Allman Brothers Band Alumni and Associates Form Les Brers

Several original members and latter-day alumni of the Allman Brothers Band have put together a related group called Les Brers.

The group, which has only performed a handful of dates so far (including a Macon show which benefitted the Allman Brothers’ Big House Museum), consists of original ABB drummers Butch Trucks and Jaimoe, longtime members Oteil Burbridge (bass) and Marc Quinones (percussion), former ABB guitarist Jack Pearson, frequent ABB guest Bruce Katz on keyboards, singer Lamar Williams Jr. (son of the former ABB bassist) and guitarist Pat Bergeson.

Les Brers plays an eclectic selection of Allman Brothers Band material (including the instrumental jam “Les Brers in A Minor” from the Allmans album Eat a Peach, from which the group takes its name), as well as covers of artists such as Dr. John and Joe Tex.
