If you've ever seen JJ Grey & Mofro, you have an idea of what to expect from this concert-length DVD and accompanying 78-minute CD. That said, since this gig, recorded in January at Atlanta's Variety Playhouse, was pre-planned with the end result being Brighter Days, maybe you don't. For starters, there's the band. The Brighter Days film was by Spookie Daly. The multi-camera concert footage is spontaneous, capturing the band in full-on, sweat-streaked glory, feeding off the crowd and passing good vibes back to them. The audio CD doesn't come off quite as well. Perhaps it's the lack of between-song banter, or that seeing a band play numerous choruses of a particular tune translates better in visual rather than the aural mediums.

Summary: JJ Grey & Mofro's debut live concert album and DVD set was recorded at Atlanta's Variety Playhouse in January 2011. Genre(s): Blues, Pop/Rock, Roots Rock, Contemporary Blues. Grey's voice is much grittier live than on records, it is a catalyst for the band to build upon and they do so whenever presented with the opportunity.

JJ Grey & The Mofro. Added to My Q. Show Information. Her pop soul-influenced album Masterplan was released in March 2008 and made it to the top ten in Austria and Germany, also reaching number one in Switzerland, where it was certified platinum by the IFPI for more than 30,000 copies sold. In September 2009, Heinzmann's second album Roots to Grow was released. One of the best-selling Swiss artists of the late 2000s, Heinzmann has won several high-profile prizes as a recording artist such as Prix Walo, the LIVE Krone, a Comet, a Swiss Music Award, the Radio Regenbogen Award, and the 2009 ECHO Award.

Jacksonville’s JJ Grey has been delivering his brand of funky, countrified blues-rock to true-believing audiences ever since his debut album Blackwater was unleashed in 2007. Grey’s voice is soulful, scratchy and impassioned, as capable of crooning a tender ballad as unleashing a fiery torrent worthy of a hard rock band in its prime. With a string of memorable albums already under his belt that includes 2008’s Orange Blossoms and 2010’s Georgia Warhorse, Grey and his band Mofro have now released a combination live album and DVD set documenting a recent performance in Atlanta

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.
