As suggested by a recent post-er, if anyone knows any bands they think that Mofro fans would like, let's post them on this thread.

I wish the cheap-ass message board software I'm using would allow for links on a post, but it won't. So go ahead and post links to other sites if you want, everybody just keep in mind that you'll need to copy and paste the link into your browser window.

One more note...although ain't nothing wrong with a post like "Gov't Mule rules!" or "Widespread Panic is just that!," I'd rather see some stuff that's more unknown to most of us. (If you're a Mofro fan and don't know who Gov't Mule is, what the hell are YOU smoking?)

Let's all share our wealth of musical knowledge, old and new!

Check out Richard Johnston (richardjohnston.com) - Foothill Stomp is an amazing album. Saw him at the Doheny Blues Festival in 2003 (same festival I'm seeing JJ at this Saturday). He plays a guitar he built as well as his one-man drumset when playing live. Honed his licks on the streets of Memphis...

Ya'll should check out The Gourds and Old Crow Medicine Show.

The Gourds have become known for their cover of Snoop Dogg's Gin and Juice, which was circulating the internet as being done by Phish or Primus for years. Nonetheless, A kick-ass band who has flown under the radar for a long time now. Check their Shinebox and Blood of the Ram albums, amongst all their others.

Old Crow plays ol' timey music with a twist. Great energy and highly talented group of guys. They play a lot of original tunes and they'll break out some traditional folk/bluegrass tunes that you would never think of, especially for a group of young guys. There self-titled album O.C.M.S album is classic and there latest, Big Iron World is great as well.

Look up Ben Prestage - probably the best place to find him is to search him on myspace. I've seen him a few times at the Bamboo Room in Lake Worth (Yeah, your post on the Bamboo closing bummed me out royally).

Ben is a 1-man show, a real treasure to see live.

Cool shit kids. I'll check 'em all out. For some reason, I just like the name Northern Lights the best though.

Got a couple to add myself. We went to Tropical Heatwave, an outdoor music fest, couple weeks back. Saw Amanda Shaw, a 17 year old fiddle player that burned up the stage. She crosses genre's, but it's all based on Nawlins roots music.

The other band to see/hear is Groovesect. These are 5 Cracka's, also from Nawlins, that can play some serious funk, and have a good time while doing it. The bass player is one damn fine mother-plucker.

Lastly, I forgot to post this one earlier, but Inca Maya is a Jax based band that a lot of Florida fans know about. Their lead singer/guitarist--Matt Grondin--sits in w/MOFRO in Florida often, and the man can play. His sweeping makes me stop dead in my tracks with my mouth wide open. Last time it happened, some chick thought I was in some sort of catatonic state and threw water in my face.

O.A.R. They have been around for over 11 years and I discovered this band a few years back and could not belive that they wasnt just as popular as Led Zepplin or any other classic rock band from the 70s.
I have seen them 12 times in 5 different states. Me and Mottoboo will be setting out on a 4 show road trip to see them in a few weeks....shhhhh the girlfriend still dont know. Anyway about two years ago I dugup some live footage and posted it to youtube some of the videos have been watched two hundred thousands times. Also check out an old Adam Sandler concert. not a stand up show but a rock concert...its real good.
there are over twenty videos on there

I'll put in another plug for the Drive-By Truckers, pretty much my other favorite besides Mofro. Also Im an old timer Phish fan so these days I like some Perpetual Groove to give me my psychedelic rock fix.

Oh and of course, WEEN. Kind of hard to describe if yer not familiar, they've been around forever and throw DOWN live with some truly unique tunes.

Have you guys checked out "Zappa Plays Zappa"? I guess you gotta like Frank, and thats definitely an aquired taste, but his son Dweezil RIPS, and has a band together right now with some old Zappa alumni playing his Dad's tunes and they are TEARIN shit up.

And of course this is the obligatory MOFRO fan's response but THE LEGENDARY JC's blow me away every time I see them. Eugene is a true entertainer. Aaaand to round it out, as mentioned in another thread, and on display next weekend in St Aug, NERVOUS TURKEY lays down the gritty gritty, don't miss them...

I'll give another shout for The Black Keys. I went and saw these two guys off of a recommendation from a friend in Asheville back in 2006. I had a similar addiction to them right off that I had from my first Mofro show. The raw and gritty sound they pull off is unbelievable and you have to step back for a second and realize that this is a two man band. Auerbach seems to just channel something special out of that guitar.

I'm not a fan of their newest album "Attack and Release" as much as some of their older stuff. As with a lot of bands it is hard to capture that grit on record. They went for a more produced sound it seems on this album.

Check out the albums "ThickFreakness" or "The Big Come Up"

I'm going to see them back in Asheville at The Orange Peel where I first saw them in October and I can't wait!

Back door Slam is a great up and coming band. Blues trio of 21 yr old kids from the UK. Insane guitar skills by Davy Knowles lead singer/guitarist. I highly recommend you check them out, they will be opening for Gov't Mule during Mule's fall tour.

Black Keys also rock. Two guys from ohio. Very loud, very hard rockin. great stuff.

Of course I love me some North Miss. Allstars and Dave Matthews Band always puts on a great show on a more mainstream level. RIP LeRoi Moore.

On that note...saw Amos Lee a few weeks ago in St. Pete @ the State. First off...super venue...been seeing shows there since I was 12. Next, if you dig Amos on his studio work, his live stuff is amazing. The only difference, if any, is for the best...i.e. - MOFRO. Amazing presence and warmth..the real deal. Worth the $ to see him these days. Would LOVE to get a copy but didn't see any mics...not sure that the State is down with that...though hopefully I'm wrong.

If you like Mofro, check out a guy called Eric Lindell. He's from the west coast but spent a lot of time in New Orleans and now resides in Pensacola I believe. The guy's got a real soulful blues voice with a dash of Nawlins funk! I heard he's great live too and I'm waiting to catch him when he comes my neck of the woods. He's got two CD's on iTunes.

I know this is an old thread, but I went to a kick ass show last night at the historic Ryman Auditorium. DBT just started their new tour. They are touring with The Hold Steady from Brooklyn. If you get a chance, catch these guys. I was very impressed. By the way, 28 days till the boys come to Nashville but who is counting. Also, JJ is doing an acoustic set at Grimey's record shop the day of the show. What a perfect holiday weekend. Football and Mofro equals damn good times!

Some friends of mine from South Florida that do bluegrass versions of Dead tunes....fantastic stuff. Just so ya know, all the above bands are on the LMA except Pierce Edens & The Dirty Work, but you can see some of their videos on you tube.

I must say, this is one of my favorite threads. I love killing time digging for new (to me) bands/music, and to have all you guys who truly know what's up throwing some of your favorites out there shortens my route to the good stuff. No matter how much I hear and think I know of, there's always something out there that I've never even heard of that absolutely kicks ass and takes names. Thanks for all the suggestions/recommendations. I hope we can keep this thread running for a long time to come.

Going back to the seventies, Delaney and Bonnie, were a good group. Clapton even toured with them. Discovered them while doing a search for Otis Redding clips on you tube.

Clay,

Thanks for the drop down menu, made this thread extremely easy to find... here is two to add to this list.

Gomez - They are playing with the guys on the run through Texas. An old college buddy of mine loves this band. They are from England, alot of acoustic, good music.

Tim Gearan - as Blues as it gets - great on guitar and his lyrics are something else. From the Boston area and pretty much plays in just that area from what I understand.

Other than Mofro, some of the other bands Im into are:
Drive-by Truckers, North Mississippi Allstars, Yonder Mtn. Ben Harper, Charlie Hunter, Galactic, G. Love, Garage A Trois, Dispatch, Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk), Moonshine Still, Pearl Jam, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, The Lee Boys, Tishamingo, and Umphrey's McGee.

I saw G. Love recently and the guy who openned for him was named Eric Hutchinson. He plays the guitar and piano. Hes kinda more mainstream than most of the other stuff I listen to but, he swung back around on his own tour and I caught his show. He brings alot of energy and his songs are pretty good.

Welcome turtleman and Otayhombre!

I thought of a couple more bands that are easy on my ears:

Canned Heat
Cat Stevens

And I was listening to some of my older CD's this weekend and I heard a song I ain't heard in a while and thought it would make for a cool cover song for Mofro, "Dear Mr. Fantasy" by Traffic. Love the harp in that song........

"My My, Hey Hey" No Stan I'm not from Tampa (I live close to Athens). I snatched the 04.07.07 show from Skipper's and absolutely digged them. Thanks again JDude! I've never seen them but would love too; so whenever they come through GA or I happen to be somewhere close in proximity to where they are playin', I definitely plan to attend.

Another band I thoroughly enjoy seeing is Abbey Road Live. They're on the road a lot now so if you get chance to see them, do. You won't be disappointed.

Flogging Molly is always a good show =)
I saw Cornmeal last fall, I was really impressed with their muscianship, I would definitely see them again.

Hey ya'll, had to revive this old thread.

I have been jamming out to The Band of Heathens non-stop for 2 weeks now. They are out of Texas. Check out their Abbey Theatre show on the Archive, and their Austin City Limits show on YouTube.

TN_Cracka thanks for breathing new life into this old thread. I'm always looking for new artists to check out, I'll make sure to look up The Band of Heathens.

Lately, I have been on a classic rock kick and have listened to The Band's The Last Waltz so many times, I'm surprised the mp3 of it hasn't deteriorated!

So we saw Tao Rodriguez-Seeger Band at Tipitina's Sunday night when they opened for Mofro. These guys were great! Tao is Pete Seeger's grandson (and also founder of The Mammals), and I was really blown away! Always a nice surprise when you really enjoy the opening act - wish they'd come on tour with Mofro!

I'm originally from Ohio, so yeah, I'll say the Black Keys.

I've lived in Lake Worth, Florida for 30 plus years, so yeah, I'll say Ben Prestage.

But, I have recently become a fan of 'Viva Le Vox' from Delray Beach, Florida. Some people have described them as "a hillbilly zombie circus" or "a creedence breakdown in the middle of a tim burton nightmare, a vaudevillian honky tonk gunfight".
I'll just say that they are a unique, entertaining, voodoo swamp, tattooed freak show psychobilly quartet that will leave you questioning what you just witnessed. They Do Not play the type of music I would ordinarily listen to but I found myself sucked into the experience.

Listening to iTunes doesn't come close to their Live Shows. I photographed a recent Everglades Benefit show @ Propaganda in Lake Worth. Also on the bill was Grant Peeples, Valerie C. Wisecracker, & Everymen. Check this link for the photos http://daek10d.zenfolio.com/p954260701

Most of you know who Ben Harper is ( I hope). Partial to him because he is who I went to see at the HOB in Myrtle Beach when I saw Mofro for the first time. Glad I went.

add another vote for Drive-By Truckers. Also check out the solo stuff from Patterson Hood of DBT.
And, while I'm blowing the DBT's horn, former DBT Jason Isbell and his band the 400 Unit have a couple of really solid discs out.
If you like the blues rock stuff, check out Indigenous, a band from South Dakota that was originally made up of 2 brothers, their sister and their cousin. Now it's just the eldest brother on guitar and vox with a new band, but is still solid as a rock. Mato Nanji can really play, regardless of who's backing him.
And I also recommend Fleet Foxes. Cool mix of old folk and more of a modern feel. Their harmonies are really cool, and there is some serious guitar playing going on as well.
And then there's DMB, Ted Nugent, the original Van Halen, Hendrix, John Lee Hooker, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Rush, Son Seals, Sun Volt-The Jayhawks/Wilco (once one band, now two) I could go on forever, but I'll end my list there

Just saw an LA-based band called Truth& Salvage Company open up for the Crowes last November.  Good, rootsy, The Band-ish jammers.  If you're into free stuff, you can download four free tunes here:

I'm not familiar with him but I checked him out for a coupla minutes Bigdog. Liked him well enuf to go back and listen some more when I gots me more time.

Here's a playlist/player from his new album.  I like track 10 "$8 Bottle of Wine."  It's got a 'jooky' sound to it. Y'all check him out.  He's touring some of the usual haunts in the SE right now.

I've really enjoyed the new Black Keys album called Brothers.  Very soulful.  Recorded at Muscle Shoals.  good stuff.

Also have followed the band Delta Moon.  A similar sound to Mofro.  Very swampy rock blues.

Cadillac Sky.  They dropped a new album this month that's really good.  It's called Letters In The Deep.  I think y'all would really like it.  They have some of the songs from the album here...
http://www.myspace.com/cadillacsky

This guy is really good too.  His name is Patrick Sweany.  He has a new album coming out this year I think it's called That Old Southern Draw...or something to that effect.
