The Allman Brothers Band Announce Farewell Residency

One of music’s greatest Southern rock bands, The Allman Brothers Band, are giving fans a final chance to witness their spectacular live show for one last time, announcing their farewell run of shows which will take place this fall.  The legendary Georgia outfit, who confirmed back in January that they were retiring from the live stage, will say goodbye with a six-night residency at their second home, New York’s Beacon Theatre, a venue they have played an astonishing 232 times since 1989.  Fans lucky enough to catch one of the Allman Brothers Band’s recent 2014 performances enjoyed a career-spanning, hit-heavy set which included, “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More,” and “End Of The Line”, along with, fan favorites, “Midnight Rider,” and “Les Brers In A Minor” as well as covers of Otis Redding’s “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long,” Blind Willie McTell’s “Statesboro Blues” and T-Bone Walker’s “Stormy Monday.”

For Pearl Percussion Artist, Marc Quinones, this 6-date residency at the Beacon Theater will stand as the final shows of his 23-year tenure with The Allman Brothers Band.  Playing alongside drummers Butch Trucks and Jai Johanny “Jaimoe” Johanson, Marc Quinones became known for enriching both drummers’ meticulous time-keeping, while adding a brilliant flair to the band’s iconic sound and establishing complex rhythms that comingle with the world renowned guitar-work.   Throughout this final stand at the Beacon Theater, Marc Quinones will rely on his preferred 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.
