Great Pics, Dave!  I'm amazed at all the pics of JJ with his eyes open.
I don't have that kind of luck but then I am not a professional.
Really Nice!!

Figured I should check in briefly and let everyone know I'm alive!  I slept 41 out of 48 hours on Sunday and Monday.  I had all intentions of coming home today and posting my review but just woke up after a 6 1/2 hour NAP.  I guess my body needs it - just what did y'all do to me that night?  Loved meeting everyone and will talk to you soon!

Here's a link to a blog that has a short review of the Bamboo show. http://www.reverbnation.com/c/fr5/label_45450?eid=L45450_7633678_

It explains the reason why JJ was late:
"The (Bamboo Room's) anticipated return finally came last weekend with a trio of great shows highlighted by JJ Grey (of Mofro)'s soulful solo set on Friday. Typical to opening night follies and adding to the storyline, as explained by JJ, he received a call at 5pm that evening regarding details of this gig while roofing his house in the Jacksonville area. Shocked, he leaped from the roof, grabbed his guitar, hopped in his pick-up and contemplated why he thought this show was Saturday as he drove like a mad man to meet his ravenous South Florida fanbase, if just a little late."

Clay, that's Matty B's quick review.  He IS Brotherly Love Productions.  Trophy Wife met him at the bamboo room for a quick sec.  I believe he has a more extensive review coming out in the New Times shortly.  I think he is talking with Dave about using a photo or two.

Clay,
I think that call was his assistant manager. I might be blurring the details a bit, but I think it was a call to shore up his "guest list for tonight."
JJ: "You mean tomorrow."
"No tonight."
JJ: "-hold on a sec."...

...and I think most folks know the timeline of events from there. JJ Flying down I-95, calling airlines and commuter airports to see if he could get a last minute flight along the way to save 20 or 30 minutes, worried as hell that Daytona would be clogged up because of the race, and so on. In the end, he drove like mad the whole way. Pulled into the lot and was on stage within about 5 minutes.

As I understand things, it was a completely innocent yet complex mistake. When the BBR first talked with JJ's camp about playing, I believe initial talks WERE for Saturday night. Obviously, as we all know final plans were made for Friday night. On BOTH sides of the deal, the persons eventually inking the deal were not the ones that initiated the talk. In other words, the BamBoo Room management person that was originally talking Saturday was not the one that booked Friday, and same deal for the JJ camp.

THEN, come Thursday and Friday (gig week), the owner of the BBR (Russel) didn't call JJ because he thought he was already down here with his friends and didn't want to disturb him (Russel, like most who meet JJ, consider him a friend). And JJ's friends thought he was already down with Russell and they didn't want to disturb him. So nobody called.

Considering how many persons were involved, as I type this I can't believe NOBODY made contact with anyone along the way that could have cleared it up. But hell, these things happen. Just last night, Sarah and I were talking about that gig and I said, "it wasn't much later than most blues shows typically go on," which is just the way it seems to go in the biz.

And amazingly, JJ's fans didn't seem to care a lick. It was a great night, and the story just kind of adds to the deal.

The epilogue is something else, too. JJ was up at 7AM in Lake Worth the next morning, on the road at 7-oh-5, and back on that dang roof by lunchtime Saturday. After blabbing post-show, that gave him all of 3 hours of sleep IF he crashed as soon as his head hit the pillow.
