AboutAllman Brothers Band
The Allman Brothers Band was founded by the
brothers Duane Allman and Gregg Allman. They were joined by Dickey Betts, Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks and Jai Johanny Johanson
in the early days. They are an incredible example of how well the sounds of blues, jazz and country music come together in
a unique way. They considered themselves progressive and were creative in their infusion of all of their musical influences.
There was no questioning the importance of each band members' influences on the sounds that they were creating or how skilled
each were at playing multiple instruments at different times in their careers. When these musicians came together and joined
as Allman Brothers Band, there was no stopping them.
Allman Brothers Band Breakthrough
Following the Allman
Brothers Band's first two albums, they released a live release called "At Fillmore East" that is considered their artistic
breakthrough. It wasn't long after the success of this release that the band's founding member Duane Allman was killed in
an tragic accident. Thereafter, the Allman Brothers Band released "Eat a Peach" in the memory of their lost band mate. That
album helped to secure the Allman Brothers as a popular band. The heartache of losing one of the original Allman brothers
did not end with him, following "Eat a Peach," the band's bassist, Berry Oakley, passed away too. New members were added to
the band before releasing the album, "Brothers and Sisters". It included everyone's favorite song, "Ramblin' Man." In spite
of the popularity of the band, the Allman Brothers Band decided to go its separate ways in 1976. Alas, it was not the end
of the Allman Brothers Band, as they reformed. The band had three periods in which they were active: 1969-1976, 1978-1992
and 1989-present. It was during the last period in which they have really rocked the world with extensive touring and the
production of more albums. There were a number of changes that took place in the 1990s that included the loss of Dickey Betts
who decided to leave the band; however, the new millennium brought new adventures with Oteil Burbridge, Warren Haynes and
Derek Trucks. The Allman Brothers Band has had a significant number of gold and platinum albums from its beginnings. What
is more is the Allman Brothers Band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the mid 1990s.

Allman Brothers Band Trivia
actual Allman Brothers, Duane and Gregg, discovered music while growing up in Florida. Gregg followed in his brother's footsteps
after Duane picked up the guitar and eventual stopped going to school to focus on playing music. The guys started off in a
band called the Escorts that later became the Allman Joys. They were both interested in different genres of music, including
both rhythm and blues and soul, which is clearly an influence in the Allman Brothers Band sound. During a stint in St. Louis,
the brothers were discovered by a recording executive that brought them out to California where they found little success
before Duane returned to the south of the United States. Duane started to work as a session artist, which enabled him to work
with some of the most influential names in music (e.g. Aretha Franklin). Duane continued to make connections in the music
industry and grow as an incredible musician. Duane eventually made his way back down south where his brother was and started
what became known as the Allman Brothers Band. An interesting note is that one of the names the band considered was Beelzebub.
