Allman Brothers Band drummer Butch Trucks will revive his Moogis webcasting service this summer. Moogis has been inactive since financial troubles prevented the company from webcasting The Allman Brothers Band’s 2011 Wanee Music Festival.
Moogis will now officially return for The Allman Brothers Band’s The First Annual Peach Music Festival, which is slated to take place in Montage Mountain, PA on August 10 and 11. The webcast will be free and Moogis will present an encore presentation of this show a few weeks later.
The site’s founders have also commented on 2011 subscribers whose service was cut short when Moogis went offline. A message reads:
In 2011, Moogis had hoped to stream that year’s Wanee Music Festival. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to make that happen. But because of our involvement in this year’s Peach Music Festival, we are able to allow those who had subscribed to Moogis for the 2011 Wanee Festival to receive access to the Moogis Archives until March 1, 2013 at no charge.
These archives date back to the 2009 Beacon Run which was the Allman Brotheers Band’s 40th Anniversary featuring incredible guest artists. 2010 Archives feature the ABB at The United Palace in NYC for 8 shows. Also, included is The Wanee Music Festival from that year featuring performances by Stephen Stills, Dr. John, Bob Weir and many, many more. 2011’s archives include ABB’s Beacon Run. 2012’s Archives will include the Peach Music Festival and may include some material not included on the live stream.
Fans can also purchase a pass to watch the Moogis archives that will be good until March 1, 2013. Passes will cost $50.
