If you want to hear what a sticky hot evening in the heat of a Florida summer sounds like – listen to JJ Grey & Mofro. Take the song, “Fireflies” – when JJ poses the question “where did all the fireflies go?” you can almost feel the thick southern air and on “Lochloosa,” JJ waxes poetic about the Florida swampland he calls home.
JJ Grey’s music reflects his deep love of the slow-paced patch of dirt where he grew up and still lives on a chicken farm. He brings that southern blues out of the swamps and mixes it with some funky soul to give his music a blues/rock edge that stands out from the crowd.
JJ Grey’s legendary live performances are a must-see and his tour almost never reaches the California coast, so don’t miss this opportunity to experience JJ Grey & Mofro at the 20th Annual Doheny Blues Festival on Sunday, May 21st. www.dohenybluesfestival.com/tickets
