The Allman Brothers Band Family lost another member last night, Kofi
Burbridge.

Kofi a master of keyboards and flute came into the family through his
brother bassist Oteil.

He died in Atlanta on February 15, following complications surrounding
treatment for an ongoing cardiac issue.

He regularly sat in with the Brothers, over 20 times listed on ABB web site,
but there were more shows not listed.

His warm smile, subtle personality and expert music skills made him a
welcome addition every time he was at a show.

Kofi had a standing invitation to play, some times he just came to watch, or
wandered off.

His flute solos on Elizabeth Reed were unique and memorable. His keyboard
contributions were masterful.

Our broken hearts and grief go out to the Burbridge and Tedeschi Trucks Band
families on the loss of Kofi.

His memory, talent and contributions to music will be with us all forever.
