Formed in 1990, the band consists of vocalist JJ Grey, guitarist Andrew Trube, Hammond organ player Anthony Farell, Drummer Anthony Cole, Trumpeter Dennis Marion, Bass player Todd Smallie and Saxophonist Jeff Dazey. Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida, the band signed its first contract with Fog Records in 2001. At that time, the band was known as Mofro, and they released their debut album, Blackwater in the same year. They changed their name to JJ Grey & Mofro in 2007 with the release of their third album, Lochloosa.
Their music has been described as a fusion of blues, funk, rock, and soul. Most of their songs reflect on the region where JJ Grey grew up in Jacksonville, Florida. Their songwriting style is inspired by the likes of Jim Reeves and Big Bad John and southern rock acts such as Lynyrd Skynyrd and Jerry Reed. JJ Grey & Mofro are almost always on the road with their tour scheduling and have played at famous festivals such as the Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, All Good Festival and Wakarusa. Fans are always in awe of their live performances and love the band for more for live performances than their studio songs.
