Members of Tedeschi Trucks Band and London Souls Sit in with The Black Crowes
The Black Crowes played their final show before an undetermined hiatus on Saturday night. The Crowes have a tradition of closing their fall tours in San Francisco—Chris Robinson lives in California—and this year was no different. The band headlined San Fran’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and invited their summer tour companions Tedeschi Trucks Band and London Souls to open the night. As they did most nights during their summer run, the Crowes invited out the members of both bands at the end of their show for an all-star group jam based around a classic cover. On Saturday the three bands shared the stage on an extended “Turn On Your Lovelight.”
Chris Robinson describes the bands’ summer jam sessions in the Jan/Feb issue of Relix. “Day one up there in Nashville it was like, ‘Should we jam?,’” the singer admits. “‘Yeah, what do you guys want to do?’ So it was everyone in the pool right away and it just took off from there.”
Chris Robinson will tour with his Brotherhood in 2014 while Rich Robinson is in the process of putting together a new solo band. Crowes drummer Steve Gorman and Crowes guitarist Jackie Greene will continue to perform together as part of Trigger Hippy. Crowes keyboardist Adam MacDougall will also continue to perform with Chris Robinson Brotherhood.
