AZTEC SUNw/ The JOGO Project at Pearl Street Warehouse
February 9th, 2018
Since it’s inception in late 2012, Washington DC-based band AZTEC SUN has hypnotized the ears and feet of the District’s live music aficionados. No matter the scale of the venue, this ensemble maintains an upbeat and retro groove steeped in 70's Funk and Soul, Jazz, Afro-funk and Motown-era pop. Their infectious songwriting and energetic live performances have yielded rewards for the group — such as being named Best Local Original Band by the Washington City Paper and sharing the stage with international and national touring acts such as Everyone Orchestra (feat. members from Soulive, Snarky Puppy, Furthur, .moe, The Disco Biscuits), two-time Grammy Award winning keyboardist Shaun Martin (from Snarky Puppy), Burning Spear, The Suffers, Pimps of Joytime and Naughty Professor.
The JoGo Project is inspired by the musical stylings of Chuck Brown. Founded in 2014 by Chuck Brown alumnus Elijah Jamal Balbed during his residency at Strathmore. The group features several DC natives, as well as musicians from around the country who have since claimed DC as their home. JoGo is known to put on an eclectic live show that incorporates Jazz, Funk, Soul Hip-Hop, Reggae and of course Go-Go. "
