JJ Grey & Mofro (formerly billed just as Mofro) is a Southern rock/soul/funk/blues jam band from Jacksonville, Florida composed of JJ Grey (vocals, electric piano, acoustic guitar and electric guitar, harmonica), Andrew Trube (electric guitar and slide guitar), Anthony Farrell (Hammond organ), Anthony Cole (drums), Dennis Marion (trumpet), Jeff Dazey (tenor saxophone) and Todd Smallie (bass guitar). The early days of Mofro can be traced back to the mid-nineties when John “JJ” Grey and Daryl Hance signed with a United Kingdom label and played shows in Europe as Mofro Magic.
Grey and Hance met in their hometown of Jacksonville, Florida while working for an air conditioning company and developed a friendship through music. The deal with the record label in London fell through, and Grey and Hance returned to their native Jacksonville and formed Mofro, then signed with Fog City Records in 2001. The name “Mofro” was coined by JJ Grey as an explanation of the sound that the band made. Grey says the word was originally a nickname that a co-worker gave him and Grey adopted it as the band name because it “sounded southern.” Grey later changed the band name to “JJ Grey & Mofro” when his grandmother asked him if he was ashamed to use his own name.
