Perhaps if the current brain trust starts NOW, the team can have something prepared in time for that milestone, right!?!?!....RIGHT!

I figured this was a tribute show possibly with the Allman Betts Band as house band and as many ABB alumni there as would participate - Jaimoe, Oteil, Marc, Warren, Jack seem to say yes to most everything. Chuck does if he has ample notice and clear schedule (think the Gregg 2014 Tribute and 2017 Peachfest). Dickey's health/ability is questionable but he could be part of it. Derek avoids anything other than unscheduled sit-ins with his former mates since the ABB disbanded.

Then someone posted on Alan Paul's FB page that they suspected this was one of the Blackbird Presents shows organized by Don Was & Keith Workman. And after reading that, I'm going with that prediction, too.

You can't argue with the quality of those Blackbird Presents shows....from the Gregg tribute to Mavis Staples to Skynyrd to Dr John.... the Last Waltz mini-tours. They's all been great.

The 2017 Saturday Peachfest set served very much the same purpose. Chuck was musical director. Chuck was on stage for all (almost all?) of the 2 hour set along with Warren, Jaimoe, Marc, Jack & Oteil for parts of it. All 6 were stage together which I never thought I'd see.

Devon, Duane Betts, Duane Trucks, Berry D Oakley, Vaylor, Lamar Jr all played, along with Gregg & Butch bandmates Pat Bergerson, Bruce Katz, Scott Sherrard, Peter Levin, Junior Mac....some others I'm probably forgetting.

The next day, most of them played again sans Chuck in the Les Bres set. It was an amazing 4 hours of music and would be hard to top! But if they do a Blackbird ABB tribute show, I'd go if at all possible!

That's kind of what I'm predicting. And if that's the case, I'm less curious about what former-ABB members are a part of it than I am what other artists take part and pay tribute.

I was inclined to agree it should be the folks associated with the Allman Brothers but after seeing the Nashville Last Waltz show, I am inclined to go with the folks that Blackbird put together. Guys like Darius Rucker, Vince Gill, Jamey Johnson were performers I would have never paid to have seen live and they were all terrific.

As I was writing this, I just had a flashback back to Bobfest at the Garden which was one of the best shows I ever saw live and the lineup was eclectic.

I just hope I can go to the show as I may not be in the city. But depending on the lineup, this may be one I will have to see no matter what.

Those last couple Last Waltz shows in Nashville weren't bad (besides the sound at Bridgestone), but I'm not buying a plane ticket to NYC to see Duck Dynasty (Jamey and Stapleton as they say in Nashville) do sing-a-longs to The Band or Allman songs, but I will go to see Derek, Jack, and Oteil do something I've never seen before Also, check out Vince with the Time Jumpers at 3rd and Lindsley in Nashville on Mondays, good stuff. Or you can find him throwing golf clubs at the local course....

The Allman Brothers Band to Celebrate 50th Anniversary With Tribute Show
Surviving members of the last Allmans lineup will reunite for an evening of all-Allmans music and jams.
By David Browne

NEW YORK, NY - OCTOBER 28: The Allman Brothers Band performs at The Beacon Theatre on October 28, 2014 in New York City. (Photo by Jemal Countess/Getty Images)

In 2014 — when the Allman Brothers Band decided the time had come to stop touring — the band briefly discussed a show at New York’s Madison Square Garden. In the end, the group opted for a series of farewell performances at another Manhattan venue, the Beacon Theatre, where they had long done residences.

But on March 10, about six years after the band’s goodbye, that dream of a Garden event will become a reality. To pay tribute to the band’s 50th anniversary year, the surviving members of the last Allmans lineup — drummer Jaimoe Johanson, guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, bassist Oteil Burbridge and percussionist Marc Quinones — will reunite for an evening of all-Allmans music and jams.

The lineup will be filled out with drummer Duane Trucks (brother of Derek and nephew of late Allmans founding drummer Butch); and organist Reese Wynans, who played in the pre-Allmans band Second Coming with Dickey Betts and late Allmans bassist Berry Oakley. To further extend the Allmans family vibe, pianist Chuck Leavell — a crucial band member in the Seventies — will also join them for a few numbers.

Technically, the band turned 50 in the spring of 1969, meaning this anniversary show falls roughly within its first year of existence. “It’s a way of honoring 50 years of the band and honoring Duane, Gregg, Berry and Butch and the music they created,” Haynes tells Rolling Stone. “That music deserves a 50th anniversary celebration. Most rock bands never thought they’d even see their 50th anniversary. And, of course, this one didn’t. So in a way, this brings some sort of closure.”

The Allmans camp extended an invitation to Betts, but according to his manager David Spero, Betts (who has had a tempestuous relationship with his former bandmates over the last two decades) “had prior commitments that prevented him from attending.”

Ever since those final 2014 shows, the musicians have moved on to their full-time projects: Haynes with Gov’t Mule (which celebrates its own 25th anniversary this year), Derek Trucks with the Tedeschi-Trucks Band, and Burbridge as the relative newcomer (and new Deadhead fan favorite) in Dead & Co. The Garden show will mark the first time all these musicians have played together since that last Beacon gig — one of several challenges as they prepare for a performance without any Allman brother.

“I think we’re just opened to what it might be,” Haynes says. “Once we started talking about it and once everyone expressed interest in being part of it, and we added Duane, Reese and Chuck, it all started making sense.”

Haynes says they’re still deciding who will handle Allman’s vocals, and they’ve also just begun grappling with paring down the Allmans’ formidable legacy into one evening of music. “There are so many songs that seem necessary for a one-time show, and it’s going to be impossible to play all of them,” he admits. “We’re still in that process. When we would play four nights in one city we could change the set every night to fit in everything.

Haynes last saw Gregg when he and Derek Trucks visited Allman at his Georgia home a few weeks before he succumbed to liver cancer in 2017. By then, Gregg still had a keyboard setup in his house but could barely talk, much less sing. “We did a lot of just sharing stories and keeping it light and talking about good times,” Haynes says with a sigh. “To have a keyboard set up and not be able to sing — for Gregg, that was hell.

“But it was amazing how positive his spirits were,” he adds. “Gregg loved to laugh, and we were telling a lot of fun stories and reminding ourselves of a lot of funny stuff that happened throughout the years. It did us all good to turn that bittersweet moment into thinking about all the wonderful times. It was just, ‘I love you.’”

Asked if he’s come to terms with Butch Trucks’ suicide that same year, Haynes says, “I don’t think so, completely. It’s impossible to wrap my head around it. I had called Butch about joining Gov’t Mule at the Beacon and he had a gig and couldn’t make it, but he was really upbeat and said he couldn’t wait to play together some more. We were talking about something in the future and he was glad we’d reached out to him, which is all the more reason his death came as such a shock.”

At the moment, Haynes says there’s no talk of taking the Allmans salute on the road. Allmans fans will have to make do with the occasional cover during shows by Gov’t Mule, the Tedeschi-Trucks Band or the Allman Betts Band, fronted by Betts’ son Duane and Gregg’s son Devon. At a recent Gov’t Mule show, for instance, Duane Betts joined the band for “Whipping Post” and the crowd exploded.

But Haynes isn’t sure what lies ahead for continuing the legacy of the Allmans with any sort of permanent combo. “People love the fact that we’re pulling those songs out and rightly so,” he says. “The music has reached a point of timelessness and somebody will keep playing it, and it will be kept alive. But I don’t have any predictions about how that will happen.”

For now, Haynes and his bandmates are simply grappling with the thought of reawakening Allmans classics onstage without turning around to see Gregg Allman or Butch Trucks alongside them. “It’s going to be extremely emotional, and hopefully in a similar way to the last Beacon show,” Haynes says. “Hopefully we can conjure up some wonderful music to match the significance of the moment.”

Wow --- someone(s) were clearly very thoughtful about how to structure the lineup.

Only one I don't understand is Reese Wynans --- what's his connection to the ABB?

Gregg replaced Reese. Pull out your Dreams box set.

Wynans was a member of the Second Coming, which, from November 1968 to March 1969 also included two future and founding members of The Allman Brothers Band: guitarist Dickey Betts and bassist Berry Oakley. Wynans was involved in the initial jam session with Duane Allman, Betts, Oakley, Butch Trucks and Jaimoe that led to the formation of the Allman Brothers Band, but was eased aside in favor of vocalist Gregg Allman, as founder Duane Allman did not want two keyboardists, two guitarists and two drummers all in the same band.

Reese was the keyboard/organ player in the band Duane was putting together that became the ABB before he called Gregg to come home from California to be the singer.

Reese’s “Sweet Release” CD from last year is real nice - his take of Riviera Paradise, from SRV’s 1989 In Step album, I dig just as much if not more as SRV’s - great organist, & the March 10 show at MSG looks only epic

I’m sure Dickey’s health issues are preventing him from being involved, but I find it hard to believe that Devon, Duane and Berry aren’t a big part of this.
