Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution Exhibit coming to St. Petersburg, FL
 
Posted on Tuesday, June 05, 2018 - 01:30 PM


Bill Graham holds a special place in our hearts and we are thrilled to let you know that the Florida Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg is hosting the Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution exhibition from August 18, 2018 through February 10, 2019. A Gibson Les Paul owned by Duane Allman will be on display along with memorabilia, photographs, archival concert footage, historical and new video interviews, ephemera, and psychedelic art.


Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution is both a deeply personal reflection on Graham’s life and an exploration of how Graham helped transform rock music into the immersive, multi-dimensional, and highly lucrative phenomenon of rock theater that persists today. Treasured photographs and artifacts from Graham’s early life and career will be on loan from the Graham family, many on view to the public for the first time. Also for the first time ever, preparatory drawings and the original artwork of several iconic Fillmore concert posters will be on museum display, revealing the signature visual styles and creative process of poster artists Bonnie MacLean, Wes Wilson, David Singer, Greg Irons, and David Byrd.


This exhibition explores the extraordinary life of Bill Graham (1931- 1991), a renowned music promoter who helped launch and promote the careers of countless rock & roll artists. It also traces the indomitable spirit of a man brought to the United States as an eleven-year-old Jewish refugee fleeing the Nazis, fueling a lifelong passion and advocacy for social justice.


Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution opens to the public on August 18, 2018 and will be on display through February 10, 2019 at The Florida Holocaust Museum.

The ABB Mourns the Loss of Floyd Miles, Long time Family Member and Brother
 
Posted on Friday, January 26, 2018 - 03:27 PM

The Allman Brothers Band are saddened by the recent passing of our long time friend Floyd Miles.


Floyd was a childhood friend of his Daytona Beach neighbors Duane and Gregg Allman. As a member of The Universals, a seminal local 60’s soul band, he was the singing drummer who schooled the Allman boys in blues, soul and R&B music. He was the friend who took them to the barber shop across the tracks to buy the discs that became the musical foundation that spawned the Allman Brothers Band. In later years he toured as a member of the Gregg Allman Band, regularly singing his song “Back To Daytona” The Allman Brothers Band family and crew will miss this family member and brother, our sincere heartfelt sorrow go out to the Miles family.

Dickey Betts to Tour in 2018
 
Posted on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 - 02:35 PM

Dickey Betts announced today, on his birthday, December 12, that he will return to the road for a select group of dates in 2018.

As reported in an exclusive interview in the Sarasota Herald Tribune, Dickey said “Everywhere I go fans keep saying they want me to get out and play again ... I think the time is right.”

The 2018 concert dates will feature Betts peppering his setlists with songs written by Gregg Allman, whose credits include “Midnight Rider,” “Melissa” and “Whipping Post.” The 23-minute live version of “Whipping Post” from the Allman Brothers Band’s masterful, breakthrough album “At Fillmore East” famously features the dual lead guitar playing of Betts and Duane Allman.
“I think the fans deserve to hear a few of Gregg’s song as well, so I’m pulling out some classics,” Betts said.

“We really gave this a lot of thought as to how and what the show will be,” Spero said. “Even I can’t wait to see it.” 

The Dickey Betts Band hitting the road in 2018 will consist of Dickey and son Duane sharing lead guitar duties.

“Dickey is talking to some of the guys he has played with,” Spero said. “We should know in a couple of weeks who will comprise the band.”
