Chris Robinson’s Brotherhood to hit Neumos this weekend

by Darrell Fortune

This Saturday night, well after the Thanksgiving tryptophan hangover has subsided and you’ve recovered from Black Friday Madness, it’ll be high time to feed your musical soul. Lucky for us, Chris Robinson’s Brotherhood bring their musical goodness to Nuemos at 8pm.

You know Mr. Robinson from his other project, now on hiatus, The Black Crowes. Not one to sit around and rest on past success, this papa has a brand new bag. The soulful rock/blues frontman hits the town with his latest offering backed by fellow Crowe and keyboardist Adam McDougall, George Sluppick on drums, Mark “Muddy” Dutton (Burning Tree) on bass, and Neal Casal on guitar.

Having two CDs under their belt already, Big Moon Ritual and their most recent release, The Magic Door, which dropped on September 11th, gives the band plenty of original materiel to draw from. They’re also gaining notoriety for their sprinkling of choice cover tunes during their sets. Robinson enjoys digging deep into the musical vault for funky, soulful songs of the 50s, and has a true love of the extended jam, ala The Grateful Dead.

Referring to themselves as a “phsyc band” wanting to make the music cosmic, this promises to be a night of real feasting. It’s nourishment for your heart and soul from the goodness of true talent who are in it for the love of the art and craft of music!

Tickets are 18 dollars. 21 and up. Doors open at 8pm. Nuemos, 925 E. Pike St. Seattle
