JJ Grey & Mofro is the band created by John Higginbotham known as JJ Grey and Daryl Hance when the two formed a strong friendship while working in an air conditioning company. Their band has transformed so much in their career, originating in the 90s. They began as the band called Faith Nation and then became Mofro, which then became the current JJ Grey & Mofro. Despite their authentic southern sound, they first gained the attention of a label in London. Sadly, it fell through. They then returned to their hometown in Jacksonville and signed with Fog City Records. Unfortunately, another devastating event occurred for the band when their members' happened to be in a car crash. Because of this, the band stopped for some time. But the misfortunes did not halt their fire. In 2004, they released the album "Lochloosa." They have been unstoppable ever since.
JJ Grey and Mofro's works combine blues, funk, soul, and rock. Through the songwriting of JJ Grey, all are inspired by his experiences and childhood in Jacksonville. Overall, they produced nine albums.
This year, the southern rock band is on tour. All you fans in Savannah, Georgia, don't miss the chance to see them live. The 24th stop of their tour is at the Johnny Mercer Theatre on Thursday, September 8. Get your tickets now!
