Pre & post Allman Brothers Shows - As part of the Allman Brothers March madness, NYC is the place to be if you want to experience excellent rock music. Numerous shows will take place before and after each Allman show and some will happen during the show in case you were shut out of Beacon tickets.
Allman member, Jaimoe and his contemporary jazz band, Jaimoe's Jasssz Band are scheduled for the midnight show at BB Kings Blues Club on Friday, March 13th. The Peacheaters, a Boston-based, excellent Allman's cover band that has developed a substantial following over the years, will be performing on Friday, March 20th, also at midnight at BB Kings. Devon Allman and his newly reconfigured power trio rock band Honeytribe will be performing a free concert on Friday, March 27th at BB Kings with doors at 11PM. On March 21st at 8 PM, Lucille's Grill, will host the righteous blues rock of the Lefty Collins Band for Allman freaks who weren't able to get a ticket to the Beacon and for other fans of great rock music.
In the Village at Sullivan Hall, Allman after parties include my most favorite new rock band Blues and Lasers, fronted by Scott Tournet, guitarist for Grace Potter's band the Nocturnals and includes Matt Burr, drummer from the same band. I saw Blues and Lasers in November 2008 and felt they capture all the right elements that make up a great modern day rock band that retains the dynamics of the blues from which they emerged. I look forward to their Saturday, March 21st, 11:30 PM show at Sullivan Hall. Earlier in the week on a night off Wednesday, March 18th, Allman Brother member Oteil Burbridge, will be debuting at Sullivan Hall with Go There an experimental, nu-jazz rock band fronted by founder Scott Sawyer. Yosi Piamenta's Heavenly Jams Band and special guests will also appear starting at 8:30 PM on the 18th. On Thursday, Mar 26th at 11:00 PM, Eric Krasno & Chapter 2 will be performing at the Allman Brothers after party also at Sullivan Hall.
In other venue's throughout the city: On Friday the 13th, the amazing Yonrico Scott Band will be performing at midnight at Joe's Pub, a wonderful venue. On Friday March 20th, The Allman/Tyler Band with Michael Allman and Tony Tyler will be performing at the National Underground, Shayni and Kevn's great downtown venue at midnight. On Wednesday, March 25 at 8 PM, on a day off from the Allman Brothers, Derek Trucks will be performing with his band in support of their new cd Already Free at the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ. And last, but certainly not least, Allman after show which will occur twice with Dumpstaphunk, at the Highline Ballroom on Chelsea's on West 16th St. in NYC. On Friday, March 20th and Friday, March 27th, Ivan Neville and his funky, rockin' band Dumpstaphunk will grace the stage and proceed to make you get up and dance. So rest up for Dumpstaphunk and all these great and wonderful rock shows in NYC this March.
While not strictly a musical event, the Hitting the Note Magazine is having a before party on Saturday, March 21st between 2:00 PM and 6:00 PM at Columbus72 just a short distance from the Beacon Theatre. The party is very much a community affair with Jaimoe's Jasssz Band performing to help raise funds for a departed well-loved community member's family. Lots of friendly fans and participants in the Hitting the Web website will be in attendance and it will prove to be the sweetest party of the run. For advanced tickets follow the link.

If we all use one thread for the reminders, it will help. Just my opinion. I think there are many people who can't read the net all day and just need a quick reference guide. Ang
