Both Atlanta-based legends and fresh, inspired faces will share the stage to perform tunes by The Allman Brothers Band and other Atlanta artists. AM 1690 The Voice of the Arts presents this one-night-only, all-star concert celebrating the release of One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band.
The book chronicles the rise of the legendary Georgia group. Part of the Allman’s story involved its fabled late-1960s performances at Piedmont Park. More than 40 years later, AM 1690 and Eddie’s Attic reunite many of the musicians who rocked that scene, along with other Atlanta musical luminaries who followed. Expect oodles of special guests, including key members of The Hampton Grease Band, as well as Atlanta luminaries Bill Sheffield, Barry Richman, The Swimming Pool Qs, Lamar Williams Jr., son of te late Allman Brothers Band bassist, and many others. Lots of surprises in store for you.
Alan Paul will be on hand to sign copies of the book. A night to remember that’s not to be missed..
