It was a hot one at the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park, and not just because of the humidity.

Stone Pony summer staples The Chris Robinson Brotherhood, fronted by former Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson (obviously), and surfer/musicians Donavon Frankenreiter, came together for a special headlining gig dubbed Under the Asbury Sun.

The show was initially scheduled to take place on The Stone Pony Summer Stage, but terrible rains, and thunderstorms, forced the show indoors, making for a tight, and hot night.

Luckily, the music absolutely overshadowed the heat in the room.

Frankenreiter provided his patented smooth, soulful jams, while Robinson and the gang provided two sets of excellent jams including covers of Nat Stuckey, The Black Crowes, Big Joe Turner & His Blues Kings, Delaney Bramlett, Percy Mayfied, and the Velvet Underground.
