WILMINGTON – “It was JJ Gray’s first show at the GLA since ‘time before,’ and you could tell the people were ready for his return,” said photographer Tom Dorgan of MoonFrog Media.

JJ Gray and Mofro landed at Greenfield Lake Amphitheater this past Sunday, August 14th. The sold-out show had fans scrambling for tickets at the last minute, as indicated by the numerous online ticket resale sites.

“It felt like diving into your favorite food after a few years on a remote island — like we’d eaten something but not yet grandma’s ‘ho pie,'” added Dorgan, making a reference to a mofro- Song – although one that was dropped from the 15-track setlist.

“So, yes, we’ve had live music post Covid shutdown, but we haven’t had JJ Gray & Mofro in almost three years,” he explained.

The Florida soul, funk and blues musician paved the way for another blues songwriter, Kentucky native Nat Myers. As a storyteller, Myers’ one-man show entertained with guitar and microphone.

Here are scenes from the show, with all photos by MoonFrog Media’s Tom Dorgan.
