I'm home for the week after ten days and 3,500 miles on the road. I must say that I am pleasantly surprised at how passionate this band is about playing their music. I'm proud of the Allman Brothers Band for not backing down one bit after 38 years on the road. I can't wait to re-join the tour at Jones Beach....Nothing Matters But The Fever!

John Lynskey, the Editor of HTN and myself left Atlanta on Wednesday, August 1st to join the tour and spread the word about Hittin' the Note magazine and the Big House Foundation at most of the shows. We've got a guitar signed by the Bros that we are raffling off at the end of the tour for the Big House and we are also raffling off front row center tickets at each show - to enter the ticket raffle simply renew or subscribe to HTN at the show and be present at the tent to win about 15 minutes before the ABB start. It's been a blast seeing the different winners of these amazing tickets! Two of the winners have been father-daughter combos where another generation gets a first hand look at history.

While John and I take a break, Bill Ector and Rob Johnson are taking over for the next week. Please stop by our tent and make them feel welcome on the road. It's always nice for us to put a face with a name and we've gotten to know quite a few of you over the years. I'll also ask Bill and Rob to give us their impressions of the shows and perhaps pass on some comments from the band along the way.

Best Regards,

JNB

Hi. I'm one of the front row center winners. I promised that I would post about the experience. This is my first time posting so I hope this comes out ok.

I was going to start a new Topic and call it, Saratoga Serendipity.
It started Sunday morning, August 5th. A friend called. He had 2 tickets for the show at SPAC and couldnít go. He knows that I have always been a fan. Well it was a day my daughter was with her mom but I thought I would call anyway. When I called and asked her mom she said ok but my daughter wasnít sure because they were in the middle of something. She would call back.

The last few years, life has kind of been just passing. Iíve narrowed my existence although trying to still be a good dad. Lately I have been feeling better. My daughter just finished middle school and is a great student. She also spends her summers as a counselor-in-training at a community center. We have always shared a love for music and she has a great interest in the history of music. We havenít been away for along time so earlier this summer we took a trip to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We live in New York state and the day we left for Cleveland we went to Strawberry Field in Central Park with friends and then got on AMTRAK. It was a great trip.

Before she called back I called my friend and told him that I would take the tickets. Shortly later I got the call and the next thing you know we were headed north on the Thruway. 2 Ĺ hrs later we got to SPAC.

I thought that with the show starting at early we would get home at a decent hour. It wasnít until we got there we found that there were other bands. I have to say that the location of the HTN tent made it hard to miss. I thought I would take a chance on the front row center tickets which came with a HTN subscription. And also took chances on the guitar (what a beauty) for the Big House Foundation. To show how far out of the loop I have been, I didnít know you could buy a recording of the show so I also got that.

It was our first time to SPAC. Itís a great venue. Found our seats. They were pretty good.
Enjoyed JJ Grey & Mofro and was blown away by NMA. When they were done we headed back to the HTN tent for the drawing. I made sure she held the ticket for luck. Well we won. Gave our old tickets to someone who had also been in the drawing that said they would give them to someone on the lawn. Then we headed to our seats. WOW!

Itís hard to explain my feelings that night. I know this is getting long and I havenít mentioned the Allman Brothers Band yet. Well the show was incredible. Maybe Iíll review it else ware. My daughter says she still canít believe it. Can you believe my luck being able to bring her to her first concert and having it be the Allman Brothers Band front row center.

Thanks to you guys from the HTN tent it was my pleasure to have met you. It was good to see you again in Boston. Who knows maybe Iíll see you again sometime.

Paul S

Kind of like catching a 17 lb bass on your 1st cast.
Congrats and welcome to HTN hp.

Hi Teresa,

I don't think we are going to be able to give away any front row seats as that "other band" has got them all. But we would like to raffle off a picture of you wearing the HTN sandwich board and feather boa! I'm sure we will have lots of takers!

Love ya - see ya in the ATL,

JNB

Hey Everybody! After a beautiful day of driving through Shenandoah National Park, Bill and I are in the DC area, ready for tomorrow's show at Nissan

Raleigh and Virginia Beach were both top notch shows, a great way to start off my leg of the tour. It was great to see lots of friendly faces at Raleigh, including Lana, Lee, GreatScott, Brofan, BigSixPeachHead, EasyMichael and many, many more! This sequence from the Raliegh show really knocked me out...

The Same Thing>
JaBuMa>
In A Silent Way tease>
Mountain Jam>
Smokestack Lightning>
Black Hearted Woman/Other One Jam>
Mountain Jam

This was some of the deepest, most exploratory jamming I've ever seen the ABB do. We listened to the whole sequence twice in the car today JJ Grey from Mofro added harmonica and vocals on Smokestack, and even kept up pretty well when the band ripped into the hard-driving BHW jam. The Revival encore featured great solos from Warren and Derek and was a worthy way to follow up the madness listed above.

Virginia Beach was a show with lots of deep cuts, a real show for the hardcore fan. This version of The Sky Is Crying with JJ from Mofro on harp and several other guests was a bluesfest extravaganza, and as a Hendrix fan I was thrilled to hear Manic Depression. Possibly the best part of the whole night was BigSixPeachHead winning the front row seats on her birthday! You just can't make this stuff up, folks...

As a Deadhead, I'm looking forward to this week's run with Ratdog, should be a good time Ron, I'll see you in Pixbergh I'm the tall blond guy with the beard who isn't Bill

More updates to come!

I believe I met Bill at the Beacon in 06.

He played with Lefty at BB King's on 3/18, right?

If I can't figure out who's tall, blond, and bearded at the HTN tent, I'll ask Benjamin.

Or Karen.

See you in Pixberg.

Hey Ron, I've been lucky enough to spend quality time with both Karen and Benjamin the past few days, so I'm pretty confident they could pick me out of a lineup

Hopefully it won't come to that, of course...

$25 Bluedad??? Is that all I am worth to you??? You must be cheating on me again.


Hey Joe, if it's not too hot on Sept 8th and you can find my sandwich board and the feather boa then I will wear all that really cool advertising garb( but not the fishnets cause they cause a rash) and lead a conga line of DMB fans to the HTN and BIG House booths so they can gobble up some really good merch and history lessons.

Ok start the guesses of how many DMB fans will have an ephiphany in the Park.

I LOVE this!~I've thought that you guys should do a "On the road w/ HTN" in the actual magazine for years!
This should definitely stay a tradition,guys.
It is so wonderful to have the insight & perspective from the eyes of our HTN Brothers on the road..... & the experiences are limitless,I'm sure!
I am hoping to still try to pull off the Pittsburgh show on Wednesday.....but I had a pretty serious(at least for healing time)fott injury last week & I don't know if I really should push it too much.(I'll find out what my doctor says tomorrow at my appointment)

Safe travels & Best Vibes on the road,Sweet Brothers!
