The Magpie Salute
Pulled together by guitarist Rich Robinson, The Magpie Salute continues a storyline he began in the Black Crowes with fellow Black Crowes members guitarist Marc Ford and bassist Sven Pipien. Meanwhile, vocalist John Hogg (Moke) shared Hookah Brown with Robinson and keyboardist Matt Slocum (Sixpence None The Richer) and drummer Joe Magistro both joined Robinson for solo records and tours over the years.
Now, together, these six individuals conjure magic in the studio and, more importantly, on stage.
The Magpie Salute represents a musical union of swaggering rock ‘n’ roll, psychedelic blues, and campfire-worthy storytelling that first took flight in 2016 when Robinson assembled the band for a now seminal Woodstock gig. The group went on to sell out four consecutive nights at The Gramercy in New York City in January 2017 chronicled with a historic Guitar Player cover featuring the two six-stringers. By the top of 2018, the band delivered a total of 77 seismic sets worldwide comprised of a 170-song repertoire of covers, Black Crowes’ tunes, and solo material. Acclaim came from Guitar World, Relix, and more, while Rolling Stone summed it up succinctly as “Explosive.”
Opening set by The Stone Foxes at 8:00pm.
“The Stone Foxes have an energetic style that’s rooted in swampy, foot-stomping rock… ambitious arrangements with diverse moods ranging from acoustic twang to thunderous electric-guitar riffs.” – NPR/WXPN “WORLD CAFE”
