Hello there!

My name is Florence and I live in the south of the Netherlands. I'm 29 years old and sing in a band. Lately I've been trying to play some guitar too.

Three years ago I was introduced to the band Mescalero (we did not have that name yet). We play blues/rock covers only. Our playlist excists of song form Pat Travers, Walter Trout, Mothers Finest, Monti Amundson, ZZ Top and ofcourse: the Allman Brothers band.
I didn't know ABB at first, but I got blown away by there songs (thanks to my bandmembers). I love the lyrics and sphere of the songs. The ABB started my journey in southern rock and (outlaw)country.
Some lyrics and songs from the ABB mean a lot to me. They helped me get through a tough time. I got inspired and deceided that 'I ain't waisting time no more'. When I drive to my work I like to listen to 'ponyboy'. What especially hit me most was the song 'if heartaches were nickels' from Joe Bonamassa featuring Gregg Allman. It hit me right in the heart and soul.

So I like to thank you ABB, for comming in to my life!! I hope to see you play once....

if you want to check our band: www.mescalero.nl

Love from Florence!!!!

Well, it's not a big issue at the moment. We as Dutch people are used to it. And it's not true that all people smoke weed here. A lot of them have tried it though. Let me say that it's not a normal thing in the Netherlands if you smoke weed everyday (that will make you an addict!!) haha! The Netherlands are okay, but damn it's so small!!!

But tell me Heineken515, how is it to live in the USA?

And Enzo, thank you for checking out our webiste! Please don't hesitate to leave a message in our guestbook (which is 'gastenboek' in Dutch).

Love from Florence

Welcome Florence !!!

I'm Dutch myself (stom om dit in het Engels te typen maar-ja...) and live down south in Maastricht. I'm a regular on this website for many many years. Every now and than a fellow countryman finds his or her way to this website but most of them kinda drift of again and hardly come back to visit. I hope you will become a regular too! The more fellow Dutch or other European fans find their way to this website the better (not that there is anything wrong with our brothers and sisters in the USA!!!). You will find out that most regulars are very kind, helpfull and generous music fans and are very good company!
Every now and than the website gets a visit from a "troll" who only wants to stir things up just for the sick fun of it and sometimes discussions can get a bit out of hand. But most of them are elsewere on this forum (most of them in the "Whipping Post" section).
This website is THE place on the web for Allman Brothers Band fans but i also want to give you this link to a fantastic website by a fellow Dutchman called Hans van Rijswijk.
It has great info on the bandhistory (timeline/bandmembers), the official discography, bootlegs, traded shows and sessionology of Duane Allman's great work outside the ABB.
A whole bunch of the avialable cdr cover art is made by me and emailed to Hans as part of dozens of ABB related cdr trades.

Here's the link: http://www.abbdiscography.com

Yep, Hans has an impressive collection. I met him an a couple of occasions (at Gov't Mule shows in Amsterdam and Tegelen and at a Derek Trucks Band show in Amsterdam).
He isn't freguenting on this website (at least he doesn't post here) mainly due to all the work he has maintaining his own website and being on the prowl for new items for his ever expanding collection.

BTW, have you been going to any of these festivals over here in "our region":
Bluesrock Tegelen, Moulin Blues Ospel, Bospop Weert, Belgian R&B Festival Peer or
Arrows Rock Festival? Great festivals past and present!!!

Cool that your band plays ABB songs (the other bands you mentioned are great too BTW)
so i might check them out soon.

Groetjes,

ABBDutchFan / Roger

I guess it doesn't matter what country you're in,the south's the south.

Welcome aboard Florence.

Hell yeah! The south's the best (also in the Netherlands).

Are there people using MSN from this site? That makes conversation much faster and easier.

Well Florence, you putting the same question back to me made me realize how silly it was of me to ask it in the first place, especially with the weed reference and for that I apologize.

I've been to Amsterdam twice and was much enamored by the cannabis cafe culture as any weed person from the states would be. But I was also deeply impressed by the European culture in general. Public transportation that works, fresh food markets for your daily shopping, everything neat and seemingly waste free...

Anyhow, I live in North Florida, not to be confused with Miami/Orlando or Tampa...much more like Georgia and I'm not talking Atlanta. What I'm trying to say is I live in a very rural area and even the city I live near (Jacksonville) is not that big and is very much rooted in the 1950's and 1960's.

I live on a bit of land out in the woods with my wife and two boys. We love it, wildlife, peace and quiet. The thing about living "out" is that it tends to make me way more of a hermit than I thought I was prior to moving here. We absolutely love to have people/friends/neighbors over, but we live a life that if someone comes over, we know about it in advance...no one simply drives up un-announced, and I kind of like that.

I go to as many concerts as I can, but am getting very selective...no big cavernous sheds for me anymore...the smaller the theatre, the better. Fortunately for me, the bands that appeal to me aren't doing the stadiums and such anymore...

We have a very cool annual festival ( going on the third year ) called Wanee Fest here in Florida and lucky for me it is about an hour or so west of where I live.

www.waneefestival.com

The Allman Brothers and Gov't Mule headline and play two straight nights along with an assortment of other up and coming bands.

I'm in my 40's and started to go to concerts when I was about 14 or 15 and as such have seen quite a few. I'm a rock and roller at heart, nothing like a rock guitar screaming front and center. The louder the better...unfortunately that has started my hearing on a way sooner than normal decline.

See this thread, apparently many folks on this website have the same issue:

http://www.allmanbrothersband.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=XForum&file=v iewthread&tid=53559#pid

Anyhow, way more than you asked for...welcome to the site.

Investigate the Forum called Vines:

http://www.allmanbrothersband.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=XForum&file=f orumdisplay&fid=122

It is one of the coolest things about this website. You find a show advertised that you wish to get, put your name on the "vine list", send the person in front of you a PM with your address and the vine you are talking about and voila, sooner or later you'll receive a package in the mail with that show on disc. You copy it to your hard drive and/or make a copy on CD, then forward the originals to the person who has signed up after you and has sent you their address. There are a few more rules which you can read about in the thread, but it is not complicated at all and a great way to get top notch recordings of various concerts from your favorite bands. Believe me, it seems daunting and complicated, but it isn't.

If you have questions about "vining" or anything else for that matter, ask it here on this website, PM me or whatever...there are many, many awesome folks on this website.

Glad you found it.
