Chris Robinson Brotherhood, California’s sensational blues rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to Newport Music Hall!
Chris Robinson Brotherhood was formed in Los Angeles in 2011 by Chris Robinson (lead singer of rock band Black Crowes) while the band was on hiatus. The Brotherhood started out as Chris’ experimental project and according to him it was about having “a local L.A. band, just play in California, see where the music takes us and have a good time.” The project soon became a full-time gig and the current line-up features Chris (lead vocals, guitars), Neal Casal (guitars, vocals), Adam MacDougall (keyboards, vocals), Tony Leone (drums), and Jeff Hill (bass). Chris describes the group as a “farm-to-table psychedelic band” and that it “isn't the type of band that's going to make a concise four-minute song record”. He cites Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh and Bob Weir as the band’s main influences and the pair also featured in the band’s performances at the Great American Music Hall. The band’s had a stellar career with 3 studio albums, 2 live albums, and 2 singles. Their 2013 EP (Betty's Blends Volume 1) was recorded over 5 nights in San Francisco and featured songs picked by the Grateful Dead's record producer, Betty Cantor-Jackson. The band played 96 songs and Betty picked the best ones for the EP.
