MML (MusicMediumLive) is live music co-op which bring unsigned artists and great live music venues together – mentoring up and coming artists and working with artists from all over the world.
What is the Jimmie Lee’s Juke Joint project? Jimmie Lee’s Juke Joint a wooden mobile venue – deep south style which is an homage to the late grandfather of Tamala who started MML a few years back. Her grandfather built and ran a Juke Joint on the cotton plantation where he was raised in the 40’s and 50’s. We have recreated the Juke Joint’s of the Deep South with all the sights and sounds of the downtrodden and the high spirited. The Juke Joint comprises of a full stage/sound equipment that will be able put on full live band gigs. It is the first Juke Joint of any kind in Ireland – and is a throw back to the days of the working man’s entertainment which can be enjoyed by all ages who attend this venue.
We recently had our debut at Knockanstockan Festival 2012 to great success and many a smiling face and also some soul food was had by all. After this amazing experience Jimmie Lee’s Juke Joint was invited to bring “The Shack” to the Electric Picnic 2012 – we’ve had a blast. The artists that played with us in the Juke Joint were all so talented with a variety of different music influences. Presently, Jimmie Lee’s shack is having a much needed siesta for the winter – but we’ll be rolling ol’ Jimmie back out for festivals 2013. Presently, Jimmie’s has started some home turf gigs in venue’s around Dublin such as Sweeney’s and now are so delighted to bring that vibe and energy to Whelan’s Main Room as well.
Our acts comprise of different types of bands, musicians and singer-songwriters and just plain anyone out there that has real talent and passion for original and unique music. So come and join us for some Jimmie Lee’s Juke Joint fun!
See Ya’ll There!!
