Brother Joscephus and the Love Revival Revolution Orchestra will hit the stage at Boone Saloon on Thursday, Jan. 21, at 10 p.m.

Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door.

Brother Joscephus and the Love Revival Revolution Orchestra is an 11-piece "explosion of righteousness," blending New Orleans party music, secular gospel, soul and old-time rock 'n' roll into a "feel-good gumbo of love."

More than just a band, BroJo is a feast for the eyes and the ears that actually recreates Fat Tuesday of Mardi Gras. The band dresses in its finest whites, and each show comes complete with a second-line parade through the crowd, bead throwing, and dancing with parasols.

Brother Joscephus is a completely original act and a legitimate rising star in the music world. In the band's short history (formed in spring 2008), they have already gained enough of a following to sell out New York City's Highline Ballroom and play preeminent NYC venues like B.B. King's, Brooklyn Bowl and Sullivan Hall, sharing the stage with Rebirth Brass Band, The Radiators, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Trombone Shorty, Big Sam's Funky Nation, Bonerama, and Eric Lindell.

Now the Revolution is spreading up and down the east coast with heralded performances from Harper's Ferry in Boston and Discover Jazz Festival in Vermont, all the way down to Bele Chere in Asheville, Smith's Olde Bar in Atlanta, and Tipitina's (FQ) in New Orleans.

BroJo released its self-titled debut album in February 2009, and songs "I Won't Be That Man" and "A Child Shall Lead" were selected as finalists in the R&B and Gospel categories of the prestigious 2009 John Lennon Songwriting Competition.
