Mojoflo is one of central Ohio’s most exciting bands. Judging from their Facebook pictures alone, you can see Mojoflo is no joke, with an electrifying stage show and powerhouse vocals.

I spent this rainy afternoon listening to their horn-fueled, Funk/R&B songs. The Waiting EP contains nothing but greatness. The cool keys and simple yet effective lyrics on Wanna Be Wit U is a great place to start if you’ve yet to hear of the Columbus band. Home to You has a groovy bass and old-school fast-paced drum pattern reminiscent of classic James Brown tracks.

Singer, Amber Knicole, is a diva! Beyonce's wild step-sister.

The band took the stage last night as a part of the All Good Festival 2013 in Thornville and is performing today at Columbus’ Jazz & Rib Fest. If you’ve missed these chances to see them live, don’t miss them next Friday, July 26, at Cleveland’s Rock City Festival.

Listen to their most recent single, Right On (Back Around).
