When you see The Chris Robinson Brotherhood in your town, which they’ll no doubt be visiting sooner than later, the former Black Crowes vocalist will likely be the most recognizable. That’s not what this band is about, however, as this is no patchwork group assembled to orbit a central star.
Chris Robinson Brotherhood announce today that Tony Leone has joined the band on drums. His first performance with The CRB will be this coming weekend at the Sunshine Music & Blues Festival in Florida followed by a 14-date tour across the Midwest and East Coast in February. Leone's arrival follows the departure of the band's original drummer George Sluppick.
Bear Creek Music & Art Festival has added headlining artist Chris Robinson’s Soulive Revue. This one-time-only collaboration will feature Black Crowes/Chris Robinson Brotherhood singer Chris Robinson with Soulive (Eric Krasno, Alan Evans and Neal Evans), The Shady Horns (Eric Bloom and Ryan Zoidis) and several very special guests.
For THE BLACK CROWES, it's always been about musical exploration, and on their “Lay Down With Number 13” world tourin 2013, for which tickets go on sale January 11 at 10:13 AM LOCAL TIME, they'll keep their shows as fresh as ever.
Chris Robinson, front man for The Black Crowes, has been touring around with a band he calls The Chris Robinson Brotherhood. It’s wonderful to see such a prominent figure like Robinson play in intimate venues like the Fox, close up, starting from scratch.
