Hey there sweet family,
The Allman Brothers Band is deeply saddened by the passing of Fantasma founder and visionary of the Wanee Festival, Jon Stoll. The tradition of the festival will continue April 11 – 12. The confirmed line-up will be announced shortly.
We’re very excited (Whoooooo hoooooo!) to confirm that The Allman Brothers Band will be performing their annual spring fling at the Beacon Theatre in New York City during the month of May. The 2008 shows will be between May 5 and May 24. Exact dates will be announced soon … really soon.
Jaimoe is playing at the Café Luna in Simsbury, CT at 7:30 PM tonight (Saturday, January 26) with Dave Stoltz and the Theresa Wright Band.
Sunday (January 27) Jaimoe premiers his Sunday afternoon jazz sessions at the Café Luna. The jazz sessions run from 3 – 7 PM and feature Jaimoe’s BeBopBand – Frank Kozyra, saxophones; Gabor Virage, flugelhorn and trumpet; Joe Fonda, basses; Paul Arsalanian, keyboards; Jaimoe, drums and leader. Don’t miss it!
