Peach Eaters, Allman Brothers! & Delta Generators, Blues

The Peacheaters pay homage to the music of the Allman Brothers Band. While much more than just a “tribute” band, they revel in playing this music for the many generations of the Allman Brothers Band fanbase which is affectionately referred to as the “Family”. The Peacheaters are some of the biggest fans of the ABB you’d ever meet and view their shows as not so much people coming to see them but where as one band and fans of the music can celebrate the event together. No two shows are ever the same!

Love Dogs, R&B/swing

Take one red-hot horn section – we’re talkin’ alto, tenor, baritone saxes and trombone – down and dirty. Add liberal amounts of barrelhouse boogie-woogie piano and stinging Fender guitar. Pour over a funky and swinging rhythm section that Blues Review magazine called “the best in the business”, and top it all off with a crazy and charismatic front man with one of the biggest blues voices around. Season with a few years on the road tearing up juke joints, festivals and concert halls across the U.S. and Canada and on both sides of the Atlantic. Sound tasty?

Know Your Host:
Al Dean

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
