Concert Preview-The Black Crowes Set to Soar Into Saratoga
The Black Crowes planned a 'Shake Your Money Maker' 30th Anniversary Tour for 2020 but with the pandemic, the calendar turned and it has become the 31st anniversary. On Tuesday September 14th we will finally get to celebrate with Chris and Rich Robinson at SPAC. Get your tickets HERE.
Spoiler Alert! here is a preview of what to expect when the band comes to Saratoga. Sunday's show in Hartford, Connecticut marked the 4th performance on the tour and this is how it went down.
The Black Crowes, consisting of Chris Robinson, Rich Robinson, Sven Pipien on bass, Isaiah Mitchell on lead guitar, Brian Griffin on drums, and Joel Robinow on keys opened the set with "Twice as Hard" and continued to rip through their first album in it's entirety, playing each song true to it's original recording.
Following the "Shake Your Money Maker" set, the band navigated through gems from various albums mainly focused on "The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion" album. For the fans of the 'jam band' version of the Black Crowes the highlight of the evening was "Thorn In My Pride" as Rich Robison and Isaiah Mitchell traded leads throughout an extended version of the tune.
