JohnS516 - 2/13/2018 at 07:21 PM

July 15 is actually The Great South Bay Music Festival in Patchogue on Long Island. Gov Mule and one of the best ABB Tribute bands around The Allmost Brothers played there last year.


musicmann - 2/13/2018 at 08:09 PM

I am planning for July 20 in CT


Fretsman - 2/13/2018 at 08:32 PM

Niiice.


JimSheridan - 2/14/2018 at 04:13 AM

Jeez of course DIckey hits CT while I'm on vacay! Lol

jszfunk - 2/14/2018 at 11:32 AM

I wonder if he is going to keep it just to the East coast and South.


JimSheridan - 2/14/2018 at 03:10 PM

Dickey is at Peachfest in PA on the Sunday of that weekend, but this sched says he has shows that Fri (CT) and Sat (NY), so he will not be around at the Fest to do sit-ins in its opening days.

I hope Warren, Jaimoe, Devon, and Duane do sit in with HIM in that Sunday set!!


redhouse1969 - 2/14/2018 at 05:14 PM

having just relocated to the ATL area... Dickey in Macon in May sounds just fine to me... BWIAB!


Jack_Frost - 2/14/2018 at 05:51 PM

I don't know if Dickey or David Spero ever peek in here or not, but in case they do, I just want to say: Thanks for doing this, Dickey. You're making a lot of folks happy


redhouse1969 - 2/16/2018 at 06:18 PM

Any news on the venue for the Macon Show? Big House?

...inside sources tell me Macon City Auditiorium with Devon Allman Project featuring Duane opening. Fingers-crossed...apparently I've now reached an age that concert announcements no longer excite; this is the ultimate exception. One more night w/ Brother Dickey...

Has anyone heard about who will be in Dickey's Band?

Thanks


revonah - 2/19/2018 at 11:46 PM

I'm cautiously waiting for the band members to be announced. I have no idea. I think the promoter who
booked the gig in Macon is taking a leap of faith that these two bands can fill the Macon City Auditorium. I just don't see it.
Dickey said it himself...he was playing bars previously and thought he could fill larger venues, but could not.

*My apologizes. I thought Dickey was booked for the Macon City Colisium

I'd love to see a sellout. If not, then everybody who wants to go will be able to get a ticket. He sold out the Capitol a few years ago. The City Auditorium is the best choice.

Lee, how about Dickey's Band, Jaimoe's Jasssz Band and Devon w/Duane at the Cadillac Palace, right downtown right around 2,500 seats???.............Peace..........joe


Lee - 2/23/2018 at 01:57 AM

Heck I would take anything in the city although I love that lineup.

Kind of doubt adding the other two would add to the drawing power to book them. I would think someplace like S.P.A.C.E. in Evanston would be more likely but I sure hope not. He could also probably fill a place like Joe's. Lincoln Hall is another good possibility. Old Town School of Folk Music books a lot of bands. Warren played there two years ago. Not sure he could fill City Winery but maybe.

Lots of options.


Fishhead - 2/24/2018 at 06:18 PM

I bought tickets for Macon. Saw ABB at the Macon City Auditorium the day the Big House opened and could not see much from rear floor seats so I'm trying the balcony.
Sales look pretty good based on what is still available on Ticket Master.

Tickets will be on the ground. I'm nowhere near Georgia or Macon, otherwise I would consider going.


porkchopbob - 2/27/2018 at 08:05 PM

Just announced that Damon Fowler has joined Dickey's band. Fowler has been playing all over the south east and was a full-time member of Freight Train Band. No slight to Aledort, but Fowler is a monster slide player, might be the best guitarist Dickey has had outside of the Allmans.


funkyfitter - 2/27/2018 at 08:47 PM

I'll probably be heading to the St. George theater show in Staten Island.
There's no mention of it on their website yet though.

Damon is a very good guitar player. He did several gigs with FTB. Thought I'd be seeing him with Butch when he played here in town, but Butch had Ben Sparaco & Heather Gillis playing guitars for that show and several others.

Not sure if yall have heard but BO Jr. is hosting 'BO's Jive-Ass Revue' at Grant's Lounge during and AFTER Jaimoe's after-party set at the old Cox Capitol Theatre. BO Jr's show will feature Johnny Neel and I would imagine a slew of sit-ins and goes until 4 a.m., LOL. This likely final celebration of ABB is certainly going to test my meddle/stamina, lol. Prolly resort to some questionable activities, haha...hope I make it out of Macon alive.

I'll take 2 for $89 as close as I can get. It's a great/fair price. Many artists with way lesser of a resume and song history are getting much more. NY prices also tend to be higher, I will always remember the show (it's what I live for), but will not remember the few hours of work that allowed my ass to be in that chair!

It was meet and greet that was $300 and then of course they have the plats currently priced at $260ish. Frankly even the $150 is a bit much from my perspective.

Living in AZ... this is out of the question, seems like a high ticket price to me. "Marshall Tucker"?...Is that Doug Gray and no one else from the original band?

Might be time to move on. May I add that if Dickey were to be playing songs from Highway Call, Pattern Disruptive and the first GS record, I would go in a heartbeat. No desire to hear Southbound, Ramblin' Man & Blue Sky for the millionth time.

Just my .02 ...I wish all involved with this endeavor, nothing but the best.


revonah - 4/5/2018 at 08:23 PM

I'm with BigV. This is Great Southern, a band I was never overly impressed with, playing those tunes the same
way as before. Dickey doesn't deviate too much from his standard set-list. And yes, they'll now be playing some
Gregg tunes....It's a stretch for Mike Kach to take on vocal duties on the new Gregg songs. He's not bad, and
nobody is Gregg....I'm rationalizing why I wouldn't pay $150 Marshall Tucker is ....not nearly as good as the
Outlaws. Doug Grey's voice is weak....MTB is just a filler for adding an attraction to sell a few Tix. Devon and Duane
will be fantastic. And remember, it's the promoter charging these prices and selecting the acts....not the band.
I too hope it is a sell out crowd and folks have a great time.

I don't get Marshall Tucker as part of this bill. This is NOT the MTB many of us remember, not even close. Yes, Doug Gray is there but he is the only one and he had serious voice problems and really, can't sing. So I don't know what they could possibly bring to the table. I expect Devon to play with Dickey (I am surmising), and his band with Duane Betts will be fun.

I don't think Dickey playing is some sort of new, different dealio for him (i.e. playing from his solo catalogue). I have a feeling this is a test drive, this run of shows--for himself (can he still do it?) and to see what kind of response he gets. So yeah, I'd expect he'll stick to basics to start. I saw his "Great American Music show" way back when, and that would be fun to see something similar but I doubt it this time around.

Candidly, I am surprised they even got to the Beacon but it is one show. I hope it sells well and inspires Dickey to do what he does so well....


emr - 4/5/2018 at 09:01 PM

Looks like the show is about 1/2 sold

I took the koolaid for $90 Orchestra Row T

Kinda like the Seinfeld where Elaine decides to get married: "What have I got to lose. Its 2:00AM and I'm at a cockfight"

Might suck; might get cancelled. But I just want to feel even 10Pct of the old March rush through my veins. Better than my other options even if it cost me a few Benjamins


MuleMe - 4/5/2018 at 09:37 PM

Counselor - 4/5/2018 at 10:09 PM

I just shelled out for Orch Row C. Hoping for some of the Ol Beacon Magic. Been 4 years since I was inside the joint, it will feel good to be back. Opportunities to see original members are dwindling. What the hell else I got to do on a Wednesday night? NCIS Toledo? Bring on the music. Fingers still crossed for a 50th Anniversary Something-er-Other next year at the Beacon or Fox or _____.


emr - 4/5/2018 at 10:11 PM

LeglizHemp - 4/5/2018 at 11:03 PM

Got my ticket, cya there.


nebish - 4/5/2018 at 11:42 PM

I'm getting closer, have to figure out some logistics.

I saw MTB several years ago and I felt bad for Doug. He has undergone yet another surgery on his vocal chords since I saw them last, I'm not sure if any improvement has been found there. As someone who loved the 1970s MTB and still do to this day, what I saw in person just made me sad. Chris Hicks on guitar and occasional vocals is worthy of mention, maybe Doug has regained some of his range, but I doubt it.

Still, with the Devon and Duane band and seeing Dickey's band too, it is something I can justify. To me, I welcome Dickey doing alot of ABB material, it is kind of like one last ride with someone that helped write and forge those songs. This is assuming the show actually happens, just based off of history. I will be buying flight insurance probably, something I have never done.

$90 isn't that bad. I've paid more for less. The Beacon is a special place and Dickey is a special musician.


emr - 4/6/2018 at 01:17 AM

TTB has a show on 7/18 but Warren is free. Just saying


nypeachhead - 4/6/2018 at 02:23 PM

Hey folks, long time since I have stopped in here. Hope everyone is well.

I grabbed tix of course . Any Allman Beacon related show gets my blood flowing. Hoping things go really well that night and the house is packed. Next day is Peachfest so its a great way to start 5 days of music!

Look forward to seeing some of the fine extended family once again in NYC and the Church that is the Beacon theatre to listen to the man in the hat once again!

The $150 tickets run to $195 with TM fees. That's just too much for me for this show. I am sure the scalpers gobbled up a lot of the tickets, but in general, the show seems to have sold pretty well.

Dickey is doing this as a gift to the people.He damn sho don't need the money.Add to that the man has been retired for 3 years,had health issue's,some very serious.And this ain't the place to beat my gum's about what.I will say the man is damn near 75,and like us all who have some age on our hide,is not the player he once was.I read this crap about he's just got a garage/bar band behind him.Man that is some rude,off the wall crap to be spewing here.Betts loves the cats in his band ,and they are damn good players and friends as well to him.So if your expecting the man to have the fire under him as some have said,and put on a show to the like's of the 70's,80's etc,well then keep your as* home.However if you wanna come and see a legendary member of the best damn band to ever walk this planet play for the people the last time,then come to Macon the 17'th.Otherwise please STFU with this grade school jive of holding the man under a microscope slide and jaw jacking about what he should and should not do,who he should have in his band,how he should play and what etc etc etc etc.Gimmie a damn break!
Oh and i can't omit the whining of ticket prices etc as well.Nobody is breaking anyone's leg to buy a ticket and go.So once again,ya got issue's etc with the gig,DON'T GO! Oh that's right,ya can't ,it's SOLD OUT!

AMEN Brother Luke! Cant wait... how great is it to see a living legend in the town where it all began...


rayg - 5/9/2018 at 02:31 PM

The 8 shows Dickey is giving us are a gift . No need to analyze or dissect who he should play with or what he should play.
But I do have an idea : How about Dickey's band along with Warren and Matt from the original Dickey Betts Band play some of the cuts off Pattern Disruptive at Peachfest ? Loverman, Duane's Tune , Rock Bottom and The Blues Ain't Nothin'.
It's a going to be a fun summer with Dickey playing for us again.


LUKE - 5/11/2018 at 03:08 AM

Dickey is cleaned up now,and has been for quite some time.Fact still remain's the man is damn near 75 yr's old,and has lived a life that woulda put most of us 6 feet under.All the while Gregg was clean,Betts was still runnin full throttle.Add to that he's 5 yr's older than Gregg.
Dickey is gonna have to pace himself on this one last ride for the people.And that is exactly what it is! Him & Jaimoe are it,period.To want or think the man is gonna pull out stellar all stars and perform a variety of songs he hasn't played in damn near 30 yr's is asking too much.
The man has chosen to do this not cause he is on the verge of bankruptcy etc.He is doing it cause he knows the years are goin by fast ,and him and Jaimoe are the last of the tribe/original brotherhood.I know one thing,my as* will be there.And whatever,however, he chooses to play, is cool as a cooling board with me.And i damn sho don't expect him to put on a 3 hr show.On the other hand,ya never know with Forest.

Luke--Is this it for Dickey? A one off group of shows, and then he goes back to retirement?


Jonesy - 5/11/2018 at 05:33 PM

....although he is booked for The Southern Rock Cruise in Jan 2019. What's the scoop?


hotlantatim - 5/11/2018 at 06:08 PM

His manager or his FB page manager basically said "Get tickets for these specific shows....it is goong to be a limited outing." I would not expect anything beyond what is announced and if there is more I'll consider it a bonus.


fast43 - 5/12/2018 at 12:37 PM

Less than 3 weeks til the Beacon show! Is there any intel on order of performance and about what time Dickey is likely to come on?

I've seen the Youtube vids of the Sarasota and Macon shows and my expectations for 7/18 are adjusted accordingly. Any word on whether Dickey and the band have been woodshedding since Macon?

July 15 is actually The Great South Bay Music Festival in Patchogue on Long Island. Gov Mule and one of the best ABB Tribute bands around The Allmost Brothers played there last year.


When it comes to Brothers tribute bands, these guys out of Knoxville are badass.

Well I know, once he gets started, can't stop that train! He likes to do it till he's done and it is usually more than a 2 hr. show. Why should he limit his joy? He loves playin' music.

DICKEY BETTS TO FILM LIVE CONCERT DVD AT ST. GEORGE THEATRE ON JULY 21ST

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Allman Brothers Band founding member Dickey Betts has announced that his concert next Saturday, July 21st at the historic St. George Theatre will now be filmed for an upcoming live DVD release. This significant event will be The Dickey Betts Band's only NYC metro area solo headlining concert, therefore it will give Dickey a chance to stretch out and play a longer show.

Tickets range from $59-$89 and are available at the box office 718-442-2900 or on Ticketmaster. Click here for tickets

Be a part of history! The Beacon Theatre show on July 16th is sold out, so don't miss your last chance to see the legendary Dickey Betts and his band in New York this year!


Stephen - 7/12/2018 at 10:29 PM

Great to see the Beacon is sold out!! Yes guessing tight, focused clear-sounding music on this tour -- fantastic that the St. George Theatre show is being filmed -- thanks Dickey for your music bro

DOVETAIL - 7/13/2018 at 01:02 AM

Any chance for RELIABLE reviews of shows subsequent to the arguable debacles of Macon & Sarasota previously belabored here no end (nd not so artfully dodged by AP @jambands.com?)?....Just for those of us interested in musical performance as opposed to idol worship?!


sealevel - 7/13/2018 at 03:11 PM

Big Dickey fan here.I will be attending the show Sunday at great South Bay music festival.Im looking foreword to it.I will post my review either way.I have no doubt it will great.


Stephen - 7/13/2018 at 03:13 PM

The Fla. and Macon gigs were rehearsals/shows & advertised as such -- the guys know these songs w/a heartful of love & will be as stoked to play them as us fans will be to hear them -- esp at the sold-out Beacon

You can't be a Dickey Betts fan and not be interested in musical performance -- I take the 'idol worship', to be Gratitude, from appreciative fans -- for music we've loved forever, and for hitting it one more time beginning next week


slothrop8 - 7/14/2018 at 01:58 PM

The plans to film a DVD and the fact more dates have been added would both on the surface seem to be good news. I can't imagine they would make plans to film a DVD unless Dickey was seeing his playing come together quite a bit when practicing/rehearsing over the last few months. There's no way they'd willingly professionally document what the videos of the earlier gigs this year showed - the fact that they are making such plans seems encouraging. Interested to see the videos and read the reviews of the upcoming shows - would love to see Dickey have a really nice run this summer.


mikesolo - 7/14/2018 at 07:48 PM

I don’t see any conflicting Mule dates, so will Warren show up at The Beacon for some fun?

Hmmm, Warren appears to have a week off after tonight. He has a home in NYC still?
