Brother Joscephus and the Love Revival Revolution Orchestra will be playing a debut performance at the Workhouse Arts Center, located at 9601 Ox Rd. in Lorton, on Saturday, June 9, at 7 p.m. Admission is free.
Brother Joscephus will be coming off a mini Midwest tour that included a performance at Summer Camp Festival, plus another debut performance at Appel Farm Arts and Music Center in Elmer, N.J.
Brother Joscephus and the Love Revival Revolution Orchestra is an international musical collective of righteousness, having performed live with over 200 members, topping out at 23 during the recording of Live at Brooklyn Bowl, which was nominated by the Independent Music Awards for "Best Live Performance 2011." Their sound is a blend of Secular Gospel (that's right, gospel without the religion), Funkified Soul, R&B, and Roots Rock into a feel-good gumbo of love. The band began performing in late 2007 and has gathered quite a following due to acclaimed performances at the Discover Jazz Festival, Clearwater Festival, Crawfish Fest, and multi-show runs in New Orleans during JazzFest.
For this Lorton revival, Brother Joscephus will be joined by local Washington, D.C.-based Revolutionaries Greg Boyer, Brad Clements, and Ben Bokor.
