Alan Paul Presents A Tribute To Butch Trucks @ American Beauty NYC
March 1 @ 8:00 pm$20
The best way to celebrate the life of Butch Trucks is through music. The co-founding drummer of the Allman Brothers Band tragically passed away on January 24th, 2017, leaving fans to grieve the loss of a true rock and roll icon. Esteemed journalist and ABB biographer Alan Paul, author of One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band, will host “A Tribute To Butch Trucks” night on Wednesday, March 1st at American Beauty NYC with his Big In China band, welcoming special guests Andy Aledort (Dickey Betts Band), Peter Levin (Gregg Allman Band), Junior Mack (Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band), and more.
The Brandon Niederauer Band will open the night, completing the circle of Allman Brothers Band family and friends. Young “Taz” attended Trucks’ first-ever Roots Rock Revival, a 4-night intensive Music Masters Camp, and has returned every year since. It was there that the nine-year-old played before his idols on stage for the first time, and it was then that he was officially welcomed with open arms. The Trucks-hosted event was also where Niederauer met biographer Alan Paul, and now they will play it forward together.
Proceeds from “A Tribute To Butch Trucks” will be donated to the Allman Brothers Band’s Museum at the The Big House under his name.
