Newsletter: Live at the Fillmore and Eat a Peach, Live!
 
Posted on Monday, November 21, 2011 - 02:06 PM
Hello sweet family,

We normally try not to send out too many Peach-o-Grams close together because y'all are very nice to us and we don't want to become like the house guest that doesn't seem to notice the hosts are yawning, stretching, and looking at the clock! But we just heard some awesome news and it's time critical, so we just have to share.

Warren just called WMMR DJ Pierre Robert to tell him that in honor of his being on the air for 30 years, which is pretty amazing in today's radio scene, the ABB will play the Live at the Fillmore East album setlist in its entirety this Friday, 11/25, at the Tower Theatre show!

Holy Turkey, stuffing and sweet potatoes Holiday Man, if that doesn't get your pulse pounding, you're on the wrong mailing list!

Very cool, huh?

But that's not all -- Gregg called Carter Allen at WZLX and said that the band was really getting into this idea and didn't want to let the Boston fans down, so they are going to play Live at the Fillmore in its entirety on Tuesday, 11/29, and Eat a Peach on Wednesday, 11/30 at the Orpheum!

I sure hope the tapers turn out in droves for these shows -- wow, they will be recordings we listen to for years to come. I had a reel-to-reel recording of the private party Fillmore East show (the one that was broadcast on FM, not the "Holy Grail" show) and I must have played that thing a thousand times.

But -- that's looking ahead -- right now, if your plans can get you anywhere near Philly or Boston for these shows, go, go, go!

Lana and I wish you all the very best for a great Thanksgiving holiday, and as always,

Take care and know that you are loved!

Rowland and Lana

Newsletter - Peach-O-Gram for November 17, 2011
 
Posted on Thursday, November 17, 2011 - 07:33 AM
Hey sweet family,

Is it really almost Thanksgiving and the holiday season? Feels like we were just enjoying the long days of summer! We need something to cheer us up after driving home in the dark from work... man we hate that!

You know we wouldn't bring you down without a plan to bring you up, right? We have the remedy! Actually we have several of them...

Rx #1: See the ABB live! Boston is a pretty town during the holidays, and the ABB is playing four nights at the Orpheum! December 2 and 3 are sold out, but there are still some tickets for the Boston ABB shows at the Orpheum on November 29 and 30. I've noticed that with repeated tries you can sometimes even get tix for Dec 2 or 3, so don't give up! Tickets held back for the press, friends and family do get released if they are not needed.

Rx #2: See the ABB live! No, this is not a stuck record. (Remember those?) Philly is a cool town too, and there are two nights at the Tower! Friday Nov 25 still has some availability, and Saturday Nov 26th is sold out. Got the post-Thanksgiving, "already seen all the new movies" blues? Hey, it's a long weekend -- Road Trip!!

These shows are going to be like Beacon shows -- an intimate theater setting, great jams, and folks, this is it until next March! Get your fix now!

Rx #3: Can it be Wanee?! It Can-ee! This festival is one of the coolest, most laid back, friendly, music-packed events of the year. It is big enough to have more live music than you probably normally consume in a year, but still small enough to feel like a big family, not a mob. The 2012 edition of Wanee is being held April 19 - 21 at the usual spot - the Spirit of the Suwanee Music Park in Live Oak, FL. Man, just thinking about Live Oak, FL helps with those "it's dark out already and the temperature's dropping" winter bluezzz! And you have to love the feeling of that name, "the Spirit of the Suwanee!" A limited number of early bird special tickets are going on sale on Monday, December 5 at 10AM. Three day tickets are $165 and these limited tix are only on sale through Sunday, Dec 11 or when they sell out, whichever comes first. Visit http://www.waneefestival.com for more info. You know you Wanee to go!

Rx #4: Jaimoe's Jasssz is coming to town! (sing it!) You love Jaimoe's subtle jazzy licks intertwining the beat in Allman Brothers Band music. Or you just love Jaimoe! Well, there is one of those occasional appearances of the legendary Jaimoe's Jasssz Band coming up -- December 17 at Bridge Street Live in Collinsville, CT. The awesome lineup includes Jaimoe on Drums, of course!
Dave Stoltz on Bass, Kris Jensen on Sax, Paul Lieberman on Sax, Reggie Pittman on Trumpet, Bruce Katz on Keyboards, and Jr Mack on Guitar and Vocals. Visit http://www.41bridgestreet.com for tickets. And Jaimoe's Jasssz Band is playing quite a few GA shows in January -- visit http://www.jaimoe.com and click Tour Dates for the complete list!

Rx #5: The ABB has teamed up with Entertainment One Distribution to market Peach Records and the Allman Brothers Band Recording Company releases. OK, most of you don't get too excited about which distribution company they are using... but hold on, here's the cool part! There are three re-releases of out of print recordings coming on December 6th... and... <drum roll>... there will be a release coming, in 2012, of the amazing 40th anniversary show held on March 26, 2009 at the Beacon. This show was dedicated to brother Duane and the band played the first two albums straight through in their entirety. OK, I got so excited about that I forgot to mention the re-releases of the out-of-print stuff. Hittin' The Note, the groups first studio recording in years and a killer, is coming back on December 6, along with the live album One Way Out and the gold-certified Live at the Beacon Theatre DVD! These are all Top Shelf recordings! Line up at http://www.hittinthenote.com/cart/c-35-new-stuff.aspx and you'll be able to order these on December 6!

Whew, that's a list and a half... has the Doctor delivered??

In exchange for all that ABB Lovin', we'd like to ask you a favor. Gregg's birthday is coming up and we'd like to show the man some Big Love on his Facebook page. He is doing OK with 34,000 fans registered there, but hey, we think we personally know more of his fans than that :) ! The ABB Facebook page has over 300,000 fans -- something makes me think they are also GA fans! So don't put it off, click http://www.facebook.com/GreggAllman and then click the Like button next to his name at the top of the page. Show GA the love!

And speaking of the love,

Take care and know that YOU are loved,

Rowland and Lana
