JJ Grey & Mofro are headed to PNC Pavilion with Blackberry Smoke on Saturday, August 11th! JJ Grey is as genuine as they come, a do-it-yourselfer who is committed to making music that's full of integrity, which is rare in this day and age.
JJ Grey's latest record Ol' Glory, captures the fierceness and intimacy that defines his live performance. Personal, Southern-inspired narratives, along with a sound boasting an eclectic blend of blues, rock, gospel and gritty R&B, have become synonymous with JJ Grey and his incredible band Mofro. He remains an unfettered, blissful performer who sings with a blue-collared spirit over the bone-deep grooves of his compositions.
Onstage, Grey delivers his songs with compassion and a relentless honesty, but perhaps not until Ol’ Glory has a studio record captured what exactly defines a Grey live performance. “I wanted that crucial lived-in feel,” Grey says of Ol’ Glory, and here he hits his mark. On the new album, Grey and his current Mofro lineup offer grace and groove in equal measure, with an easygoing quality to the production that makes those beautiful muscular drum-breaks sound as though the band has set up in your living room.
