Blues Cruise No. 6: Mojo Tweed

September 20, 2020

Come hang out with us and this awesome band playing some New Orleans Funk! These guys are a blast to watch and the music is awesome. It’s one big jam session whenever they play!

MOJO TWEED came together from a group of friends who like playing a variety of blues, funk and R&B . The name came from their desire to play through small tweed tube amps and to evoke Mojo or Voodoo. Most of its members have been playing together for some 20+ years in a variety of bands and settings. The band likes playing stuff with a little New Orleans attitude as well as originals and classics by Muddy Waters, Little Walter and Howlin Wolf. This music is most fun when mixed with good food, good friends and a relaxed vibe. The New Orleans term “Social Aid and Pleasure Club” accurately describes what this group are after.

The Smoky Mountain Blues Society promotes seven blues cruises every year from April to October. The Star of Knoxville Riverboat is an authentic paddle-wheeler United States Coast Guard. The main deck is fully enclosed, air conditioned, and heated for year-round comfort. The vessel is equipped with two (2) bars, a dance floor, band stage, and is exquisitely decorated for the most elegant dinner and entertainment available.

If you’ve never been in one of these cruises, you should definitely try to experience one.
