Soul Rebels Bring the 504 to the 919 at Papa Mojo’s

I had eaten at Papa Mojo’s a few times and loved the food. I saw the Soul Rebels Brass Band at the New Orleans Jazzfest and was blown away. So when I found out there were playing at Papa Mojo’s I knew I was guaranteed a good night. These guys have rocked 50,000 person venues so I couldn’t wait to hear all those horns packed into Papa Mojo’s and they didn’t disappoint.

The food didn’t disappoint either, the Fried Chicken Basket was hot and full of flavor. The Andouille Sausage  Po Boy was dressed with coleslaw, pickles and Papa’s BBQ sauce. Loved the slaw on this sandwich because it wasnt an over mayonnaise mess that is sometimes called coleslaw.

For a few hours last night we were all transported to another place and everything that makes New Orleans a great place was in the building. The food, the dancing, the soul in those horns, the beat of the drums, people who should never dance in public had no choice when the sound hit them. There was an old man who had to be in his eighties and I was afraid  he was going to have a heart attack. If it was the last thing this man did, he was gonna dance and that’s what kind of night it was.


Mel aka Papa Mojo even broke out his harmonica and showed everyone that he isn’t just a chef but a man who clearly knows how to bring his love for Cajun cuisine and the music that defines it together. After the Rebel’s rocked the place, they packed up their tools and headed for another city looking for a fix of New Orleans soul.
