Jack Pearson's Birthday Bash at 3rd and Lindsley this year was perhaps the best ever. Jack loves to play (a waitress remarked “he would play all night if we let him”) and nothing makes him happier when his friends turn out to jam with him. This year's friends included Tommy Emmanuel, Shaun Murphy, Moe Denham, Dave Duncan, Ruth Ann Conley (“Sister Ruth”), Tim Gonzales, Lydia Bain as well as his regulars Charles Treadway on the Hammond and Joshua Hunt on drums.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood West Coast Run

Concert Photos Magazine followed the Chris Robinson Brotherhood's Northern California Tour, Starting in Lake Tahoe, at the Infamous Crystal Bay Casino then Sacramento at the Ace of Spades, and finishing at The Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco.
This band is getting hotter by the Minute ! Their sound and vibe brings back memories of Chris's roots music and they brought the houses down one at a time and never failed to give the fans every moment to the fullest. His way of mixing all the genres of music from Psychedelically Infused Gospel to ballads to full out Rock and Roll is danceable and smile inducing, every time.     Suggestion, get out to see them while the intimate venues are still a reality.

You have touched so many lives with your Sunshine.....You have that special gift of not just your amazing music, but the way you truly bring the sunshine to those that come to hear you. Even your fans are called “Sunshiners”. What an incredible journey you are on. Already a star of the Gran Ole Opry, traveling from coast to coast, an accepted equal of the likes of Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn, Marty Stuart, and now the belle of the Cannes Film Festival.

Tedeschi Trucks Band: A Hometown Inaugural Concert Honoring Gregg Allman

May 27, 2017

EverBank Field
Daily's Place Amphitheater

Jacksonville, Florida

“Hello Jacksonville! Are we ready to party?” Jacksonville Jaguars' owner Shad Khan was all smiles introducing hometown darlings, Tedeschi Trucks Band, as they rolled into town on their "Wheels of Soul" 2017 Tour and kicked off the inaugural concert at the new EverBank Field amphitheater, Daily's Place. The beautiful new venue is adjacent to the football stadium and in fact opens right onto it on an upper level. While construction is not quite complete and several finishing touches need to be done, it was certainly ready enough for opening night, and what a night it was. Fronted by husband/wife dynamic duo Derek Trucks (nephew of the late Butch Trucks and 15-year member of The Allman Brothers Band) and Susan Tedeschi, the 12-member ensemble delivered a bittersweet performance as the news of Gregg Allman's passing earlier in the day cast a dark, emotional shadow over the jam band crowd. But hearing TTB open the show with “Ain't Wastin' Time No More,” a song written by Allman and recorded by The Allman Brothers Band shortly after the 1971 passing of his brother, Duane Allman, the fans got their much needed catharsis through the appropriately chosen homage, and a collective weight was somewhat lifted from the atmosphere. The show, as they say, must go on, and indeed it did.

As is befitting to someone who's contribution to the world of music is so great, there will surely be many “tribute Shows” to Gregg Allman in the near future. Jack Pearson turned his regularly scheduled monthly show at 3rd and Lindsley into one when he stepped up to the microphone and dedicated his show to Gregg. The first song, very appropriately, was Jack's “My Old Friend”.

Riverfront Park
Cocoa, Florida

by Michelle Wilson of Rock Legends Photographers

Grand Funk Railroad headlined a picture-perfect Sunday festival at historic Cocoa Village, Florida's Riverfront Park, presented by the Cocoa Rotary Foundation to benefit the Boys and Girls Club. The tunes were cranking, the beer was flowing and the crowd was loving every minute of it. Multiple boats were anchored in the river, taking advantage of the gorgeous weather and the epic music from the iconic band, which still includes founding members Don Brewer (drums/vocals) and Mel Schacher (bass) as well as Max Carl (guitar/harp/vocals, formerly of 38 Special), Bruce Kulick (guitar/vocals, formerly of Kiss) and Tim Cashion (keys/vocals).

Wanee Music Festival 2017 Overview: A Tribute to Butch Trucks

April 21 and 22, 2017

Spirit of the Suwanee Music Park
Live Oak, Florida

by Michelle Wilson of Rock Legends Photographers

The pilgrimage to Wanee Music Festival has become a sacred tradition for thousands of people since the inaugural 2005 event at the Spirit of the Suwanee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida. Founded by Gregg Allman and the late Butch Trucks, fans from ALL walks of life converge on the magical, mystical park and enjoy several days of reefer-hazed, alcohol-soaked friendship, fun and of course, MUSIC. Because music is, unequivocally, the universal language, and the jam-based live entertainment at Wanee was the heart and soul of Butch Trucks. So it was only fitting that the event was a tribute to and celebration of the man, the myth, the legend, Mr. Claude Hudson “Butch” Trucks.
