Roxi Burgess

JoJo Burgess, best known as the charismatic front-man of Hokie Joint, has recently launched the Help Roxi Walk appeal through Facebook on behalf of his lovely daughter Roxanne who has been diagnosed with spastic-diplegia cerebral-palsy in her legs and may never walk because of it. 

Since learning of Roxi’s disability the family have discovered a revolutionary treatment known as SDR, which is a treatment that cuts select nerves and releases the spasticity (tightness) in the legs, making moving movement much easier.

JoJo and family are hoping to raise £50,000 by Roxi’s 3rd birthday (8th August 2014) to allow Roxi to go for treatment at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. – The world-leaders in this surgery.


JoJo has had a great response from the Blues World already, with notable artists including Ian Siegal, Dave Arcari, Dale Storr, Giles Robson, Matt Taylor, Todd Sharpville, Jon Amor and JoJo’s Hokie bandmate’s all offering their services to record a charity single cover of the Iconic ‘Meet Me in St.Louis’ made famous by Judy Garland.
