Thank you for the warm welcome MofroFan1 & Sunshine. I'm happy to be apart of this Mofro forum. Wish you guys could be here with us in Solona Beach, Ca. Hopefully we can run into DT & d.o.e. Can anyone tell me what they look like...female or male?

I'm a long haired guy with some grey, I'm 51 but I look much younger and I'll be the fool spinning like a top. I usually hang in the back of the venue for more dance and spinning space. Since we don't get Mofro out here on the west coast much I may have to get up front at least once tonight. I've seriously thought about moving to the south just so I could see Mofro much more. Rachel and I went to the Wanee Music Festival this year so we could see Mofro. What a treat it was to see JJ play Lochloosa acousticly. All the band members stepped off stage and it was just JJ and his guitar...WOW!! Brought tears to my eyes. It was very cool to see him perform Lochloosa in Florida. Loved it there, so many friendly people camping there at Wanee.

We may travel up the coast tomorrow to see Mofro play at the Filmore, playing that one by ear.

If it's not too late, DT is tall, like 6'3 or 6'4 and he's about 30. d.o.e. is blonde, avg height, avg weight, late 30s and very sexy. In fact, she looks a lot like the person in this pic (...on the right)

Great time last night, it was proof that JJ can rock a show even without his voice. Like the pro he is, he battled through like a Georgia Warhorse and hung out to chat and sign everything put in front of him for well over 100 fans. Sammigrrl, her friend, my ladyfriend and I got the pleasure of talking to JJ last before the venue, which had already closed down, finally said we had to go. JJ really felt bad about not having his voice and the cancelled solo show. They opened with War and JJ missed a note or two to start. He took out his frustration on his guitar then lead into Diyo Dayo. He blew the shit outta his harp and then ca

Sorry about the split posts, I'm posting from my iPod touch, once I get to a real keyboard, I'll tid them up. Just wanted to post a few things that I feel need to be said before then. I digress. After Diyo Dayo was EGIB and JJ started to belt out a few lyrics and nothing came out. He stopped, was obviously frustrated and tried again, nothing came out. He turned and left the stage. Art and Dennis stepped up to belt out some solos, Trube and Anthony followed. In the back you could see JJ frantically going back and forth looking for something win Colin. He came back out with a plastic cup of a familiar liquid and the guys held quiet for a bit.

JJ told the crowd about his voice and how like DOE said, it was being a little bitch. Truth be told, he's been getting his ass kicked on this tour with all the shows, giving it his all, and going from 9,000 ft elevation to sea level, then back up and down. On to the dry desert and out to the coast. He even passed up a chance to surf in order to rest his voice. He said while he has been run into the dirt with his voice, he would still do everything he could to put on a show for us and he sure did. While he wasn't hitting notes he normally does, JJ and the guys really stepped up and rocked it. It was a different vibe but in a good way. I've been waiting to hear Blackwater and excuse my French, but they fucking rocked the shit out of it! Y'all will know what I'm talking about when I post the video of it. I'll post the setlist on the next post. One thing to think of when you are looking at it is, how many bands/musicians do you know that with a blown out voice would play a setlist like this one, hang out, sign, take pictures, chat, and thank you for coming and staying for the show? Well, I can only think of one and that is because I was there. We are damn lucky to be fans of JJ and the guys, because they are no doubt, a band, a show, shit, an event like no other. DOE could not have said it any better, JJ Grey & Mofro kick ass in every sense of the phrase.

Finally, I have a ton of pics and video from the past week that I will post when I get home and sort through it all. It's been a week I will never forget, not only the caliber of the performances, but meeting everyone and hanging out with the guys was more than I could have ever imagined. The time of my life, it seems to be a common theme everytime I get the chance to see JJ Grey and Mofro, I can't wait until I get yet another chance to see the guys in Chicago. I have no doubt that another unforgettable experience is bound to be had.

Wow. Y'all did a great job at making me feel like I missed something. Indeed what other band would do what they did and rocked the house no matter what. JJ--and all the guys--are class acts man. I'll defer to DOE on the "he's so cute" comment, I think I speak for the majority of guys that we don't see JJ as "cute" in any sense of the word. But she sure as hell is a professional and a compassionate one at that.

Damn, even with his voice being "a little bitch" they still did 17 songs. I've been keeping track of the avg club venue setlists for the past year-ish and the number is 17.  (They been stretching an extra song or 2 in on this tour.)

It sounds like everybody had a blast and it's so cool that the Mofro community stretches from coast to coast!

LOL!! I concur with you DOE, totally!!

 

Thank you DT and Doe for your detailed reviews and stories and for also showing my buddy Rob a great time!   He said he had such a great time with you guys and all the songs about Florida hit home with him and he says he is going to make a trip back home soon.  I think I will tell him to go when Our Boys hit Skippers!!

 

This band never ceases to amaze me with their talents and dedication to their fans.
