Add to Calendar 2017-11-14 8:00 PM 2017-11-14 One For Pops: The Jogo Ep at Blues Alley In May of 2012, almost exactly a year after Elijah Balbed's first time playing with Chuck Brown, at the age of 75 and after a long, fruitful career, the legendary Godfather of Go-Go had passed away. The devastation spread through the city, and nobody was ready to lose DC's native son and unofficial mayor. After this occurrence, Elijah knew that he had to do something to continue Chuck's legacy. After a couple years of planning and brainstorming, Elijah debuted The JoGo Project as a part of an artist residency at Strathmore. The concert was a success, so Elijah continued working on the JoGo concept, and now the band has become a common name in DC, having performed at venues such as the Kennedy Center, H Street Festival, Funk Parade, Art All Night, The Lincoln Theatre, and more!
