WILMINGTON — The 30-year anniversary of “Shake Your Money Maker” continues to be celebrated by the reunited brothers Robinson, Rich and Chris. Last year, the two founders of the Black Crowes rejoined forces after a seven-year estrangement and took to the road to recapture the magic “Money Maker” had upon its release in 1989.

From it spawned numerous top hits — “Jealous Again,” “Hard to Handle,” “She Talks to Angels,” and others. The group played through the entire album at Live Oak Bank Pavilion on June 18 and peppered in tracks from their other releases, including “The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion” and “Amorica.”

For an encore, the band treated the audience to a cover of the Rolling Stones “Exile on Main Street,” off of 1972’s “Rocks Off.” The song appears on “1972,” the album the Black Crowes released earlier in the year, featuring their favorite tracks released that year, including David Bowie’s “Moonage Daydream” and T. Rex’s “The Slider.”  

According to photographer Tom Dorgan of MoonFrog Media, the stage was set up as a front porch on one side and a bar and bartender, with a jukebox, on the other.

“Robinson introduced the band and made a joke about the bartender looking like Issac from ‘The Love Boat,'” Dorgan said. “Then told the younger fans to ask someone next to them about that reference.”
