The Allman Brothers Band

Newsletter – Kirk-O-Gram 3/2/2009

Hey there sweet family,

Every now and then it’s fun (not to mention an honor) for us to kick back and let someone else take over the keyboard. Tonight is one of those nights. We’re delighted to have Kirk West, who is always in our hearts, here to reach out to you with some incredible news about an a*may*zen (Lana’s word, not Kirk’s yet. Could you tell? 😉 ) auction of front row tickets to see the Allman Brothers Band at the Beacon Theatre, a pre-sale for the movie “Please Call Home: The Big House Years” and the New York theatrical premier of the film.

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeere’s Kirk:

Hey now, boys and girls. Here’s the dealio:

There are 7 nights of front row seats at the Beacon up for auction. All of the seats are front row center AA 106-107 and all proceeds from the auction go to the building fund for the Big House Allman Brothers Band Museum. This is the link to the auctions, and more information:

From 1970 to 1973, the Allman Brothers Band called the Tudor-style mansion on Vineville Avenue in Macon, GA, their home. “The Big House,” as it came to be known, quickly became the communal hub for the band, their family and friends, and that magical era is brought back to life in “Please Call Home: The Big House Years”. This film captures all the joy and sorrow, triumphs and tragedies that the Allman Brothers Band experienced under the roof of the Big House.

You’ve been more than patient waiting to bring this movie home. Now it’s here, and I think you’re going to love the story and the people in it as much as we love bringing them to you.
