The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, in partnership with Flying Saucer Presents, announces that the swagger-drenched, psychedelic rock band The Magpie Salute will play the Concert Hall on Thursday, February 7, 2019. Old friends pass through our lives similar to characters in a time-worn, dog-eared novel. As we page through life, they return to walk alongside of us on bold new adventures at all the right moments. Such is the story of The Magpie Salute. For as much as the group represents a musical union of swaggering rock ‘n’ roll, psychedelic blues, and campfire-worthy storytelling, it also marks a reunion of musicians whose paths twisted and turned right back to each other.
Pulled together by guitarist Rich Robinson, it continued a storyline he began in the Black Crowes with guitarist Marc Ford and bassist Sven Pipien. Meanwhile, vocalist John Hogg shared Hookah Brown with Robinson as keyboardist Matt Slocum and drummer Joe Magistro both joined him for solo records and tours over the years. Now, these six individuals conjure magic on their full-length debut of original material, “High Water I” [Mascot/Eagle Records], for 2018 with “High Water II” to come in 2019.
Doors 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm
