From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

MOFRO is a Soul/Funk/R&B/Blues/southern Rock band from Jacksonville, Florida composed of JJ Grey (vocals, electric piano, acoustic guitar and electric guitar, harmonica), Daryl Hance (electric guitar and slide guitar), Adam Scone (Hammond Organ), and Anthony Cole (drums). George Sluppick (drums) left the band, having spent 5 years with Mofro and anchoring the drums for the first 3 records, in early April, 2008. He was replaced by Anthony „AC“ Cole from Orlando; Cole’s most recent work has been with Orlando’s Legendary JC’s and for renowned jazz musician Sam Rivers as part of his Sam Rivers Trio. Cole made his debut with MOFRO at the Wanee Festival in North Florida in mid-April ‘08.

For the 2007 tour, (beginning in early Feb, ‘07) Dennis Marion (trumpet), and Art Edmaiston (tenor saxophone) joined up with JJ Grey & Mofro as the „Hercules Horns“ and continue to be a part of the line-up. They will also be on the new album coming out in Fall ‘08.

MOFRO’s debut album, „Blackwater“ was named one of the best records of the decade by amazon.com.

MOFRO has worked with producer / engineer Dan Prothero since their first studio outing, „Blackwater“, released in 2001 on Prothero’s label Fog City Records.

JJ Grey (b. 1967) is a huge Otis Redding fan, and he frequently sings a tribute to him during their shows. He also credits his musical chops to Tony Joe White, Bill Withers, Donny Hathaway, and many of the classic R&B artists. They describe their music as „front porch soul;“ it varies from raw bluesy/funk to raucous rhythm and blues—a mix that defies any single genre classification.

    I'm not sure why they have completely different songs than JJ Grey & Mofro, but I definitely prefer these songs.

    If you haven't heard, Adam Scone has left JJ Grey & Mofro. That's the bad news. The good news is that Anthony Ferrell and Andrew Trube from Greyhounds are joining up to bring their funky bass and organ sounds to the band. There's lots of chatter on the JJ Grey & Mofro fansite: http://www.mofrofans.com/board/board_topic/5292004/420522.htm

    Hell yeah, that new album is great. I saw them play at the Blackwater Sol Revue, where they featured a bunch of songs. As soon as I got home I had to get the album. . Only problem with the show was that they had back up singers, brass, and strings. Great for albums, but not quite the MOFRO I fell in love with.

    No matter where you live, south, north, east, west, the fuckin' moon, I'm telling you, give Mofro a spin during a cookout, or a summer night overlooking the canal on the porch, creates the absolute perfect atmosphere, these guys are great, and I've yet to meet anyone who thinks otherwise.
