JJ Grey & Mofro: Tour

JJ Grey & Mofro Announce North American Tour
Dates With Derek Trucks And Susan Tedeschi Followed By Two-Month Co-Bill With Shooter Jennings

JJ Grey
JJ Grey & Mofro, the Jacksonville, Florida-based swamp, blues, rock, funk, and soul band, have announced quite a massive North American fall tour. In addition to headlining theatre and festival dates, the band will share dates with blues guitarist/vocalist Susan Tedeschi and guitarist Derek Trucks. Then, in late September and running through November, JJ Grey & Mofro will embark on a co-headlining tour with country rock outlaw Shooter Jennings and special guest Earl Greyhound.

Grey's most recent album, Orange Blossoms, has been hailed by USA Today as "intoxicating North Florida blues-rock, with hints of Memphis, Muscle Shoals and garage-band music." In every song he writes and sings, Grey exudes rocking, funky, melodic front-porch realism. He comes from a long tradition of Southern musical storytellers. His multi-textured music is filled with dynamic rhythms and thought-provoking lyrics. From raw funk to deep soul, blues and rock, JJ and his band, both on CD and live, are simply devastating. Debuting in 2001 with Blackwater, following up in 2004 with Lochloosa, Grey steadily found more and more success. With his two recent releases, 2007's Country Ghetto and 2008's Orange Blossoms, along with non-stop touring, JJ Grey is taking his ever-growing fan base along for the ride of their lives.
