Jomo & The Possum Posse
Sunday, April 7, 2024
Best known for the wildly popular viral video series, “Guy On A Buffalo,” Jomo & The Possum Posse have made a name for themselves with their unique blend of cynicism, dead-eyed soul and anti-machismo honky-tonk.
The band is led by Jomo Edwards, who’s award-wining lyrics tend to skate the line between the sardonic and the arcane. In September 2021, Jomo took home first place in Merlefest’s Chris Austin Songwriting Contest in the General Category.
In 2020, the band was selected “Best of Fest” at FronteraFest for the 3rd year in a row at the long-running Austin Fringe Festival. The band’s original programs highlight their brand of original music and comedy and are shown exclusively at this live theater event.
The band released their third full-length studio album, Take a Number, Satan on November 22nd, 2019 on CD, vinyl and digital. The album has received excellent critical reviews, including an Englishman’s review that described many aspects of the album as “fine.” The band believes “fine” to mean “really good” in British version of the language, but they could be wrong.
