Q: Hey Mojo Ballroom, What Kind of Music Do You Play?

A: This has been a surprisingly difficult question to answer as it requires
verbally labelling something that is not static, defies quantification, is
perpetually evolving, is so high you can't get over it, so low you can't get
under it, and so wide you can't get around (sort of like that Psychedelic
Shack song that The Temptations played when Motown went psychedlic-1967?).

I have tried using the terms "Pop Casserole Swirls" to describe the music
that I play (which to my way of thinking is an apt description), however
these terms, understandably, lead to exponential forms of confusion for
some. At this time, I would best say that I play eclectic (eclectic is too
flat of a word-does someone have a better word?) forms of imaginative pop
that are held together by a funky-syncopated- form-of-mojo-cohesion that
emanate(s?) both from the heart of my soul and my inner-tuchas. I know this
answer is insufficient but it's the best I got, right now. If you can help
me to define this better, please do so.

Listen Monday Night from 11:00 p.m.-12:00 a.m., WCOM 103.5, or stream us at

Sunday, great fun, WCOM fundraiser at the world Famous "Cat's Cradle" in
Carrboro, NC (AKA The Paris of the Piedmont), support the WCOM cause, it is
definitely worth it. Admission is cheap and so is the fun.
