MNIJM – Voodoo

Yes, his name is really John Michael Rouchell, and the band, My Name Is John Michael, began in 2008 as a solo project and quickly developed into popular band on the New Orleans indie scene. In 2009, MNIJM received critical notice from magazines such as SPIN, who listed them as one of the top acts to see at that year’s CMJ Festival in New York. Since then, MNIJM has racked up some miles, playing festivals such as the NOJ&HF, FQF, Bonnaroo, and SxSW. MNIJM is seven members of excitement who have recorded two CDs as they grow in popularity. Recognized for their New Orleans sound when they’re on the road, MNIJM know how to appeal to both the discriminating listeners of in a New York Club, as well as hitting a stage at a local festival. Which they will do at Voodoo, on Saturday, October 27th, at 9:30pm on the Preservation Hall Stage.
