Allmost Brothers came together for their first show in 2017 shortly after the passing of Butch Trucks and Gregg Allman, founding member of the Allman Brothers Band. What was supposed to be a one time Allman Brothers tribute has turned into one of BC 's most exciting tribute bands. Allmost Brothers have continued to play shows and festivals digging deeper into Allman Brothers related material including songs from Dereck and the Dominos,Tedeschi Trucks and more while selling out local venues.
Allmost Brothers pride themselves on delivering classic songs like Ramblin Man, Jessica, One Way Out and Whipping Post with passion and energy that really connects with audiences of all ages. You don't need to be an Allman Brothers fan to love this band and the music they play. You might even hear the odd original song thrown in the mix as well as teases of songs from other iconic artists like Jeff Beck, Jackson Brown, and James Taylor.
Todd Taylor and Johannes Grammes are two of the best guitar players Canada has to offer. The bands rhythm section often includes two drummers and a percussion player to really give them an authentic sound. Don't miss this amazing act coming to a town near you.
The Allman Brothers Band was an American rock band formed in Jacksonville, Florida in 1969 by brothers Duane Allman(founder, slide guitar and lead guitar) and Gregg Allman (vocals, keyboards, songwriting), as well as Dickey Betts (lead guitar, vocals, songwriting), Berry Oakley (bass), Butch Trucks (drums), and Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson (drums). Subsequently based in Macon, Georgia, they incorporated elements of blues, jazz, and country music, and their live shows featured jam band-style improvisation and instrumentals.
Their first two studio releases, The Allman Brothers Band (1969) and Idlewild South (1970) (both released by Capricorn Records), stalled commercially, but their 1971 live release At Fillmore East was an artistic and commercial breakthrough. It features extended versions of their songs "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" and "Whipping Post", and is considered among the best live albums ever made.
Group leader Duane Allman was killed in a motorcycle accident later that year – on October 29, 1971 – and the band dedicated Eat a Peach (1972) to his memory, a dual studio/live album that cemented the band's popularity and featured Gregg Allman's "Melissa" and Dickey Betts's "Blue Sky". Following the motorcycling death of bassist Berry Oakley one year and 13 days later on November 11, 1972, the group recruited keyboardist Chuck Leavell and bassist Lamar Williams for 1973's Brothers and Sisters. The album included Betts's hit single "Ramblin' Man" and instrumental "Jessica", which went on to become classic rock radio staples and placed the group at the forefront of 1970s rock music. Internal turmoil overtook them soon after; the group dissolved in 1976, reformed briefly at the end of the decade with additional personnel changes, and dissolved again in 1982.
The band re-formed once more in 1989, releasing a string of new albums and touring heavily. A series of personnel changes in the late 1990s was capped by the departure of Betts. The group found stability during the 2000s with bassist Oteil Burbridge and guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks (the nephew of their original drummer) and became renowned for their month-long string of shows at New York City's Beacon Theatre each spring. The band retired for good in October 2014 after their final show at the Beacon Theatre.
Butch Trucks died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on January 24, 2017 in West Palm Beach, Florida at the age of 69. Gregg Allman died from complications arising from liver cancer on May 27, 2017 at his home in Georgia, also at 69. The band was awarded seven gold and four platinum albums, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995. Rolling Stoneranked them 52nd on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time in 2004.
