Southern rock legend Gregg Allman will be bringing his solo band to The Newport Yachting Center on Sunday, Aug. 10 for a performance along with Jaimoeâ€™s Jasssz Band. Allman, whose well documented, 45-year career with the Allman Brothers Band is coming to a close this fall, will be mixing in ABB classics along with songs from his various recordings with The Gregg Allman Band.
Timeout caught up with him via email last week.
TO: The Allman Brothers Band played quite an inspired set during the Newport Folk Festival in 2007. Any thoughts or memories of playing gigs or just hanging out in Newport?
GA: You know what I remember from that gig? The spectacular view from the stage. I could look out over the crowd and see all these sail boats anchored in this beautiful harbor, with the folks on them just rocking out. The water was this gorgeous blue color; it was really something else, man!
