A foot stomping gumbo of Roots rock, old school Soul, New Orleans rhythms, and feel-good “secular" Gospel! Winners of the Independent Music Awards "Best Live Performance" Category 2011, and Nominee's of the 2013 Independent Music Awards for best R&B / Soul song "Shine On", Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution is on a mission to make the world a more righteous place. The two main visionaries of this 12-piece explosion of love - Brother Joscephus and his eccentric cohort, The Right Reverend Dean Dawg - dip heavily into a musical gumbo rich with old school soul, roots, classic rock stylings, New Orleans rhythms, and feel-good “secular gospel” music. BroJo combines all this with a message of righteousness, urging us towards acceptance and loving one another. When you combine the music and the message with a one-of-a-kind, high-energy stage spectacle, you got yourself one hell of a  LOVE revolution on your hands.
