LIVE AT THE FILLMORE
Thursday, March 10 at 8 p.m. — KILLINGTON — Live at the Fillmore, the definitive tribute to the Allman Brothers Band, will perform at the Pickle Barrel Nightclub on Thursday, March 10 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance and $120 at the door. The venue is at 1741 Killington Road, Killington. For more information call 802-422-3035 or visit www.picklebarrelnightclub.com.
This Philly-based septet includes: Lou Maresca, guitars and vocals; Barron Chandler, acoustic guitars, harmonica and vocals; Rick Baldassari, guitar and vocals; Jeff Quattro, organ, piano and vocals; Mike Mahomet, bass guitar; Dennis Barth, drums and percussion; and Don McCormick, drums and percussion.
Founding member Lou Maresca was in the audience on June 26, 1971, at the Fillmore East for the Saturday night late show, the last public concert at Fillmore East, the one the ABB band calls “The Show,” the one they feel is the greatest performance they ever gave. He says, “I’ve never heard them or any other band give a better performance before or since. Sadly, the next time I heard the band was a few months later at New York’s Academy of Music. It was without its leader, Duane Allman, who had died only weeks before in a motorcycle accident near his home in Macon, Ga. His guitar was onstage on a stand and it was the most solemn rock concert I have ever attended. I had already formed Skydog, what may have been the very first Allman Brothers tribute band earlier that year. These shows left an indelible impression on me and others in Live at the Fillmore.”
Live at the Fillmore is devoted to performing the music of the original Allman Brothers Band as it was in the early years before the untimely deaths of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley and the departure of Dickey Betts. The band strives to authentically bring back the performances of the original Allman Brothers Band for those who were there to hear it the first time around and for those who love the music but are too young to have seen the band in its original incarnation. They continue to build a larger and loyal audience on the Eastern seaboard as the word of mouth buzz is generated from their blazing live performances.
