NYC's Bowery Ballroom to host the annual Allmans Night Off Jam
The luck of the Irish, coinciding with the Allman Brothers' yearly March Madness, has inspired a special evening of music at NYC's Bowery Ballroom on St. Patrick's Day, Sunday, March 17th.
With the Allman Brothers Band having a night off from their epic Beacon Theatre run, the ever-busy Oteil Burbridge (ARU, Gov't Mule, Vida Blue, Allmans) will bring his bass over to the Bowery Ballroom to join Jason Crosby & Friends. This gathering will also feature Jeff Sipe (ARU), Richie Cannata (Beach Boys, Billy Joel), Walter King (B.B.'s nephew on flute, saxophone) and, as always, possible guests! Last year's Jason Crosby & Friends show saw the stage quickly immersed with some of the nation's finest musicians — many of whom have since achieved national popularity with their own bands — and this year's Bowery Ballroom show promises to be even better. Not to mention the fact that it's being held in one of the finest music venues in New York, and this beautiful stage is theirs to create an evening of music and magic.
Also on the bill for this special event is the fast-rising David Kolker Band. After turning heads at shows with Robert Randolph, Railroad Earth, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Next Tribe, this group has subsequently sold out headlining spots at NYC's Mercury Lounge and Knitting Factory. The fountain of sounds and tones that pour from David Kolker's stratocaster, and the overall energy of his fine band, has generated a lot of excitement.
The David Kolker Band will start the evening with a set at 8pm. With all of these players in one room at one time, the possibilities are absolutely endless. But expect a truckload of music!
