Allman Brothers Band Schedule
As the main architects of Southern rock, the Allman Brothers Band pioneered this
brand of music by drawing elements of R&B, rock and roll, soul, blues and jazz. With the help of Cream and the Grateful
Dead, the Allman Brothers Band helped evolve rock as a vehicle for improvised jam sessions.
Their type of jamming demanded
a degree of technical expertise and musical understanding that was fairly new to the rock genre. With mounting, lengthy solos
and the powerful drive of the rhythm section, the Allman Brothers Band were a blues force to be reckoned with from their start
You can find the Allman Brothers Band at the Beacon Theatre in New York, New York. They are scheduled to appear

Allman Brothers Band Background
Brothers Band centered around Gregg and Duane Allman. Younger sibling Gregg first schooled and encouraged Duane to play the
To master the guitar, Duane made the decision to drop out of school. Together the brothers jammed with bands
around Daytona Beach, Florida, in the early 1960s.
The Allman Joys were born in 1965, which blended the Southern blues
and soul sounds that they were inspired by during their youth. The band transformed into the Hourglass. They cut a pair of
albums with their bandmates in L.A., with one being the Power of Love (1968). The albums prophesied the sound that would later
surface with the Allman Brothers Band.
The Allman Brothers Band was officially established in 1969, inking a deal with
the Capricorn label. During the infancy stages of the Allman Brothers Band, Duane also devoted some time to working as a session
musician. He quickly became known as the guitar player in the South. Throughout the years between 1968 and 1970, his music
was used on records for musicians like Clarence Carter, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett and King Curtis. Duane also contributed
his talents to Derek and the Dominos' double album, Layla... and Other Assorted Love Songs.
Duane was also considered
to be the nucleus of the Allman Brothers Band. His brother, Gregg, described Duane as a tremendous motivator: "My brother
was one of the most intense people I've ever met. When he was playing, he just pulled it out of you. I don't care if you were
dog-tired or half asleep, something happened. It was like he demanded it from you."
The Allman Brothers Band (1969)
and Idlewild South (1970) were the band's debut studio albums. The albums featured classic tunes like: Whipping Post, Midnight
Rider, Dreams and Revival. The albums certainly were an apt reflection of the group's Southern rock sound. However, it was
the band's live concert performances that really illuminated their talent. Their live performances left loyal fans in their
Just when the band was really making a name for themselves, the Allman Brothers Band sadly lost two of their key
members to tragedies. Duane Allman was killed in Macon, Georgia, as a result of a motorcycle accident in October 1971, and
Berry Oakley (bassist) died under very similar circumstances in November 1972.
Somehow the group managed to soldier
on. A replacement for Duane was not immediately found, but the band did add Chuck Leavell, a second keyboardist. Lamar Williams
additionally replaced Oakley. As a testament to the Allman Brother Band's buoyancy, the group produced their most commercially
successful albums after the heartbreaking losses of two of their members.
Eat a Peach (1972) - a double album - climbed
to NO. 4, and Brothers and Sisters (1973) claimed the No. 1 spot for five weeks. Dickey Betts (guitarist) eventually moved
to the forefront of the band, testing the waters with the country-rock format evidenced in songs like Ramblin' Man and Blue
Perhaps that Allman Brothers Band's biggest milestone moment was when they shared the bill with the Grateful Dead
and The Band on July 28, 1973, at the Grand Prix Racecourse. Over 600,000 fans were there to witness the moment.
the 1970s, the Allman Brothers Band took a two-year break. They reunited in 1979 but disbanded again in 1982.
1989, they got back together. This time, the Allman Brothers Band revitalized its lineup and cut two of the most inspired
studio albums of their whole career. Where It All Begins and Shades of Two Worlds arrived in the early '90s. The six-year
stint concluded when Warren Haynes (guitarist) and Allen Woody (bassist) left to commit their time to their band, Gov't Mule.
1999, the Allman Brothers Band honored their 30th anniversary with a long-running concert at the Beacon Theatre in New York.
To this day, the band still tours and delivers outstanding performances across the country!
