Bill Evans, Sudan Tedeschi, Scott Sharrard, Berry Oakley Jr. and several other guests joined The Allman Brothers Band at New York’s Beacon Theater last night. The performance kicked off The Allman Brothers Band’s final weekend of their annual Beacon residency.
The band’s first set included this year’s first take on “Gambler’s Roll.” Saxophonist Bill Evans also joined The Allman Brothers Band for their new original song “Dusk Till Dawn.” The real parade of guests started during the band’s second set, however. After the band opened their set up with this year’s first take on Neil Young’s “Needle And The Damage Done,” Gregg Allman Band guitarist Scott Sharrard took the stage for “Who’s Been Talking.” Later, Berry Oakley Jr.—whose father co-founded The Allman Brothers Band—sat in on “Trouble No More,” while guitarist Jeff Golub appeared on “Feel Like Breakin’ Up Somebody’s Home.” Evans also returned to play on “Dreams.”
At the end of the show, Sharrard, Golub and Oakley all returned during the band’s “One Way Out” encore. Susan Tedeschi also surprised fans by making her first 2013 appearance with The Allman Brothers Band by playing timbales on the tune.
The Allman Brothers Band will return to the Beacon this evening.
