Railroad Earth performed last Memorial Day Weekend at the annual Summer Camp Music Festival in Chillicothe, Illinois. Taking the stage one day after the death of Gregg Allman, the group honored the legendary co-founder of The Allman Brothers Band by covering one of his most well-known songs.

RRE closed their May 28, 2017 Moonshine Stage performance with their first live offering of “Melissa.” The Allman classic recorded for the landmark 1972 ABB album Eat Peach was sung by Railroad Earth guitarist Todd Sheaffer.

With Matt Slocum on keyboards in place of multi-instrumentalist Andy Goessling, watch Railroad Earth performing “Warhead Boogie” into their debut of “Melissa” in the Sumercamp Sessions video below:
