JJ Grey and Mofro The Commonheart atStubbs
Friday, January 18
From the days of playing greasy local juke joints to headlining major festivals, JJ Grey remains an unfettered, blissful performer, singing with a blue-collaredÂ spirit over the bone-deep grooves of his compositions. His presence before an audience is something startling and immediate, at times a funk rave-up, other times a sort of mass-absolution for the mortal weaknesses that make him and his audience human. When you see JJ Grey and his band Mofro liveâ€”and you truly, absolutely mustâ€”the man is fearless.
