After joining The Allman Brothers Band in 1969, Butch Trucks remained a constant in their 45-year career. The group became one of the most popular bands of the era on the strength of their live performances and several successful albums, including their seminal 1971 live release, At Fillmore East. Trucks also found success after the Allman Brothers Band through his bands Les Brers and Butch Trucks & The Freight Train Band.
Ardmore Music Hall had the honor of hosting Butch Trucks with his Freight Train Band in the spring of 2016. He was scheduled to return to AMH when we sadly learned of his passing. His innovative drumming techniques will continue to inspire others, and his life deserves to be celebrated.
AMH and Trucks’ friends are dedicating a night to remembering all the contributions Trucks made to rock and jam music, playing the music of The Allman Brothers Band, with Grahame Lesh (son of Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh) and his band Midnight North starting off the night.
This all-star lineup features:
Bruce Katz (Les Brers + Butch Trucks & the Freight Train Band) – Keys
Andy Aledort (Dickey Betts Band) – Slide guitar
