The Allman Brothers Band was one of the greatest and most influential rock bands of all time. With their blend of rock, blues, jazz, and country their versatility and musicianship has been unmatched. A rock and roll band playing the blues, from a jazz perspective. They are widely accepted as the original southern rock band, creating a template for others to try and follow. Many other southern rock bands such as Charlie Daniels, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, 38 Special et al came along. While very successful and great bands in their own right, The Allman Brothers Band had a special blend all their own.
In the late ‘60s to early ‘70s the Fillmore East in New York was the premier rock concert venue in the US with shows put on by promoter Bill Graham. In a time when such acts as Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, Jefferson Airplane, CSNY, and Led Zeppelin played there, the Allman Brothers were once called “Bill Graham’s house band” because they played there so often. He thought they were the greatest of them all. George Kimball of Rolling Stone magazine hailed them as “the best damn rock and roll band this country has produced in 5 years”. They completed the band's 45-year run with their final shows in Oct 2014 at New York’s Beacon Theatre.
Schroomville - The Allman Brothers Band Tribute was formed to play the tunes of this great band and create a concert experience based on their extensive catalog. From the early days with Gregg Allman on Hammond B3, Duane Allman and Dickey Betts on guitars, through the mid-'70s after Duane and Bassist Barry Oakley died. Adding Chuck Leavell on piano, and continuing to the latter day lineup with Warren Haynes and drummer Butch Trucks' nephew Derek Trucks on guitars until their final shows in 2014.
Schroomville represents the unique musical experience of The Allman Brothers Band. Twin lead guitars, Hammond B3 organ, soulful vocals, and bass and double drummers pumping the groove is what Schroomville is all about as we bring this timeless music to fans all over Texas and beyond for over 10 years!
