More Guests Join The Allman Brothers Band in Boston

The Allman Brothers Band closed their two-night run at Boston, MA’s Bank of America Pavilion last night. Much like Tuesday’s show, several guests sat in with The Allman Brothers Band during their two-set show. Near the end of their first set, Miles Davis saxophonist Bill Evans sat in on “Hot’ Lanta.” He remained onstage as percussionist Eguie Castrillo emerged for “Southbound.” Then, during their second set harp player James Montgomery sat in on “Statesboro Blues.” Evans returned at the end of The Allman Brothers Band’s second set for the end of “Mountain Jam,” the song which bookended the band’s set. Also of note, The Allmans busted out “Blue Sky” for the first time this summer. Warren Haynes handled lead vocals on the Dickey Betts classic (Gregg Allman has song the number most of the times the ABB have played the song since Betts parted ways with the band.)

The Allman Brothers Band will host their first Peach Music Festival this weekend.

Glad Warren does the vocal on BLUE SKY. Gregg screws it up when he sings it. Give Dickey his do, it is one of the ABB’s best songs. The live version from the archival ABB release “Live at Stonybrook N.Y. 9/19/71” featuring Duane and Dickey is the definitive version.
