Boasting a stellar lineup of familiar and supremely talented players, southern hard rock collective The Magpie Salute will return to Nashville for their first headlining show in a couple of years (and first since last year’s debut studio LP) tonight, Feb. 1 at Cannery Ballroom. Counting members of Black Crowes, including Rich Robinson, among their ranks, the band have, in just a few short years, become an incredible live fixture, and we’d highly recommend grabbing tickets to their latest Music City outing right here, to see what they’re all about! Read on for more about the show.
THE MAGPIE SALUTE
While there are no shortage of “supergroups” forming, touring and recording music, not all of them are created equal. Enter The Magpie Salute, who have a much more permanent, seasoned feel, despite only officially getting together in this incarnation in 2016. The impressive and eclectic collective are stacked with some heavy-hitters, including Black Crowes co-founder Rich Robinson on guitar, plus fellow Black Crowes alumni Marc Ford and Sven Pipien on guitar and bass, drummer Joe Magistro and keyboard player Matt Slocum of the Rich Robinson Band, lead singer John Hogg (Hookah Brown, Moke), and a revolving panel of additional performers and backing singers. With a roster this robust, it’s no surprise that their bluesy, hard southern rocking sound is huge, as showcased on their debut self-titled live record, which dropped in 2017, and last year’s proper studio debut, High Water I. Returning to Music City after a couple years of increasingly larger shows and festival spots, The Magpie Salute are already a live force to be reckoned with, and certainly essential viewing for any fan of Black Crowes or TMS’ many other associated projects.
The Magpie Salute perform tonight, Feb. 1 at Cannery Ballroom. The show is 18+, begins at 8 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $30.
