In Concert

Allmost Brothers Band

The popular tribute band enthusiastically performs, honoring the tradition of the legendary Allman Brothers Band. Working within the framework of the incredible and vast songbook of the legendary Allman Brothers, the Allmost Brothers inject something new, fresh and exciting into the material. They stand out with high-level musicianship, authentic improvisational interplay and dedication to the high octane performance and power that established the original ABB back in 1969. The accomplished band members — Sean McGrath, and Dave Filloramo on lead guitars, Joe Wasserman on vocals and keyboards, Dave Losee and Bruce Dickson on drums, Tom Hooker on bass, and Bob Oven on vocals/percussion/harmonica — thrive on chemistry and improvisation, bringing a unique fire to the songbook of the ABB. Duane Allman had a clear vision all those years ago, to spread the gospel of American blues, R&B, and jazz music everywhere. The Allmost Brothers share this same vision and precisely executive the ABB legacy with their explosive sound.

Friday, Oct. 25, 8 p.m. $20-$25. Landmark on Main Street, Jeanne Rimsky Theater, 232 Main St., Port Washington. (516) 767-6444 or www.landmarkonmainstreet.org.
