The JoGo Project

June 7, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT


The JoGo Project is a WAMMIE Award winning band based in Washington, DC that fuses many styles of music, but with Jazz harmonies and a driving Go-Go beat at its core. JoGo was founded in 2014 by DC Native and a prominent figure on the Jazz scene Elijah Jamal Balbed during his residency at Strathmore following an inspirational experience working with the “Godfather of Go-Go” Chuck Brown. JoGo has since performed at many notable DC area venues such as The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Theatre, Strathmore, Fort Dupont and DC Jazz Festival. Since June of 2021, JoGo has maintained a monthly residency Keystone Korner, a historic venue where the likes of Grover Washington and Patrice Rushen have performed. Most recently, Elijah was included in a published book called “DC Go-Go: Ten Years Backstage” by Chip Py – Chuck Brown’s last (and only) official photographer.

This event is part of the Mars Arts D.C. Concert Series at Songbyrd—a free, four-part concert series offering a monthly musical oasis to D.C.-music lovers of all kinds. Ranging from March to June of 2023, the Mars Arts D.C. Concert Series at Songbyrd features local artists performing a wide array of genres.
