Les Brers
Les Brers
LES BRERS--the group comprised of key ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND members and associates--has announced a new string of fall concerts. They have only performed a handful of dates in 2016 so far--including two benefit shows in their adopted hometown of Macon, GA and at the ABB's Wanee Festival--and are excited to get back on the road.

The pedigreed group (the name is inspired by the ABB instrumental jam "Les Brers in A-Minor" from the Eat A Peach album) consists of founding ABB drummers BUTCH TRUCKS and JAIMOE, longtime members OTEIL BURBRIDGE (bass) and MARC QUINONES (percussion), former ABB guitarist JACK PEARSON, frequent ABB guest BRUCE KATZ on keyboards, singer LAMAR WILLIAMS JR. (son of the former ABB bassist) joined by guitarist PAT BERGESON (Chet Atkins, Lyle Lovett, Suzy Bogguss).

The new dates begin at the Allman Brothers Band-curated PEACH FESTIVAL August 11 in Scranton, PA and run through mid-September (full itinerary below).

In an April interview with Billboard Magazine's Gary Graff, Butch Trucks said, "Nobody is playing music like this, like the Allman Brothers, and there's still a lot of fans out there, so that's what we're doing with Les Brers. We're taking this stuff and getting loose with it and improvising and really having a good time. And I think once the word gets around there's still a lot of people out there that want to hear this kind of music -- and whether there is or not, we're having a ball playing it, so if we can draw a big crowd that's great, but if we don't we're still gonna play it."

The band will perform an eclectic selection of music familiar to fans of the Allman Brothers Band, whose unique improvisational style, great songwriting and heavy touring made them one of the most acclaimed bands in American rock history. They are members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, earned a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award (plus various other Grammy's) and many Gold and Platinum records.

Check out video of LES BRERS with special guest Warren Haynes at Wanee this past April here. Of the Macon shows, which benefitted the Allman Brothers Band's Big House Museum, Butch Trucks said, "I knew that Les Brers was going to be good but DAMN!!!! We did stuff I wouldn't have believed. So great to really jam and jam with people who have the guts to leap off the cliff and soar with the eagles or, as happened once last night, hit the ground, pick ourselves up and go somewhere we've never been before."
Greg Humphreys Electric Trio
Greg Humphreys Electric Trio
Greg Humphreys Electric Trio celebrates the release of a new single, "Coming To Get You,” from a new album scheduled for a Fall 2018 release.

Music fans are familiar with Humphreys from his years leading North Carolina faves Dillon Fence and Hobex. With songs influenced by the best in pop, funk, soul, R&B, and rock n' roll, you might find Greg Humphreys Electric Trio in the same idiosyncratic corner of the big Americana tent where you'd find Alabama Shakes, Chris Stapleton, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, or the North Mississippi Allstars.

Humphreys formed his Electric Trio in New York City with Drummer Keith Robinson and Bassist Matt Brandau. Robinson brings Texas flavor, having toured and recorded with Marcia Ball and Charlie Robison. Brandau has backed up Elvis Costello and Joan Osborne.

"Humphreys is building his reputation cautiously but deliberately… his good fortune is all but inevitable." — Lee Zimmerman, No Depression

"All of Humphreys’ musical projects have shared some common elements: His distinctive soulful rasp, channeling Sam Cooke by way of Rod Stewart; his tight, imaginative guitar work; and his gift for writing melodic, catchy, deceptively simple tunes." — Eddie Huffman, Winston-Salem Journal

"Lucky Guy, the first release with his Electric Trio, reflects the optimism of a man who’s made the right moves." — David Klein, Indy Week
