“A feel-good explosion of Soul, Secular Gospel, R&B, Roots Rock and New Orleans Style,” is how Brother Joscephus and The Love Revolution, a Brooklyn-based 12-piece orchestra, describes their electrifying musical sound. David Mendelsohn, BroJo’s funk master and vocal leader, and his right-hand multi-instrument playing music man, Dean Franson, a.k.a. The Right Reverend Dean Dawg, are on a mission to spread the gospel of love from show to shining show. Nov. 25’s Pearl Street Warehouse performance will be a NOLA style tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Beatles ubiquitous Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
Performing the entire iconic album in Pearl Street Warehouse’s intimate Americana oriented concert setting, Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution is sure to get even the most turkey laden audience member up and grooving to their infections beat.
