It’s our birthday, and you’re invited! JJ Grey & Mofro along with Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers will be taking the stage 11/12 to join us in celebrating our 11-year anniversary!
The Granada Theater first opened it’s doors in 1946 as a 700-seat movie house. After decades of shifting between movie house and concert venue, the Granada was officially re-opened as a live music venue in 2004 under the leadership of Mike Schoner and Julia Garton. Since then, the venue has gained national recognition by USA Today and received many awards, including Best Live Music Venue by Pegasus News, The Dallas Observer, and D Magazine. In its 11 years running, the Granada has hosted many extremely talented artists, including, Adele, The Black Keys, Bob Dylan, Sleater-Kinney and many others to sold-out crowds. We are so excited to commemorate 11 years of great live music with one our favorites, the great JJ Grey and his band Mofro.
“JJ Grey is an unfettered, blissful performer, singing with a blue-collared spirit over the bone-deep grooves of his compositions. His presence before an audience is something startling and immediate, at times a funk rave-up, other times a sort of mass-absolution for the mortal weaknesses that make him and his audience human. When you see JJ Grey and Mofro live—and you truly, absolutely must—the man is fearless.”
A party you won’t want to miss, come out and celebrate great live music for 11 years and counting at your favorite Dallas venue!
