2015’s premiere Laid Back Festival proved an indisputable success, with New Jersey’s Asbury Park Press declaring it “a crowd-pleasing blend of classic rock along with food and spirits.” The event – which saw timeless performances from Allman, The Doobie Brothers, Bruce Hornsby and The Noisemakers, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band, and more – was hailed as a crucial new milestone on the increasingly busy summer concert schedule. “Laid Back filled a void left by the Allman Brothers Band,” wrote Relix, “who played Jones Beach most summers from their late-career comeback through 2013.”

Gregg Allman has also slated a wide range of headline dates throughout the summer, as well as top billed appearances at a number of major music festivals. Highlights include a series of July double bills with Peter Frampton, a September co-headline tour with ZZ Top, and eagerly awaited sets at Floyd, VA’s Floyd Fest (Saturday, July 30th) and The Peach Music Festival at Scranton, PA’s Montage Mountain (August 11th).

About GREGG ALLMAN:

Gregg Allman is truly among rock and roll’s greatest and most influential artists, his soul-fired and still utterly distinctive voice one of the defining sounds in all of American music. From his founding role in the one and only Allman Brothers Band to his long and storied solo career, Allman has consistently proven himself to be an iconic singer/songwriter and exceptional practitioner of the American blues tradition, both aspects masterfully represented on 2011’s GRAMMY® Award-nominated solo landmark, LOW COUNTRY BLUES. Allman has accrued a remarkable list of honors over his five decade career, including the ABB’s 1995 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award at the 54th Annual GRAMMY® Awards. Allman detailed his brilliant career in 2012’s acclaimed memoir, My Cross To Bear. Now available in both hardcover and paperback, the New York Times best seller chronicles a truly astonishing life and creative journey, all informed by the wisdom and hindsight of Allman today, the survivor of unimaginable loss, alcohol and drug addictions as well as a successful 2010 liver transplant. Allman quickly followed the Allman Brothers Band’s 2014 final concert run with the 2015 release of BACK TO MACON GA, a live two disc CD/DVD set capturing Allman and his eight-member band blowing the roof off Macon, GA’s venerable Grand Opera House with a set comprising dynamic blues covers, solo classics like “Queen of Hearts” and “I’m No Angel,” and of course, such ABB favorites as “Melissa,” “Midnight Rider,” and “Whipping Post.” Allman is currently completing work on a new solo album, tentatively slated for release later this year.

NEW SHOW DATE – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2016

MOTHER’S FINEST, ANOTHER GEORGIA FAVORITE

ADDED TO THE FESTIVAL!

  Last Thursday, Dusty Hill of ZZ Top, was injured prior to an event in Texas.  Dusty has subsequently undergone treatment for his fractured shoulder forcing the band to postpone many of their spring concert dates; including the May 7th Laid Back Festival performance in Atlanta.

Dusty Hill, offered this comment, “My physicians told me that this type of injury is usually associated with contact sports.  I’m not sure bass-playing qualifies as such but they’re doing their best to get me back in the game as soon as possible.  Thanks to everyone for all the good wishes we’ve received.  We’re determined to enjoy a speedy recovery and to see you soon!”

The goal was to keep this festival intact while Dusty recovers rather than attempting to replace with another band.   Laid Back Festival’s curator and headliner, Gregg Allman, commented “Laid Back Fest in Atlanta was coming up soon and I was getting really excited for it. Was going to be the first one of the five! No better place to start than in my home state. So I’m disappointed that we have to postpone it, but there’s no way I’d want to do it without ZZ Top. Once we’re there, we’ll all be glad we waited.”

When the festival takes place on the new show date, Saturday, October 29, 2016; the line-up will include Gregg Allman, ZZ Top, Blackberry Smoke, Michele Malone, Stonerider, Gabriel Kelley and Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band.  Unfortunately due to scheduling conflicts, Kevn Kinney Band will not be on the new show date.  Georgia’s own funk-rock band, Mother’s Finest has joined the festival.  Local food trucks, breweries and vendors will all still partake in this amazing festival.  Fans are encouraged to hold onto their tickets purchased for the original festival date which will be honored on the new show date in October.

 

 

MAY 7TH FESTIVAL TICKETS WILL BE HONORED AT THE NEW SATURDAY,

OCTOBER 29TH FESTIVAL DATE.

Gregg Allman Live-750x375

April 13 North Carolina Show

For over 45 years, I’ve been fortunate to play music all around this country and the world. I’ve been honored to know and be friends with many different people from all walks of life. Although we, as a nation, have made progress in many areas, it’s sad and infuriating that some, in 2016, are still working so hard to take the rights away from our brothers and sisters, as in the cases of “bathroom laws” recently passed in North Carolina (HB2 – Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act) and Mississippi (‘Religious Liberty’ bill 1523), discriminating against the LGBT community.

I know that North Carolina is a state full of good folks and loyal fans, many of whom are angry about and feel misrepresented by this action. My band and I will continue to play our show as scheduled there tomorrow, April 13, and hope that our music unites people in this challenging time. We stand in solidarity with the LGBT community urging Gov. McCrory to listen to the people and reverse this wrong.

Gregg Allman has also slated a wide range of headline dates throughout the summer, as well as top billed appearances at a number of major music festivals.

About GREGG ALLMAN:

Gregg Allman is truly among rock and roll’s greatest and most influential artists, his soul-fired and still utterly distinctive voice one of the defining sounds in all of American music. From his founding role in the one and only Allman Brothers Band to his long and storied solo career, Allman has consistently proven himself to be an iconic singer/songwriter and exceptional practitioner of the American blues tradition, both aspects masterfully represented on 2011’s GRAMMY® Award-nominated solo landmark, “LOW COUNTRY BLUES.” Allman has accrued a remarkable list of honors over his five decade career, including the ABB’s 1995 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award at the 54th Annual GRAMMY® Awards. Allman detailed his brilliant career in 2012’s acclaimed memoir, My Cross To Bear. Now available in both hardcover and paperback, the New York Times best seller chronicles a truly astonishing life and creative journey, all informed by the wisdom and hindsight of Allman today, the survivor of unimaginable loss, alcohol and drug addictions as well as a successful 2010 liver transplant. Allman quickly followed the Allman Brothers Band’s 2014 final concert run with the 2015 release of “BACK TO MACON GA,” a live two disc CD/DVD set capturing Allman and his eight-member band blowing the roof off Macon, GA’s venerable Grand Opera House with a set comprising dynamic blues covers, solo classics like “Queen of Hearts” and “I’m No Angel,” and of course, such ABB favorites as “Melissa,” “Midnight Rider,” and “Whipping Post.” Allman is currently completing work on a new solo album, tentatively slated for release later this year.

Gregg Allman Begins Work on New Studio Album

Gregg and his band are in the studio working on a new album!  And it’s not just any studio – it’s Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals!

Scott Sharrard, Gregg’s music director and lead guitar playing with his band, posted this great note on Facebook – a perfect intro for the photos we can share, sent to us by Matthew Butler, the photographer lucky enough to be in the studio with Gregg and the band.

Scott Sharrard

New York, NY ·

On August 23rd, 2008 I auditioned for Gregg Allmans band at an Allman Brothers concert in Camden, NJ. Taking the stage with that band for the first time was one of the most thrilling and intimidating moments of my life. Luckily I passed the test and after many miles on the road, a live album and so many internal band changes I now find myself getting ready to fly to Muscle Shoals this Thursday to begin work on Gregg’s first studio album with his own band since the 1980’s (Sea…rching for Simplicity and Low Country Blues were done with mostly studio sidemen instead of Gregg’s touring band). Not only that but we are recording at Fame studios, the rosetta stone of soul music. We are also lucky enough to have Don Was at the helm as Producer, who has already proven himself to be the down to earth maestro that we had all hoped for. I’ve been hearing Gregg sing the songs we wrote together as well as the new cover he’s doing of my song “Love Like Kerosene” for a couple years now. I couldn’t hope for a better setting or band to realize these tunes as well as the cover song ideas that Don, Gregg and I and the band have come up with. Of course my solo band will be on pause for the month but we are coming back strong in April and through the summer. We are getting asked to play a lot of festivals, of course my touring schedule with Gregg is going to be busy but we have at least managed to lock down a slot in our own backyard in Upstate NY at Mountain Jam. Many more gig announcements for Gregg and my group to come. And I will be putting out that new Live album of my own this summer, stay tuned for that as well. I feel like music in general is getting better and I hope I can play some part in helping to protect it with all these projects. One thing for certain is that I will continue to work hard and be thankful for the incredible journey that its been. It’s a job that I truly love and Ill be a fan for life. Onwards.
