Gregory Lenoir Allman - Dec 8, 1947 - May 27, 2017
 
Posted on Saturday, May 27, 2017 - 03:59 PM
It is with deep sadness that we announce that Gregg Allman, a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band, passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia.

Gregg struggled with many health issues over the past several years. During that time, Gregg considered being on the road playing music with his brothers and solo band for his beloved fans, essential medicine for his soul. Playing music lifted him up and kept him going during the toughest of times.

Gregg’s long time manager and close friend, Michael Lehman said, “I have lost a dear friend and the world has lost a brilliant pioneer in music. He was a kind and gentle soul with the best laugh I ever heard. His love for his family and bandmates was passionate as was the love he had for his extraordinary fans. Gregg was an incredible partner and an even better friend. We will all miss him.”

Gregg is survived by his wife, Shannon Allman, his children, Devon, Elijah Blue, Delilah Island Kurtom and Layla Brooklyn Allman; 3 grandchildren, his niece, Galadrielle Allman, lifelong friend Chank Middleton, and a large extended family. The family will release a statement soon, but for now ask for privacy during this very difficult time.

The family suggests that tributes to Gregg can be made to the Gregg Allman Scholarship Fund at The University of Georgia or the Allman/Lehman Endowed Scholarship at Syracuse University.

A long time friend and fellow musical explorer has left our realm.


The Allman Brothers Band family have lost another fellow traveler to the time & space continuum.


Bruce was there at the beginning in Piedmont Park and the Atlanta Pop Festival with us. He will be missed.

Allman Brothers Band to Release The Fox Box - Three Nights at Atlanta's Fabulous Fox Theatre
 
Posted on Thursday, March 23, 2017 - 05:54 PM

ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND TO RELEASE

THE FOX BOX

2004 THREE-NIGHT STAND FROM ATLANTA'S FABULOUS FOX THEATRE

When the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND hit Atlanta's Fox Theatre for a sold-out three-night run in 2004, they were buoyed by the critical and fan reception of what would be their final studio album, Hittin' The Note. The band had been touring heavily and were ready to settle down in their beloved Atlanta for three special nights. The shows were released by the then-nascent "Instant Live" program, contemporaneous recordings sold at shows and internet mail order only afterwards without much packaging or fanfare.

Now, the band will release--digitally March 24 and physically on April 28--via RED Distribution all three shows as The Fox Box. The 8-CD set features a remastered audio mix as well as tightening up of the song spacing. And these three September 2004 shows have a unique feature that ABB fans will appreciate: of the 53 songs performed, there is only one repeat, the sprawling "Dreams," played (three times), and each with a different voicing by the guitar soloist: DEREK TRUCKS, WARREN HAYNES and JACK PEARSON.

ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND in 2004 featured founding members GREGG ALLMAN (keyboards, vocals) and drummers BUTCH TRUCKS and JAIMOE along with longtime percussionist MARC QUINONES, guitarists WARREN HAYNES and DEREK TRUCKS and bassist OTEIL BURBRIDGE. Guitarist JACK PEARSON, who was in the band from 1997-99, was a special guest. Other guests include Derek's bandmate/wife Susan Tedeschi, guitarist Vaylor Trucks (Butch's son who was captured on the rear cover of Brothers & Sisters as a child) and keyboardist Rob Baracco (Phil Lesh Quintet/Other Ones).

Since 2002, representatives for the ABB--Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees and Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award honorees--have worked diligently to honor and respect the music of the band, which was founded in 1969. Through their own Peach Records, they have released a number of high-quality, fan-favorite shows including a 40th Anniversary DVD as well as Hittin' the Note and One Way Out CDs, among others.

Tribute to Butch Trucks March 30 at the Ardmore in Philly
 
Posted on Thursday, March 16, 2017 - 04:13 PM

On Thursday March 30th, The Ardmore Music Hall will host a tribute concert to the late Butch Trucks, founding member of The Allman Brothers Band. For one night only, extended members of the ABB family including past and present members of Les Brers, Butch Trucks & the Freight Train Band, The Gregg Allman Band, Jaimoe's Jasssz Band, Dickey Betts Band & more will pay tribute to one of rock & roll's great drummers, following Trucks' tragic passing in January.


Net proceeds go to The Big House Museum in Butch's name. Tickets are going fast: http://bit.ly/ButchTrucksTribute


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.

Celebration of Life - A Memorial Service for Brother Butch
 
Posted on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 - 04:09 PM


Monday, Feb 20, in Macon, Georgia at the Cox Capitol Theatre, Butch Trucks' family and friends held a private memorial service celebrating his life. Memories were shared and stories were told, and it was abundantly clear that Butch had just as profound an impact on people as he did on the music we love so much.

Members of the Allman Brothers Band, Les Brers, the Freight Train Band, Vaylor Trucks and guests performed for us, and the music has never been more poignant. Please continue to send your much appreciated love to the Trucks family, and let Butch's passion and drive inspire you to reach ever higher in your daily lives.
