“This band is based around our shared love of the Allman Brothers Band and our friendships with one another,” says guitarist Alan Paul. “It’s not just a gig. The music is holy to us, but it’s also alive. We honor our friends and mentors’ legacies by investing this great music with life, heart and passion. It’s not about copying solos, which would be completely against the spirit the Allman Brothers had from the day Duane Allman formed the band in 1969.”
The Friends of the Brothers is a celebration of the music of the Allman Brothers Band, with members closely associated with the original band and continuing the brotherhood with passion, committed to the ideals of every night being special and unique.
The group members’ first-hand experience with the Allman Brothers Band and their deep knowledge of the repertoire and the music’s roots and heritage allows them to play with an unrivaled depth. They perform songs from every stage of the Allman Brothers Band’s career, backed by a band of inspirational, veteran players.
