Gregg Allman Guests with Dave Matthews Band
Gregg Allman took the stage with Dave Matthews Band night partway through the groups tour-opening performance at New Yorks Madison Square Garden. Fresh off a 15-night run at New Yorks Beacon Theatre, Allman played guitar and sang with Matthews on his own hit Melissa. Dave Matthews Band has covered the song on occasion since Allman first gusted with the arena-size jamband in Atlantas Piedmont Park in 2007.
Last nights performance also saw the debut of several songs off Dave Matthews Bands forthcoming Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King:
the single Funny the Way It Is, Spaceman and Why I Am. Throughout the night, the core band was also joined onstage by touring members Jeff Coffin, Tim Reynolds and Rashawn Ross. The band will perform in East Rutherford, NJ this evening.
