Rich Robinson, co-founding member of The Black Crowes, brings together two former Black Crowes bandmates – guitarist Marc Ford and bassist Sven Pipien – to create The Magpie Salute! The band instantly sold out its first performance at New York’s Gramercy Theatre in January 2017. Three more dates were scheduled, each of which sold out within minutes!
To create The Magpie Salute’s new sound, Rich and his ensemble have called upon their collective influences, from R&B, country and spirituals, to artists such as Sly Stone, Neil Young, and The Small Faces – a vast musical landscape which, at its core, is pure rock n’ roll.
The Magpie Salute is writer, guitarist, and vocalist Rich Robinson, guitarist Marc Ford, bassist Sven Pipien, drummer Joe Magistro, keyboardist Matt Slocum, and guitarist Nico Bereciartua. In addition, Rich has pulled together a fine cast of vocalists, including lead singer John Hogg (Hookah Brown, Moke), former Crowes singer Charity White, and background singers Adrien Reju and Katrine Ottosen.
What’s a magpie salute? The term refers to a British superstition about saluting magpies to ward off negativity!
