The Black Crowes

There are few bands that rival the Black Crowes in timeless rock and roll. The Crowes began way back in 1984 when they were an Atlanta outfit going by Mr. Crowes Garden. After a few years they changed their name, got signed and made their first album, Shake Your Money Maker, a multi-platinum success that included hit singles like “Hard to Handle” and “She Talks to Angels.”
The massive following the Black Crowes gained with that first album in 1990 continued to grow with each new record and each chart-topping single. But during this time of prosperity, members of one of the country’s most celebrated bands began running into problems. Among other set-backs, the group had a number of line-up changes and at one point was dropped from their record label. In 2002 the Black Crowes took a lengthy hiatus, much to the disappointment of their legions of fans.
It’s been six years and now the Crowes are back with new members and new tunes. Their latest record Warpaint has received rave reviews across the board and the band has been on the road sharing their new music with the people who have been waiting so patiently for their rise from the ashes. The group is headed to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on November 14 for what will no doubt be considered one of the best concerts of the year. Tickets range in price from $30.50 to $38.
