Jacksonville-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist JJ Grey & his band Mofro, whose new Alligator album “Orange Blossoms” is set for an August 26 release, has lined up a fall tour beginning July 23 in Iowa City, IA.

With dates issued through November 7 in Sarasota, FL, Grey & company will traverse the U.S. playing clubs, theaters and festivals. With many open dates, the tour will more than likely be expanded.

“Orange Blossoms” was recorded in north Florida and features 12 songs (including 11 Grey originals) inspired by Grey’s life experiences and observations. Over the course of the album he moves from gospel-tent fervor to Southern-fried rockers to deeply emotional soul.
