St. Augustine Amphitheatre to reopen with Southern rock group JJ Grey & Mofro

Posted

The St. Augustine Amphitheatre recently announced live music will resume at the venue with blues and swampy Southern rock group JJ Grey & Mofro on Friday, Jan. 15, and Saturday, Jan. 16, 2021.

From the days of playing greasy local juke joints to headlining major festivals, Jacksonville native JJ Grey remains an unfettered, blissful performer, singing with a blue-collared spirit over the bone-deep grooves of his compositions.

JJ Grey & Mofro live at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre will be the first show at The Amp since going dark in March due to the COVID-19 health crisis. To protect the health of guests, artists, team members, crew and the well-being of live music, enhanced health and safety measures are in place, including:

■ Face masks: All guests, team members and crew are required to wear a face mask (covering the nose and mouth.) Face masks must be worn at all times upon entry and in common areas, but may be removed while in your ticketed seat.

■ Temperature and health screening: Before entering the venue, guests will have their temperature scanned by a no-touch thermometer. Guests with a temperature of 100.4 or above will be denied entry. Refunds will be provided to those denied entry.

■ Reduced contact: Updates to reduce contact include walk-through metal detectors, thermal image scanning and hands-free digital ticketing. All tickets will be digital.

■ Physical distancing: Limited capacity seating is adjusted to promote CDC recommended distancing. Physical distancing is required in common areas, and when entering/exiting the venue.

■ Enhanced cleaning: Routine cleaning and sanitization of facilities/common areas before, during and after each event with hospital-grade disinfectants. Hand sanitizing stations will also be located throughout the venue.

“We are both excited and prepared to bring live music back to our community,” said Gabe Pellicer, general manager of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre and Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. “We made it a priority from day one of the pandemic to reopen responsibly, and to reopen quickly, to support the well-being of our community. This has been a tough year for people, and we recognize that our business directly impacts the businesses around us. We want to do our part to help get our community back up and thriving again. By implementing these enhanced safety and health protocols into our operations, we’ll be able to do that, while also providing exceptional concert experiences.”

Tickets for JJ Grey & Mofro live at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 30, and will be available for purchase at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre box office and online at Ticketmaster.com.
