Steve Winwood Sits in with The Allman Brothers Band

The Allman Brothers Band hosted a two-night run at Raleigh, NC’s Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion at Walnut Creek this weekend. Steve Winwood opened both shows and also joined The Allman Brothers Band during their headlining sets. The shows closed out Winwood’s stretch of shows with the seminal jamband.

The sit ins started partway through The Allman Brothers Band’s show on Friday when Steve Winwood’s band members Richard Daily (drums) and Paul Booth (saxophone) sat in “Feel Like Breaking up Somebody’s Home.” A few songs later, Winwood himself joined The Allman Brothers for one of their new covers, Wilson Pickett’s “I Found a Love,” and this tour’s most popular collaboration, The Band’s “The Weight.” At the end of the night, Winwood band members Edson “Café” da Silva (percussion) and Jose Neto (guitar) emerged for a set-closing cover of “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed.”

The collaborations continued last night. Halfway through the set, the Brothers invited both Daily and Booth out for another version of “Feel Like Breaking up Somebody’s Home.” After a take on the revived “Blue Sky,” Winwood returned for “The Weight.” Finally, Neto and da Silva joined The Allman Brothers for a cover of the blues classic “Good Morning Little School Girl.”

The Allman Brothers Band’s summer tour will continue at Alpharetta, GA’s Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre on Monday.
