The Allman Brothers Band

Newsletter – Peach-O-Gram 3/31/05

Hey there sweet family,

So, just how a-may-zen was the Allman Brothers Band run at the Beacon this year? Totally! I’m not going to go on and on about it personally (because I’ve got news to get to, and you might think I’m a little biased), but you can read all about it in the words of members of the fam’ just like yourself who were there, lived it and (trust me) loved it. They’ve shared their straight-from-the-heart thoughts on Hittin’ the Web With the Allman Brothers Band’s Reviews section which you can get to by clicking here:

While you’re reading you might want to open another browser window and check out the fine pix of the Beacon 2005 in the Media Gallery:

Be forwarned, all that high praise and photographic splendor will get you jonesin’ for the next ABB concert. You’re going to be soooo ready for the real thing! Mercifully, that’s only 2 weeks away when the Allman Brothers Band do a double date April 15 & 16 at the Wanee Festival in Live Oak, FL . Oteil and the Peacemakers, The Derek Trucks Band, Gov’t Mule, and tons of other bands will be there too – including a Frogwings reunion! For more information click here:
