Title cut from live DVD/CD. Over the course of five studio albums and thousands of live shows in the U.S. and abroad, JJ has emerged from the backwoods of Florida to perform on concert stages across the U.S., Canada, Europe, Japan and Australia. Now, with Brighter Days, the galvanizing power of a JJ Grey & Mofro concert has finally been captured on film and CD. The 78-minute CD and 2-hour DVD were recorded at Atlanta's Variety Playhouse in January 2011. The film, directed by filmmaker Spookie Daly, intersperses captivating live footage with band interviews and insightful commentary from Grey and others.
Check out JJ Grey and Mofro from Jacksonville, FL performing their song "How Junior Got His Head Put Out" from the 2004 album Lochloosa. This live performance was filmed in at the Ink building in Nashville, TN. New sessions every week!

His presence before an audience is something startling and immediate, at times a funk rave-up, other times a sort of mass-absolution for the mortal weaknesses that make him and his audience human. When you see JJ Grey and his band Mofro live—and you truly, absolutely must—the man is fearless. Onstage, Grey delivers his songs with compassion and a relentless honesty, but perhaps not until Ol’ Glory has a studio record captured the fierceness and intimacy that defines a Grey live performance. “I wanted that crucial lived-in feel,” Grey says of Ol’ Glory, and here he hits his mark. On the new album, Grey and his current Mofro lineup offer grace and groove in equal measure, with an easygoing quality to the production that makes those beautiful muscular drum-breaks sound as though the band has set up in your living room.
