The Allman Brothers Band are currently near the end of their annual "March Madness" concerts at New York's Beacon Theater. When their 13 concert stand (March 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 20, 21, 22, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30) is over, the Allmans will have an unprecedented 126 sold out shows at the Beacon stretching back to 1989.
The Allman Brothers Band are out promoting their debut album (Hittin' The Note") on their own
label Peach, distributed by Sanctuary. It also marks their first new studio release in nine years and features the current band for the first time in a studio. The current band consists of
Gregg Allman, vocals, Hammond B-3 organ; Butch Trucks, drums and tympani; Jaimoe, drums; Warren Haynes, vocals, lead and slide guitar; Marc Quinones, congas and percussion; Oteil Burbridge, bass; and Derek Trucks, lead and slide guitar).
The Upper West Side of New York neighborhood really takes to the Allman Brothers. One local pub, a block away from the Beacon Theater on Broadway, even utilizes an atomic clock every year and counts down in days, hours, minutes and seconds until the ABB takes the Beacon stage for its March Madness.
