Several members of their various offshoot projects joined The Allman Brothers Band onstage last night at New York’s Beacon Theatre. Partway through the group’s first set, Beacon run staples The Juke Horns returned alongside Warren Haynes Band vocalist Alecia Chakour and Derek Trucks Band drummer Yonrico Scott for a take on The Band’s “It Makes No Difference.” Both Chakour and The Juke Horns joined The Allman Brothers Band for their debut cover of The Band classic last Wednesday. The Juke Horns then remained onstage for the remainder of the set, which included “Who To Believe,” “Don’t Keep Me Wondering” and “Southbound.”

Allman Brothers Band guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks opened the group’s daily acoustic segment with the delta blues song “Death Letter,” which Derek Trucks Band previously recorded. Gregg Allman, Oteil Burbridge and Marc Quiñones then returned to the stage for “Dark End of the Street” and “Come On In My Kitchen.” Finally, Haynes and Trucks brought the segment to a close with a stripped down version of “Back Where I Started” featuring Trucks wife and Tedeschi Trucks Band partner Susan Tedeschi on vocals.

Tedeschi remained onstage as the group plugged and both The Jukes Horns and Scott returned for Etta James’ arrangement of
“I’d Rather Go Blind.” Almost three years to the day since Eric Clapton first joined The Allman Brothers Band onstage, Tedeschi and the group busted into Derek and the Dominos’ “Anyway” before moving into “Statesboro Blues.” Tedeschi and Trucks also regularly play “Anyday” with their own family band.

Elsewhere in the city, The Wood Brothers—another group formed by siblings with roots in the Southeast—headlined New York’s Bowery Ballroom. After Oliver Wood noted that The Allman Band was performing uptown, the group busted into a rare cover of “Midnight Rider.”

The Allman Brothers Band will return to The Beacon this evening. As previously reported, The Allman Brothers Band will tour with Santana this summer.
