Gregg Allman will always be one of the Giants of American Music. His passing leaves a hole in our Music and our hearts. Yet in paying tribute to him by performing his music we keep his memory alive. Recently the Midnight Riders and the Channel Cats performed to a sold out show at Nashville's 3rd and Lindsley in memoriam to Gregg.

Sean Chambers Rocks The House in South Florida

June 17, 2017


Terra Fermata
Stuart, Florida

by Michelle Wilson of Rock Legends Photographers

Sean Chambers is one of today's most talented bluesmen on the music scene, and he is the real deal. Co-mingling his original compositions with covers from classic blues icons, Chambers' deep, gravelly tones and smooth, tasteful guitar licks offer one hell of a killer live show. The Florida native has been influenced by and compared to everyone from Stevie Ray Vaughan to Gary Moore, and he lives up to those comparisons. Chambers and the band took the stage at 7:10pm on a sweltering night in South Florida, and the only thing hotter than the weather was the music. Backed by an incredibly tight band of seasoned pros including bassist Todd Cook, keys/Hammond B3 player Michael "The Professor" Hensley and former drummer Paul Broderick sitting in for current drummer Kris Schnebelen, the house was indeed a-rockin' at Terra Fermata for two blistering sets of bad-ass blues. See the end of this article for links to the full set of photos from Rock Legends Photographers and live footage from this show, as well as a link to my Ink 19 review of Chambers' latest release, Trouble & Whiskey, which is currently #7 on the Living Blues charts and a must-have for every blues fan.

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

by Michelle Wilson of Rock Legends Photographers

“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.
