Warren Haynes Revisits RatDog, Roy Haynes Shares the Stage with the Allmans
RatDogs August run with the Allman Brothers Band continued last night at Wantagh, NYs Jones Beach Amphitheatre. Recalling their early summer shows together, Warren Haynes emerged during RatDogs opening set to play on both New Speedway Boogie and Mississippi Half-Step. A bit later, the Allman Brothers Band returned the favor by inviting out RatDog guitarist Mark Karan for a familiar number, Good Morning Little Schoolgirl. Soon after, legendary jazz drummer Roy Haynes took the stage with the Allman Brothers Band for the second time at Jones Beach for an extended drum segment that morphed into Afro Blue. In addition to Haynes, the latter number also featured guest appearances by RatDog saxophonist Kenny Brooks and keyboardist Jeff Chimenti.
The Allman Brothers Band and RatDog will share the stage once again at Holmdel, NJs PNC Arts Center this Friday. For more on both groups, please read our recent site interview Bob Weir.
