Chris Robinson Brotherhood returned to NYC to play a sold out show. The tour included two back-to-back sold out performances.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood has been busy touring extensively throughout the midwest in February.  The New York City shows stood out as fans were treated to two intimate performances, with two different double sets each night.

Aside from playing original material, the band performed covers including the Black Crowes.  Opening the show in the first set was Big Joe Turner and his Blues Kings “Shake Rattle, and Roll,”  and included  the Black Crowes “Little Lizzie Mae”,  Slim Harpo’s “The Music’s Hot” and Hoyt Axton’s “Never Been to Spain.” The band closed the first set with “Rosalee” from their debut album Big Moon Ritual. The second set included the beautiful “Reflections on a Broken Mirror” and the haunting “Burn Slow.” The set closed with “Sunday Sound” off of Chris Robinson’s solo album New Earth Mud.

Even with a long double set, the band showed no sign  of slowing down. They encored with O.V. Wright’s ” That’s How Strong My Love is”  and “It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll (But I Like It) by The Rolling Stones. 

The spirit of rock n roll is not about an impressive stage set up ,costumes, and choreographed moves. It’s about music, song, and soul and above all playing from the heart. Chris Robinson Brotherhood embodies that sentiment. All you really need is a guitar and a microphone.
