A longtime fan of Florida-based swamp rockers JJ Grey & Mofro, I was excited to herald their return to the Pageant just nine months after they rang in the New Year at the venue; but my excitement only grew stronger when it was announced that the opening act would be funky New Orleans rockers the Revivalists.

The Pageant was already filling up nicely with music fans spanning a wide range of ages as Atlanta-based openers Ponderosa took the stage Saturday night, a perfect pairing for the down-South flavor of JJ Grey & Mofro. While many opening acts are viewed as background music while folks get their beers, find their places and settle in, it was clear from the get-go that the musicians of Ponderosa were not going to accept this passive role.

JJ Grey 2/5/11

On tour for Georgia Warhorse, his new album with Mofro, JJ Grey crosses rustic, poetic lyrics with rugged blues moxie, resulting in a style that's a throwback to Memphis soul and backwoods Florida roots.
