With the exception of Derek Trucks, virtually every member of the Allman Brothers Band attended theWanee Music Festival this weekend in Live Oak, FL. After a killer Widespread Panic show, which included a sit-in from Warren Haynes, attendees made their way to the Mushroom Stage for some after-midnight Allman Brothers jams by the new supergroup Les Brers.
Named after the second track from the famed 1972 Eat A Peach album, Les Brers is a continuation of the Allman Brothers Band, but with a freshly revitalized approach. The group’s roots run extremely deep in Allman Brothers blood, with over half of them being members of the since-retired, forty-seven-year-old southern rock band.
Perhaps one of the best sets to come out of the weekend, Les Brers showed Wanee’s Mushroom Stage that the road indeed goes on forever.
The set lasted nearly three hours and included ABB classics “Dreams,” “Jessica,” “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed,” and “Whipping Post,” along with non-traditional, jammed-out renditions of Dr. John‘s “Gilded Splinters,” and Willie Dixon‘s “The Same Thing,” which featured a very special guest appearance from former Allman guitarist Warren Haynes.
Watch “The Same Thing,” featuring Warren Haynes below:
