THE BLACK CROWES present SHAKE YOUR MONEY MAKER FRIDAY, JULY 22, 2022 (8 pm) GRAND SIERRA RESORT – GRAND THEATREThirty years ago, The Black Crowes led by brothers Chris and Rich Robinson, released their debut album Shake Your Money Maker. The album was, as Rolling Stone described, “a guitar-party cracker that marries Southern R&B crunch and Anglo cock-strutting attitude.” At a time when journalists were mourning the death of rock as cheesy pop and hair metal dominated the charts, The Black Crowes emerged from Atlanta to resuscitate it. The authentically gritty blues-rock album, whose title is a homage to blues legend Elmore James, went double platinum in its first year. The Black Crowes were named “The Most Rock n’ Roll Rock n’ Roll Band in the World” by Melody Maker and the band didn’t disappoint. Catch The Black Crowes live at the Grand Sierra Resort when they bring this iconic album to Reno! Tickets may be purchased in advance at GrandSierraResort.com.
