Gregg Allman – All My Friends

Gregg Allman and friends celebrates a musical icon at this all-star performance. “All My Friends: Celebrating the Songs & Voice of Gregg Allman” captures a once-in-a-lifetime performance. While honoring one of the most acclaimed and beloved icons in rock and roll history. As a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band and successful solo artist in his own right. Allman possesses a voice that has resonated through four decades. 

Gregg Allman – Celebration

As well as Robert Randolph, Jimmy Hall, Sam Moore, Keb Mo, Brantley Gilbert, Jess Franklin, Dr. John, Pat Monahan.

The Allman Brothers Band with musical direction by Don Was is shot in high definition with 5:1 Dolby sound. Live at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, this performance pays tribute to a voice that once heard is never forgotten.

The Highlights

Lastly, I have to give credit to Jack Pearson on guitar, Kenny Aronoff on drums, and Chuck Leavell on keyboards. – They brought their “A-game on this night”. My personal favorite performances are Keb Mo’ doing Just Another Rider, Stand Back by Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks. Along with Jackson Browne and Gregg on These Days and Melissa and performances by Warren Haynes.

So, if you’re a Gregg Allman fan, and/or you love Southern rock, boogie and blues, you’re going to love this concert. Filmed and recorded at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, it’s the perfect venue for a show like this.  Gregg Allman is one of the all-time great musicians and storytellers whose songs connected with people.  This amazing night captured on film is available on-line through Amazon and other on-line music retailers.
