Southern soul swamp-rockers JJ Grey & Mofro will perform at Taft Theatre on January 27 in support of their celebrated release Ol’ Glory (Provogue Records/Mascot Label Group). The album features the soulful blend of blues, rock, gospel and gritty R&B which have become synonymous with the band. The New York Times, Garden & Gun, USA Today and many more have praised Ol’ Glory for its personal, Southern-inspired narratives.
The Wall Street Journal said, “It’s an inviting collection of soulful rock ’n’ roll with a funky, down-home Southern feel…” Relix called the album’s title track “a gripping, soul-baring, ad-libbed, kneel-down-and-testify force field of funk sure to be a concert favorite…” See more press highlights HERE.
JJ Grey’s intensely charismatic live performances have captivated audiences at some of the largest festivals in the world including Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, North Sea Festival and Fuji Rock.Southern Living said, “Grey’s stage performances are incendiary, and always worth the price of admission.” For a sense of Grey’s commitment to building powerful musical moments, watch his goosebump-inducing performance of “The Sun Is Shining Down” for OurVinyl Sessions HERE.
JJ Grey is as genuine as they come — a do-it-yourselfer who is committed to making music that’s full of integrity. In this day and age, that’s a rare thing.
