Brother Joscephus is very excited to be bringing back his 11 piece Love Revolution back to the Appel Farms Arts & Music Festival this Saturday June 1st. The band, which formed in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2007, had a great time at last year’s festival and is excited at the prospect of bringing more believers into the fold.

“It’s a celebration of love and acceptance” says Brother Joscephus. With their large band featuring awesome horn arrangements and wonderful back-up vocalists they put on a powerful live performance with their blend of New Orleans/R&B/Soul sound. It’s a secular gospel rock experience like no other with a soul shaking sermon delivered by the Brother and his partner in crime the Reverend Dean Dog.

Brother Jo is also excited about the band’s new studio record (their second) Revolution Of Love. He describes it as “Epic Gospel Rock”. “It’s like a concept album of the seventies only without the story line perhaps. We get to really expand on our live sound by using a five piece horn section and full gospel choir. The songs are like seven minutes long instead of our normal four or five. We just really got a chance to expand on what we do. Everything is fully arranged and put together and the result is wonderful.”

When the band tours outside of a four hour radius from New York they use local musicians to fill out the roster. This Saturday at Appel Farm the home grown Revolution Of Love will be performing. Can I get an Amen! For more info visit their website.
