Guests Join the Allman Brothers on Saturday at Wanee

The Wanee Festival continued on Saturday with performances by The Allman Brothers Band, Furthur, Gov’t Mule, North Mississippi Allstars, EOTO, Trigger Hippy, Jaimoe’s Jassz Band and more.

Numerous guests joined in throughout the Allman Brothers’ performance, which kicked off shortly after 9:30PM on the festival’s Peach Stage. Early in the set, Luther Dickinson of North Mississippi Allstars sat in on a cover of Dr. John’s “Walk on Gilded Splinters” (watch in the video below), while a few songs later Jaimoe’s Jassz Band trumpeter Reggie Pittman helped out on “All Along the Watchtower.” Elsewhere in the set, Wet Willie harmonica player and vocalist Jimmy Hall—who played alongside Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks, and Chuck Leavell in BHLT—joined in on a trio of blues classics, “She Caught the Katy,” “Statesboro Blues,” and “Smokestack Lightning.” Jaimoe’s Jassz Band guitarist Junior Mack also guested on “You Don’t Love Me.” For the encore, the group performed a cover of Neil Young’s “The Needle and the Damage Done,” before inviting up a series of guests, including Jackie Greene, up for “Southbound.”

Why don’t you guys have people on site at festivals? If you are going to try and report on shows it would be nice if the reviews were true and accurate. Yes Bruce Katz was on the keys all night, but what about Kofi? For the second night in a row, Gregg could not play (why has this not been mentioned) and Kofi fille din on Saturday for almost the entire show. IT WAS HOTTT!!!! Gregg left 3 songs in after a smoking Walk on Gilded Splinters, and Kofi was then in for the rest of the night. BUTTTTT the ultimate moment of the night was Needle and the Damage Done. Gregg came out after his long absence, and it was truely one of the most touching moments I have ever seen at a show.

^^^^Seriously^^^^^ The festival did not continue with a performance by Mule… They got rained out a couple songs in and nobody bothered to tell the fans what was going on. But I would not say that Mule played Wanee this year.

So Gregg only played on 3 songs from the main set? This has been a sad year for the ABB and it’s all been very low key.
