After learning that Gregg Allman would be taking time off from the road to due "serious health issues," The Peach Festival was unfortunately forced to cancel the highly anticipated Gregg Allman Incident scheduled for this weekend.  Fortunately, adjustments were quickly made to arrange The Allman Brothers Family Incident, which occurred during the first of two sets from The String Cheese Incident on Friday night.  Throughout the set, the band welcomed former Allman Brothers' drummers Butch Trucks and Jaimoe, bassist Oteil Burbridge, percussionist Marc Quiñones, and guitarist Jack Pearson.

The set kicked off with "Statesboro Blues," and was followed by ABB hits such as "Midnight Rider," "Melissa," "Ain't Wastin' Time No More," Bob Dylan's "Quinn The Eskimo," and an lengthy jam on "Jessica" > "Drums" > "Jessica."  Video footage from "Jessica," Trouble No More," and "Ain't Wastin' Time No More" can be watched below, and a complete setlist from Friday nights show can also be found.
