Savory hooks: When he’s not on tour or performing at the Super Bowl with Maroon 5, keyboardist PJ Morton can be found playing his own gigs to promote the recent Grammy-nominated album Gumbo. Accompanying Morton (who is fresh from the 50th annual NOLA jazz fest) on his Keys & A Mic Acoustic Tour are Jakiya Ayanna and Shaina Aisha, who make up the sister duo The Amours, and elevate the harmonies on Morton’s R&B tracks, including his sultry cover of the Bee Gees’ “How Deep Is Your Love.”

Wednesday 5/8. $20, 8:30pm. The Southern Café & Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
