Photo montage video I put together for “Beijing Blues” the title track of Woodie Alan’s debut CD and the song that really began to turn us into a real band.
“I Don’t Care” at the Xiamen Beach Festival, in front a crowd of 5-6,000. As described in the prologue of Big in China. This multi-camera shoot for and broadcast on Fujian TV.
Original tune “Sri Lankan Sunset” at the Star Live on Beijing Blues tour of China. May 2009. This performance was part of a drummer’s showcase and highlights Lu Wei.
Bob Dylan’s “Meet Me in the Morning” at the JZ Club, Hangzhou, China. This was a memorable gig and we’re happy to have this clip documenting it.
From our one-off reunion gig at the Orchard last Feb. No rehearsals, and no one had seen each other in six or seven months. I’m proud.
Acoustic “Beijing Blues.” The Stone Boat May, 2009. CD release tour.
Bob Dylan’s “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go” at Jianghu Jiuba, Beijing. March 2008, just as we were starting to really gel. We got much better than this, but it captures a moment.
“Will the Circle be Unbroken” from our second night at the Xiamen Beach Festival. Another performance discussed in Big in China. With Dave Loevinger back in Beijing, we performed as a 4-piece. That made us weaker, but we were so much more confident and relaxed.

February and March are looking like exciting times for fans of the Allman Brothers Band. I originally posted all the details of some archival releases to come, but jumped the gun on that, publishing before details were finalized. I removed the information and apologize for any confusion caused. This March will mark the band’s 45th […]
