style organ playing. In capturing the quintessential sound of New Orleans, The Slim Wednesday Band will be sure to provide a night of dancing, partying, and great entertainment.
