Last night two revered jambands joined forces for a spectacular late night jam at Brooklyn Bowl. Many know about The Allman Brothers annual March run of shows at the Beacon Theatre where they play some of their best music. Already 5 nights in they have jammed with the likes of John Popper and played some great covers of John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix.
However, many are unaware that there is another "March Madness" tradition going strong in Brooklyn, where Soulive is in the midst of their 4th annual Bowlive series of shows at Brooklyn Bowl. Two shows in they have already collaborated with Luther Dickinson (of North Mississippi Allstars), Saunders Sermons (of Tedeschi-Trucks Band), as well as John Popper!
Last night Brooklyn Bowlers were treated to a star studded collaboration with Soulive, Lee Fields, and Robert Randolph. The show was opened up by Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds who rock in their own right. What fans did not expect was a special third late night set that went til 2:30AM and would feature none other than Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers. Perhaps those who caught Soulive guitarist, Eric Krasno's cameo at one of the Allman shows earlier this week saw this coming but we did not!
At any rate, enjoy this late night jammed out version of "The Thrill Is Gone." but clearly the thrill was not gone for those at Brooklyn Bowl last night...
