Over the years, the band, Bill Nershi (guitars and vocals), Michael Kang (mandolin, violin, guitar and vocals), Keith Moseley (bass and vocals), Michael Travis (drums and percussion), Kyle Hollingsworth (keyboards and vocals) and Jason Hann (percussion), has played over 1,500 Incidents, including their own festivals and Incidents across the country and they have been hailed for their commitment to musical creativity and integrity, community spirit, philanthropic endeavors and their innovative approach to the business of music.

The Chris Robinson Brotherhood
Chris Robinson Brotherhood was formed in 2012 by Black Crowes’ vocalist, Chris Robinson. Joined by guitarist Neal Casal, keyboardist Adam McDougall, bassist Jeff Hill and drummer Tony Leone, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood is a band that thrives on the unexpected. They first emerged on the national stage when they released not one, but two acclaimed full-length albums—’Big Moon Ritual’ followed by ‘The Magic Door’— within a few months of each other. The band’s relentless tour schedule brought their shimmering acid-Americana around the world for a staggering 118-date tour, firmly establishing the CRB as the new standard-bearers of the psychedelic roots torch. In 2014, they returned to the studio for ‘Phosphorescent Harvest,’ a masterful collection that showcased the blossoming songwriting partnership between Robinson and CRB lead guitarist Neal Casal. On each of those albums, the songs and arrangements had been locked in prior to the sessions, but heading back into the studio for their 2016 release ‘Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel,’ Robinson purposely left as much open-ended as possible, embracing the virtuosic improvisational chemistry that’s always made their live shows such enthralling spectacles.
Armed with a persuasive voice, a vivid songwriting skill and an instinctive mastery of several instruments, Greene has carved out a unique musical niche that blends American roots styles into timeless, personally-charged music. His latest album, Back to Birth, released in August 2015, comes after five years of collaborative musical adventures that have teamed him with several notable veterans that began in 2007 when he became a frequent member of Phil Lesh & Friends playing lead guitar and vocals for the Grateful Dead bassist’s touring ensemble.
In 2013, Greene joined the reunited Black Crowes as lead guitarist on their worldwide tour, and the following year released the self-titled debut album of supergroup Trigger Hippy, which Greene is a member of along with Joan Osborne and Crowes drummer Steve Gorman. He has also toured as part of WRG, an acoustic trio with the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir and Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson, and he performed with Levon Helm as part of Helm’s fabled Midnight Ramble shows.
