Trey Anastasio Performs in Mr. Crowes Garden
Apparently, Chris and Rich Robinson have found a reunion Remedy. A year ago—-today in fact—-the long-feuding brothers performed for the first time since 2001 at the fourth annual Jammy Awards. And, over the past 12-months, the Robinsons have slowly rebuilt their famed band,“the Black Crowes”:http://www.blackcrowes.com/. On Monday, the Robinsons unveiled a new Crowes lineup at The Staircase in Pittston, PA during a semi-stealth performance billed as Mr. Crowes Garden (the groups original moniker). Anchored by the Robinson Brothers, the Black Crowes current roster also includes longtime keyboardist Eddie Hawyrsch and drummer Bill Dobrow, a veteran or Rich Robinsons Hookah Brown project. Perhaps most intriguing, guitarist Marc Ford and bassist Sven Pipien have also returned to the fold, recalling the Crowes classic mid-1990s lineup.
Last night, the new Crowes run continued with a performance at South Burlington, VTs Higher Ground. In addition to offering a pair of new songs, Dont Do It and Tell the Truth, the Crowes expanded to a septet for their two-song encore. Trey Anastasio made his first Crowes cameo, adding guitar to The Beatles Yet Blues and Otis Reddings Hard to Handle. Tomorrow, Mr. Crowes Garden will perform at New Haven, CTs Toads Place.
