After the 5 shows I've seen in 2018, Macon and the 4 in DC, I cannot wait for these webcasts. I'm going to put on my Grados and just melt into the music.

I can't wait, either! This is like free Moogis, I'm gonna plug in my guitar and jam along... I'm also hoping they'll continue their current trend of playing lots of ABB and DTB songs....


DeadMallard - 2/19/2018 at 09:09 PM

Thanks. Have it on my calendar.


shep66 - 2/20/2018 at 01:16 AM

I will be watching these shows. Having said that, living in Philadelphia with no shows on their calendar kinda stings.

I'm on a 12 hr night shift, I thought I'd be able to watch it, but I have an outdated browser with no administrative authority to do anything. Booo, No TTB for me.


DeadMallard - 2/21/2018 at 03:13 AM

thanks again, Peachlovingman

really enjoying this


JimSheridan - 2/21/2018 at 04:06 AM

What a lovely gift to the fans from a band that really, really gets it.


peachlovingman - 2/21/2018 at 04:36 AM

You're welcome everybody- glad we caught this show. See ya tomorrow!

The link isnít working. Only a commercial

Have to let the commercial play out. I was starting to panic. Whew...


slothrop8 - 2/22/2018 at 02:32 AM

Show's been great so far. Had a little bit of everything and the third song is just starting.


axeman - 2/22/2018 at 03:41 AM

I love TTB but I have to say, I am really tired of Derek "taking it down" on all these rocking uptempo songs. It ruins the song. He did it during the opener tonight and all it did was kill the momentum and I'm listening to Bound For Glory now and and they threw in a vocal thing this time but still, why?? I'd like to hear a rocker that STAYS rocking once in a while. Bound For Glory, Keep On Growing, I Want More, The Storm, Leaving Trunk, All That I Need, Crying Over You, Any Day... that's just off the top of my head. It would be nice is even SOME of those songs were just rocking start to finish. I do not get the need to "bring down" so many songs. Please stop. TTB has been my favorite band hands down for the last few years but watching the webcast tonight they opened with a new tune that was rocking and Derek did it AGAIN! Killed the momentum which was a shame because they crushed the song before and after a completely unnecessary "bring down." Anyway, end of rant.

peachlovingman - 2/22/2018 at 04:30 AM

I thought this was an awesome show, with many, many highlights and heart-felt, emotional tributes to those who have died recently. Will the Circle Be Unbroken and All My Friends felt like the electric church to me. Bound for Glory was absolutely incredible, I loved the new gospel arrangement.

Thank you to Derek and Susan for such incredible music- all for free!! It's great to see Derek carry on the legacy of the Allman Brothers Band. I sure hope Dickey can jam with Derek and Susan this summer!

This band frustrates me ! Sometimes they're oh, so good and other times ehh ! I don't think I've ever heard Kebbi Williams play a fluid solo ! It always sounds like he's farting into his sax !

Agree with this too. I wish he would try to play more of a goose-melody during the outdo jam on Don't Know What It Means. It literally sounds like he is strangling the saxophone. And the outro is such a great groove.

Don't mean to be dumping on my favorite band but I need to vent and I am betting many TTB fans feel the same.

The All My Friends was phenomenal last night as was the opener (minus the "bringing it down" part) Always love that Sly medley.

I feel the same way about Susan, and her need to belt her vocals.

She has a nice voice, when she just sings. She doesn't need to knock down walls with it so often.

It's exhausting.


rayg - 2/22/2018 at 03:30 PM

This years Beacon run was when the luster began to wear off for me . Things didn't get any better for me at Tuesday nights show at The Capitol Theater.
I think it's more a matter of some of us preferring the extraordinary combination of Power and subtlety that The Brother's brought to the table on a nightly basis . Looking at the crowd at the Capitol the other night I don't think most people felt the same way I did . It looked like everybody loved everything that was happening on the stage . There was way too much subtlety happening for my tastes.

Disagree, I love what Kebbi does there.


JimSheridan - 2/22/2018 at 04:22 PM

rayg, your post about this band having too much subtlety came right after RPOZ51's post about Susan not being subtle enough.

Every listener has his or her own preferences, certainly. I myself often found the Derek /Warren slugfest got redundant; too many songs ended with both guys playing the highest fastest note on the guitar, over and over, especially unfortunate since each man is so capable of more unique and thoughtful choices.

I think Susan has gotten much better at using her voice with restraint and dynamics. However, I agree that Derek brings it down way too often, to the point of cliche or predictability, often at the expense of a good groove.

I still think overall this is the best live band out there.

Thanks for the link

Going to see them March 3rd and July 22nd

WooHoo ! ! !


rayg - 2/22/2018 at 05:52 PM

I agree with the opinion that TTB is the best live band a music listener with similar tastes to mine will find. The problem is The Brother's set the bar too high . Often the subtlety of The Brothers ( 2000-2014) was the groove laid down by Gregg, Jaimoe, Butch, Marc and Oteill underneath what Warren and Derek were playing.


Joe_the_Lurker - 2/22/2018 at 06:37 PM

My rant with TTB is always that the drummers, for lack of technical ability and vocabulary to effectively communicate what I feel, sound like one drummer. I've been spoiled by Butch and Jaimoe.

Nevertheless, I will still enjoy the hell out of the Tulsa show with my 4th row center section left aisle seats. Can't wait!

[Edited on 2/22/2018 by axeman]



This was my experience at a show I saw last month in Ames. There just wasn't any kind of flow to the show. When they'd build a little momentum, it was crank it down and then follow that up with a slow ballad. I just couldn't get into it at all. That, plus, we got right at 90 minutes of the band (they had an opening act, who also wasn't very good) with between 10-15 minutes of that being a drum solo. Both guys are very talented, but, do that kind of stuff if it's a much longer concert, an evening with. I didn't really pay $75 to hear a lengthy drum solo and less of the band as a group. I was extremely disappointed in that show.

And, there is no bigger fan of Derek on this planet. Plus, I really enjoy most of what this band has done for 7+ years now. The show I saw was a clunker, and, they don't frequent the midwest all that much, which added a layer of disappointment as I can't really catch them live all that much.


tumbleweed - 2/22/2018 at 08:32 PM

I was at Tuesday's show on 2/20 at The Cap. I also left disappointed. I agree they are the best live band today, but wear and tear of constant touring looked evident. Some of my disappoint was driven by how they've spoiled me previously. My last show was the 25th Beacon show in October and it was absolutely fantastic. Tuesday was not perfunctory, but rather pedestrian. I thought the set list was weak. I found the showcasing of 11 individual musicians as forced......and creating lost momentum and rhythm. I also found the sound in Balcony, Row E as less than expected. I listened to some of the show on YouTube the next day and I did not get the same sound in my seat.

Again, I'm spoiled and love the band.......but I passed on an oppty to go back on Wednesday. As another commented, the majority of the crowd seemed pleased............however, for me, this was not their finest collective effort.


jparadise - 2/22/2018 at 08:33 PM

The contrast between power and beauty on a song to song, section to section and a night to night basis is EXACTLY what I love about this band. These are musicians of the highest caliber across the board and you're going to get what THEY'RE feeling that night, which is the ultimate goal for all of us. To translate emotion. You're not always going to like everything. But, to hear people picking apart these nuances of a band that will blow any other touring band off the stage, is silly to me. People are entitled to their opinions but my advice is to enjoy and appreciate what we have when we have it. Kudos to Derek & Susan for having the balls and the passion to do what they're doing out there in such a musically desolate era. I am a musician, it's not that I don't understand the points people are making....I get it, but for me, I'll take anything this band wants to throw at me and I'll learn from all of it.


absnj - 2/23/2018 at 03:15 AM

As someone who never cared for the TTB, I am amazed to be in agreement with many of the posts in this thread... it's a first! But I actually thought the Wedesday night show I watched was better than most of the previous shows I have seen. Go figure.

That is such total **** . If you read my post and dadof2's post, we both said the show was better than previous performances. dadof2 went on to make other positive comments, with which I am in agreement.

Whoa, ha, my opinion: take a serious chill pill. "Haters gonna hate" is typically a pretty light-hearted phrase, so you're overreacting just a bit. Next time I'll use more emojis. But food for thought: I'm not a big Mule fan but I don't dump on every Mule thread rehashing why I'm not into them, but every TTB thread turns into the same negativity wrapped in "hey, it's just my opinion MAN" kevlar. Also, I hadn't read your post so be assured, you are un-denegrated.

I really think people need to calm down a bit. This forum has been very respectful, for the most part, for many years. People have different opinions and are entitled to them. I've known absnj for quite a few years and have never found him to be disrespectful in any way. He has a great ear and typically I agree with his thoughts on music. I happen to think the TTB has been the hottest band on the road since their second album was released. He didn't and that's just fine. He related that he enjoyed the Wednesday show. Lets accept that at face value. Breathe deeply!

That's how I felt about the 2nd show. I'm not even a huge TTB fan, and preferred DTB and ABB, and even late 90s-early 00s mule to TTB, but I saw second show on youtube and enjoyed it a lot, and it was a lot better than other shows of theirs I had heard and watched.

I did think that the opening singer Amy Helm is a far better blues singer and guitarist than Susan is.

Jeanne - 2/24/2018 at 03:55 PM

I watched both shows and first and foremost, I'm totally thankful that was even an option. Not every day you can have live TTB in your living room. I preferred Wed to Tues hands down even with Mike on more up front vocals Tues. That's big for me. Huge Mike fan, here. The tempo just felt sluggish Tues with a spattering of holy crap awesomeness. I'm not a fan of the sax solos, but, I don't gravitate toward that 'whacky' (for lack of a better word) jazzy type music. Maybe I'm just not smart enough to appreciate it. So be it. I'm not smart enough for a lot of things. I understand Derek digs it and this band is his vision. He's at the wheel, not me. I really enjoy Kofi's solos and when he and Derek lock in, I'm in heaven.

All My Friends was a nice touch and tribute to Scott. This band has experienced some real personal loss over the last 18 months. Real gut punches. Kudos to them for forging forward and doing what they love.

Surprised they didn't bring out Amy for a big Dixie encore Wed night. They're usually pretty good about including others to share the love. But, hey, the Sly medley is pretty friggin' groovy.

Amy & Susan in the same night is such a perfect combo. I've never heard or seen Amy Helm play guitar, only mandolin - what did she play guitar on? I miss her guitarist, Dan Littleton, from The Handsome Strangers. Dude seemed to fit her rootsier music better. Not sure why she had a different band.

For Florida folks, Amy Helm will be at Suwanee Spring Reunion in March (bummed I'll be missing that). For NYC folks, she's doing another Woodshedding Residency in April.
