Though the actual Allman Brothers have long-since passed on, a lineup consisting of drummer Jaimoe Johanson, guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, bassist Oteil Burbridge, and percussionist Marc Quinones will play the band’s songs in celebration of 50 years of the influential southern rock act. The band is billing themselves as The Brothers, and drummer Duane Trucks (related to founding member Butch and current guitarist Derek) will make that name true. The band will also be joined by pianist Chuck Leavell, who played with original band in the seventies.
“It’s a way of honoring 50 years of the band and honoring Duane, Gregg, Berry and Butch and the music they created,” Warren Haynes said of the reunion in an interview with Rolling Stone. “That music deserves a 50th anniversary celebration. Most rock bands never thought they’d even see their 50th anniversary. And, of course, this one didn’t. So in a way, this brings some sort of closure.”
Haynes, who is known for his own work with Gov’t Mule, said that the group are working hard to whittle down the setlist into just one evening of songs.
“There are so many songs that seem necessary for a one-time show, and it’s going to be impossible to play all of them,” he said. “We’re still in that process. When we would play four nights in one city we could change the set every night to fit in everything.”
