RE: "There used to be a club downtown Columbus called Club Lavanna and he (Jo Jo) used to perform there .... "

That must have been some venue back in the 60's as the likes of James & Bobby Purify, Oscar Toney Jr, Bobby Moore & Rhythm Aces also played the place back then.

RIP, Jo Jo...one thing I find a little odd. It says that he joined Chuck Willis as a backing singer in the early 1960's...that would be one nice trick if he did that, as Willis passed away in 1958!!

 

Best,

 

Mark
