The Black Crowes

CAA has signed rock band The Black Crowes for worldwide representation as the group reunites for a 30th anniversary tour.

The Black Crowes, led by brothers Chris and Rich Robinson, released their debut album, Shake Your Money Maker, nearly 30 years ago in 1990. The album went double platinum in its first year and has since gone quintuple platinum.

The Black Crowes went on to tour with rock legends AC/DC, Robert Plant and Aerosmith, while releasing eight studio albums, four live albums and selling more than 35 million records.

The Southern rock revivalists played their last show in 2013, announcing their split in 2015, with Chris saying he and Rich had not been on speaking terms for nearly the entire time since then.

On Monday, the Robinson brothers announced on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show that they would hit the road in 2020 for an anniversary tour celebrating the release of Shake Your Money Maker. The brothers expressed gratitude for being on speaking terms again and promised to perform the album in its entirety for the tour launching on June 17, 2020, in Austin.

While the Robinsons said made it clear they believed they are “the original members of The Black Crowes,” they also revealed the lineup of musicians who will be joining them on tour including Joel Robinow on keyboards, drummer Raj Ohja (both of the Once and Future Band), as well as Earthless guitarist Isaiah Mitchell and bassist Tim Lefebvre.

The Black Crowes are managed by Mark DiDia at Red Light Management. Their attorney is Greg Cimino.
