Live At The Fillmore – A Tribute to The Allman Brothers Band (Late Show)
LIVE AT THE FILLMORE is the continuing devotion of very talented musicians performing the music of the original Allman Brothers Band as it was performed in those early years before the untimely deaths of Duane and Berry Oakley and the departure of Dickey Betts. Those years were the ‘glory days’ of the Allman Brothers Band. Gregg Allman has been quoted as recently as 2003 by fellow band member Butch Trucks in stating that rather than being a jam band The Allman Brothers are ‘a band that jams’. Our perspective on themusic is that rather than free-form in structure, form and content it is a body of work largely composed after much trial and error and ‘jamming’ in order to extract those elements which ultimately became part of the finished songs. Anyone who had the good fortune to hear the Allman Brothers shows ‘back in the day’ on the same or successive nights will corroborate that though they did leave room for improvisation and personal expression, for the most part the songs remained the same. This has continued to be our approach to performing their music.
LIVE AT THE FILLMORE brings back authentically the performances of the original Allman Brothers Band for those who were there to hear and still remember them along with those who have a similar love of this music and wish they had been there with us. We hope you enjoy listening to LIVE AT THE FILLMORE!
