BLU goes Big Easy with Akron's-own «Pardi-Gras» flavored band, infusing Zydeco music with Americana, Cajun, reggae, funk & more! Come celebrate the sounds of New Orleans (the birthplace of jazz) at BLU!

And! This is a double birthday party for local ladies Ilona Reeves and Abagail Swafford. Plan on some extra party madness!

Mo' Mojo Music is a hard driving, high energy, “Pardi-Gras” Band. The female fronted group features three-part harmonies, accordion, fiddle, guitar, rubboard, sax, trumpet, harp, bass, percussion, and drums. Songs are sung in English and French.

Mo’ Mojo tours nationally and internationally, performing at festivals, dances, and venues in the Midwest, the East Coast, and the Carribean. They served as musical ambassadors with the U.S. State Department and/or the American Music Abroad Program to bring their brand of Zydeco to the following countries: Haiti and the Dominican Republic (2014); Belize, Panama, Mexico, Barbados, Colombia, Tajikistan (2015), Sri Lanka (2017)).
