JJ Grey and Mofro
August 14, 2014
Over the course of six albums on Alligator Records and a decade of touring, JJ Grey's grimy blend of front porch soul and down-home storytelling has taken him around the world and back again. Beating the streets on nearly every continent, he and his band Mofro have sewn a continuous thread of laying-it-on-the-line shows that move folks to dance and at times to tears.
The New York Times describes the music of JJ Grey and Mofro as a mix of "impassioned singing, riff-based Southern rock, cold-blooded swamp funk and sly Memphis soul."
