G. Love Guests with the Allman Brothers Band
The Allman Brothers Band closed a three-night run at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre last night. Near the end of its first set, the group brought out G. Love to play harmonica on “You Don’t Love Me.” The song also featured noted studio musician Egvie Castrillo on percussion. G. Love, who currently lives in Boston, was invited to the show as a guest of Warren Haynes.
In addition, area-resident—and Gregg Allman & Friends keyboardist—Bruce Katz sat in on a few songs Saturday night, including “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” “That’s What Love Will Make You Do,” “Midnight Rider” and “Key To The Highway.” Katz sat in Friday night as well on “Jessica,” “Desdemona,” “The Same Thing” and “Southbound.” Jr. Mack, a member of Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band, also appeared on ““That’s What Love Will Make You Do” Saturday.
The Allman Brothers Band will perform at New York’s Roseland Ballroom Monday night as part of the Another One for Woody benefit. The band is also expected to announce its 2011 Beacon run during a press conference earlier in the day.
