About JJ Grey & Mofro
The JJ Grey & Mofro music sensation would
kick off in the late 90s in Jacksonville, Florida, one of the music cultural capitals of the American south. The band would
be fronted by leadman and MC of cool JJ Grey, the one of a kind instrumentalist who handles lead vocals, guitar, harmonica,
and keyboards. Backing JJ Grey is his trusted assortment of hardcore jam session musicians, including master guitarist Andrew
Trube, organist Anthony Farrell, percussionist Anthony Cole. The band's signature flair is bestowed by the unique musical
placements of trumpeter Dennis Marion, saxophonist Edmaiston, and certified bass slapper Todd Smallie. The band's well rounded
sound and ensemble cast is a rare phenomenon on the music scene today, making JJ Grey & Mofro one of the premier jam bands
in existence today with an authentic and dynamic sound that's been lighting up crowds across the world for nearly two decades.
Grey & Mofro used to perform exclusively under the monikers of just Mofro or Mofro Magic, building up a name for themselves
on the European dance jam scene that dominated the late 90s. The band would have a fallout with their London based label,
and JJ Grey would make the trek back to Florida to restart his music project from scratch. The band would incorporate local
influences into their music, immediately ingraining themselves as starlets of the Florida music scene that would be the jumping
off point for the astronomical beginning of their US based music career. The band would spend the early 00s with Fog City
Records, with a deep focus on the collision of nature and industry that would inform their song and lyric writing.
band quickly outgrew the local focus of Fog City Records and signed onto the Alligator label in 2007. The band's musical focus
would shift to a more rock and roll and traditional funk sound, and they would officially perform under the alias JJ Grey
& Mofro. Heavily influenced by traditional southern rock, JJ Grey & Mofro would court guest spots on their work from
some of the most celebrated rock artists of the last four decades, including The Allman Brothers Band and Toots and The Maytals.
numerous lineup changes over the years, JJ Grey & Mofro have retained the core of their signature sound while at the same
time growing and maturing their sounds over the years. Described as a delightful mixture of funk rock and hearty blues, JJ
Grey & Mofro masterfully blends classic rock foundations with addictive funk blues sensibilities. Now with eight albums
and counting, the JJ Grey & Mofro music train is showing no signs of slowing down as they continue to record hit album
after hit album and light up concert venues all across the world.
The band's 2001 debut
would wow and amaze music fans and critics alike. The album dropped on Fog City Records and full under the production tutelage
of visionary Dan Prothero. The album introduced a fresh and dynamic sound into the funk jam movement, gaining it a four star
rating from AllMusic and various recognitions as standout recording of the year. The album spawned a variety of foundational
JJ Grey & Mofro jams, including "Blackwater", "Lazy Fo Acre", "Whitehouse" and "Florida".
The band' followup album,
Lochloosa, would be another success despite a three year gap after the band's debut. Various Mofro band members had suffered
a serious car accident in the years after their debut, which heavily slowed down Lochloosa's production while giving them
time to recover. The album again was produced by Dan Prothero, and again managed a four star rating from AllMusic. The album
would be carried by a flurry of diverse hits including "Six Ways From Sunday", "Fireflies", "Lochloosa", and "Pray For Rain".
Many of the band's tracks and albums are named after Florida landmarks, including their second album (named
after Lake Lochloosa).
The band hits the festival tour circuit every summer, heading out to the biggest festivals from
Austin City Limits in Texas to Bonnaroo in Tennessee.
