"Brothers and Sister" is a premier tribute to the Allman Brothers Band which focuses on Duane-area performances, esp. "At Fillmore East.” Since forming in 2013, they have played to capacity crowds in venues and festivals as diverse as Oregon Country Fair, to Crystal Ballroom, to Terrapin Crossroads (on invitation from Phil Lesh).

Biography

No college bar cover band-come-lately, Brothers and Sister have studied the music of the Allman Brothers Band intensely, finding ways to capture the sound, style and feel of the original "At Fillmore East" concert while allowing for their own individual spirit and joy to shine through. They perform the music with haunting detail, to create an incendiary and heart-felt evening that would gratify even the Allmans themselves.

Leading the dual-charge of guitars are beloved axe-slingers Lewi Longmire (AgesandAges, Denver, Fernando) and Anita Lee Elliott (Viva Voce, Blue Giant, Calico Rose). The demanding rhythm section features Matt Cadenelli (Don of Division, Fernando), Jimi Bott (The Fabulous Thunderbirds), and bassist Tim Huggins (James Low Western Front, Maria the Mexican). Keyboardist extraordinaire Steve Kerin (Too Loose Cajun and Zydeco Band, Atomic Gumbo) completes the original sextet. As a bonus, vocalist Kris Stuart (Root Jack) and harmonica ace David Lipkind (Woodbrain, I Can Lick Any SOB in the House) is brought in help fill in the guest harp from the Fillmore concert.

Set List

Brothers and Sister focuses on music from the live Allman Brothers Band album, "At Fillmore East," but has nearly 4 hours of Allman Brothers Band songs that span their career.
