JJ Grey & Mofro
JJ Grey & Mofro
Singing with a passion and fervor directly influenced by the classic soul heroes, JJ Grey & MOFRO have written and recorded five albums of original songs steeped in the rhythm & blues, rock, and country soul of his native backwoods home outside Jacksonville, Florida. Grey comes from a long tradition of Southern storytellers and, in that spirit, he fills his songs with details that are at once vivid, personal and universal. After a decade of hard touring, he still spends eight months of the year on the road, bringing his music to a loyal, ever-growing, worldwide fanbase.

Thomas Wynn & The Believers are "Southern Rock Muscle" - The Orlando Sentinel. They are a combination of blistering rock and southern soul. This tight six-piece, fiery ensemble has been playing the Orlando original music circuit for the last few years and has quickly garnered local celebrity press status and fan buzz. Thomas' spirit-moving vocals are uniquely supported by sister Olivia Wynn's engaging and captivating voice and presence. Olivia and Thomas stand side by side on stage. Her strong vocal harmonies and response makes the perfect companion to his yearning banshee cries.
Known for their powerful LIVE performances, they have headlined 100+ shows this year alone and have additionally shared the stage with national acts Gov't Mule, Leon Russell, Drive-By Truckers, Leftover Salmon, JJ Grey & Mofro, and Medeski, Martin & Wood, just to name a few. TW&TB personifies rugged, yet uplifting spirited rock, sprinkled with southern soul R&B. As a songwriter, Thomas' tunes are brutally honest and heartfelt. The themes of the band go beyond years of drugs, heartbreaks and hypocrisy to deliver a message of hope. TW&TB radiate a southern charm that is all their own and have quickly become a Florida favorite.
REAX Magazine recently said… "For once, you have a Florida band that is truly Florida. They look like Florida, they sound like Florida - with a touch of Molly Hatchett, The Band, Neil Young, and The Black Crowes. Not fad hipster, not transplant Florida, but Florida Florida." One journalist said, after seeing their show he had a strange urge to gleefully run through the cotton fields sipping on moonshine.
These guys are on the leading edge of creating a new southern rock scene. The sum of the parts is the strongest live shows in the region. Powerful melodies and hooks, grinding jams with soaring guitars and tight drum work, and a front man that can carries the audience to new heights. "You have to book them… I was astounded."

Voted Best Rock Band 2009, 2010, 2011 by Orlando Weekly Readers, as well as capturing a 2011 OMNi for Best LIVE Act!
