"Thanks so much for your persistence with this thread, or I never would have discovered such a great band!"

I have been posted scores of JJ Grey & Mofro videos at the Gaslight Anthem forum.

Gaslight is a neo-punk band from New Jersey that has kinda transitioned to straight forward rock n roll.  Many of their fans a very young, under 20. Nevertheless, I guessed that some people who like Gaslight would like JJ since many people who like Gaslight also like Springsteen. (There is a Gaslight-Springsteen connection.)

I am spreading JJ's music across the Internet to reach new fans who would otherwise never get to know of JJ or his music.

He asked for suggested songs, so I posted "Everybody's."

After hearing it he said:

[quote="The Angry Johnny Revue"]

That was the most wonderful song I have heard in such a long time. If I wasn't in such a great mood about discovering this band, I would be in tears. Do you know what this song is about?

" I honestly don't think I've liked a recommendation this much since I was introduced to Lucero around this time last year, so thank you once again. Nare Sugar off of Blackwater is one I really enjoy as well."

UPDATE from this fan--who has now turned his dad onto JJ

So I played some stuff to my dad, he loved it. There's a JJ Grey & Mofro all ages show in Philly, about 2 hours from where I live on Friday, and he was on board at such short notice which means he must've really liked it. Then mum announced today she would be away on Friday night so there'd me nobody at home to look after my younger brothers.

So that 13 year old is me. Figured it was about time I showed my face around here. I've been going to rock shows regularly since I was just out of diapers and I can honestly say this is my most anticipated one yet. What makes it so special for me is that it almost coincides with my 14th birthday, so it's funny to think that the best birthday present I've ever gotten was in fact from a total stranger. What a great thing the internet can be!

Thanks for the warm welcome guys! My favourite album is Lochloosa, and my favourite song is Everbody's closely followed by Orange Blossom's, any chance they ever get played live?

OB is a popular song they dew live.  Now Everybody's is rare in the rotation these days.  Would love myself to be able to hear that one live.

Welcome to the family "The Angry Johnny Revue" glad to have you.  Ask any questions you have because someone will know the answer.  Its hard to find any band like this these days, they are special.  They are my Beatles..... So ask away
