BLUES | JJ Grey and Mofro

by

comment

Part band, part creature from the murky Florida swamp, JJ Grey & Mofro has been laying down salty grooves for more than 20 years. Complete with chunky horns and dense harmonies, Grey and his band are known for leaving their audience feeling like their ears just had a hearty meal. Grey's powerful voice is only matched by the grit of his guitar, and both can wail. Inspired by the writing of Jack Kerouac and the music of The Isley Brothers, you can imagine the depth and girth of this band's sound. This is a band that can pull off being both bad to the bone and good for the soul.

JJ Grey & Mofro plays with Freddie & Francine on Wednesday, May 30, at Funk 'N Waffles Music Hall, 204 North Water Street. 8 p.m. $30-$35. rochester.funknwaffles.com; jjgrey.com.
