The Magpie Salute played 4 sold out nights at the Gramercy Theatre in NYC from January 19-22. I caught the 20th and 22nd shows. The band lead by Rich Robinson consists of members of his previous bands including the Black Crowes, Hookah Brown, and his recent Rich Robinson Band. John Hogg is on vocals, Marc F'n Ford and Nico Bereciartua join Rich on guitars, Sven Pipien on bass, Matt Slocum on keys, and Joe Magistro on drums. Rich has displayed class and loyalty in the past and he stayed the course bringing back Charity White on backing vocals (she was teamed with her mother Mona on backing vocals with the Black Crowes for years) There were 2 other ladies who added strength to the vocals and one contributed on harp rather nicely (Katrine). The lovely ladies were Adrien Reju and Katrine Ottosen. Adrien was also at the Woodstock Sessions show.


Rich called it an 80 song experiment playing a mostly different set list each night with only a couple songs repeated over the 4 night stretch. There were lyric sheets for Mr. Hogg and some melding moments vocally, Ford pushed the envelope with some leads, it was all a little loose at times, but all in all a fantastic showing by what I hope is a new breath of fresh music into a semi-stagnant scene for rock and roll. Rich Robinson and Marc Ford were the Keith Richards and Mick Taylor of the '90's. I'd love to see a re-emergence of that. A great blend of musicianship on all ports.


The Band played songs from Marc Ford solo, Hookah Brown, The Black Crowes, and different covers by some deep classic artists. They played Dean by Terry Reid and it F'n rocked it (my video grab sucked dodging security). It's a pleasure to hear the depth of the chosen repertoire. It's flawed yet fabulous. They have scheduled 3 dates so far in England in April. The band will tighten things up and I am praying for this band to get their asses in the studio and lay down some new tracks.

Here's a few video clips from the 20th and pic's from both shows I attended. The spaceman gave inclusion in spirit to Eddie Harsch the original keyboardist who was to be side by side with Matt for this project but passed on Nov 4th last year, RIP Sir.

Thanks for the post looking forward to see what happens with them.
When this band was initially announced , I don't think John Hogg was in the band, right? Maybe I am wrong and missed something, but glad he is!

Yes you're right, I'm not sure when he was brought on board. The initial Woodstock Sessions get together had no Hogg and Eddie was still with us. It was the same band without Charity or the Katrine who played the harp. (Thanx Jen for the info)

Here's a clip from Woodstock show and another with Kat on the harp (she also plays harp on Thorn)

Just listened to 1/22
Strong show - it's great to hear Rich and Marc together again

I personally would have liked it better if Rich did all the lead vox instead of Hogg, but that's just me.

I'll be looking for them in NE

I just saw Southern Soul Assembly @ The City Winery last night, Great stuff. I saw a blurb about an upcoming sweet line-up at a bucket list venue. Magpie Salute, Southern Soul Assembly, North Mississippi All Stars, & Anders Osborne @ Red Rocks.

I caught one Magpie Salute show in NY City. I think they're in a tough spot vocally. The show would definitely be much better if someone with a great set of pipes was on lead vocals. That's not gonna happen Hogg. Rich Robinson and Marc Ford are not any better vocally. Nobody wants Chris back. But that's a large repertoire of crowes songs to ask anyone to learn. I'll be eager to see them play because I love those songs but I think the main missing ingredient is a terrific signer to help breathe life into those classics.
