Former Allman Brothers Band guitarists Jack Pearson and Dickey Betts teamed up for takes on “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed” and “Ramblin’ Man” at the 12th and Porter nightclub in Nashville last night. The duo got together during a jam session that was led by singer/guitarist Lee Roy Parnell as part of a celebration of Gibson’s new Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Paul electric guitar. A number of other musicians also took the stage over the course of the night, including Charlie Daniels, Jimmy Hall and Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Gary Rossington and Rickey Medlocke.

Earlier in the evening, the aforementioned guitarists all took part in a panel discussion at the nearby Gibson Entertainment Showroom, where they signed the backs of the new limited edition guitars. Much of the discussion centered on the late Duane Allman, with the panelists expounding on his contributions to the Southern rock sound.

It would have been cool, but 12th and Porter has no air conditioning so it was blistering hot. Some folks had to leave because of the heat. But it was good to see Charlie, Bonnie and Bekka and a few others. Jack and Dickey (and Lee Roy and the house band) were going to do Southbound, but Dickey had been to the dentist and his mouth was a little sore. Paul Riddle sat in on drums with a few folks, and Tommy Talton played an acoustic with his son and did "Please Be With Me".

It was a private event, so the only tapers would have been some cell phone footage, and the sound, as it often is at jams, was not very good. Some footage may escape, but it will be low quality.
