This year's Blackwater Sol Revue, which in addition to JJ Grey & MOFRO features reggae legends Toots and the Maytals, Hill Country Revue (featuring members of North Mississippi Allstars), The Lee Boys and Nervous Turkey, will also host Pre and Post-Festival shows at a local venue.

Following the enormous success of 2007's Country Ghetto, JJ Grey & MOFRO hit the studio this summer and have emerged with a new album. Orange Blossoms (August 26, Alligator Records) is a collection of down-home, soul-shaking music produced by long-time cohort Dan Prothero. The album features 12 songs (including 11 Grey originals) inspired by Grey's life experiences and visionary observations. With long-time friend and guitarist Daryl Hance, bassist/organist Adam Scone, drummer Anthony Cole, and the Hercules Horns of saxophonist Art Edmaiston and trumpeter Dennis Marion, Grey moves effortlessly from gospel-tent fervor to Southern-fried rockers to deeply emotional soul. Orange Blossoms is a groove-driven masterpiece fueled by JJ's gritty, smoldering vocals and intense, funk-infused guitar and keyboard work.

JJ Grey & MOFRO are on tour now, dates available here.

Great band. Love their album "Country Ghetto", especially track 2. MOFRO reminds me a bit of Galactic, but with JJ they might be a bit more rounded?
