Keb’ Mo’ Band

  • Florida Theatre
  • 128 East Forsyth Street
  • Jacksonville, Florida 32202

Over the past two decades, Blues musician Keb’ Mo’ has cultivated a reputation as a modern master of American roots music. He has garnered five GRAMMY awards, including his most recent for his 2019 release of Oklahoma, which won in the Best Americana Album category. The album features cameos from Taj Mahal, Rosanne Cash, Robert Randolph, Jaci Velasquez and Keb’ Mo’s wife Robbie Brooks Moore, as well as the fan favorite songs “I Remember You” and “This Is My Home.”
The Brother Brothers are the indie folk duo of Adam and David Moss.
