Volunteers and vendors are sought for the Saturday, January 2 Key West Concerts presentation of “An Evening with JJ Grey & Mofro,” hosted by Key West Art & Historical Society at the historic Fort East Martello at 3501 S. Roosevelt Blvd.

The band, which tours widely with more than 120 live shows a year, have been lauded in major media outlets such as New York Times, Wall Street Journal and NPR for their soulful blend of blues, rock, folk, funk, gospel, R&B and Southern-inspired narratives.

The family-friendly concert, which will feature the band’s 9th album, “Ol Glory,” is part of the Music at Martello Series— a program established by Key West Art & Historical Society to promote the arts and bring live music to the Keys. It will feature a “festival-like” atmosphere with food vendors, a “kid’s zone” complete with a bounce house, and a “backyard casual” setup for the early-evening concert. Interested vendors and volunteers can contact keywestconcerts@gmail.com for more information.

Sponsored in part by We Cycle, Wonder Dog Productions, the Eden House, and Shipyard Brewing Company and portions of the evening’s proceeds will help fund KWAHS initiatives. A cash bar and select Key West food vendors will be available on the concert’s grounds.

JJ Grey & Mofro starts at 7pm with a tba opening act at 5:45, doors open at 5pm. Discounted tickets can be purchased in advance for $25 at keywestconcerts.com or at the door for $30. Key West Art & Historical Society members can call 305.295.6616 x 106 for special member-priced tickets and to join KWAHS to receive member benefits. Children under 12 are free. Parking will be available for $5, bike parking is free. For more information, contact keywestconcerts@gmail.com.

Your Museums. Your Community. It takes an Island.
