Band Testimonials

From Gary Niederauer – Brandon on stage with hotlanta last night!

Tad I cannot thank you and your band enough for letting my boy Brandon sit in with you last night. He is still talking and smiling about the experience. He said he felt like he was playing at the beacon with the ABB. All of you were so generous with the stage allowing him to air it out, taking precious time away from both your stellar guitar players. He also said that you guys were so tight that he hoped he stayed in the pocket with you all and did not mess up. This experience will help him grow as a musician. HOTLANTA RULES!!!

Well folks, I just got back from Philadelphia where I went to photograph my child prodigy, musical discovery of 2013, 10 year old Brandon Niederaur, who was asked to sit in by Allman Brothers tribute band Hotlanta at a huge outdoor concert. The kid is pure magic. More photos to follow and a professionally shot video soon! Just wait til my New Orleans musician friends see this guitar hero of the future! www.SidneySmithPhotos.com

Sidney SmithYou WILL hear the music. I shot some video myself AND there was a professional video crew there. You WILL hear the music. Stay tuned!

Members Of The Allman Brothers Band Recall Tragic Death Of Duane Allman

The Allman Brothers Band have weathered a number of storms in their lengthy history as a group, but it was the tragic 1971 death of guitarist Duane Allman in a motorcycle accident that really shook the band at its core and left them wondering how they were going to carry on.

The individual members of the band remember the time period in a new interview with Classic Rock magazine, with drummer Butch Trucks remembering how he had walked out of the hospital “stunned” with the knowledge that Allman, less than a month away from celebrating his 25th birthday, was dead.

“You simply can’t absorb something that overwhelming all at once,” he says. “It took a couple of weeks before I could even accept that he was dead. I mean, I still have dreams 40 years later, that I run into Duane. I’ll be out somewhere and I just run into him. There’s still part of me that hasn’t turned him loose and never will.”

Atlantic Records producer Jerry Wexler gave the eulogy at Allman’s service and reminded all that were in attendance that Duane had left behind a lot to remember in the short time that he was alive. “This young, beautiful man who we love so dearly, but who is not lost to us, because we have his music – and the music is imperishable.”

For Gregg Allman, the loss of Duane was something that he called “a nightmare that I can’t exactly remember.”

Gregg would play a big part in helping the band move forward. “We had a long meeting after everybody got their brains back,” he recalls. “I said that if we didn’t keep playing and recording and traveling, we were going to fall by the wayside and we’d never amount to much at all.”

After a short tour, the band was back in the studio working on the album that would become ‘Eat A Peach.’ One of the first songs that they put down was Gregg’s ‘Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More’ and Allman credits that composition as being the “song that helped me get back on my feet after Duane passed.”

Forty years later, the Allman Brothers Band have been celebrating the legacy of ‘Eat A Peach’ by performing the full album in its entirety, and Gregg says “I think ‘Eat A Peach’ has just the right sequence. I really love the album.” He goes on to say that he considers ‘Peach’ and ‘Live at Fillmore East’ as “the roots of our whole thing as a band.”

The Allman Brothers Band were honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2012 Grammy Awards.

The Allman Brothers Band

The Allman Brothers Band is one of the greatest rock bands of all time. With their blend of rock, blues, jazz, and country their versatility and musicianship has been unmatched. Many other southern rock bands such as Charlie Daniels, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, 38 Special et al came along. While very successful and great bands in their own right, no one equaled the Allman Brothers Band.

In the late ‘60s to early ‘70s the Fillmore East in New York was the premier rock concert venue in the US with shows put on by promoter Bill Graham. In a time when such acts as Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, Jefferson Airplane, CSNY, and Led Zeppelin played there, the Allman Brothers were once called “Bill Graham’s house band” because they played there so often. He thought they were the greatest of all. George Kimball of Rolling Stone magazine hailed them as “the best damn rock and roll band this country has produced in 5 years”. The current lineup has just announced another historic run of shows at New York’s Beacon Theatre.
