LIVE AT THE FILLMORE is the definitive tribute to the original Allman Brothers Band which featured Duane Allman, Dickey Betts and Berry Oakley. It takes its name from what many consider the greatest live album ever made by one of the greatest live bands of all time, At Fillmore East, recorded at Bill Graham's legendary NY rock venue Fillmore East. Rolling Stone magazine listed At Fillmore East as number 49 of the 500 greatest albums of all time and Duane Allman #2 on its 100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time. Lou Maresca, (leader, vocals, slide, lead and acoustic guitar) heard the original Allman Brothers Band countless times in concert in 1970 and 1971 including those legendary Fillmore shows. Early in 1971 he formed quite possibly the very first Allman Brothers Band tribute, Skydog, and returned again in 2008 with LIVE AT THE FILLMORE.
The opening slide guitar lick of 'Statesboro Blues' immediately transports a LIVE AT THE FILLMORE audience back in time to the Fillmore East in 1971 and holds it there for the duration. The classic 'In Memory of Elizabeth Reed', 'Whipping Post' and the entire At Fillmore East album are cornerstones of a LATF show along with songs from the eponymous album The Allman Brothers Band, Idlewild South, Eat A Peach and Brothers And Sisters. Occasionally, songs featuring Duane Allman such as Layla are added. All the elements of blues, jazz, psychedelic and country music incorporated by the principal architects of Southern rock have been preserved along with their jam band-style improvisation while meticulously preserving the original song structures and arrangements. Just as Gregg Allman is quoted as saying of the Allman Brothers Band, rather than being a jam band, LIVE AT THE FILLMORE is a band that jams. Dual lead Les Paul guitars searing through a 'dimed' Marshall amp and vintage 1970's JBL speakers capture all the subtle tonal nuances so familiar to fans of the original band's live concerts and recordings. A 70's style psychedelic liquid light show a la the original Fillmore East's Joshua Light Show and historic photo slide show creates the perfect visual backdrop to bring the spirit of At Fillmore East back to life!
The other current band members of LIVE AT THE FILLMORE are Barron Chandler (acoustic guitar, harmonica, vocals), Rick Baldassari (lead guitar, vocals), Dennis Barth (drums, percussion), John DiGiovanni (drums, percussion), Chip Gaasche (organ, piano) and Dan Haines (bass, vocals).
