Alligator recording artists JJ Grey & Mofro
are a superb 7 piece soul, funk R&B Southern Rock with a killer horn section
from Jacksonville, Florida.
Raw passion, deep grooved soul, scintillating solo’s, a killer horn section topped by a white boy sould singer with one of the critically acclaimed albums of the year, JJ GREY & MOFRO embodies all these elements.
From Jacksonville, Florida, Alligator recording artist JJ Grey has a voice as tough and gritty as the lumberyard he used to work in and his take on Southern boogie, swamp rock, soul and Rhythm & Blues is proudly old fashioned with echoes of Tony Joe White.
JJ Grey & The Mofro is the best 7 piece rock/blues/soul/r&b band you will ever see. If Tommy Castro set the standards last year, JJ Grey’s new album ‘Georgia Warhorse’ (featuring Derek Trucks, Toots Hibbert) raises the bar further. The live show is just about everything you would wish form a southern band that fuses rock with plenty of soul, groove-heavy blues, and dirty, infectious funk. Quites simply JJ takes hold of his southern musical roots and makes age-old ideas sound fresh.
“JJ is a balance of wildness and cool, southern swamp rock with undercurrents of Memphis soul” New York Times
“A world-beating blend of Southern rock, blues and Florida swamp soul.” Billboard
He’s played with the likes of B.B. King, The Allman Brothers Band, The Black Crowes, Los Lobos, Jeff Beck, Ben Harper, Lenny Kravitz, and toured with Booker T. Jones, Mavis Staples etc, but after 10 years on the road and his best ever album, JJ Grey is about to make a huge name for himself. Don’t miss!
