About Mama Juke

Mama Juke (Jon Wert)

Drummer, Bookkeeper, customer service point person

Mama Juke is a gumbo of New Orleans influenced blues, blue-eyed soul, funk, and folk. Actor/singer Elijah Bridges brings elements of bluegrass and rag with his soulful harmonica, acoustic guitar, and voice. Amos Rose is a world traveling multi-instrumentalist who also sings and plays lead Telecaster guitar, and was recently featured by Jazz at Lincoln Center. Brendan O’Grady is an in-demand session musician and fixture on the greater New York scene since his roots growing up in Yonkers. Drummer Jon Wert is a sought-after musician, collaborating with a wide variety of artists in the jazz, rock, pop production shows and songwriter worlds.

The band has original music as well as a crowd-pleasing repertoire of cover songs, some well known, others more obscure gems. They've held a weekly residency at East Village Social, a St. Marks music hub in the heart of the East Village, since September 2015. The Village Voice once described their performance as "a party volcano!" They are known for bringing an energetic, uplifting show that engages any audience. The combination of wide genre variety, excellent vocal harmonies, dazzling instrumentalism and years of experience playing together is what always gets a crowd on their feet at a Mama Juke show!

    Mama Juke made our wedding reception into the party of our dreams! They were so easy to plan with and truly brought the most incredible vibes to the dance floor. I can’t recommend them enough!!

  • Wonderful band to work with!

    We booked Mama Juke for our 9/24/2022 wedding and they did not disappoint. I can’t say I wasn’t nervous, as they didn’t have any reviews posted yet, but Jon was very helpful in addressing all our concerns and they kept our guests entertained and dancing all night long! They learned our first dance song- Golden Hour by Kacey Musgraves and put their own flair to it, which we loved. They are such a fun mix of rock, jazz, bluegrass, country and played a good mix of songs for all ages. I would also recommend listening to some of their original songs and including them in your day, my husband and I were so happy we did. :) I want to have another wedding just so we can have them play again!
