This is the kind of stuff that brings us back. Back to our youths, growing up in the swampy backwoods of Florida, fishing off the dock and jamming to Soul and Blues. Was that us or the man himself, JJ Grey? Listen to the passion and gritty soul in JJ’s voice or to his new album, Georgia Warhorse, and you’d swear you were there too. In this album, JJ collaborates with his musical hero, Toots Hibbert whom he calls “the greatest soul singer I’ve ever heard” and with Derek Trucks, guitarist from a little band called The Allman Brothers Band as well as his own Derek Trucks Band. He also refers to Trucks as “the greatest guitarist I’ver ever seen,” so we can be sure a whole lot of love and a disgusting overabundance of talent has been crammed into Georgia Warhorse.
JJ Grey & Mofro have played countless festivals in their prolific years including that top-notch Austin City Limits Festival. He’s opened for and played alongside some of Soul and Southern Rock’s legends, as he becomes something of a legend himself. JJ Grey & Mofro are coming to La Zona Rosa this Friday for what will undoubtedly be an unforgettable performance. Opening the night at 8PM is That 1 Guy. That’s his name. He’s an incredibly talented and unique…err… player of instruments. Specifically, the Butt Machine. See what we mean here:
