Big Band of Brothers: A Jazz Celebration of the Allman Brothers

featuring Jaimoe and stars Sammy Miller and The Congregation, with special guests Lamar Williams Jr. and Drew Smithers

Making their Bilheimer Capitol Theatre debut, The Big Band of Brothers touring ensemble is a celebration of the Allman Brothers Band songs done big band jazz style. The Big Band of Brothers features original Allman Brother legend Jaimoe, Sammy Miller & The Congregation, Lamar Williams Jr., and Drew Smithers.

While jazz interpretations of Allman Brothers Band classics might come off as a surprise to some, the genre always held great inspiration for the band. Gregg Allman, recalling their early days, said that “Jaimoe (drummer Jai Johanny Johanson) gave us a proper education about jazz and got us into Miles Davis and John Coltrane. Kind of Blue was always on the turntable – Duane really got his head around that album – he also seriously dug Coltrane’s My Favorite Things.”

“You’ve never heard these songs like this, and you’ve never heard a jazz big band play like this either.”
