It goes without saying that 2017 has been a particularly devastating year for the Allman Brothers Band, their extended family, and fans of all ages. With the tragic loss of founding members Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks, as well as Col. Bruce Hampton, this band's impact on American music has been felt now more than ever. With that being said, and as The Vintage Concert Series at Montgomery's Capri Theatre begins to take form, we feel that this is the perfect time to honor the legacy and timeless catalog of The Allman Brothers Band with our next show.

On Thursday, January 11th, Live & Listen is proud to present Eat A Peach: A Tribute To The Allman Brothers Band at the Capri Theatre. Featuring multiple members of Black Jacket Symphony, Eat A Peach brings a high-energy, authentic approach to their tribute, which will undoubtedly make for a night to remember in Old Cloverdale. Tickets to this show will go on sale on Friday, December 1st, and with only 200 total seats at this intimate venue, we strongly suggest purchasing your tickets in advance. See below for the band's official bio, as well as video footage of "Ain't My Cross To Bear" and "Southbound."

Eat A Peach: Official Bio
-
Eat A Peach consists of five guys from Birmingham that share a mutual respect for the Allman Brothers music. With Will Cash on guitar, Matt Casey on guitar, Peyton Grant on keys, Mark Lanter on drums, and Aaron Branson on bass, what was once just an idea in high school came to life in the summer of 2008. All the members found their way back to Birmingham and back out on the music scene again.
-
After a lot of rehearsing and learning tunes, the boys were ready to take the classic songs to the stage. With a great deal of local success, the band decided to hit the road playing college towns, private events, and festivals. Keep your eyes peeled for Eat A Peach in a town near you! Anyone who is a fan of the Allman Brothers Band is sure to have a great time at an Eat A Peach show.

Gregg Allman Cancels All Scheduled Dates Through January November 09, 2016 10:17

As a result of continued health issues, Gregg Allman has announced that he is cancelling all scheduled performances through January of 2017. In a statement on his website Allman says:

“This is the hardest thing I’ve had to do in a long, long, time. I’ve been on the road for 45 years because I live to play music with my friends for my fans. As much as I hate it, it’s time for me to take some real time off to heal.

“Not making a show is a really hard decision for me because I want to play so bad, but it’s also hard on my partners and fans who make plans to be with me. I never want to put anybody in a bad spot. I’m so grateful for the people that I work with and for the fans that come to my shows and I want to be at my best for all of them. That means I’m going to have to wait until I’m feeling really good, not just good enough like I have been. Good enough isn’t working for us all.”
