[UPDATE 1/18/21]: More problems, the brand new Allman Brothers Group tribute act, announced a second concert at New York’s beacon theater on Saturday, March 26 after the band’s first show sold out on Friday, March 25.
The initial, one-off performance of Trouble No More on 3/25 was intended as a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Allmans’ beloved 1972 album, Eat a peach. The new date of Saturday March 26 adds an extra layer of historical significance to the proceedings: On March 26, 1969, 53 years to the day before the Saturday show, a still-unnamed six-piece band opened their very first rehearsal with a blanket of muddy waters‘ “More problems”. This group would soon become known as the Allman Brothers Band.
On October 28, 2014, several decades and evolutions later, the Allman Brothers Band played their final gig at New York’s beacon theater, a place that has long been the group’s home base. After final farewells and speeches, the band closed the show with one last song, the same one they started with in 1969: “Trouble No More”.
The new Trouble No More set due to appear at The Beacon in March 2022 will continue this ever-expanding story in more than name. The group is made up of a cross-generational mix of ABB descendants, co-workers, proteges and extended “family” members, including Brandon “Taz” Niederauer (guitar/vocals), Daniel Donat (guitar/vocals), Dylan Niederauer (bass guitar), Jack Ryan (drums), Nikki Glaspie (drums), Lamar Williams Jr. (singing), Pierre Levin (keys) and Roosevelt Necklace (pedal steel guitar).
