Opening Act: Jontavious Willis
TajMo: The Taj Mahal & Keb’ Mo’ Band brings to life the Grammy Award-winning collaboration between these two Blues titans in an exciting night of live music; performing songs from their long-anticipated collaborative album TajMo, available now on Concord Records.
While the two have known and influenced each other for decades, TajMo marks the first proper collaboration between Taj Mahal and Keb’Mo’ and is a once-in-a-lifetime convergence of the talents of two unique American artists who have already built significant individual legacies. The collaboration brings out the best in both artists, who merge their distinctive voices, personalities and guitar styles to create vibrant, immediate music that’s firmly rooted in tradition yet ruled by a restless, spirited sense of adventure.
Taj Mahal has been recording and performing his unmistakable blend of blues and world music for over 50 years, winning multiple Grammys and collaborating with the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and more along the way. Keb’ Mo,’ who has often cited Taj as one of his musical heroes, is a 4-time Grammy Winner who has collaborated with everyone from Raitt to Jackson Browne and Buddy Guy.
About Jontavious Willis
At the age of 21, bluesman Jontavious Willis has mastered the craft of blues music, and has sent a jolt of energy through the blues world. “That’s my Wonderboy, the Wunderkind,” Taj Mahal said after inviting Jontavious to play on stage in 2015. “He’s a great new voice of the twenty-first century in the acoustic blues. I just love the way he plays.”
Hailing from Greenville, Ga., Jontavious grew up singing gospel music at the Mount Pilgrim Baptist Church with his grandfather. Currently Jontavious is finishing his studies at Columbus State University, majoring in sociology. But on most weekends you can find him playing a small house show, up on the main stage or posting music videos for his friends and fans around the world.
