Neal Casal, Joe Russo, Sam Bush, Larry Campbell and More Join The Black Crowes at The Capitol Theatre

The Black Crowes got some help from a bunch of friends during their two acoustic shows at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY over the weekend. Some of the guests were previously announced, while others were more of a surprise.

Vetiver’s Otto Hauser sat in with the group on percussion for the entirety of their Friday night performance. Multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell also joined in for much of the set, including the band’s first-ever rendition of David Allen Coe’s “Tennessee Whiskey.” That show also featured a solo performance of “Follow You Forever” from Rich Robinson, as well as a solo take on the CRB tune “100 Days of Rain” from Chris Robinson. The Black Crowes also treated fans to their debut cover of T. Rex’s “Spaceball Ricochet” during the encore.

Fans that came to the Saturday show were lucky enough to see even more guests join in on the fun. Campbell, mandolin virtuoso Sam Bush and Furthur drummer Joe Russo all sat in with The Crowes for most of their show, including the band’s first ever takes on Rod Stewart’s “I Don’t Want to Talk About It,” the traditional “Hobo Song,” Pink Floyd’s “The Gnome” and “Chapter 24” and Bob Wills’ “Milk Cow Blues.” The show also featured covers of Bob Dylan’s “The Mighty Quinn” and The Band’s “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” as well as a solo take on “Lost and Found” from Rich Robinson and a solo take on “Tumbleweed in Eden” from Chris Robinson. In addition, Chris Robinson Brotherhood guitarist Neal Casal sat in for the encore, with opener John Fullbright joining in during The Band’s classic to close out the show.

The Black Crowes will play two more acoustic shows at The Capitol Theatre tonight and tomorrow night, with Justin Townes Earle opening. Larry Campbell and Sam Bush are scheduled to join them for both of those shows.
