Allman Brothers Band Bid Farewell with Final Concert

One of music’s greatest acts, The Allman Brothers Band, took their final bow this week, closing out their illustrious career at New York City’s Beacon Theater- a venue the band has sold out over 200 times.  This final performance brought an end to an astounding 45 year career which includes several platinum and gold selling albums, a Grammy Award under the “Best Rock Instrumental Performance” for the single “Jessica”, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and a much deserved induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  The Allman Brothers Band has also released countless top charting singles, including the hits “Good Clean Fun,” “Ramblin’ Man,” “Straight From the Heart,” “End of the Line,” and countless others.  Fan filmed footage from the final concert can be viewed below.

For the majority of The Allman Brothers Band tenure, Pearl Artist, Marc Quinones has played an integral role in the band’s must-see concert experience, holding down and owning the percussion responsibilities for the last 23 years of the band’s career.  For this past Tuesday’s final performance, Marc and the Allman Brothers Band performed three sets in four hours, which included 24 fan-favorite songs and an encore of the singles, “Whipping Post” and “Trouble No More”.  As he has throughout his time with the Allman Brother Band, Marc Quinones relied on his go-to Bobby Allende Signature Series Congas and Bongos, along with his own Marc Quinones Signature Series Timbales.  More information on Marc Quinones can be found here.
