Greetings from the deep, deep South - Puerto Rico!
My name is Orlando, and although I am avid rock music fan, I must confess that until recently I had missed out on one of the greatest bands I've ever heard - the ABB. I knew about the ABB's participation at the Mar y Sol Festival in Vega Baja (I was only 9 years old at the time, and unfortunately was not able to attend), but I was mostly steered into later Southern Rock bands via our local FM stations, none of which played ABB music.
Discovering the ABB's music has been a revelation. It is also great to know that Marc Quiñones, a Puerto Rican, is also a part of the band. He's played with the very best in the Latin music world, and it's great to see him play with rock'n'roll royalty!
I am looking forward to making a trip to the US in the not-too-distant future to experience the ABB. I'd like to hear recommendations on the best options for experiencing an ABB concert. Would a music hall such as the Beacon Theater would be a better option than an outdoor festival? I've been reading about the Peach Music Festival, which has a sort of 70's type music festival environment, and that looks like a lot of fun.
Anyways, it's nice to learn more about the band, the music and the people who made it what it was and what it is now.

Look around this place enough and all of your ABB questions will be answered. If you can't find it just go to the particular part of the forum you think would be a good place to ask and do so. The natives are friendly and many have been ABB fanatics for many years
Check out the pics as well!
As for seeing the band live, most of us here take 'em any way we can get them!!! Summer is touring season and winter is Beacon time. In between is indiividual band time as everyone has a side band usually with their name on it... Enjoy!!!
See ya 'round
