Watch ‘The Allman Brothers’ Family Incident’ Perform A 17+ Minute ‘Jessica’ At Peach Fest [HD Video]

first_imgOn Friday night, the wonderful worlds of The Allman Brothers Band and The String Cheese Incident collided into an epic set of southern rock ballads. “The Allman Brothers’ Family Incident” came together at the very last minute, when Gregg Allman had to cancel his co-headlining set with the band, and members of Les Brers stepped in.The 2016 incarnation of the Allman Brothers Band, touring as Les Brers, includes founding members Jaimoe and Butch Trucks on drums, recent bassist Oteil Burbridge (Dead & Co.) and percussionist Marc Quiñones, and slide guitarist Jack Pearson (from 1997-99). In addition to these mushroom-official members, are vocalist Lamar Williams Jr. (son of bassist Lamar Williams who played in ABB after Berry Oakley) and keyboardist Bruce Katz, known as a regular member of Gregg Allman and Friends, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band, and a frequent collaborator with ABB — making him the perfect fit for the B3 seat. In addition to these seven members of Les Brers, guitarist Scott Sharrard stepped in to help SCI perform the ever-expansive catalogue of the Allman Brothers Band, and has been assisting in the learning process over the past several weeks leading up to the epic tribute performance.The music of the Allman Brothers was both respected and enjoyed in a professional manner. The bluegrass-infused touch of the Cheese on an already southern book of songs made for a perfect cocktail to fans of either. The energy was at an all time high, with gratitude that the Peach Festival was able to pull off such a stellar replacement for Allman.Thanks to Rock, Roots, & Blues – Live! we can enjoy these high-definition videos below:Jessica w/ Butch Trucks, Oteil Burbridge, Jack Pearson, Bruce KatzTrouble No More w/ Jaimoe, Lamar Williams Jr., Bruce KatzAin’t Wastin’ Time No More w/ Butch Trucks, Oteil Burbridge, Jack Pearson, Bruce Katz Midnight RiderThe Allman Brothers’ Family Incident @ Peach Music Festival 8/12/16:Statesboro Blues w/ JaimoeMidnight Rider w/ Jaimoe, Marc QuiñonesTrouble No More w/ Jaimoe, Lamar Williams Jr., Bruce KatzSweet Melissa w/ Bruce KatzOutside And Inside w/ Marc QuiñonesAin’t Wastin’ Time No More w/ Butch Trucks, Oteil Burbridge, Jack Pearson, Bruce KatzQuinn The Eskimo w/ Butch Trucks, Jack Pearson, Bruce KatzJessica w/ Butch Trucks, Oteil Burbridge, Jack Pearson, Bruce Katzlast_img read more
