"The Brothers" Sold Out Madison Square Garden Show to be Rebroadcast this Weekend on nugs.tv
 
Posted on Wednesday, July 01, 2020 - 10:53 PM

Surviving members of the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND came together Tuesday, March 10 as THE BROTHERS for an acclaimed, sold-out, one-night-only show celebrating 50 years of the iconic American band’s legacy at Madison Square Garden in New York City. In partnership with nugs.net--the leading live music platform for concert recordings and live streams—the “50th Anniversary Celebration of The Allman Brothers Band" is now available for purchase on nugs.tv in HD or stunning 4K, and will be rebroadcast beginning this Friday (July 3) at 8PM EST – Sunday (July 5) Those who purchase the webcast will also be able to enjoy the show on demand for 48 hours upon first viewing. Both the video and audio have been re-edited and remixed, respectively to give home viewers the best seat in the house for this historic concert. Experience the music of
The Allman Brothers in an entirely new way. Now available in Sony’s 360 Reality Audio via nugs.net Hi-Fi. Listen to The Brothers’ nearly four-hour show as if you were there.

The Brothers consists of founding Allman Brothers Band (ABB) drummer Jaimoe as well as longtime ABB guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, bassist Oteil Burbridge and percussionist Marc Quinones, along with Widespread Panic drummer Duane Trucks and keyboardist Reese Wynans. Former ABB keyboardist (and longtime touring member of the Rolling Stones) Chuck Leavell joined as a special guest for many of the jams he helped create with the ABB.
The March 10 show is the last major concert to have taken place in New York before being shut down because of Covid-19. In a post-show interview with the Wall Street Journal, Jaimoe said, “It just felt like no BS, and all about music and love…I wanted to play music with my brothers. Everyone else is paying homage to the Allman Brothers music—and some of us are still here.” American Songwriter, (which described the show as a “massive success”) talked to Warren Haynes who said, “It was a very surreal night I think for all of us. It would have been under normal circumstances. But as we got closer and closer to show date, we were all wondering if we’re going to be allowed to play. We barely got in under the wire and then the next couple of days, they basically starting shutting down everything and canceling shows everywhere. It’s very bizarre that we turned out to be the last big show like that…I’m really glad that we were able to celebrate the 50th. When (original band member) Jaimoe
called everybody and said that he thought that we should do something for the 50th, we all instantly agreed and thought, yeah, let’s do this. In a lot of ways, it was a show that we had talked about doing as the Allman Brothers
Band but it never came to fruition. From the first moment of rehearsal it felt wonderful, and it just got better and better. I was very proud of everyone. From a musical standpoint, the band sounded wonderful. But there was so
much more at play.”

Early Music from Members of the Allman Brothers Band Released on CD and Vinyl
 
Posted on Thursday, March 26, 2020 - 04:38 PM

EARLY MUSIC FROM MEMBERS OF THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND

TO BE RELEASED ON CD FOR THE FIRST TIME AND ON VINYL
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN NEARLY 50 YEARS ON MARCH 27

FOUR COLLECTIONS INCLUDE EARLY GROUPS THE ALLMAN JOYS,
HOUR GLASS AND 31ST OF FEBRUARY

Buy at the Big House Museum Shop - CD's and Vinyl

Goldmine magazine Podcast with John Lynskey discussing these albums

Very early music from members of the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND will be released on CD for the first time March 27, and vinyl that has been out of print since the late 1960’s will be available as well. In all, four albums will trace three of the band member’s nascent music projects including the Allman Joys, Hour Glass and 31st of February.

Formed just out of high school and originally called The Escorts and then Allman Joys, Duane and Gregg Allman recorded the band’s only session work in August 1966, which wouldn’t be released until 1973 and has been out of print since. After the Allman Joys went their own ways, Duane and Gregg formed Hour Glass, releasing their self-titled debut in 1967 and Power Of Love in 1968, both on the Liberty label. What is telling in these early recordings are hints of what would become signature Allman Brothers Band sounds. You can hear moments of what would become guitarist Duane Allman’s signature licks, as well as his little brother Gregg’s Hammond B-3 prowess and his soulful, bluesy voice.

NEW COLLECTION, AVAILABLE AS 10LP DELUXE VINYL BOX, 5CD SET AND DIGITALLY, ASSEMBLES HALF CENTURY OF CLASSICS, LIVE PERFORMANCES, RARITIES AND SEVEN PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED TRACKS INCLUDING THE BAND’S VERY FIRST RECORDING – THEIR ORIGINAL 1969 DEMO OF

Los Angeles – January 14, 2020 – When Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks, Dickey Betts, Duane Allman, Jaimoe, and Gregg Allman finally coalesced in 1969 as The Allman Brothers Band, after stints in other bands and musical endeavors – some alone, some with each other – the group’s very first informal jam together was the stomping Muddy Waters song, “Trouble No More.” Almost immediately the six musicians knew they were on to something special. Shortly after, it also became the very first song they officially demoed together for their eponymous debut record, an album that would begin their legendary, unparalleled, and often times, turbulent journey as one of the best American rock bands to ever exist.

The Brothers: March 10 at Madison Square Garden
 
Posted on Friday, January 03, 2020 - 11:52 AM

THE BROTHERS


CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF THE MUSIC OF THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND


MARCH 10 AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN


TICKET PRESALES JANUARY 7; PUBLIC ON SALE JANUARY 10
Ticket Information at Ticketmaster


The Brothers – Celebrating 50 Years of the music of The Allman Brothers Band will perform at Madison Square Garden in New York City for one night only March 10, 2020. The Brothers—Jaimoe, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Oteil Burbridge, Marc Quinones—will be joined by Duane Trucks and Reese Wynans and special guest Chuck Leavell. Ticket presales begin on January 7, with public on sale on January 10 via Ticketmaster (click here).

This one-time concert event, produced by Live Nation, will be a celebration of The Allman Brothers Band’s illustrious career. It notably marks the first time in more than five years that these legendary players will be together on stage to perform their iconic hits, and the first time since the passing of founding members Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks. It will undoubtably be emotionally charged, and an unforgettable night not to be missed.

“I can’t wait to play again with my Brothers.”
--Jaimoe

“From the Fillmore East to the Beacon, NYC has always been a spiritual home for the Allman Brothers. So it only feels natural to honor uncle Butch, Gregg, Berry, Duane and all the other brothers and sisters we have lost along the way here at MSG. I’m excited to get to play these songs with Jaimoe and the Brothers one last time to celebrate 50 years of this music.”
--Derek Trucks

"Hard to believe it’s been five years since our final show at the Beacon. We had all talked about doing a final show at Madison Square Garden which never came to fruition. What a great way to honor 50 years of music and fulfill that wish at the same time.”
--Warren Haynes

“I was fortunate enough to be a part of the Allman Brothers Band’s history for 23 of the 50 years we are about to celebrate. Thank you Butch, Gregg, Jaimoe, Dickey as well as Duane and Berry for giving us the opportunity to play this amazing music for all of our diehard, loyal fans.”
--Marc Quinones

“I’m so glad to get the chance to pay tribute to 50 years of the enduring music of the Allman Brothers Band. I’m blessed to have been a part of their story. It’s gonna be a night to remember.”
--Oteil Burbridge

Fillmore West '71 - Allman Brothers Band Live Four CD Set Coming Sept 6
 
Posted on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 - 01:50 PM


Preorder Now from The Big House Museum Store

As part of the ongoing celebration of their 50th anniversary, on September 6 the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND Recording Company--caretakers of the original band's unreleased catalog--in conjunction with distributor The Orchard will release a four-CD set titled Fillmore West '71, culled from an epic weekend of live music recorded at the legendary San Francisco venue. The Grammy-winning, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band (formed in March 1969) were in great form on this weekend, where they were the middle act playing between headliners Hot Tuna and the 24-piece opener Trinidad Tripoli Street Band. This will be the debut release of these recordings. The packaging contains a front cover photo of Duane Allman from Jim Marshall Photography (taken at these shows) that has rarely been seen before.

Rolling Stone exclusively debuted the band's "rollicking rendition" of the Muddy Waters classic "Trouble No More;" listen now here.

Compiled from reel-to-reel soundboard masters, the January 29 show that kicks off this collection reads like an Allman Brothers Band greatest hits, from opener "Statesboro Blues" through the set-wrapping "Whipping Post." On the next night, the standard sequence of "Statesboro Blues," Trouble No More," "Don't Keep Me Wonderin'" and "Elizabeth Reed" was typically riveting, and then the blues-soaked "Stormy Monday" was worked in, replacing "Midnight Rider." Gregg's vocals were visceral and honest, while Duane and Dickey added down and dirty licks. "You Don't Love Me" showcased some run-and-gun guitar work, and a frenzied "Whipping Post" closed out another solid night. The band--Duane Allman, Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Jaimoe, Berry Oakley and Butch Trucks--were loose and talkative and you can hear them really dialing their sound in at what would be a final tune-up for the seminal At Fillmore East album, recorded less than two months later. At Fillmore East would cement the band's place in rock history and Rolling Stone would eventually call it the second-best live album ever released.

Preorder Laid Back

Preorder Gregg Allman Tour

Los Angeles – July 12, 2019 – A few months after the Allman Brothers Band released their revered fourth studio album Brothers And Sisters, legendary frontman, vocalist, pianist Gregg Allman stepped out on his own with his masterful debut solo album Laid Back. Co-produced by Allman along with Johnny Sandlin, the collection of songs was a creative outlet where he was able to assume full control and explore his varying influences, including rhythm and blues and soul music. Exemplified by the album title’s relaxed approach, the songs were a departure from his band’s guitar-heavy sound in favor of gospel-tinged organs, slower tempos and a choir, all of which beautifully buoyed Allman’s soulful, and at times, mournful vocals. On several songs he sounds like a man reflecting on the last few tumultuous years which included the deaths of his bandmates, brother Duane Allman and Berry Oakley, hard touring and incredible success. Of the album, NPR wrote, “It's amazing stuff, deep and intense yet nowhere near the decibel levels of his work with the band. Allman is amazing when he's belting his heart out about being tied to the whipping post. But he's equally compelling — maybe even more so — in a quieter space, when he's less fired up.” Upon release in October 1973, Laid Back received positive reviews and peaked at number 13 on Billboard’s Top LPs & Tape chart while “Midnight Rider” became a top 20 hit across North America. To support the album, Allman embarked on an unprecedented tour accompanied by a 24-piece orchestra comprising members of the New York Philharmonic, which was captured for posterity on 1974’s The Gregg Allman Tour live album.

Wanee Music Festival 2019 Announcement
 
Posted on Monday, November 05, 2018 - 12:32 PM

The traditional weekend for the Wanee Music Festival in 2019 falls on the same weekend as Good Friday, Easter and Passover.

It has been the Wanee Festival experience in the past that many of our regular festival goers decide not to attend on this weekend, due to the holiday being one that many choose to spend with their family, friends and religious faith.

for this reason, the Wanee Music Festival will not take place in 2019 at the Spirit of the Suwanee Music Park.

Please stay tuned for future Wanee announcements.

Last Thursday, Dusty Hill of ZZ Top, was injured prior to an event in Texas. Dusty has subsequently undergone treatment for his fractured shoulder forcing the band to postpone many of their spring concert dates; including the May 7th Laid Back Festival performance in Atlanta.

Dusty Hill, offered this comment, "My physicians told me that this type of injury is usually associated with contact sports. I'm not sure bass-playing qualifies as such but they're doing their best to get me back in the game as soon as possible. Thanks to everyone for all the good wishes we've received. We're determined to enjoy a speedy recovery and to see you soon!"

Gregg Allman on NC HB2 Law and April 13 NC Show
 
Posted on Tuesday, April 12, 2016 - 04:05 PM
For over 45 years, I've been fortunate to play music all around this country and the world. I've been honored to know and be friends with many different people from all walks of life. Although we, as a nation, have made progress in many areas, it's sad and infuriating that some, in 2016, are still working so hard to take the rights away from our brothers and sisters, as in the cases of "bathroom laws"ť recently passed in North Carolina (HB2 Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act) and Mississippi ("Religious Liberty" bill 1523), discriminating against the LGBT community.

I know that North Carolina is a state full of good folks and loyal fans, many of whom are angry about and feel misrepresented by this action. My band and I will continue to play our show as scheduled there tomorrow, April 13, and hope that our music unites people in this challenging time. We stand in solidarity with the LGBT community urging Gov. McCrory to listen to the people and reverse this wrong.

Gregg Allman Live: Back to Macon, GA
 
Posted on Thursday, May 21, 2015 - 02:05 PM

A new Gregg Allman CD+DVD is coming out August 7, 2015.


On January 14, 2014, Gregg Allman brought his solo band to Macon for a performance at the venerable Grand Opera House, a 1,000 seat jewel of a theatre that was built in 1884. It was in this intimate setting that Gregg Allman Live: Back To Macon, GA was recorded.


Gregg took to the Grand Opera House stage with a group that, as he put it, “is a real kick-ass band.” Featuring Scott Sharrard on guitar, bassist Ron Johnson, Ben Stivers on keyboards, drummer Steve Potts, Allman Brothers veteran Marc Quinones on percussion, saxophonists Jay Collins and Art Edmaiston and Dennis Marion on trumpet, these eight players formed one of the best solo units Allman had fronted in years. With Gregg settled in behind his familiar Hammond B-3, Live: Back to Macon, GA kicks off with the familiar strains of “Statesboro Blues,” this time delivered with a horn-influenced sway. “I love having a horn section, man; it adds a real swing to the band,” Gregg noted. The crowd energy amped up another notch when Scott Sharrard picked out the opening licks to “I’m No Angel,” the title track to Gregg’s 1986 comeback album.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Even if he’d never formed the Allman Brothers Band, Duane Allman would be a major figure in American popular music.

On March 5, 2013, Rounder Records, a division of Concord Music Group, will release the most ambitious retrospective of Allman’s short but influential career titled Skydog: The Duane Allman Retrospective.

The deluxe seven-disc collection, carrying a list price of $139.98, contains the guitarist’s best-known and most commercially successful recordings with the Allman Brothers Band and Derek & the Dominos, as well as session work with Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Boz Scaggs, Clarence Carter, King Curtis, Delaney & Bonnie & Friends, Ronnie Hawkins, Otis Rush, Laura Nyro, Lulu, the Sweet Inspirations, Laura Lee, Spencer Wiggins, Arthur Conley, Willie Walker, the Lovelles, the Soul Survivors, Johnny Jenkins, John Hammond, Doris Duke, Eric Quincy Tate, Herbie Mann and more.

Allman Brothers Band - Nothing Short of a Stupendous Experience
 
Posted on Monday, October 01, 2007 - 09:38 AM
Allman Brothers Band Rosemont Theatre August 29, 2007
By: Anthony Kuzminski

For years I have heard about the lore of the legendary Allman Brothers Band and their concerts. Those who speak of the shows do so in a mystical manner and I can't even express how poetic these people feel about this band, their music and their musical inclinations. I had never witnessed this breathtaking communal experience until the band rolled into Chicago recently and I wasn't quite sure what to expect but what I found was a group whose musical heritage, aura and aptitude to be immense.

Allman Brothers Band Stunning and Immensely Inspired
 
Posted on Wednesday, August 15, 2007 - 02:36 PM
By: Chris Cooper
For: The Smoky Mountain News

So, answer me this: how many people, artists especially, can maintain a vital career for 38 years and counting? Musically speaking, how many of them could possibly continue performing material from their first few albums and still manage to find new places to go with it, new colors and interpretations even after countless lineup changes, deaths, drug debacles and all manner of inner turmoil, let alone the multitude of cultural climate shifts that inevitably come with doing anything for nearly 40 years?

OK, before you guys engage in hours of pointless bickering over these questions, here’s the answer we’re looking for — the Allman Brothers Band. Lauded (blamed?) as the creators of “southern rock,” inspiration to countless Les Paul wielding, slide-bearing noodlers, keepers of the “10-minute guitar solos really ARE cool as long as they go somewhere” flame. Gregg Allman and band have staked a claim so deep into the heart of southern consciousness that I’d bet some of us were born with the melody to “Jessica” flitting around in our minds. Either that or we were merely subjected to copious amounts of classic rock radio in our formative years. Probably both.

Live Music On Demand
 
Posted on Thursday, December 15, 2005 - 05:45 AM

For: USA Today
December 14, 2005

In pop antiquity, the fan who missed the hot-ticket rock show had to settle for a breathless critique, a muddy bootleg or the negligible possibility that a song, buffed and overdubbed, might crop up years later on a live album.

Today, consumers can pick up freshly pressed CDs of a concert while leaving the venue or point and click to the experience without leaving their driveways. The boom in live recordings, enjoying unprecedented vitality in the marketplace, is opening new revenue streams for artists while expanding the sonic smorgasbord for listeners.

And while bands are usurping bootleggers by issuing live material, many also allow fans to freely tape and trade shows, which has created enormous vaults of recorded concerts online.

Why the Allman Brothers Band is the Allman Brothers Band
 
Posted on Wednesday, December 29, 2004 - 08:17 AM
The Allman Brothers Band developed their recipe in 1969, just like Colonel Sanders developed the recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken, it doesn’t matter who’s doin’ the cookin’ as long as his recipe is being followed by people capable of following it - it will be KFC Chicken.

Regardless if they actually realized their formula at the time, it was formed, with two main ingredients:
Number 1. Very capable and talented musicianship.
Number 2. Honesty & raw emotion.

Mark McGee--Gregg Allman's Crusing Guitar Shark
 
Posted on Wednesday, June 02, 2004 - 03:18 AM
By: Bill Thames

Cruising the music scene, just below the surface, like a shark looking for the next place to strike; Gregg Allman and Friends guitarist, Mark McGee continues to transform and evolve, demonstrating how incredibly diverse he can be. Much like legendary guitarist, Danny Gatton, Mark McGee remains one of the world's greatest unknown guitar players.

A determined musician from the time he was twelve years old, Mark's professional career has spanned the past two and a half decades, and has taken him from Topeka to Tokyo—and beyond. Mark began his professional career early, playing in various San Francisco Bay area based bands, paying his dues in the local clubs, and sharing the stage with such acts as Metallica, Blue Oyster Cult, Randy Hansen, Loudness, Ratt, Y & T, and Quiet Riot. During this time Mark became a highly respected guitarist, and began to make a name for himself in ever-widening music circles.

Feel Oteil
 
Posted on Saturday, May 15, 2004 - 04:39 PM
By: EasyMichael

I received my June 2004 “Bass Player” magazine this week, and there’s a very nice mention of Oteil’s playing in the “BP Recommends” CD reviews section. In reviewing “One Way Out: Live at the Beacon Theater”, Chris Jisi writes:

“Putting your own indelible signature on a famous bass chair is no small feat, yet that is precisely what Oteil Burbridge has accomplished in his seven years with the Allmans. On this worthy live double-CD, from the band’s 2003 annual spring trek to New York, Oteil (on his Fodera 6 and ‘64 Fender Jazz) interprets the guitar-sparring lead bass of original Allman Berry Oakley on ‘70s standards like 'Don’t Keep Me Wondering' and the less-covered 'Wasted Words'. On newer tunes, like 'Rockin’ Horse', with its 16th-note finger-funk pulse, you can feel Oteil holding back the reins as the rest of the rhythm section threatens to run away from the pocket. Most notable is when Oteil gets to apply his considerable jazz-rooted improvising skills, as on the swinging 'Instrumental Illness' and the trippy 6/8 classic, 'Whipping Post'."

FIRST ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND RETROSPECTIVE TO SPAN 35-YEAR CAREER
 
Posted on Friday, May 14, 2004 - 07:08 PM
TWO-CD STAND BACK: THE ANTHOLOGY FEATURES ALL THE CLASSICS
AND MORE WITH 32 RECORDINGS


Thirty-five years after their recording debut, there is still no other group like The Allman Brothers Band--authors of an indispensable style of American music that became known as Southern Rock, they grew into a musical icon culminating with their 1994 induction into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Now the Brothers have a retrospective like none other in their lengthy history.

The two-CD Stand Back: The Anthology (Hip-O/UMe), released June 8, 2004, is the first collection to feature tracks spanning The Allman Brothers Band’s entire 35 years (1969-2003), from their groundbreaking work on Capricorn until moving on to Arista in the early ‘80s followed by Sony in the ‘90s and their current Sanctuary-distributed, self-owned Peach Records. These 32 recordings, each newly digitally remastered, include at least one from each of their 13 studio albums plus the quintessential Live At Fillmore East. The package also boasts a deluxe 24-page color booklet containing numerous photos, an essay and detailed credits.

Paul Hornsby-Macon His Own Way
 
Posted on Wednesday, May 05, 2004 - 07:42 PM
By: Bill Thames

Other than being extraordinarily gifted guitar players, what do Duane Allman, Elvin Bishop, and Eddie Hinton all have in common? The answer is—that they all considered Paul Hornsby a close friend, a marvelous musical talent on the road, and one of the finest engineers/producers in the recording industry. The list of names certainly does not stop there. Paul has played, and recorded with some of the finest musicians and vocalists that the South has to offer; Gregg Allman, Bonnie Bramlett, Scott Boyer, and Tommy Talton of Cowboy, The Marshall Tucker Band, Charlie Daniels, Tim Hardin, Dr. John, Chuck Leavell, and Alex Taylor. Those names just scratch the surface. The list, like the road, goes on forever. His production credits, however, are astonishingly impressive. In the early 1970’s, while working for Capricorn Records, in Macon, GA as a staff studio musician, and with only a few months of production experience under his belt, Paul began producing such groups as The Marshal Tucker Band, Charlie Daniels, Grinderswitch, Bobby Whitlock, and Wet Willie. The walls in his substantial studio office in Macon are crowded with gold records, but Paul intentionally saves room for more. I found Paul to be a soft-spoken gentleman who takes his past accomplishments in stride, and constantly looks ahead to the remaining love of his life, the future of music.

The ABB's 2003 Instant Live Series is Back!
 
Posted on Wednesday, April 28, 2004 - 03:55 PM
The Allman Brothers Band's previously sold out series of 6 Instant Live CDs from their legendary 2003 summer tour has been re-printed and is now available through a special pre-sale promotion from Kid Glove Enterprises.

"Magical" best describes the summer of 2003 for the ABB. They soared through classic tunes from their roots, dropped jaws with their powerful version of Layla (especially in Charlotte), left audiences awe-struck with stellar new material from "Hittin' the Note", and pulled out all the stops with surprising guest artists like Branford Marsalis sitting in on sax in Raleigh.

Now you can re-capture the magic of Charlotte, Raleigh, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Buffalo (Darien Lake), and Hartford with these unique recordings whose near-perfect blend of soundboard and microphone mixes clearly surpasses audience or soundboard-only shows.

Each of these incredible ABB shows encompasses 3 CDs and comes packaged in unique, durable Instant Live digipacs. Single shows are $20.00 each, plus shipping and handling, or the complete series, 6 shows, can be yours for $100.00, plus shipping and handling through this special pre-sale offer by clicking HERE. All orders placed during this pre-sale offer, which runs until May 16, 2004, WILL BE FILLED! A June 2004 delivery is anticipated.

Review of One Way Out by Tom Clarke, King Biscuit Time magazine
 
Posted on Wednesday, April 07, 2004 - 12:50 PM
In a scene played out similarly some 150 times in the last 13 years, people of varying ages and walks of life buzz around under the brightly scripted marquee in anticipation of a communal rock ‘n’ roll happening. As I write this, The Allman Brothers Band are on stage two and a half hours south, wrapping up the final night of their latest two-week-long engagement at the Beacon Theatre. The esteemed group—celebrating the big 35 this year—certainly loves the place just as much as their fans, many of whom make the pilgrimage to New York City’s upper west side year after year and stay for several, if not all of the shows. The Allmans are one of the few bands of any era who enjoy that devotion.

ONE WAY OUT, The Allman Brothers Band (Peach/Sanctuary Records)

Southern blues rock gods the Allman Brothers Band celebrate their 35th anniversary this year, and for a band whose legal and internal troubles are as storied as its music, it's quite a revival. With its annual Beacon Theater residency in New York City under way and a sizeable summer tour in the works, the Allmans are also celebrating with two new releases: first a DVD, released in October, and second a live CD, just out - both culled from last year's incendiary Beacon run.

"One Way Out" is one of the finest albums of the band's career: an 18-song testament to how the band's latest lineup - its eighth overall - is its best since the original, and how in performance, improvisational ability and musicality the ABB is suddenly one of the best live bands on the planet again, period.

For the past two weeks, while countless lucky Allman Brothers Band fans have been gathering in New York City, and swarming over the Beacon Theater, those of us left behind were doubtlessly searching for something to take our minds off the concerts that we were missing. This past weekend, while the Allman Brothers were winding-up another landmark Beacon stand in New York City, I was fortunate enough to experience what I would consider the next best thing to hearing the Allman Brothers live—hearing the Randall Bramblett Band.

His favorite band? Queen. Not late-'90s rock outfit Queens of the Stone Age, not late-'80s metal band Queensryche and certainly not latter-day rap diva Queen Latifah.

Jamie reveres the glam-metal British quartet that flourished in the '70s with mock operatic Bohemian Rhapsody and the anthemic We Will Rock You.

"I don't like new wannabe punk like Good Charlotte," he says. "Led Zeppelin was the first old band I liked. Then Pink Floyd. Now it's The Who and Queen."

One contemporary band that he does appreciate is U.K. sensation The Darkness. Why? "They're similar to Queen."

"One Way Out" is Essential

By: Thom Jurek
For: All Music Guide

Do we really need another live double CD by the Allman Brothers Band? Oh yeah. In fact, when they play this well, we need them in droves. This collection marks the second time the Allman Brothers have issued music from their storied shows at the Beacon Theater in New York. The first, Peakin' at the Beacon, was issued in 2000 with Dickey Betts and Derek Trucks in the lineup. Betts had not yet been fired and Warren Haynes was yet to return to the fold. While Betts is a singular voice and is one of the pillars of the ABB's sound, this new version of the band with Trucks and Haynes manning the guitars has gelled into a formidable unit; in fact, they are something spectacular. Add to the fact that Gregg Allman is singing and playing better than at any time in his life (and Haynes is no slouch either), and you have the best live band in the world, bar none.

A Night to Honor Bands That Jam

For The New York Times

Imagine current pop turned inside out. Playing concerts
would be a living rather than a promotional tool, bands
would take musical chances nightly, wardrobe would be an afterthought, a
group could release a dozen live albums a year, and gray hair and
wrinkles would garner respect. Fans would bypass radio and television
and get information from other fans (via the Internet), and music's past
would be a foundation rather than a scrap heap.

Beacon Feels like the Fillmore East to The ABB

For The North Jersey Bergen Record

After 35 years of life, death, booze, and scandal, a mellower Gregg Allman still keeps his mind on the road.

"I'm looking out at my back yard right now, watching a river go by," says a gravel-voiced Allman from his Savannah, Ga., home. "I'm down here in paradise. And yet I'm aching right now to get to New York to go play."

He won't have to wait much longer. The Allman Brothers Band - which has undergone a number of reformations through its long and sometimes turbulent history - will continue an annual tradition started 15 years ago when it appears for a string of March dates at Manhattan's Beacon Theatre. Beginning Thursday, the shows coincide with the release of the band's new CD, "One Way Out," featuring live performances from last year's "March Madness" run at the Beacon.

These past two shows are the best two I've ever seen. Last night was enormous. No compromise, all the jams were huge. It was mainly Derek's night, Warren almost conceeded to him at times, I thought, even though he was scorching all night also.

Opened with Black Hearted and the end jam teased the Other One a little more than usual. Warren was playing some of his O1 riffs he does with Phil & Friends. There were several Other One teases throughout the show.

Forget the T-shirt, here's the ultimate impulse buy at a concert: A compact disc recording of a show you just saw, available before you leave the venue. And Raleigh is one of the first cities in the country where it's being tried.
After 18 months of preparation, Clear Channel Entertainment will unveil its arena-size "Instant Live" program at the Allman Brothers' North Carolina concerts -- Saturday in Charlotte and Sunday at Raleigh's Alltel Pavilion at Walnut Creek. Within minutes of the end of both shows, concertgoers can buy a three-disc set for $25.

SCRANTON - It's appropriate that the latest CD from the Allman Brothers Band is titled "Hittin' the Note" because that's exactly what the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers did on Friday night at the Ford Pavilion at Montage Mountain.

The Allmans, who have played Montage six times, still pack a hefty punch and wasted no time in dishing out its blistering brand of guitar-fueled rock and blues. The band opened with "Every Hungry Woman" and followed with "You Don't Love Me." "Statesboro Blues" was met with a roar by the crowd of 3,750, and Gregg Allman's soulful and raspy vocals also brought the right touch to the new "Woman Across the River."

Allman Brothers Band Soaring

Copyright 2003, Chicago Tribune. All Rights Reserved.

In its 34-year history, the Allman Brothers Band has had 20 different members, with drummer Butch Trucks being the only constant in the lineup. The group has had to reinvent itself repeatedly to adjust to the loss of key members such as original guitarists Duane Allman and Dickey Betts and even, for a time, lead vocalist and organist Gregg Allman.

Their current lineup, which began a two-night stand Tuesday at a nearly sold-out Chicago Theatre, brings together three generations of musicians to produce some of the most exciting music the band has delivered since the halcyon days of the original lineup in the early '70s.

daloi@stargazette.com

The recipe was fairly simple for the largest concert gathering in history. All it took was three top rock bands, a large piece of land and the hint that it could be another Woodstock.

The bands were the Grateful Dead, The Band and the Allman Brothers Band. The land was the Watkins Glen Grand Prix circuit (now Watkins Glen International). The date was Saturday, July 28, 1973, and the event was Summer Jam.

More than 600,000 people - one person out of every 400 in America at the time - came from far and wide to the concert, held 30 years ago Monday.

How many times have you gone to a concert and wished you had a live recording of it? In the past, the best way to get one was from a bootlegger who charged hefty prices for recordings with quality so poor it could make the dog wince. There were a couple of exceptions, notably the Grateful Dead and Phish, that allowed fans to tape their shows with decent audio gear. But most acts quashed any live recordings of their shows and thus opened the market to pirates.

That's changing. Not only are a growing number of bands recording their shows and selling them to fans online, but music industry titan Clear Channel, after testing instant live CD production in a couple of local clubs, is about to announce that it's moving the program into larger venues.

Clear Channel has joined forces with the Allman Brothers Band to roll out its ''Instant Live'' CD program in two North Carolina amphitheaters starting Saturday, August 9, in Charlotte and Sunday, August 10, in Raleigh. For these dates, Clear Channel expects to use 27 CD burners, each of which can turn out eight copies in 3 1/2 minutes. Proceeds from sales of the instant CDs -- expected to be a three-CD set that will cost at least $20 -- will be split equally between the band and Clear Channel.

"Tonight's the last show (of the tour), I think it's gonna be very special," Allman Brothers Band guitarist Warren Haynes said before his group's 160-minute set.

He wasn't kidding. The Allmans jump-started the night with a startling version of the classic rock opus "Layla," with a ridiculously melodic slide guitar coda by Derek Trucks.

Before they were done, they added an effective take of Van Morrison's "Into the Mystic" and a riotous "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl" featuring lacerating lead guitar work from Haynes.

ALLMANS DIG RIGHT DOWN TO THE SOUL

MANSFIELD - To the shock and delight of 13,000 fans, the Allman Brothers Band pulled a few surprises at the Tweeter Center on Sunday. No, we're not talking about any Allman obscurities or new songs from the band's latest CD, "Hittin' the Note." What surprised the loyalists were unusually soulful versions of tunes from early Allman peers such as Derek and the Dominos and Van Morrison.

Much has been said about how the Allmans have settled into a more relaxed groove these days, and that was apparent when they opened with "Layla" (by the Eric Clapton-led Derek and the Dominos, assisted by the late Duane Allman) and later did "Into the Mystic" by Morrison. The first was given an earthy sensuality, the second sensitive vocals from the normally gritty Warren Haynes, topped by slide-guitar riffs from Derek Trucks that replaced the sax fills on the original. The Allmans have played "Layla" on special occasions, but only as an encore, not as an opener. And "Into the Mystic" has only popped up sporadically.

The Allman Brothers Band is kind of like the Energizer Bunny. It just keeps going, and going and going. The forefathers of Southern Rock brought its distinctively blues-based sound to the Muskegon Summer Celebration Thursday night, July 3, giving a standing and dancing crowd of 14,000 its money's worth.
With a rich history of over 30 years together, the Allmans are an institution in rock. While the only original members left are vocalist and keyboardist Gregg Allman, and drummers Butch Trucks and Johnny "Jaimoe" Johanson, the band has survived and is running strong.

Allmans: New, clearly improved

For the Cincinnati Post

Without the clean guitar licks of Dickey Betts, fans of the Allman Brothers Band seemed left to wonder whether the group still packed creative might in the studio and on stage. Or was the 34-year run for the legendary blues/Southern rock band over? Betts left the Brothers nearly three years ago when band members -- led by Greg Allman -- said Betts no longer fit the band's musical direction and that he had lost his dazzle on stage.

With Betts' departure, so went such stirring trademark songs as "Rambling Man," "Jessica" and "Blue Skies" from the Brothers' stage show, leaving fans curious whether the reassembled Brothers could continue to draw their young and old loyalists. At Riverbend Music Center on Tuesday, July 1, the new and clearly improved Brothers showed that life moves on even without Betts' musical genius and that the band has found new energy in the studio and on stage.

Positioned just so at the Bonnaroo Music Festival on Friday, one could hear Lucinda Williams' languid folk-rock, the sweaty saxophone funk of Joshua Redman and the exploratory rock sounds of Tortoise. "I was out in the playground with my kids, and I could hear all three," Al Schnier said. "It was a good smash-up."

Schnier, who plays guitar for the jam band Moe, wasn't scheduled to perform until Sunday, but he came early to soak up the atmosphere and catch some of more than 60 musical acts. Schnier was joined by 82,000 people (up a few thousand from the inaugural Bonnaroo in 2002). Fans began setting up camp in 650 acres of Middle Tennessee hayfields Wednesday, and most will leave Monday after a weekend of music that defies easy categorization.

About 80,000, 20,000 more than came last year to the first Bonnaroo music festival, camped on the grounds in trucks, tents and RV's, and took in at least 60 musical acts that per-formed on five huge festival stages. They paid $140 for a ticket to hear scheduled acts such as James Brown, The Dead, Emmy Lou Harris, The Allman Brothers Band and much, much, more.

The sites are named for various hairstyles, such as Camp Bowl Cut, Camp Bee Hive, Camp Afro and Camp Supermullet.

Alan Paul strikes again with another great Allman Brothers Band interview feature. Appropriately titled "All in the Family," the five page spread in Guitar World Acoustic No. 60 features great color and black & white shots of the guys playing acoustic, and an interview with Gregg, Warren, and Derek.


Subtitled "Guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks step up big time on Hittin' The Note, the Allman Brothers Band's first studio album in almost a decade," the article touches on the ABB's increasing popularity, the new album, and of course the ABB's inclusion of acoustic material in their repertoire. Gregg offers some insights on Duane's dobro playing, Derek discusses his love of Indian classical music and why he plays in open E tuning, and Warren talks about some surprising musical influences including James Taylor and Jackson Browne!

A Tale of Two Guitars

By: Ben Ratliff
For the New York Times

Each year, the Allman Brothers Band repeats a remarkable feat: filling the Beacon Theater night after night in a true New York City residency. As with the late-period Grateful Dead, the group's records are souvenirs more than essential documents — a couple of live albums in the last decade; the brand-new "Hittin' the Note" (Sanctuary) is its first studio album of new songs in nine years. The shows are the thing. Guests (including Béla Fleck) have drifted in and out of sets, as has a small horn section. But Tuesday's show, filmed for a future DVD, represented the band in its plain state, working through a mixture of old and new songs. The septet is as sturdy as ever, basically supported by the drummer Butch Trucks, the singer and keyboardist Gregg Allman and the guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks.

Allman Brothers Rocks it in NYC

Allman Brothers rocks it in NYC

By Rebecca Shields - Johns Hopkins Newsletter
March 21, 2003

Thirty-four years later and still jamming like the 1970s, the Allman Brothers hit the stage Saturday night at the Beacon Theatre in New York City ready to recreate the musical magic of years before. The Brothers have often been referred to as the ultimate 1970s Southern rock band, combining blues, folk and rock. Best known for their 1973 album Brothers and Sisters -- fodder for their hit single, "Ramblin' Man" -- the band was back in full force Saturday night.

Perhaps the audience itself is evidence of the fusion of musical genres found in the Allman Brothers songs. The band has been able to reach across generations and encompass a musical genre that appeals to all audiences. High school freshmen and nursing home residents stood shoulder to shoulder in the audience. Sure, it may be embarrassing to see your best friend's father hit on a young girl and then proceed to offer you a joint, but that's exactly what the Brothers were going for -- connecting all types of people through their music. If anything, the variety of characters at Saturday's show, stemming from lawyers and doctors to bikers and hippies to frat boys, demonstrates the Allman Brothers' power to connect with America through music.

Band of Brothers Alive and Clicking
 
Posted on Wednesday, March 26, 2003 - 06:13 AM


By Dan Aquilante
For the New York Post, 3/21/03


When you wait long enough, history has a way of repeating itself. Take the Allman Brothers Band, which opened its annual March Madness run at the Beacon Theatre last week. It was more than 30 years ago that the band recorded their seminal, revered live album, "At Fillmore East."

At the show attended by The Post, the Allman Brothers marked that impressive milestone with a concert that offer the same primal blues rock with a fire that burned almost as bright today as it did then. The ABB also illustrated that they are a band in every sense.

Mixing the Allman Brothers Band
 
Posted on Saturday, March 08, 2003 - 08:34 PM
By: Candace Horgan
For Mix Online

The current incarnation of the Allman Brothers Band is unquestionably one of the strongest they've put together in their long history; some fans even believe it is comparable to the original lineup that included Duane Allman, Berry Oakley and Dicky Betts. This year marks the 31st anniversary of the group's seminal release, Live at Fillmore East, and the band, which now consists of Gregg Allman (keyboards and vocals), drummers Jaimoe and Butch Trucks, percussionist Marc Quińones, bassist Oteil Burbridge, and guitarists Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes, commemorated the anniversary with a three-night stand at Denver's Fillmore Auditorium in June 2002.

For this tour, the Allman Brothers are using an Electro-Voice X-Array line array system provided by db Sound (Mt. Prospect, Ill.). At the Fillmore, FOH engineer Bruce “Slim” Judd set up two XF long-throw cabinets and two XB double-18 bass cabinets per side, supplemented with two pairs of E-V's CN compact mid/high speaker. Additionally, the Fillmore setup included two X-Line subs on the floor with a 2×2 XCB compact single-18 bass cabinet on top of each. The system was powered by Electro-Voice P3000 amps, and Judd's drive rack included a Klark Teknik DN6000 Audio Analyzer, an Al Smart compressor for system compression, an XTA DP226 and two Klark Teknik 3600 stereo equalizers. “You can store 66 memories in those, so if you come back with the same band and P.A., you can call up your EQ and be ready to go,” notes Judd.

Hittin' the High Points of Hittin' the Note
 
Posted on Wednesday, March 05, 2003 - 06:35 AM


By: Sal Cirrincione
For: Rock Daily
Gregg Allman recently sat down with us to discuss the new ABB album and the story behind the disc's name:

Gregg Allman: We went in and cut this record over in Hoboken [N.J.]. The first day we went, we got four cuts; the second day we went, we got six cuts . . . I think it's the best thing we've done since my brother was around. I really think so. It felt like the old days, man. We laughed and we tried all new stuff. It was great. Anytime anybody had a problem, they'd just raise their hand and the music [would stop]. You [didn't] have all this noodling around and everything. Plus, we rehearsed these songs on the road the year before. Well, most of them -- about half of them. I'm not saying they were just academic, but we had a good hold on the feel of how they were supposed to go.

Michael Barbiero and [Haynes], they produced it. We laughed and ate exotic food and did it like it should be done, and everybody's surroundings were made comfortable. Everybody was musically nurturing of everybody else. It was great. The spontaneity was back, and the new licks were back. Musically, this band is happier than they've ever been and as enthusiastic as they've ever been.

'Hittin' the note' is a term that I used to use in the studio. I can't remember if I first used it or if I heard it somewhere, but this was a long time ago. If you wanted something softer, you'd say, 'Play it a little more laid back,' and that's how I got the name for my first [solo] record. 'Hittin' the note' is something that Berry Oakley used to say, meaning that we were all on the same wavelength -- that we were all on the same page. Everything was in the pocket; all the biorhythms are on. It means a whole lot of things -- positive things like that. We'd come off the stage, and if he'd had a real good one, he'd say, 'Man, we were hittin' the damn note tonight!' He's the only person I've ever heard say that. I don't know where he got it. I never asked him. We didn't do it because of the magazine [of the same name], because that's not our magazine. We don't own any of it or anything like it. We were going to name it something else, but it was kind of a conflict . . . we were going to name it Victory Dance, but hell, we were just in a lawsuit. It had nothing to do with that, but we just threw it out there and got a few people's opinions, and I thought we were going to go with that one. But they came back to us -- our advisers -- and said, 'Guys, you might want to rethink this. If you want it we'll go with it, but . . .' Butch came up and said, 'Hell, let's finally call it Hittin' the Note.'

Draw a Bead on Some Fun
 
Posted on Friday, February 21, 2003 - 06:54 PM

From the Orlando Sentinel.

The beads will fly as Universal Studios' eighth annual Mardi Gras gets under way tonight. We're talking millions of strands of beads, the ones that are pitched from the colorful floats, 14 of them, designed by Blaine Kern, whose New Orleans company has built Mardi Gras floats since 1932.

The theme of the 2003 parade is "The Best Things in Life," with floats themed to favorite forms of entertainment. Besides the floats, the parade features stiltwalkers and street performers. Plus, this year's lineup for the Saturday-night concert series contains bigger names than ever. Sugar Ray is the headliner Saturday with these acts to follow: Allman Brothers Band March 1, Lynyrd Skynyrd March 8, Hootie and the Blowfish March 15, LIVE March 22, Counting Crows March 29, KC & the Sunshine Band with the Village People April 5, Willie Nelson April 12, Smash Mouth April 19 and Chris Isaak April 26. All shows begin at 8:30 p.m.

On nights that big-name performers aren't booked, various house bands perform. The concerts have moved to a new venue, the Yard, which is near the soundstages, between the Twister ride and Nickelodeon Studios. Such New Orleans foodie attractions as jambalaya, shrimp gumbo and crawfish etouffe are available for buying.

"Jaimoe here. To whom it may interest, I am playing 2/27/03 at Club Mesa , 802 Columbus @ 100th, New York City with The Richard Boulger Quintet featuring Jay Collins, saxophones. Richard & Jay are two of the horn players in "Gregg Allman & Friends. We had a ball on the 13th. Charles "Honeyboy" Otis came by and gave me an "A+".

A cat sat in and sang a song, great singer. But more so the piano & bass player are from Paris. They would discuss songs in French before we would play. Cool Kool Kuul.

Hi,

I see that the IRSA benefit album (6/11/92) seems to be missing from the above; a very fine album indeed! Also a couple of European and Antipodean collections and compilations: Madness of the West; All Live; The Best of the Allman Brothers Live.

All the best, and keep up the good work,

Duane And Gregg
 
Posted on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 11:40 AM
This is an addition to your discography. The album is entitled Duane and Gregg. It is an early Polydor release. The album cover features the same likenesses as on Idlewild South (white outline drawings of Duane and Greggs faces on a black background) The sound quality of this record is actually quite poor but it features some outstanding soulful studio performances. It has a different rendition of Mellissa from the later Allman Bros. release. A beatiful God Rest His Soul. A very bluesy Nobody Loves You When You're Down and Out and an awesome Morning Dew. These songs and the rest of the album were raw and deep and meaningful. I've never seen it re-released on CD. If anyone has please let me know!

Allmans Ready New CD
 
Posted on Saturday, December 14, 2002 - 12:00 PM
By: Andrew Dansby
For Rolling Stone 12/13/2002


The Allman Brothers Band are putting the finishing touches on a new studio album, which, if it hits a projected March release date, will be its first in almost nine years. The record will also be the Allman's first with a reconfigured lineup that now includes guitar whiz Derek Trucks instead of original Brother Dickey Betts.

"We're all real proud of it," says guitarist Warren Haynes, a "new" Brother with more than twelve years of service. "The vibe of making the record -- writing the material and putting it together -- was the best that its been in a really long time. Everybody's excited and it feels like it's the best Allman Brothers Band record in many, many years."

Haynes co-produced the album with Michael Barbiero (a longtime collaborator with Haynes' other band, Gov't Mule), whose resume also includes production and mixing duty on albums by Guns n' Roses, Metallica, Cypress Hill and Blues Traveler. The album, for which the group is still trying to find a title, will include covers of the Rolling Stones' "Heart of Stone" and Freddie King's "Woman Across the River." Also on the set will be "Rocking Horse," a song Haynes co-wrote with Gregg Allman and originally recorded on Gov't Mule's 1995 self-titled debut. Also dusted off was "Mydelle," which Haynes co-wrote with ex-Allmans keyboardist Johnny Neel for the band's 1990 album, Seven Turns. "Desdemona," "All Before My Time," Firing Line" and "High Cost of Low Living" are also among the new songs that might be familiar to those who have caught the band in concert recently.

Allman Brothers Better Than Ever
 
Posted on Monday, October 14, 2002 - 07:18 PM
By: Ralph Berrier Jr.
The Roanoke Times

Really, the Allman Brothers shouldn't still be this good.

The band hasn't even been a brother act since 1971. Duane Allman died 31 years ago. Berry Oakley died a year later. The group fired charter member Dickey Betts two years ago and hasn't had a hit album in years. It could've gone on autopilot years ago and still maintained a fan base. Why, then, is the configuration of the Allmans that took the stage Wednesday night at the Salem Civic Center as good as - or, goodness gracious, better than - any lineup the group has put on the stage in the last three decades?

First and foremost, credit has to go to Gregg Allman, who has soldiered on through the years, battling personal demons along the way, to keep a group together that lives up to the Allmans' towering legacy. He and original members Butch Trucks and Jaimoe Jai Johanny have never let the group rest on its name and disintegrate into a doddering old bunch of jammers who ease through a show on cruise control. Songs might be loaded with improvisational playing, but the band stays tight and focused and steers clear of overbearing musical self-indulgence.

What an incredible night of music, beginning with The Derek Trucks Band. I'm just starting to get familiar with this music and this was my first time to see them live, wow, I can't wait to see them in October in Athens; Patty and Randall, make plans for that one!

I love to watch Derek play, his facial expressions....and yes, his soul comes out. This music is truly joyous, my favorite song is Joyful Noise, it really got the crowd up and everyone was groovin', it's fun, it's spirit filled, touching and energizing. I am a Derek Trucks Band fan, ya'll, yes I am! I love this music! It's mature, refreshing, funky, jazzy, bluesy......get cha some!!

mmm...before I go to bed, I decided to drop back by and say that last night (Salem, VA, 9/18/02), we got the Derek Dreams. As much as I love that tune and as many times as I've heard it live & on tape, I couldn't say I've ever heard a more muscular, tighter version. It was the kind where you're throwing air punches with every beat, and every punch is right on the beat, and every note escalates from the one before. I thought my heart was going to leap up in my throat. The only way It could've been any better was if Beth had been alongside us.

The Allman Brothers Band is Only Getting Better With Age

Savannah Morning News

Seeing an Allman Brothers show is a lot like seeing the past come to life. Songs that were written and performed more than 30 years ago still have the same energy and distinct sound that made the band famous.

Sure, Duane Allman and Berry Oakley, two original band members, have been dead for nearly that long. And guitarist Dickey Betts wasn't there either.

But for those at the Savannah Civic Center on Tuesday night, it didn't matter. What they saw was the best of the past and the present.

It's Still a Family Celebration
 
Posted on Wednesday, September 18, 2002 - 07:55 PM

Palm Beach Post

The Allman Brothers Band has always been about family. From the communal Big House during the pre-fame days in Macon, Ga., to the present of comfortable living and noodling grandchildren, good times and bad, death and divorce, the family has persevered... and thrived.

"I'm having a (expletive) ball," drummer Butch Trucks said after the band's show Friday at Coral Sky Amphitheatre. Fun, despite former guitarist Dickey Betts, who was fired two years ago for too many chemical problems. Call it tough love or modern reality, the parting has not been sweet, but band manager Burt Holman said Betts' suit for illegal termination should be resolved soon. Nevertheless, observers say both the Allmans and Betts sound better now that they're apart.

NEW-LOOK ALLMANS SOUND STILL REIGNS

Palm Beach Post
9/15/02

By BILL MEREDITH

Jam bands are the music industry's current rage, even if most are only non-jazz groups that improvise (often because they can't compose decent music).

But 30 years before the term existed, the Allman Brothers Band was pushing the improv envelope - plus composing great material with influences of jazz, blues. , Gospel, rock and Latin music.

Friday night at the Coral Sky Arnphitheatre, the Allmans proved their superiority over jamming imitators with a colossal 21/2-hour set of classic material and new tunes from a forthcoming untitled CD.

ABB's Ruth Ekerd Show is a Magical Doozy
 
Posted on Sunday, September 15, 2002 - 08:09 PM

By: Gina Vivinetto
St. Petersburg Times

CLEARWATER -- The Allman Brothers Band invited 2,149 fans at Saturday's spectacular sold-out show at Ruth Eckerd Hall to join it in its newest incarnation -- and it's a doozy. Founding members keyboardist Gregg Allman and drummer Butch Trucks, who got the band going in 1969 with Gregg's late brother Duane, are still in the fold, but some younger fellows are hogging up that stage front.

That's Butch's nephew Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes on dual guitars. Their magical interplay jumpstarted Hot 'Lanta, the show's opener. The momentum built over the next two and a half hours. Trucks, 23, is known as something of a guitar wunderkind. He's been on stages since he was 11 and has been with the Allman Brothers Band since 1999. Haynes, of the jam band Govt Mule, has replaced the volatile Dickey Betts who was dismissed from band two years ago. (With Betts' departure comes the absence of the tunes he wrote such as the hit Rambling Man.)

WOW!!! Caught the Brothers in West Palm Beach, FL last night. WOW!! Warren is amazing! Derek is a true artist. The drummers (all three) were so tight! The bassist - fantastic! Gregg was the best I have seen him in who knows how long. Thanks for a memorable night guys. Great musicians, I have noticed, get more polished and refined with age. You guys are a great example of this. See you soon!

Dean Martin (not that Dean Martin), came in from Saranac Lake for the show to attend his sixth Allman Brothers show. His friend Mark Calderone has a 30-year relationship with the band.

ABB Never Lack for Variety or Creativty
 
Posted on Thursday, August 22, 2002 - 07:00 AM
By: Dave Fennessy
Pittsburgh Daily News

For the past decade or so, an Allman Brothers Band concert has amounted to something of an "oldies" show, where established hits get replayed and often reinterpreted, depending on the shifting configuration of the band on any given tour.
Not to imply that's a bad thing.

With solid Hall-of-Fame credentials under their collective belt and an extensive catalogue of sweet southern blues at their fingertips, the Allmans never lack for variety or creativity.

Who can complain about a setlist that potentially might include classics such as "Ramblin' Man," "Statesboro Blues," "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" and "Whipping Post" all on the same night?

Those songs, plus a playlist of several dozen others besides, have kept ABB on the road - and a fiercely loyal fanbase in the seats, or at least dancing in the aisle beside them - for the better part of 33 years now.

Thirty-one years ago The Allman Brothers Band played its first ever concert in Saratoga. On many levels, this year's burning transcendent set was just as magical as way back then.

It was the sunny Saturday afternoon of May 15, 1971, that the ABB, then relatively unknown, stunned the unsuspecting listeners at a free show at Skidmore College with an amalgam of blues, country, jazz and rock. Many, many miles and years later, through tragedy and triumph, the ABB still stalwartly rock on.

On Saturday night, the Allman Brothers Band proved that the blues is a still-viable art form with an astounding, inspired performance at Darien Lake.

With a set that blended the best of the old with a handful of new selections from the band's forthcoming album, the Brothers made it quite clear that, with or without Dickie Betts, they are one of the finest acts currently touring.

The road may indeed go on forever for the Allman Brothers Band.
Drummer Butch Trucks says he and his bandmates are having the time of their lives. They're getting along famously, playing better than ever and have finished work on what Trucks said is "the best recording we've made in 30 years."

The band, marking its 33rd anniversary, makes its annual visit Saturday to Six Flags Darien Lake with no end in sight. Chalk it up to clean living - imagine saying that about what was once one of the most self-destructive bands in rock - and an injection of new talent since the group reunited in 1989.

Dope dealers are out. Personal trainers are in.

Dickey Betts is still out. Warren Haynes is not only back, he's credited with helping Gregg Allman rediscover his songwriting touch.

Drummer says the Allmans are having fun again
 
Posted on Friday, August 16, 2002 - 06:13 AM
By: Ed Masley
Post-Gazette Pop Music Critic
Friday, August 16, 2002

Two years ago, the Allman Brothers parted ways with founding member Dickey Betts.

Today, it's like a new band -- one with more than 30 years experience, a Hall of Fame induction and such jam-rock classics as "At Fillmore East" and "Eat a Peach" to its credit.

Things are so good now, in fact, that founding member Butch Trucks says, "I haven't had this much fun playing since Duane died."

Now, for those who haven't memorized their Allman Brothers history, Duane Allman (Gregg's brother) was killed in a motorcycle accident in Macon, Ga., in October of '71, a year before the band lost bassist Berry Oakley in a motorcycle accident remarkably close to where the greatest slide guitarist rock 'n' roll will ever know had crashed his bike.

But back to why the band is doing well today, the drummer explains, "There's a lot of experimentation. A lot of playing around. A lot of give and take. A lot of mutual respect."

Allman Brothers Band drummer Butch Trucks is reached in New York City's Central Park, where he's watching bandmate Marc Quinones play a softball game.

"Aww, Marc!" Trucks cries at one point. "He just dropped one he should have caught."

It's about the only blemish on a perfect summer day, Trucks goes on to say. He's home, the band is starting another leg of its constant touring schedule, and life has never been better.

"I feel blessed," he says. "I'm a very lucky guy to be able to do this. I'm 55, and I make a very, very good living, and have a very good life, playing music."

Allman's Bluesy Show is a Summer Highlight
 
Posted on Monday, August 12, 2002 - 08:13 AM
By: Steve Morse
Boston Globe

MANSFIELD - A fan sitting next to me couldn't contain himself. ''It's not a summer without the Allman Brothers!'' he shouted. And he was right. The band and its devotees have become as much a summer fixture as Jimmy Buffett's Parrotheads or Ozzy Osbourne's hordes. The Allmans have gone through significant changes in recent years - notably the firing of guitarist Dickey Betts and the hiring of guitar partners Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes - but they continue to put on one of the must-see shows of the summer.

Saturday's concert for 16,500 fans was a tasteful dip into the bluesy side of the band. Songs such as ''Come and Go Blues'' (from the group's legendary ''Brothers and Sisters'' album), ''Woman Across the River'' (a Freddie King tune destined to be on the next Allmans CD), and ''Worried Down With the Blues'' (written by Haynes for his other group, Gov't Mule, though the recording featured four of the Allmans) set the night's heartfelt survivors' tone.

AllBros at Warfield, S.F., June 10 & 12
 
Posted on Thursday, August 01, 2002 - 09:24 PM
Like most ABB fans, I started following the band at a young age (13 yrs.) when my sister's older boyfriends introduced me to "Idlewild South". I was immediatedly enthralled with what was an unfamiliar sound because it touched some level within me I had never felt from music before.

Flash forward to the Warfield Theater, circa June 10 & 12, 2002.

Even though saddened by the departure of Dickey Betts, I was excited to hear what the current line up would sound like. I went on opening night with one group of friends and on the closing night with another group of friends. We were all blown away.

I would describe the brothers as " a muscular wave of sound and precision" that left you drained and wanting more. I was particularly excited that new material was brought forth because not only did it kick-a**, but it shows the brothers are not resting on their considerable laurels, but are pushing ahead.

This current line up, I dare say with all humility, is the closest in spirit to the original line up. No one can deny Dickey's contribution to this legendary band, but they are grittier, with an edge and purpose that has been missing since Duane.

The current ABB line up is tremendous. These guys are the ones to take it to the next level.

Allman Brothers Band from the Target Center to Blossom Music
 
Posted on Thursday, August 01, 2002 - 09:23 PM
Dear Family,

This is the tale of my adventure from the Target Center in Minneapolis to Cuyahoga Falls in Ohio.
A new yearly ritual I started with my brother Jeremiah ( Jay ) last year . It's our healing and growing time together. He is a guitarist , been playing since he was 10 yrs old and I am a singer since I was 8 yrs old. Being on the road is the greatest inspriration anyone musician can get and give to one another. Our gift of dance is one of the greatest complements we could give, one art to another without actually being able to sing or play. Dance is the spirit set free and each musical note that is played allows the joy , the energy , the love to flow through the strings of the heart and illuminates the essence back in an artful expression . To everyone in the Allman Brothers Band and everyone in Phil and Friends thank you once again for the visit home. That is exactly how we felt, from our souls we miss you all. Wish we could have rode longer but we both became very ill. All good things in all good time.

The day begins with our drive to each show. Everyday on the way to each show we would see either an eagle or a hawk flying above the road we pass on. Legend has it that this is a very good sign.

For the 11yrs I've been seeing the Allman Brothers Band this by far was a beautifully bloomed tour. There are aspects that have changed without Dicky but sound levels are healthy for the ears and the energy of the music from the love generated from one to another on stage is still well served. By far it is real essence of love. Most of all it was so wonderful to here Gregg singing he sounds beautiful and healthy, there was no drowing out with guitars. The change off from Derek to Warren was something I am glad I didn't miss. There seems to be more admiration and respect for eachother in whole on stage. Warren has always been at home and so it seems natural to be back with the family. Lots of loving creative energy that radiated from the stage night after night.

Every show seemed to hold magic and magical moments. Minnesota it had to be the Midnight Rider -Instrumental - Whipping Post Encore Revival. Milwaukee it had to be Trouble No More -Midnight Train-Black Hearted Woman-The Same Thing ( with Danny Lewis) Southbound ( with Jimmy and Rob) -Mountian Jam -Encore One Way Out. Deer Creek it was when Warren broke into Otis Redding - I've been Loving You To Long. Phil set was mind blowing, with Terrapin in super Jazz mode Not Fade Away the complete Otherone. Michagan the"Garden State" was a beautiful drive. Pine Knob it was when Larry McRae joined Warren for- Soulshine with the Come and Go Blues right before and Mountian Jam Encore One Way Out . Ohio's Cuyhugoa Falls- Bloosom Music Center what a treat to see Derek and Susan together on stage opening. What admiration and support for eachother's talents. That's a very inspiring connection to have when in love with musicians they are very lucky. Warren has won my heart completely. I hope he's taking care. I would love to be at all the shows dancing the night away. Blossom favorites were Woman Across the River - Old Before My Time - Dreams- Hoochie Coochie Man -End Of The Line - Soulshine - Insturmental- Southbound (with Jimmy and Rob) Encore - Revival.

Our plan was to be at Riverbend and to go to Nashville for the 4th but we both became very ill and needed to take care. Didn't need anyone else getting sick. We think it was mold in one of our hotel rooms, we didn't notice it til the morning after the Blossom show. Hope everyone enjoyed the Roses I gave to Warren. He is incredible and deserves the best loving from friends on the road . The person whom stated him Ironman Staus is right on with Govt Mule opening so many of the shows triple performances for Warren makes him one hard worked man. I would have stated more detail of the performances but there is just so,so much.

Next years Summer Tour we're already planning on taking two weeks to be on the road. Aug 1st we'll be in St. Louis for Phil & Friends and then the Terrapin Reunion weekend at Alpine Valley. I would love to be traveling East Coast bound for more ABB shows in Aug. Later in the fall seems to be a better prospect hope to see everyone soon . All our light , love and energy is still shining your way may it keep on growing. Miss you all , take care.

Phil Lesh & Willie Nelson Lite Up Camden New Jersery’s Tweeter Center In 2001
 
Posted on Thursday, August 01, 2002 - 09:20 PM
By ANDREW McCOLLUM BRASFIELD
Warren Haynes shined brightly with Phil Lesh & Friends and Willie Nelson & Family, with Hot Tuna opening up, on Saturday, July 28, 2001, at the Tweeter Center on the Waterfront, in Camden, New Jersey.
Phil Lesh sat in with Hot Tuna on "I Know You Rider," the last song of their set, causing the audience to show how vocal and enthusiastic they would be for the headliners.
Willie Nelson opened his set with "Whiskey River," which he revisited about 20 songs later, followed by "Good Hearted Woman."
Jackie King, Nelson’s electric guitarist in his touring band for the last 3 years, was 13-years-old when he first played with Willie in Texas. The two simply gathered at a mutual friends house and played, accoding to King.
Other songs that made the audience roar where: "Me And Bobby McGee;" "Georgia On My Mind;" and "Mama Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys." Lesh sat in on the tune "Milk Cow Blues."
"He has wrote some great words, he is a great writer," King said. He considers themselves "very close friends, we have a great respect for each aother as artists."
King grew up playing jazz, listening to artists such as Hank Garin and Wes Montgomery. He now plays Heritage Guitars.
King cowrote the song "Great Divide" with Willie, which is be the title cut on Nelson’s new album, available in certain stores and on the internet.
Phil Lesh and Warren Haynes and company opened their first set with a 10 minute jam, then moved into the Gratefull Dead’s "Wheel."
But the crowd lost their sanity when the band played with Haynes singing Jimi Hendrix’s "All Along The Watchtower."
Haynes sang and played the song with full force - and a solid spirit.
A Dark Star riff was next for five minutes, with Willie coming back on for the songs "Oh Atlanta" and "Going Down The Road Feelin’ Bad."
The second set started on a blue, or somber tone, with a 10 minute jam and the friends moving into Traffic's "Mr. Fantasty," with Haynes again on lead vocals and singing 'up.'
After another song, Lesh and the band started off into "Dark Star," a rare tune by the Dead sung by the late Jerry Garcia. And again, for a third time, after another Lesh song plus "So Many Roads," the friends revisited da Star.
Haynes guitar work resembled that of the past Dead leader.
It is fair to say that the audience, some wearing tie-dye t-shirts, was in awe of the Dead triple tribute.
But the band burned off the blue mood, causing many people who were in their seats and nearly asleep, to jump up and dance when they broke into "Shakedown Street." Again, Haynes was on lead vocals and sounded strong.

Warren Haynes Deserves Ironman Status
 
Posted on Monday, July 08, 2002 - 03:05 PM

By David Lindquist, Staff Writer
Indy Star

Warren Haynes deserves ironman status for his efforts Saturday at Verizon Wireless Music Center, where he spent six hours in the spotlight. He spread his guitar work and singing across three acts -- headliner Phil Lesh & Friends, middle act Allman Brothers Band and opener Gov't Mule.

Gov't. Mule, the hardest-rocking outfit on the jam/improv spectrum, is the band Haynes leads. A muscular tone defined "Bad Little Doggie" and "Thorazine Shuffle," songs in which Haynes located grooves and drained their entire goodness.

While he's not a revolutionary player, Haynes is a master of piercing riffs and breakneck velocity. This utility explains his second tour of duty with the Allmans.

Even as he delivered solo after solo in this stretch, Haynes actually served as complementary foil to Gen Y genius Derek Trucks.

Allman Brothers Band Have Perfected the Art of the Jam
 
Posted on Wednesday, July 03, 2002 - 08:12 AM
Rick Bird
Cincinnati Post

When the Allman Brothers play what has become their annual summer ritual at Riverbend on Wednesday, they are continuing a tri-state tradition that goes back over 30 years. The legendary band first played here at the area's famous hippie rock palace, the Ludlow Garage in Clifton. They were almost the house band for a year at the Garage, then run by Jim Tarbell, now a Cincinnati City Council member (Uno's Pizza on Ludlow now occupies the building that housed the Ludlow Garage).

It was a time when the Allmans were honing their sound into what would become the quintessential American rock band — mixing jazz, blues and rock, anchored by the guitar work of Duane Allman, who would die in a motorcycle crash in 1971. The band's sets at the Ludlow Garage were immortalized in 1991 when the Allman Brothers released a vintage recording from its vaults, "Live at the Ludlow" taken from a concert there in 1970.

When asked about the Ludlow Garage days, Greg Allman, now 54, immediately flashes on an odd memory — the furniture.

ABB Renew Their Legacy as a Formidable Jam Band
 
Posted on Saturday, June 22, 2002 - 11:22 AM
By Gregg Kot
Chicago Tribune

The late legendary guitarist Duane Allman had a simple answer for those who asked why the Allman Brothers required two drummers: He wanted to feel the "freight train" behind him.

Duane Allman died nearly 31 years ago, but the train rolls on, and it roared through the Chicago Theatre for the first of three concerts Wednesday. (Tickets remain for Saturday's final show.) Butch Trucks and Jaimoe, a.k.a. Jai Johanny Johanson, have been shoveling coal in the Allman Brothers' engine room since the '60s, and they played with a seen-it-all swagger and drive, daring the relative newcomers on the front line to keep up with them or get out of the way.

Allmans Find Renewed Joy in Their Music
 
Posted on Friday, June 21, 2002 - 11:18 AM


By Jeff Johnson, Staff Writer
Chicago Sun Times

"The road goes on forever," Allman Brothers vocalist-keyboardist Gregg Allman sang during "Midnight Rider," the band's opening number Wednesday night at the Chicago Theatre.

A few years ago, that lament might have summed up the attitude of Allman and the whole band, as well as countless other groups whose commercial zeniths came 30 years ago and who stay together just to make a buck. Then the Allmans played their last silver dollar and dumped the popular but disruptive Dickey Betts.

The early returns were decidedly mixed for the new seven-piece lineup that incorporated former vocalist-guitarist Warren Haynes from Gov't Mule and whiz-kid guitarist Derek Trucks, the nephew of Butch Trucks, one of the group's three (count 'em--three) drummers. When the Allmans came through last August, Haynes was struggling to hold down his share of the vocal duties and Derek Trucks was being treated as a junior member, both in terms of solo time and in the sound mix.

Allman Brothers Band is Back and Energized
 
Posted on Friday, June 14, 2002 - 11:59 AM
Greg Kot
Chicago Tribune rock critic
Published June 14, 2002

Though less than two years ago it wouldn't have seemed possible, a retooled and re-energized Allman Brothers will take over the Chicago Theatre for three shows Wednesday, Thursday and June 22.

In June 2000, Dickey Betts' sudden, acrimonious departure had left the Allmans in disarray. Two months later, Govt. Mule was devastated by the death of bassist Allen Woody from a heroin overdose. The man caught in the middle of both crises was guitarist Warren Haynes.

"When Woody died, I just pulled the plug on everything, it freaked me out so much," Haynes recalls. "I felt as though no one had felt that kind of pain before. Then I started getting phone calls and letters from people who have been through the same thing, like Blues Traveler, Dave Grohl, the Grateful Dead, and they reminded me how important it was to go on, to use the music to help get through the pain. It's strange and amazing that something so good has come out of something as tragic as that."

Music Industry Raises Its Voice for Radio Reforms
 
Posted on Thursday, May 23, 2002 - 12:44 PM
By Greg Kot
Chicago Tribune

Charging that the radio industry has become a monopoly that restricts airplay of new music and harms artists financially, an unprecedented coalition of musicians, recording artists, labor groups, retailers and record companies has joined with politicians to call for sweeping changes in an industry they call "anti-artist, anti-competition and anti-consumer."

The group also is calling for reform of so-called legal payola. The widespread practice involves record companies funneling promotional money--estimated as high as $300 million a year by one record company executive--to radio stations through independent promoters in exchange for airplay consideration.

The campaign, which will include legislation promised by Sen. Russell Feingold (D-Wis.), will begin Friday with the release of a joint statement signed by 10 of the major organizations representing the musicians and industry that seek major changes in how music reaches listeners over the radio, the Tribune has learned.

ABB are Florida Rock & Roll Legends
 
Posted on Monday, April 22, 2002 - 12:02 PM

What do The Allman Brothers Band, 'N Sync, Limp Bizkit, Creed, and Gloria Estefan have in common? They all call the Sunshine State home, have roots in Florida and are just some of the musical artists topping the charts internationally who will be featured in Follow That Dream: Florida's Rock & Roll Legends that runs through April 28 at the Orange County Regional History Center in downtown Orlando.

From the bands and performers who made history here - Elvis filming Follow that Dream in Central Florida in the early 60s; to the ones who got their start here - the Allman Brothers Band in Jacksonville, the Backstreet Boys in Orlando; to those native Floridians who grew up here - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in Gainesville - Florida's Rock & Roll Legends chronicles rock & roll history since the early 1950s.

Dangerous Mules
 
Posted on Sunday, April 21, 2002 - 12:00 AM
April 19, 2002: Gov't Mule (with Alvin Youngblood Hart) at the Riviera Theatre, Chicago, IL.
Marley Seaman

Traffic was slow, but Brofan still got us to the Riv in plenty of time to see Alvin Youngblood Hart's set. Alvin is an interesting performer: he played a fairly brief solo electric set that mixed elements of the classic blues- the Chicago, electric post-blues variety- with his a very original flair. He's keeping a tradition alive, but he's no copycat. When he was done, he grabbed two of his guitars (he used a different one for almost every song) and left. And with surprisingly little flair -- I don't think the lights even went back down -- Gov't Mule came out.

Allman Brothers Band, Troy State U, Jan 1971
 
Posted on Tuesday, April 02, 2002 - 09:48 AM
I went to an Allman Brothers Band concert which occurred as a last minute affair at Troy State University in Alabama in Jan 1971. I believe the date was January 10th, but am not completely sure.

As I recall, the ABB's truck broke down and the band decided to have a show right then, right there. Tickets were printed up in a hurry. They were red with simple printing. The show was held in a small gym with the band on a slightly elevated platform in the middle. We all sat on the floor and had a great time. This concert is never listed in any listing of performances!

Berry Oakley's Tractor Bass Gets Cloned
 
Posted on Tuesday, February 26, 2002 - 08:14 PM

By Diane Gershuny
Originally published on Fender's BassStreet.com

Berry Oakley's "Tractor Bass" will forever be immortalized in the annals of bass lore, and on classic recordings like the Allman Brothers' Live at the Fillmore East. This hybrid instrument, cobbled together by Oakley and roadie, Joe Dan Petty, was a modified Jazz Bass with the neck pickup moved back and a Guild Starfire pickup put in its place. Many a story circulated about how the band tolerated the "Frankenstein" instrument-which looked more like a farm implement than a musical instrument-but none could deny the amazing sound it produced in Berry's hands.

ABB Album not listed in Discography
 
Posted on Saturday, February 09, 2002 - 06:22 AM
I was looking for deals on ABB music at half.com and came across an album titled Still Rockin'. The info claims that the cd is from November 2000. I've never heard of it and was wondering if anyone had any info about this album. Is it a live recording? I don't recognize some of the song titles so I thought it might be worthwhile to add to my collection. Any information would be helpful. Thanks.

Note: Still Rockin' is another repackaging of songs from the two Arista releases from the early 80's, Brothers of the Road and Reach For The Sky. It is similar but not identical in content to Hell & High Water. It does not contain all the songs from the two Arista albums, it is a subset. While the ABB themselves don't speak highly of these two recordings, there are some good cuts -- listen to Radio HTW and you will hear them from time to time.

Allman Brothers' Tapes Suit Ramblin' Through Courts
 
Posted on Monday, January 28, 2002 - 07:57 PM

LOS ANGELES(Reuters) -
A legal battle over 30-year-old Allman Brothers recordings is rambling through the courts due to "procedural stalling" by Universal Music Group, the band's lawyer said Monday, pledging to appeal a bid to shift the case to federal court.

The popular 1970s rock band, known for such hits as "Ramblin' Man" and "Midnight Rider", first filed suit against recording giant Universal, a unit of Vivendi Universal , in May claiming the label wrongly took possession of several live tracks and other recordings made between 1969 and 1980.

Ready? Set. Peak!
 
Posted on Monday, January 14, 2002 - 08:36 AM
The Allman Brothers Band will have you Peakin' at the Beacon March 14, 15, 16, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23 and 24 this year. These shows always sell out quickly but you may still be able to score a tix via TM . Need some quick travel tips? You got it --fly into LaGuardia, take a licensed taxi to 75th & Broadway (about $25), and stay at the Beacon Hotel . The Beacon Hotel also sells out, so make your reservations early. Once you're there, there are a lot of restaurants close by but a thrifty alternative is picking up deli items at the Fairway across the street. The Fairway's also a wonderful place to score picnic supplies for an afternoon spent in Central Park and Strawberry Fields -- a pleasant 15 minute walk from the Beacon.

For help making your Beacon (or any concert) travel plans contact Joy or Dennis, the fine folks at Hill & Dale Travel. Hill & Dale has been the ABB's travel agent for years and now they can be yours too. Feel free to give them a call - as long as you don't ask where the band is staying (!) - at: 718-793-2300
These travel tips have been brought to you by ... us! ;-)

Allman Brothers Band's Beacon Legacy Continues
 
Posted on Sunday, January 13, 2002 - 08:48 PM

According to Pollstar it's a new year and that means it's time for The Allman Brothers Band to take up residence at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. The band kick off their touring season with an eight-show run March 14 -23, with ticket prices remaining the same as 2001's: $45.99 to $65.99.

Last year's nine nights grossed more than $1.5 million and was, needless to say, completely sold out. Their 2000 stint was an impressive 13-night run, grossing almost $2.3 million. The tradition began in 1994 and became an annual event in ‘96. The blues-rock icons have played as many as 18 consecutive gigs at the theatre.

Allman Brothers Band set dates for annual Beacon Theatre run

by Rob Evans
LiveDaily News Editor
JAN 10, 2:31 P.M. ET
Allman Brothers Band will open its new touring year as it for the last 10 years: with an extended run of dates at New York's Beacon Theatre.

The Southern rockers are scheduled to perform at the venue on March 14-16, 18, 19, 21-23 and 27, according to promoters. Tickets for all shows will hit the market at 10 a.m. on Friday.

In 2001, the band's nine-show run at the Beacon grossed more than $1.6 million, according to Amusement Business. In 2000, the band released the live album "Peakin' at the Beacon" (Sony/550), which was culled from that year's run at the venue.

The band's current lineup is Gregg Allman (vocals, keyboards), Butch Trucks (percussion), Derek Trucks (guitar), Marc Quinones (percussion), Oteil Burbridge (bass), Jaimoe (percussion) and Warren Haynes (guitar). (Haynes is scheduled to tour with his band Gov't Mule from February through early March.)

A new Allman Brothers Band studio album is expected to hit stores sometime this year.

Still absent from the band is founding guitarist Dickey Betts, who hasn't toured with the Allmans since May 2000.

The Road Goes on Forever - An Essential Collection

PopMatters Music Critic

"The vision was anti-industrial, anti-mechanical. It was mystical, just out of reach: a private self-revelation. It was the myth of the South, recast for a new generation". — John Swenson on "Dreams"

When The Allman Brothers Band appeared in 1969, it featured one of the most provocative cover photographs of its time: an integrated group of Southern hipsters congregated on the massive, paint-peeled porch of a dilapidated antebellum mansion. The back cover photo was even more shocking: the same ragamuffins huddled in front of a niche, their bassist Berry Oakley dressed as Jesus elevated behind them, arms protectively outstretched like the ever-watchful Good Shepherd

Music Review by Dean Johnson

Boston Herald

Saturday, June 23, 2001

The night began with ``Whipping Post.''

The Allman Brothers Band opened its extravagant 160-minute concert
at the Tweeter Center last night with its tour-de-force song. That's
the musical equivalent of tossing a hand grenade onto a fireworks
barge, and that's just about the way the show played out for the
near-capacity crowd.

Lesh and Friends and the Allman Brothers Band - performing last Sunday
at Hi-Fi Buys Amphitheatre, which you may recall was still called
Lakewood Amphitheatre last time the Brothers played there in Atlanta in
1999.

Hmmm ... Hi-Fi Buys Amphitheatre. Sounds much more inviting than
Lakewood, doesn't it? Kinda makes ya want to go out and by a car stereo
or DVD player, right?

The Allman Brothers Band is working on its first studio album in over seven years and hopes to release it next spring, drummer Butch Trucks tells Billboard.com.

Songs such as "Desdamona," "High Cost of Low Living," and "Rocking Horse" have already become concert staples and are set to be included on the new set. The latter track was written during sessions for the 1994 album "Where It All Begins" and later recorded by Gov't Mule.

Allman Brothers' New Guy Steps Up

Concert review


By Chris Varias

Cincinnati Enquirer contributor
The old, new guy made his presence felt.

Warren Haynes, the Allman Brothers guitarist who left in
1997, is back, replacing Jimmy Herring, who in turn replaced
original guitarist Dickey Betts, whom the band sacked.

During the Allmans' Wednesday-night show at Riverbend,
Mr. Haynes wasn't shy about returning. If the star of the show
wasn't head brother Gregg Allman, it was Mr. Haynes, who
handled lead vocals several times throughout the night, and
whose muscular solos served as climaxes to many of the
songs.

Allman Brothers Band Works Its Psychedelic Blues Magic

About 4,000 to 5,000 hardy classic-rock lovers braved a downpour last
night to hear the Allman Brothers Band work its psychedelic blues magic
at Blossom Music Center.

Thirty-two years after its formation, the ABB contains three original
members: vocalist/keyboard player Gregg Allman and drummers Butch
Trucks and Jaimoe Johanson. Guitarists Derek Trucks and Warren
Haynes, bassist Oteil Burbridge and percussionist Mark Quinones are
more recent additions. Yet the band has stayed true to the sound that
made it famous: swamp blues boiled in a vat of rock 'n' roll.

Allman Brothers Bluesy Sounds Great on the Ears

By John Young

Sure, you can call the Allman Brothers Band a Southern rock band. The group
originated in the South. The group rocks.

But the Allman Brothers Band, particularly the 2001 configuration that played
Post-Gazette Pavilion last night, belongs in another category. This is a blues
band. And they don't play the stiff, whitewashed stuff of the commercial
airwaves, either, preferring searing, gut-bucket, greasy, down home, tail-kickin'
blues.

Apparently the education in "The Education of Max Bickford" includes music appreciation. The CBS show played Little Martha in its entirety at the close of their 9/30/01 episode.
