The Magpie Salute, an exciting new band that features musicians who have played together for decades throughout various projects, comes to The Kent Stage on Thursday, Sept. 6.

The Magpie Salute brings Rich Robinson, the guitarist and co-founding member of The Black Crowes, together with two key members of Crowes fame - guitarist Marc Ford and bassist Sven Pipien - alongside drummer Joe Magistro, and guitarist Nico Bereciartua. The band also boasts a fine cast of vocalists, including lead singer John Hogg, former Crowes singer Charity White and background singers, Adrien Reju and Katrine Ottosen.

Embraced by music fans as soon as show dates were announced in October 2016, the band instantly sold out its first performance scheduled for January 2017 at the Gramercy Theatre in New York. Driven by popular demand, more dates were scheduled, each of which sold out within minutes.

The Magpie Salute marks the reunion of the Robinson and Ford guitar team that ended back in 1997 when Ford left The Black Crowes. The group intends to perform the songs and the unique improvisational flights that characterized the Crowes body of work. “That’s what we do when we get together,” Ford said. He adds that the vocals will obviously be different, but that in turn will lead to a huge range of possibility and other places to go with different singers.

According to Robinson, the set list for their performances varies from show to show, keeping the music fresh for the musicians and the audience. “We will continue in the long line of digging deep into my old Crowes’ catalogue, some great covers, some we’ve done before, some we have never played, songs from my solo records and some of Marc’s songs off of his new record,”

General admission tickets are $30. The show begins at 8:00 p.m. with doors opening at 7 p.m.

American rock band formed in 2016 by former members of The Black Crowes.
