The Allman Brothers Band 40th Anniversary Beacon Run

The Allman Brothers Band just finished up night 2 of their 2009 Beacon Theatre Run. This year's theme is "In Memory of Duane Allman" and the guests will all relate to Duane is some way. They may have been musicians who influenced him, who recorded/played with him or who were influenced by him. So far guests have been Taj Mahal, Levon Helm, Johnny Winter and Los Lobos. Rumour has it members of The Dead and Eric Clapton will be stopping by as well.

Here is a spirited rendition of The Band's "The Weight" featuring Levon Helm and Taj Mahal from night 1 of the run.
