The other day at work, the "Blues" channel on the satellite radio they play in the clean room was on. Just as I was getting ready to leave for the day, I hear the oh so familiar harmonica strains of Country Ghetto starting. I was about floored. Other than 3 or 4 people who I introduced to the boys, I think I was the only one who knew who it was.
That is honestly the first time I have ever heard JJ & Mofro played on a radio that wasn't under my control or an NPR station. Other than on TV shows (We've heard songs on House, Deadliest Catch and on 2 episodes of All Access: Mayweather/Canelo that I am aware of off the top of me head), where is the most surprising place you've heard Mofro music playing?

  • Mississippi - Qwest Center Arena (or whatever they call it now) in Omaha before a Springsteen concert
  • Ho Cake cover - performed by Lil Donnie & the Groovetones, I believe a Fargo ND bar band, at Fargo Blues Festival 2011-ish
  • Warhorse/Hide & Seek/Gotta Know/Lullaby - 1st Avenue Speakeasy, Newton Iowa (I may have had something to do with that; insert winky doohickey here)

Actually, KGGO 94.9 FM in Des Moines (streaming KGGO.com) plays a lot of the band on the Sunday morning Roadhouse show, probably every week after This River came out.  And if you request some, you will most likely get it.

And I've been hearing a lot more of the band over the house PA's at other concerts and blues festivals.  At the NMAS show in Des Moines two nights ago, This River was played in its entirety a couple of times, and with a little Country Ghetto thrown in, the band was played exclusively in between acts and after the show, as well as maybe the final 20 minutes before the opening act.
