“After several years of spreading their jam around the city of New Orleans, Mo' Jelly Band has released its fi rst album to a number of eagerly waiting fans. The fun-loving band of local Gentilly and French Quarter natives released Homemade Jam in 2013, contributing their homegrown funk'd-out style to the musically famous city. Their musical admiration of New Orleans greats such as Professor Longhair, Allen Toussaint, Ernie K-Doe, the Meters, the Radiators, and James Rivers seems to have heavily infl uenced the album's tone. Their way of pulling together a number of sounds and rhythms in an improv-like action affi rms the band members’ individual stints and talented musical skills in the industry over the years. Many have played alongside other great musical acts at historic local and regional venues, including playing the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and touring with Cajun bands across Europe. Homemade Jelly is a twisted trifecta of bluesy soul funk,”

Q: Just wanted to confirm that you are playing in Covington tonight April 25th? At the Trailhead where you usually play? Lew Dennis
A: Sorry for being so late on the answer Lew! We played on the Street instead of in the Trailhead stage. It seems from now on any shows not put on by the city will have to pay a huge sum to use their stage! So, the promototers just blocked off the street and set up a flatbed trailer for a stage! It did throw quite a few people off who were looking for us on the stage. I think they drove past and not seeing the activity up there just kept on going and didn't stop. We only got notice the day before the concert ourselves so we weren't really able to get the word out either! Hope to see you next time Lew, thanks for asking!
