Uptown! The Knauer Performing Arts Center will host the world’s most popular Allman Brothers tribute band and take audiences back to the 70s. Live at The Fillmore, named after New York’s legendary Fillmore East Auditorium, takes the stage for an evening of classic rock songs like “Midnight Rider” and “Whipping Post” and is one of the best-known tributes to the music of the Allman Brothers Band. This popular act is scheduled to perform on Saturday, June 25 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 in advance and $45 at the door. Tickets are available online at uptownwestchester.org or by phone at 610-356-ARTS. Uptown! The Knauer Performing Arts Center is located at 226 N. High Street.
Live At The Fillmore is the continuation of the band members’ devotion to performing the music of the original Allman Brothers Band as it was played in those early, “glory days” years. These highly talented and committed musicians attempt to authentically bring back the performances of the original Allman Brothers Band for those who were there to hear them and still remember them, as well as those who have a similar love for this music and would have liked be there. Expect to hear favorites like “Statesboro Street,” “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed,” “Whipping Post” and “Midnight Rider.” Live at The Fillmore has become the most popular and well-known tribute to the original Allman Brothers band. Great care is taken to recreate the music with an unrivaled degree of authenticity. The group was chosen as a featured performer on Time Life Southern Rock Cruise and received rave reviews for their Spring 2017 performance on national television as part of Axes TV’s World’s Best Tribute Bands.
The original Allman Brothers Band performed regularly at New York’s Fillmore East Auditorium run by legendary promoter Bill Graham and often referred to as “the church of rock and roll.” The Allman Brothers Band has played Fillmore East often enough to be called “Bill Graham’s house band.” It was here and at other venues in the New York metro area like the Central and Capital Theaters in Passaic New Jersey, the Schaefer Summer Concert Series in New York’s Central Park, where members of Live at The Fillmore first heard the Allman Brothers Band beginning in 1970.
“We love having bands here in the summer,” said Uptown executive director April Evans. “Audiences love these concerts and Live at the Fillmore is hugely popular with them. We want everyone to start their summer off right.”
Tickets are $40 in advance and $45 at the door. Tickets are available online at uptownwestchester.org or by phone at 610-356-ARTS or in person at the box office. Connect on social media with Uptown at @uptownwc on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
