Hip-hop soul band to entertain at NMSU Corbett Center

The hip-hop soul band Mojoe, will perform at 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 22, in the New Mexico State University Corbett Center Auditorium.

Charles Peters, known as Easy Lee, and Treson Scipio, or Tre, are Mojoe, a San Antonio based duo that describes itself as "The Roots meet OutKast over dinner with Marvin Gaye at D'Angelo's house."

"Mojoe has a couple of different meanings," said Easy Lee. "'More than the average Joe is what it stands for, but it also means that we've got something spiritual and magical."

The group developed its own brand of music that they call "Classic.Ghetto.Soul.," and describe the style as "a timeless showcase of worldwise poetry, sweet soul melodies and harmonies, reverent blues and jazz, and Dirty South hip-hop."

The duo is also accompanied by the Mojoe Family Band, a dedicated lineup with colorful nicknames: Funky Genius, Cooley High, D-Maddness, The Carter, and Nookie Coltrane.

Mojoe has steadily built a reputation throughout the South and continues to be a local favorite; readers of the "San Antonio Current", a weekly cultural magazine, have voted Mojoe as the Best Hip-Hop Group for four years running.

This event is free and sponsored by the Union Program Council in celebration of Black History Month.
