Meet JoJo Green
“This band is high energy, tons of fun! FILLED with amazing musicians! Drums, keys, sax, bass, vocals---you name it! SO TIGHT! And they have a killer new sound that isn’t out there. Very original!”
— Laurel Tomandl, Local Music Influencer
Top Shelf Pop-Fusion
St Paul indie fusion quintet, JoJo Green is a well-oiled machine that boasts a big, energetic, uniquely authentic face-smacking sound. With strong influences from Motown, Muscle Shoals, and The Summer of Love, JoJo Green gives a nostalgic feeling to a fresh sound, easy on the ears, and exciting to the body. Listeners are mesmerized by JoJo Green's powerhouse vocals mixed with agile woodwinds, shredding guitars, funky bass, and driving drums: a surefire crowd pleaser! It's difficult to drop their music into one category, so they've dubbed their own genre, "Pop Fusion".
What is Pop-Fusion?
Pop-fusion is JoJo Green's own little brand of combined Americana styles including Funk, Soul, Jazz, Country and Rock. It's like a potluck for your ears and has something for every listener. By mixing styles, we continuously challenge ourselves to be the best musicians we can be, on top of our game for every performance.

“You know how much fun it is to see a full stage of musicians mixing and melding amazing tunes. That’s JoJo Green...Collectively these guys have years of experience playing a wide range of genres. That experience and knowledge shine through the music. There’s a lotta Motown in a song like Miles Apart and (I think) a hint of ska to Some Day. Musically the songs are tasty, rich and danceable.” - Ann Treacy
