Don’t Miss a Soulful Saturday Lineup at Terminal 5February 20th, 2015
JJ Grey (vocals, piano, guitar and harmonica) grew up outside Jacksonville, Fla., with twin interests in surfing and music. That second one eventually blossomed into a band— currently with Anthony “AC” Cole (drums), Jeff Dazey (sax), Anthony Farrell (organ), Dennis Marion (trumpet), Todd Smallie (bass) and Andrew Trube (guitar)—playing a stew of North Florida influences: country, blues, gospel, funk, R&B and Southern rock, turning JJ Grey & Mofro (above, doing “99 Shades of Crazy” for KINK FM) into cult favorites in the process, thanks to their gritty soulful performances. The band’s most recent full-length, Ol’ Glory (stream it below), comes out next week, but you can probably hear some of the new tunes on Saturday at Terminal 5. And as an added bonus, Bayou soul singer Marc Broussard and local rockers the London Souls open the show.
