Album Notes
Jocamo is a New Orleans styled Funk, R&B and Soul Band.We are likened to bands like P- Funk, The Neville Bros., The Meters, James Brown and Gill Scott-Heron.We have a newly released Cd of Originals entitled "You Know That It's True" which is getting national and some international airplay.The CD is diverse and ranges from party funk to crooning soul. New York's Capitol region's Metroland magazine says:

"Jocamo's first record is a feast o' big-foot funk, as true to it's target as a smart bomb. Every single thing is in the right place, from the Curtis Mayfield chimey and chink-a guitars,to the call-and-response vocals, to the deep,deep grooves that hold the whole soulful thing together.

"You Know That it's True" is vaguely '70s-oriented, in the way Funkadelic is-that is to say, you hear it, you recognize it, but the notion of "retro" doesn't come into play. There's a second-line Mardi Gras cop on "Here Come Jocamo" that's just pure Nevilles, absolutely in the pocket. This is an incendiary record, every song will light up the room. Really.

Dave Macks' big brassy voice is the centerpiece. He'll slap me silly for saying this, but his vocal work here is pure art-when he sings, he flat out sings, when he croons, he croons. And the real treats are the throw-away grunts, the James Brown-like "Heh!" noises and the ad hominem asides that keep pouring out of him as naturally as sweat. His lyrics are of human street scenes, goofy romantic imbroglios and inspirational party chants, and they are true and fun and proud.

The playing is superb and gritty, by Jocamo members Macks, drummer John Lapi and guitarist Matt Hatfield, as well as a pile of guesting local luminaries. To quote Rocky the Flying Squirrel: 'Here's something I think we can all enjoy!'"
-Paul Rapp
