Allman Brothers Band to Release The Fox Box - Three Nights at Atlanta's Fabulous Fox Theatre
 
Posted on Thursday, March 23, 2017 - 05:54 PM

ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND TO RELEASE

THE FOX BOX

2004 THREE-NIGHT STAND FROM ATLANTA'S FABULOUS FOX THEATRE

When the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND hit Atlanta's Fox Theatre for a sold-out three-night run in 2004, they were buoyed by the critical and fan reception of what would be their final studio album, Hittin' The Note. The band had been touring heavily and were ready to settle down in their beloved Atlanta for three special nights. The shows were released by the then-nascent "Instant Live" program, contemporaneous recordings sold at shows and internet mail order only afterwards without much packaging or fanfare.

Now, the band will release--digitally March 24 and physically on April 28--via RED Distribution all three shows as The Fox Box. The 8-CD set features a remastered audio mix as well as tightening up of the song spacing. And these three September 2004 shows have a unique feature that ABB fans will appreciate: of the 53 songs performed, there is only one repeat, the sprawling "Dreams," played (three times), and each with a different voicing by the guitar soloist: DEREK TRUCKS, WARREN HAYNES and JACK PEARSON.

ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND in 2004 featured founding members GREGG ALLMAN (keyboards, vocals) and drummers BUTCH TRUCKS and JAIMOE along with longtime percussionist MARC QUINONES, guitarists WARREN HAYNES and DEREK TRUCKS and bassist OTEIL BURBRIDGE. Guitarist JACK PEARSON, who was in the band from 1997-99, was a special guest. Other guests include Derek's bandmate/wife Susan Tedeschi, guitarist Vaylor Trucks (Butch's son who was captured on the rear cover of Brothers & Sisters as a child) and keyboardist Rob Baracco (Phil Lesh Quintet/Other Ones).

Since 2002, representatives for the ABB--Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees and Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award honorees--have worked diligently to honor and respect the music of the band, which was founded in 1969. Through their own Peach Records, they have released a number of high-quality, fan-favorite shows including a 40th Anniversary DVD as well as Hittin' the Note and One Way Out CDs, among others.

Tribute to Butch Trucks March 30 at the Ardmore in Philly
 
Posted on Thursday, March 16, 2017 - 04:13 PM

On Thursday March 30th, The Ardmore Music Hall will host a tribute concert to the late Butch Trucks, founding member of The Allman Brothers Band. For one night only, extended members of the ABB family including past and present members of Les Brers, Butch Trucks & the Freight Train Band, The Gregg Allman Band, Jaimoe's Jasssz Band, Dickey Betts Band & more will pay tribute to one of rock & roll's great drummers, following Trucks' tragic passing in January.


Net proceeds go to The Big House Museum in Butch's name. Tickets are going fast: http://bit.ly/ButchTrucksTribute


After joining The Allman Brothers Band in 1969, Butch Trucks remained a constant in their 45-year career. The group became one of the most popular bands of the era on the strength of their live performances and several successful albums, including their seminal 1971 live release, At Fillmore East. Trucks also found success after the Allman Brothers Band through his bands Les Brers and Butch Trucks & The Freight Train Band.


Ardmore Music Hall had the honor of hosting Butch Trucks with his Freight Train Band in the spring of 2016. He was scheduled to return to AMH when we sadly learned of his passing. His innovative drumming techniques will continue to inspire others, and his life deserves to be celebrated.


AMH and Trucks’ friends are dedicating a night to remembering all the contributions Trucks made to rock and jam music, playing the music of The Allman Brothers Band, with Grahame Lesh (son of Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh) and his band Midnight North starting off the night.
