Singer/songwriter Steve Earle, Gregg Allman Band keyboardist Bruce Katz and The Juke Horns all sat in with The Allman Brothers Band at New York’s Beacon Theatre last night. The evening kicked off the Brothers final week at the Beacon.
The ensemble opened their show with this year’s first “Sailin ‘cross the Devil’s Sea” and offered another take on the new Warren Haynes/Phil Lesh original “Spots Of Time.” Later in the set, Beacon regulars The Juke Horns emerged for “Don’t Keep Me Wondering” and The Band’s “Tears of Rage,” one of several new covers the band introduced this year as a tribute to Levon Helm. Then, Katz joined The Allman Brothers Band and The Juke Horns for a set-closing “The Same Thing.”
The collaborations continued as The Allman Brothers Band
returned for their second set. Earle—a frequent Beacon guest in recent years—and Katz took the stage for Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” and remained for the band’s first take on the Earle original “Copperhead Road.” Earle helped the ABB debut “Knockin On Heaven’s Door” in 2011 and mentioned that he always wanted to play “Copperhead Road” with the Brothers. Katz remained onstage as The Allman Brothers Band charged into “One Way Out.” A bit later, The Juke Horns returned one final time for this year’s first version of Otis Redding’s “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” and another take on the blues classic “To know You Is To Love You.” Before jumping into “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long,” Haynes noted Jaimoe’s time playing with Redding in 1966 and mentioned that the cover was a rarity for the band. Jaimoe handled all of the song’s drum and percussion parts himself during the tune.
The Allman Brothers Band will return to the Beacon this evening.
