MOJO hosts a Jazz Jambalaya (JJ) every fourth Monday except during the Mobile Mardi Gras season. A MOJO JJ is evening of live jazz, great food, historic environs and fabulous people - with a bit of jazz history and information. We call it "gastro-edu-info-tainment".
Local, regional, national and international musicians perform 2 hours of the best jazz on the Gulf Coast. Admission includes a delicious bowl of jambalaya, salad, assorted cheeses, fruits and desserts.
Full bar service, lighted parking, door-to-door security, an opportunity to win great door prizes and meet celebrity guest narrators all make MOJO Jazz Jambalayas irresistible. Y'all come JAZZ IT UP with MOJO!
It's a lot like jazz. Jambalaya (pronounced JUM-bah-LIE-ah) is a Louisiana Creole dish of Spanish and French influence. The Dictionary of American Food and Drink offers this creative old wives' tale about the origin of the word "jambalaya": Late one evening a traveling gentleman stopped by a New Orleans inn which had little food remaining from the evening meal. The traveler instructed the cook, "Jean, balayez!" or "Jean, sweep something together!" in the local dialect. The guest pronounced the resulting hodge-podge dish as "Jean balayez."
Join us on the 4th Monday for a memorable evening of dining, dancing and JAZZ. at the Gulf City Lodge, 601 State Street in Mobile, AL.
