There are a countless number of rock bands who fell into the musical void between the Classic Rock era of the ’60’s and ’70’s, and the Rock era of today.Â Many bands who formedÂ in the musical period between the 80’s and 90’s were simply “one-hit wonders” and have since flown off of the radar screen.Â There are a few exceptions however, and the blues oriented, hard-rock jam band “The Black Crowes” are certainly one of them .
Ever since their formation in Atlanta, Georgia in 1984 under the name “Mr Crowes Garden”,Â the band has had an ever-evolving lineup, with brothers Chris and Rich Robinson being the only members remaining consistent throughout the years and into today. Â After changing their name to The Black Crowes, they made a demo recording which led to them to finally being noticed and signed with American Recordings in 1989.
Their 1990 debut album, “Shake Your Money Maker” was loaded with now- familiar singles such as, “Twice as Hard“, “She Talks to Angels, “Hard to Handle“, and “Jealous Again“.Â The album was a huge success, going multi-platinum and selling over 3 million copies.Â The Crowes went on to create many more albums including a mix of studio albums, live albums, and greatest hits compilations, as well as a much anticipated and highly successful touring stint with Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page during 1999-2000.
Today, the band consists of brothers Chris and Rich Robinson (vocals and guitar), as well as Luther Dickinson (guitar), Sven Pipien (bass), Adam MacDougall (keyboard), and Steve Gorman (drums).Â To celebrate the release of their new studio album “Before the Frost“, the Black Crowes are currently midway through their massive “Stuck Inside the Utopia” tour, which ends on December 6th at the legendary San Francisco Fillmore Auditorium.
Don’t miss your chance to catch the Crowes at the Fillmore in Denver on Friday, November 13th at 8:00 pm.
