What People Are Saying
"I've seen a lot of bands cover the Allman Brothers Band, including bands with various original members, and these guys came closer than just about anything I've seen/heard. Not note for note copies (except on a couple of numbers, e.g. they did an amazing recreation of the Live at Fillmore East version of "You Don't Love Me" by Willie Cobbs who happens to be the guy sharing my profile pic) but the ABB never played the same song twice the same way either.. these guys captured the spirit and the feel, and they all have the chops to pull it off." - Brennan Carley, Author, The Unbroken Circle, The Songs and the Artists That Shaped the Music of the Allman Brothers Band
We look forward to having them back at High Point Theatre in the near future. They were truly a fan favorite. The comments from those in attendance were stellar, and some old “Allman” folkies were ecstatic about the quality of the vocals, instrumentals and over all concert experience. - David S. Briggs, Director, High Point Theatre, High Point, NC
Led by Allman Brothers' bassist (78-82) David “Rook” Goldflies, A Brothers Revival is a legacy Allman Brothers Band whose bandleader spent years learning from and performing with Gregg, Dickey, Butch, and Jaimoe.
With the Allman Brothers, as well as Dickey Betts and Great Southern, David toured the U.S. and Europe and learned first-hand how the Allman Brothers sound was created. He performed for crowds as large as 100,000 people in arenas such as Soldiers Field and Mile High Stadium and on television shows like Saturday Night Live, Don Kirshner's Rock Concert, and Solid Gold. Rook received a Grammy nomination for the Allman Brothers instrumental “Pegasus” from Enlightened Rogues, a Billboard Top 10 certified Gold album. David is recognized by many fans as one of the Allman Brothers' most dynamic bass players, with his playing akin to the aggressive style of original Allman Brothers' bassist, Berry Oakley.
Joining Rook in A Brothers Revival is vocalist and keyboardist Mike Kach who toured with Dickey Betts and Great Southern for more than a decade. Mike was Dickey’s choice to carry on the sound of Gregg Allman's bluesy performances. The moment Mike sings the first few words of the popular show opener “Ain’t My Cross to Bear,” it's clear that Mike is imbued with a gift that brings people back to when they first heard Gregg Allman’s unique voice.
During the two-and-a-half-hour show, David leads A Brothers Revival through all the Allman Brothers' songs that we love: Jessica, One Way Out, Statesboro Blues, Midnight Rider, Melissa, Ramblin’ Man, In Memory of Elizabeth Reed, Soulshine, Whipping Post, and a few surprises for the fans that enjoy the deep jams. These brothers perform the songs with authentic passion while paying homage to the improvisational spirit of the original band, pushing the songs to new heights.
