JJ Grey & Mofro in Denver w/ Special Guest Luther Dickinson
Known for southern, funky soul music, JJ Grey & Mofro have set out on an ambitious national fall tour in support of their just released studio album, ORANGE BLOSSOMS. Supporting a number of shows on the tour are southern rockers Hill Country Revue, who hail from the fertile soil of North Mississippi and include two of the three musicians in North Mississippi Allstars. JJ Grey & Mofro are pleased to announce that good friend and guitar player Luther Dickinson (also NMA's third member) will join them at The Ogden Theatre on September 27. As if a night of music by JJ Grey & Mofro and Hill Country Revue weren't enough, fans will also be treated to a special mini-set by the blues-rock trio North Mississippi Allstars.

ORANGE BLOSSOMS, the new studio album from Jacksonville, Florida-based guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist/songwriter JJ Grey and his band Mofro, is a masterpiece of down-home, soul-shaking music. From raw, swampy funk to deep soul, blues and rock, JJ Grey and Mofro deliver devastating live and recorded performances. JJ comes from a long tradition of Southern storytellers, and his songs often use the loss of his natural surroundings and the marginalization of Southern culture as a metaphor for universal truths. His multi-textured music overflows with dynamic rhythms and thought-provoking lyrics. Debuting in 2001 with BLACKWATER, following up in 2004 with LOCHLOOSA (both albums reissued by Alligator in 2007), Grey steadily built an intensely loyal following through constant touring. In 2007, with his first Alligator release, COUNTRY GHETTO, Grey reached an even larger audience, doubling both his album sales and his concert attendance. Now, with his new album, ORANGE BLOSSOMS, JJ Grey takes another giant step forward (August 26 on Alligator Records).
