Allman Brothers Band - New York, NY - 2006-03-09

Allman Brothers Band, Beacon Theatre, New York, NY, March 9, 2006

So I stayed away from the Allmans for a few years...I was a little sick of the revolving door line-up and especially missed the presence of Warren Haynes. For their annual Beacon run in 2006 a young guy I work with was all riled up to go so I decided to give them another shot.

First off, I heard many of the shows on this run were amazing. I believe it. The night I went was not mind-blowing but there were enough peak moments for me to give them some benefit of the doubt. Three of the five or six highlights for me are included below as MP3s.

I have to admit, it is a load of fun seeing Derek Trucks and Warren on stage together. I just feel like in any other era Warren would be a superstar. He's got a good thing going for himself in terms of freedom to play whatever with whomever but I really think he's a stellar talent.

Download some music and have a good one...
