BLUESFEST TOURING PRESENTS
JJ GREY & MOFRO
“A masterful performance” – Oxford American
Bluesfest Touring welcomes JJ Grey & Mofro back to Australia for a rare appearance in April 2015.
JJ Grey remains an unfettered, blissful performer, singing with a blue-collared spirit over the bone-deep grooves of his compositions. When you see JJ Grey and his band Mofro live—and you truly, absolutely must—the man is fearless.
Grey began touring as Mofro in the late '90s, with a lyrical directness, and backbeats that crossed Steve Cropper with George Clinton, as his fan base grew from a modest group of loyal initiates into something resembling a national coalition.
Grey’s new release Ol’ Glory captures the fierceness and intimacy that 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 line-up 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.
His only Australian performance outside of Bluesfest, this is a rare and true treat for Sydney blues fans – don’t miss it!
