Featuring A three-piece horn section lead by Jimmy Sloggett.

It was way back in 1994 when Joe Creighton released his first solo album Hollywell and supported New Orleans First Family of Funk, The Neville Brothers, on their Australian tour, igniting a friendship between drummer Willie Green and Creighton that culminated in time spent in New Orleans.

Now, Joe Creighton is bringing the inspiration from the world-class musicians who captivated him during that period to MEMO St Kilda!

Creighton has always been a big fan of The Meters, The Neville Brothers, Dr John and Professor Longhair since the funky 70s and was able to live out the dream in the infectious birthplace of blues music. As a result, Creighton formed a band called The Uptown Rulers when he returned to Australia who became regulars at Melbourne’s iconic Espy Hotel and attracted a dedicated following.

Creighton’s new show, JC & the Po’Boys, picks up where The Uptown Rulers left off and are breaking all the rules by getting bigger and louder with this nine-piece outfit.

Delivering a banquet of New Orleans Second Line Funk, Soul and R&B from previously named artists, as well as Sly & the Family Stone, the Commodores, The Temptations, along with The Staple Singers, Ann Peebles and Etta James, it’s hard not to lose yourself in the music.

The legendary Jimmy Sloggett leads the three-piece horn section which creates a recipe for some real high energy, scorching funk sounds.

It would be hard to find anyone in this county that has the musicianship and talent of Joe Creighton as a bass player and singer. When he performs he takes his audience on the journey with him and effortlessly creates a palpable magic that fills the room with his infectious bass beat and powerful vocals.
