“A Party Volcano … Get your dose of funk-bluegrass-rock and blue-eyed soul.” -The Village Voice
MAMA JUKE is a gumbo of New Orleans influenced blues, blue-eyed soul, funk, and folk. Actor/singer Elijah Bridges (Jessica Jones) brings elements of bluegrass and rag with his soulful harmonica, acoustic guitar, and voice. Amos Rose is a world traveling multi-lingual multi-instrumentalist who also sings and plays lead Telecaster guitar, and was recently featured by Jazz at Lincoln Center Doha. Pete O’Neill is an in-demand session musician, teacher, and bassist recently featured in the New York Times. Drummer Jon Wert and percussionist ninja Titus Tompkins are sought-after drummers in the NYC scene. 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.
