This is the kind of music you listen to while you’re belly-up to a (let’s face it) kind of gross bar, drinking beer and bullshitting with your friends.
When you think of Florida, you don’t always consider it the South. With the sparkle of Miami and the shadow of the Mouse, the fact that most of Florida is honest-to-god country often escapes the rest of us.
When you hear that a funky, soulful blues band is from Florida, that same confusion might hit you at first. Then you hear JJ Grey and Mofro. This is the kind of music you listen to while you’re belly-up to a (let’s face it) kind of gross bar, drinking beer and bullshitting with your friends. Every once in a while, you’ll ask the server, “Who is this band?” Why does it feel like you know them? They are pretty good, aren’t they? | Melissa Cynova
