Saturday, June 17 at Vista Room Atlanta- Haraway Brothers Debut Album Release
This Saturday, June 17, the Haraway Brothers will celebrate their debut record “The Haraway Brothers Wish You Love & Luck in the World” at the fantastic, ornate Vista Room in Decatur, GA.
The show starts at 8 PM with a set from the Bradley Cole Smith Band– who is also releasing a new record on Saturday, The Hilltop EP— and then the Haraway Brothers come on at 9 PM, doing every song from the new album plus some Sundogs tunes and some fun choice covers, all backed by Sundog buddies Jon, Benji, KT and Will Groth. By now you’ve had a chance to get familiar with the new songs, so we wanna hear you sing with us!
Gregory Lenoir Allman 1947-2017
We’ve had to write too many of these lately, but few things have hit guys like us harder than the death of Gregg Allman last month. I’m not sure any one of us would be playing music right now if Gregg didn’t exist, but if we were, I know it wouldn’t sound the same. He lived hard and certainly made some large mistakes, but somehow led one of the greatest bands in the history of music through like three separate comebacks, none more impressive than the last. The run of Allman Bros. shows at the Fox (now released as The Fox Box) in September 2004 with Derek, Warren, Susan, etc. is the best I ever saw them and one of the best run of concerts these ears have heard. EVen after the perfect ending of ABB at the Beacon in 2014, Gregg was peaking on his own at the end, with the excellent “All My Friends” tribute from 2014, the “Back to Macon” from 2015 and the upcoming “Southern Blood” recorded at FAME in Muscle Shoals w Don Was. He was buried in that same Rose Hill plot that everyone reading this has likely visited and left guitar picks on, right next to his brother and Berry Oakley. We’ve been doing “Angel Band” for the Colonel lately, and now this one for Gregg. “Will the Circle Be Unbroken”, indeed. What a voice. RIP.
See you on Saturday!
