NORFOLK, VA: In a relaxed flowy jam session that extended through two sets at the NorVa, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood spun a dreamy web that enveloped the audience in a glow of love, peace, and good times. Promoting latest release Barefoot in the Head, the brotherhood in spirit cruised through a setlist that included slices and snippets from not only the band’s catalog but also from Robinson’s solo work. Eschewing the common practice of releasing catchy singles, the brotherhood instead takes a meditative approach in generating a mood of family, love and bonding at shows, making what could have been a typical concert experience into something altogether different.

Slipping slow private smiles at every soloist in the band after their turn at the jam, Chris Robinson displays the demeanor of a man who has had his time in the big spotlight of fame and is now comfortable in his own skin and doing the work that fulfills his soul. Releasing three studio albums in two years’ time, the band is on a creative roll. To catch them on their fall tour, check this website for locations and dates:
