Gregg's band last night was superb.

He played many more songs from his ABB set list than normal > Dreams & Wasted Words in particular........it is hard for me to watch Jamo do all of the set up work and then have Steve Potts come and bang away > he is not the groove finesse drummer Jamo is in my opinion at all.

Gregg was even funny and the band is so so tight tight tight.......keys, sax, and guitar were superb.

He looked great too.

Was this show with Honeytribe? Did the Allmans play together at all? I saw a show with Honeytribe opening for Gregg and there was no sit-in. I was a little bummed.

Another great Gregg show......

Devon gets better all the time and they did a great Dreams together....

2 GAM's.... Floating Bridge he bummed a note & it was the first time I ever seen him get rattled from a flub....

Shook his head in disgust , he usually just keeps on truckin' like it never happened.....

Then once when he " thought " it was introduction time & the band was striking up the next tune so he laughed it off and went with em'.......

What else is there to say...... He is the VOICE

Thanks for posting that and good for you.
Did you see any tapers at the show?
I did see gregg with honeytribe on the bill at westbury and upac,
and I only wish that they would do more songs together during the show...
what a team they are together.

Dreams, nice. I'm glad it wasn't Midnight Rider or something short where Devon doesn't get to play much. Thanks for the info.

I too am a fan of Jaimoe. However, Steve Potts is really solid. I've seen him several times and think he's a great fit with Gregg. Check out his Myspace Page - he's played with a long list of big time players - Booker T & The MG's, CSNY, Boz Scaggs, Buddy Guy, Robin Ford, and a bunch more.

Jaimoe's band is really good, and it's good to see them opening most of the shows on this tour of Gregg's. It's natural fit.

Was also lucky enought to attend show last night. Had seen GAF last summer, and they were much tighter tonight. Greg looked to be fighting a cold, although he never complained about it, just played through. My view was standing in the balcony,
( bummer, but I couldn't finalize plans sooner and standing was all that was left!) so it was a different perspective than previous Allman shows. Songs that stood out for me were Theses Days ( had some tuning problems ... waited it out ... " I want to do this right for you guys!"). Dreams was fabulous, and one reason was Devon Allman sitting in. From my upstairs view he could have been Duane, standing right where he did, next to Gregg. And what was really cool was how Gregg, who normally just looks down at the Organ, looked over to watch Devon during his solo. What a proud moment for both father and son. Highlight of the night for me, for sure.
Just Before the Bullets fly is a favorite, and as good as Scott Sherrard is I still prefer Dangerous Dan's guitar on that song. But the whole band was very tight. Whipping Post was very good. There was a guest percussionst who was never introduced, but played some cool stuff On Dreams and a few other songs. Does anyone know who that was?

Gregg seemed to really enjoy Floating Bridge, the first encore song. The final, One Way Out was just great. Steve Potts and Jerry Jermott really got a chance to stretch out, the crowd was way up, and no one wanted the song to end.

A real touching moment occurred during the introductions. After Gregg introduced his band, the sax player introduced Gregg, which had not happened in othe GAF shows I have seen. The crowd applauded, and applauded, and gave Greg a standing ovation. Most long time fans were grinning ear to ear.

After the show Devon hung around for pictures and autographs. Was very gracious to all. And back at the bus, Gregg came out to sign a few autographs. About 50 people waited patiently until Gregg announced he was freezing his balls off and needed to get back where it was warm. Only an handful of the 50 got autographs, but I don't think anyone left disappointed. For me it was just cool to see him up close.

Some have speculated we will see less ABB shows and more Mule, Warren, Derek , Jaimo solo stuff. if that is true, I will still feel satisfied with fuutre shows like last night's. It was a great show. I hope others will share reviews of his show during this tour.

thank you!

And the young guy that did the encore with the tribe.....

sorry my post was not complete.........others filled in for my gaps and somewhat purposeful omissions.......thanks.

I am not much of a fan of the tribe band but they showed some rockin' capacity.......although George had a great moment where he sounded just like Jaco!! but his whole thumpin' thing is redundant & over the top for me.......

the Tribe's drummer was spot on tight and good he played the kit with finesse > unlike Potts who bangs and I thought his drum break in OWO was not impressive at all. He got kinda lost in it and was banging around just for the fill......

but I am hyper-critical on drummers and I have never thought he was a good fit.....he is a banger.

now the roadie Jamo should be the drummin' man in that band.......the bass player and Jamo carried the 3 count groove in Dreams > Potts did not "have it".

onward.

oh wish I were seein' the JJ Jazzzzy Band.

well i meant to get to this sooner. St. Louis show was great!!!!! The band was so tight i was just thinking, someone better be taping this. Devon was awesome. I saw him open for Gregg last January in New Jersey. Show was good, but this year, both bands were "hittin' the note"!!! I got to meet Devon in Jersey last year, and this year i got to talk to him again. My wife was with me, and, lets just say she thinks he is good looking. Hahahaha. I got a picture of both of them. Anyways, the crowd was great and music excellent. As for the missed chord in encore, ooops. Gregg sounded really good. Please someone vine this.
