About the event
MAMA JUKE is a gumbo of New Orleans influenced blues, blue-eyed soul, funk, and folk. Actor/singer Elijah Bridges brings elements of bluegrass and rag with his soulful harmonica, acoustic guitar, and voice. Amos Rose is a world traveling multi-instrumentalist who also sings and plays lead Telecaster guitar, and was recently featured by Jazz at Lincoln Center. Brendan O’Grady is an in-demand session musician, and fixture on the greater New York scene since his roots growing up in Yonkers. Drummer Jon Wert is a sought-after musician in the NYC, collaborating with a wide variety of artists in the jazz, rock, pop production shows and songwriter worlds. The result is a four-part-harmony freight train just a-hummin' down the rails. The band has original music as well as a crowd-pleasing repertoire of cover songs. They've held a weekly residency at East Village Social, a St. Marks music hub in the heart of the East Village, since September 2015.
