Widespread Panic's JoJo Hermann has announced a handful of spring tour dates with his latest side project, JoJo's Slim Wednesday. This run of shows kicks off on April 4th at The Basement East in Nashville, and continues with stops Oxford, MS (4/5), Birmingham, AL (4/6), New Orleans, LA (4/7-4/8), Atlanta, GA (4/10), Charlotte, NC (4/11), Raleigh, NC (4/12), Charleston, SC (4/13-4/14), and Asheville, NC (4/15). 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/vocals).
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.
