About Jockamo

The finest in Bluesiana Music! It’s feel good Louisiana party music of the Crescent City and Gulf Coast. We like to mix it up with foot stompin’ Zydeco, get up and dance blues & some of our equally as good originals. Bon Ton Roulet!! IIEEE!


Jockamo is booking for 2014 and beyond! Please, contact us and we’ll bring you our Jockamo party. You’ll be glad you did!

Forming in 2001, Jockamo began playing music representing the Gulf Coast and New Orleans styles. Their music grew over the years spanning from foot stompin’ Zydeco, Blues, R&B, to good ole Rock & Roll! Jockamo is very well received on festival stages all over Colorado as well as the club circuit. You won’t find many bands that cover as much musical territory as Jockamo, while still retaining a sound all their own.

Band Leader, Rich “Papamo” Johnson, directs Jockamo from behind his keys and out front! With his fun-loving accordion playing and a great voice for zydeco, Papamo brings New Orleans with him wherever he goes. Lead vocalist, Jill Watkins is a powerful singer and an entertaining performer! Her soul-grinding blues style and passion for performing have made her a Colorado favorite for years. Jill joined Jockamo in 2011, bringing a playfulness and joyful energy to an already very tight show. A must hear sound!

“You can tell this band has been together for more than ten years! They are tight tight tight!” – Jockamo Fan
