JoGo Project

About

The JoGo Project is an ensemble based in Washington, DC dedicated to preserving and promoting DC's indigenous music - Go-Go. JoGo was formed in 2014 by Elijah Jamal Balbed - a DC native and Saxophonist who performed with The Godfather of Go-Go Chuck Brown from 2011 until Chuck's passing in May of 2012. JoGo continues in the tradition of Chuck Brown by keeping the Jazz elements prominent in the music. Known for a high-energy performance, strong vocals, and one of the baddest percussionists around, JoGo will have you on your feet and sweaty by the end. Bring your dancing shoes and a towel - you'll need it! And don't forget, Jazz + Go-Go = JoGo.
