ALO Liberates Jack Johnson
On Saturday ALO closed out its summer long shed tour with former college classmate Jack Johnson. In addition to offering an opening set with ALO, keyboardist Zach Gill pulled double duty playing piano and accordion as part of Johnsons newly expanded band. Each night the longtime friends also collaborated, with Johnson regularly joining ALO onstage for its own Girl I Want to Lay You Down. As Gill discusses in a recent Jambands.com interview, Johnson also appears on the recorded version of the song featured on ALOs Fly Between Falls. ALOs Dan Lebowitz also made a series of guest appearances with Johnson onstage playing guitar, lap steel and percussion most regularly on Constellations, Breakdown and Rodeo Clowns. ALO performs next at Solana Beach, CAs Belly Up Tavern on October 7 while Johnson is off the road until Vegoose.
