The Allman Brothers, March 2014

Luba onstage at the Beacon Theatre

The Allman Brothers - I have not always been their BIGGEST fan but a FAN nonetheless over the years. And I confess, this was the first time I saw them play live and was I in for a real surprise! Like clockwork, (I was told), the scent of pot began drifting at the downbeat of 8PM when the show was about to begin. A sold out theater begins to get restless and then slowly starts to roar as the musicians walk out on stage with Greg Allman the last to take his place at the keyboards/organ.

The evening a treat!! Taking you back to the 70's but staying current with the agile and furious playing of lead guitarists Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes. Different styles but both dope. Also Marc Quiñones, their percussionist, adds a complex tapestry of rhythmic fills which drives the music ever so intently. And Greg... amazed how great he still sounds in the vocals! A true testament to defying age.

Catch them ANYWHERE this year because 2014 is the last year they'll be touring.

(Note: the four remaining shows at the Beacon Theater in March have been postponed according to a note on their web site.)
