An Entertaining Tribute to the Time-honored Music of the Allman Brothers Band Because Sometimes You Feel Like Bustin’ a Nut! The Allmond Brothers is a collective of top shelf Bay Area musicians led by “Trickey Frets,” aka, Jimmy Leslie (Guitar Player Magazine, Shana Morrison, Honey Island Swamp Band, Stung). The Allmonds bust out classic Allman chestnuts such as “Midnight Rider” and “Ramblin’ Man” with technical and tonal precision, and deliver a lively show with amusing anecdotes that transform brilliant musicians into entertaining characters such as Allmond Boy, Greasy Nuts, and Butch Nuts. www.allmondbrothers.com The ABC was born when Leslie produced Guitar Player Presents’ 5th anniversary celebration as a tribute to Duane Allman at San Francisco’s Boom Boom Room. 15 musicians including special guests Luther Dickinson (Black Crowes, North Mississippi Allstars), Marke “Jellyroll” Burgstahler (Gregg Allman & Friends, Alameda Allstars) and James Nash (The Waybacks) played their hearts out to an overjoyed audience that went absolutely nuts. There was too much for love for it not to live on as—The Allmond Brothers Clan! The ensemble played on whenever it was clever with members of Poor Man’s Whiskey, Orgone, ALO, Tracorum, Shantytown, New Monsoon, and the Mother Hips participating either as main performers or featured guests. Highlights of many road conquests were when the Allmond Brothers Clan rocked the High Sierra Music Festival, and the Guitarfish Music Festival. After a hiatus, the ABC re-booted in 2014 when the iconic Allman Brothers Band hung up its boots after 45 years, and Guitar Player Presents celebrated its 10th anniversary back at the Boom Boom Room. A combination of original contributors and fresh faces ignited an audience of guitar players and player lovers. A trip to Lake Tahoe for a Concert on Commons Beach over July 4th weekend 2015 was absolutely epic, and a subsequent City of Brisbane Concert in the Park nearly brought down San Bruno Mountain!
