Bogalusa Blues & Heritage Festival > Lineup

Just thought I'd pass it on as I owe this board for bringing them to my attention.

J.J. Grey & Mofro

The BBHF III headliner, J.J. Grey & Mofro, will take the stage at 8 p.m. Saturday and close the fest in a powerful, passionate fury of down-home Southern funk. Known for a grimy blend of front porch soul, roots-deep story telling and laying-it-on-the-line shows that move audiences to dance and, sometimes, to tears, this band is at the height of its game and Grey has a past that provides abundant material and countless characters who struggle and triumph through his music. Now he's dropped his fighter's stance to let the songs and stories flow through him, creating themselves and finding outlet via the man who's connected to the singing southern soil in all its gritty glory.

Good call! Saw him in Jamaica this January as a guest of Govt Mule at Island Exodus V. Great tunes and really nice guy.

Next January's guests are Johnny Winter and Anders.

Yeah, looking into it and it seems like you've got to bring your own tent and camp a few miles away. Or just drink enough to stay the night in the hospital across the street.

Doesn't sound like a convenient situation.

If you haven't been, you should check it out. Fantastic venue. They have RV and tent spots in the park for those who want them. The tent sites have an air conditioned shower facility and it's right on the banks of a picturesque creek. Hotels and B&Bs for everyone else. It is the best value for a music festival you will find anywhere. A 2 day pass for 2 and a camp site with showers for less than $100 bucks!

Check out their site. Lots of pictures of the venue under the media tab.
