Throwback Thursday | Allman Brothers Reunite At Volunteer Jam

Earlier this week The Allman Brothers Band announced what they've dubbed their "final concerts," which are set to take place at the Beacon Theatre in October. The Allmans talk about this year as their 45th anniversary, but there were a few periods in which the band was broken up including from 1982 to 1989. However, they did reunite for a few sets in 1986 and professionally-shot footage of one of those sets has surfaced on YouTube thanks to the Concert Vault Team.

A version of the Allman Brothers Band featuring co-founding members Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Jaimoe and Butch Trucks along with keyboardist Chuck Leavell, bassists Bruce Waibel and Jerry McCoy and guitarist Dan Toler played a seven-song set at Charlie Daniels' Volunteer Jam on July 12, 1986 in Nashville, TN. The group rolls through their most- beloved concert staples including "Statesboro Blues," "Blue Sky," "One Way Out" and "Whipping Post."
