In light of the recent server crash (or reallocation - whatever) - just wanted to remind folks in my neck of the woods of the Scott Boyer benefit shows that are coming up. I forget the date of the one in Florence (mainly because I won't be able to go to that one), but the Birmingham show (at the lovely, Alabama Theater) is scheduled for April 18. Great tix (Birmingham) are available via TicketMaster.

Scott's given us soome mighty fine tunes. Let's throw somethin' back!

If the Birmingham show is half as good as tonight's show was, it will be incredible. It was the largest collection of talent I have ever seen in one place. Very good crowd at the show.

Simply magic.

Bonnie Bramlett- Whoa, that rocked!!!

More later, I literally took hundreds of photos. Maxed out a 1 gig memory card.

Saw Brent and passed on a hug from all the Peachheads.

Hey Foothills, do you have a setlist or a general idea of who played what-when? Was Wayne Perkins in the house band for this show? I'm extremely pumped about the Birmingham show!

Glad to hear Brent got out. Nothing like good music to take your mind of of "things."

I really had to twist Brent's arm to get him to go. I drove from Huntsville to Oneonta to pick him up, then to Florence for the show, then back to Oneonta and finally home. I got in about 4:30 and feel like I've been run over by a peach truck, but I am so glad to have spent the quality time of more than 5 hours in the car with Brent. He's still having a hard time of it, but I think last night was real good for him. He was asked to bring his guitar, which he did, but unfortunately he didn't get a chance to play. But he did spend the whole show back stage and got some really loving attention from Johnny Sandlin, Tommy Talton, Bill Stewart and others. The show was unbelievable and well worth the sleepy-eyed after-glow I'm having right now! A good sized crowd. Not quite sold out, but close. A great venue. Not as ornate as the AlabamaTheater in Birmingham will be, but an old-style theater like that just the same. Sound was great, performers were awesome and the night was spent with two of my best friends in the world, Foothills and Bro Brent.

Still gotta work today though, so maybe more on the show later this evening. Take Care,

Tom

Last night was about 45 years of music history on the stage. The show lasted a little over 4 hours and smoked from beginning to end. I wish more people could have been there but I know it was kind of far to travel for most people. If Birmingham is half the show last night was, it will be worth twice the price of admission!

I don't know about tapers, but Carl Weaver filmed the show. I don't know what his plans are for the video but will let everyone know when I find out.

From all reports to me, the gig was great. Charlie Haywood of the Charlie Daniels Band might be doing some gigs with the Capricorn Rhythm Section in the future. Dick Cooper did a good job of producing the gig, and this next one should be great as well. A great cause, and a great bunch of cats that made up a lot of the soundtrack to our youth getting together to jam. I hope Carl can work out a DVD from all of it. Have fun at the next one.

DH

Musicians to honor Southern rock legend
Friday, April 06, 2007
The fact that an April 18 benefit for songwriter and musician Scott Boyer will be held at Birmingham's Alabama Theatre, in and of itself, tells you this isn't going to be any run-of-the mill charity fish fry.

But to anyone with any sense of Southern rock, it's the guest list that says it all.

Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band will headline. Bonnie Bramlett, Paul Thorn and Donnie Fritts, a former keyboard player for Kris Kristofferson, will perform along with the Amazing Rhythm Aces, the Capricorn Rhythm Section and the Decoys. Topper Price will appear, as will "Nashville Star" runner-up Zac Hacker.

The names bear witness to a career spent among legends of Southern rock.

"He was a Capricorn recording artist who performed in the group Cowboy" and also worked with numerous other acts as a songwriter and studio musician, said Dick Cooper, an organizer of the benefit show.

Boyer grew up in upstate New York and Kentucky, but his career got under way after he moved to Florida in the '60s. One of his earliest bands, the 31st of February, included Butch Trucks, later a member of the Allman Brothers Band; Duane and Gregg Allman were supporters who later joined the band.

Cowboy, formed in 1968, released four albums on the Capricorn label between 1970 and 1977. The group's songs included Boyer's "It's Time," which blues/rock/R&B singer Bonnie Bramlett later used as the title track of her first solo album.

Cooper said Boyer's most famous song probably is "Please Be With Me," which Eric Clapton recorded on his 1974 album "461 Ocean Boulevard."

Aside from that, Boyer's name should be familiar to many local listeners, given that he lived in the Fairhope/Point Clear area from 1976 through 1988. He was still active with Cowboy when he moved to Lower Alabama, and later appeared with The Locust Fork Band and The Convertibles.

Boyer recalled this week that he also played "hundreds if not thousands of times" as a solo performer at Judge Roy Bean, a popular Eastern Shore hangout that burned in 2005. He said he was the first to play the Bean, the night it opened.

"I've still got a lot of really close friends in that area that I still love," he said. Since 1988 he has been based in the Muscle Shoals, Ala., area, working as a performer, songwriter and studio musician.

Boyer's benefit was prompted by his recent struggles with peripheral artery disease, Cooper said. In February he had surgery that replaced much of his right femoral artery to improve circulation, and expenses related to the illness are ongoing, Cooper said.

Mobile musician Hank Becker said the upcoming benefit for Boyer, to him, was a case of payback. Boyer was one of the artists who played at a 2002 benefit for Becker after respiratory ailments nearly killed him.

"He's always been kind of like a first responder when somebody needed something," Becker said of Boyer. "Now, irony of ironies, he's sick."

This actually will be the second benefit for Boyer. The first took place Wednesday evening in Florence, Ala.

Tickets for the 7 p.m. benefit show are $40 and $50, available through Ticketmaster. For details, visit www.myspace.com/scottboyerbenefit.

Friends who can't attend but wish to make donations can do so by sending checks payable to the Muscle Shoals Music Association, earmarked for the Scott Boyer Benefit. The address is MSMA, P.O. Box 2383, Muscle Shoals, AL 35662. Online PayPal donations may be sent to sboyer-msma-med@yahoo.com.
