Allman Brothers Tribute Band at The Hamilton Dec. 28

The Allman Brothers tribute Band, Live At The Filmore, will perform at The Hamilton on Mon., Dec. 28.

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, Georgia. 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.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $15.00-$23.00.
