Jam-Veterans John Molo (Bruce Hornsby & The Range, Phil Lesh & Friends, John Fogerty), Barry Sless (Phil Lesh & Friends, David Nelson Band, Moonalice), Rob Barraco (Dark Star Orchestra, Phil Lesh & Friends), and Pete Sears (Jefferson Starship, Hot Tuna, Rod Stewart) team up with singer/songwriter Katie Skene, blending uninhibited jams, swamp blues, old style twang, traditional roots music, and southern soul into a musical truth that pushes forward the tradition of the California Jam Band movement.
Chris Robinson is one of the most respected musicians of his generation and has sold over 36 million records during the span of his career. Born Christopher Mark Robinson in Atlanta, Georgia in 1966, he grew up in a musical household absorbing all manner of influences from music, art and literature. This artistic melting pot of his youth would eventually lead to the creation of the band, Mr. Crowe’s Garden, in 1984. Robinson's on-stage presence and soulful voice, coupled with a solid presence on the college radio indie rock scene, led to the band signing a deal with American Records in 1989.
Over the years Chris has collaborated with other legendary artists like Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, in addition to Phil Lesh and Bob Weir of The Grateful Dead. Besides these musical collaborations he has continued producing and writing with a myriad of other artists.
In 2011, Robinson formed a new band called the Chris Robinson Brotherhood. The self-described “farm to table psychedelic rock band” was born out of a California musical tradition. To date the band has released five studio albums and a handful of EPs, while touring relentlessly and playing sold out shows across the U.S. The band has also released three live albums, Betty’s Blends Vol. 1, 2 & 3, which were produced by legendary Grateful Dead archivist Betty Cantor Jackson. Robinson established the band, now known to many devout fans as the “CRB,” with a progressive, dynamic rock ‘n’ roll sound. Simultaneously, Chris has continued his legacy as one of the most esteemed musicians of his time.
