FRONT PORCH SOUL & LIVE “JOOKHOUSE” FUNK from the Blackwater region of North Florida…

MOFRO is led by singer / songwriter JJ Grey who grew up outside Jacksonville, developing a taste for raw grooves and living a life to inspire his soulful lyrics. Blackwater, Mofro’s debut release on Fog City Records, maintains the label’s focus on musicianship, fat tones and good times, deepened by insights into a place and culture that is slipping away with Florida’s steady march to “progress”.

Guest drummer George Sluppick (on loan from Robert Walter’s 20th Congress) says: “I feel like we’ve connected with each other on a very deep level… it’s funky and groovin’, like fried catfish and turnip greens… it’s uplifting and spiritual, like grits and bacon… it’s Southern to the core. My peoples!”

Special guest: Robert Walter (Fog City recording artist and founding member of The Greyboy Allstars)

Recommended side dish: Pan fried Cracker Meal shrimp with hush puppies.
