Andy Shore: Do you enjoy the festival scene?
JJ Grey: Oh yeah, love it. It’s great. Anytime I go to a festival and see as much music as I can, which I want to do anyways whether I know the acts or not, it’s a good festival.
JJ Grey & Mofro came out a half hour late at 10k, but they drew a decent crowd.

AS: How does your festival show compare to your regular show?
JJ: It only differs in what that moment and day presents. Both can be high energy or mellow. We played one time during the day at Bonnaroo had more energy and craziness and excitement than at a club show and it was just as much fun. A show is like an evening with friends, it can be the crazy drunken bender when everyone got shitfaced or a chill evening.

AS: Is there one summer music festival you guys are playing at this summer that you are most looking forward to?
JJ: I don’t think there’s a festival we’re playing that I’m not looking forward to. Location is everything, the right spot. It can either take away the good feeling and the music and the fans or it can add to it and take it to another level.Throwing back a PBR at 10k, apparently going for more of a drunken bender of a show.

AS: Where did the name MOFRO come from?
JJ: I worked in a lumberyard for 10+ years, and my buddies and me used to say it all the time at work. Like what’s up Mofro? It sounds like southern slang and didn’t mean anything.

AS: If you could pick one person to collaborate with for the new album, who would it be?
JJ: I’d have to go with Derek Trucks. He’s one of my favorite players.
