Allman Brothers Band

The Allman Brothers Band gave explosive live shows that secured their place in rock and roll history.

As the principal architects of Southern rock, the Allman Brothers Band forged this new musical offshoot from elements of blues, jazz, soul, R&B and rock and roll. Along with the Grateful Dead and Cream, they helped advance rock as a medium for improvisation. Guitarists Duane Allman and Dickey Betts combined with the soulful vocals and organ playing of Gregg Allman and a driving 2 drummer rhythm section to become a blues rocking powerhouse.
