TICKET INFO COMING SOON!
IDLEWILD SOUTH, The Allman Brothers Band Tribute, was founded by keyboardist and vocalist Don Eason, a veteran musician whose initial influence of The Allman Brothers Band's live performance goes back to his first concert experience of the band on Easter Weekend of 1970, at The Winter's End Concert in Bithlo, Florida. A duo of drummers, Ricky Grubbs and John Flowers, plus percussionist John Martin provides the foundation with bassist Tim Smith rounding out the rhythm section. Slide Guitarist/Vocalist Dave George and Lead Guitarist/ Vocalist Tommy Hartley bring forth the dual guitar harmonies and searing guitar leads Duane Allman and Dickie Betts pioneered in the late 1960's. In the tradition of The Allman Brothers Band, IDLEWILD SOUTH's live shows can exceed a staggering 3 1/2 to 4 hours in length. The set lists are different every night, drawing from The Allman Brothers Bands’ self-titled debut album, 2nd album Idlewild South, Live At Fillmore East, Eat A Peach, and Brothers and Sisters, all recorded between 1969 and 1974. A few select songs from their albums between 1989 and 2000 are also included. In 2018 & 2019 IDLEWILD SOUTH has had the privilege of having Johnny Neel (Allman Brothers Band), Bruce Katz (Gregg Allman Band) and Lamar Williams, Jr. (Son of former ABB Bassist Lamar Williams) sit in for multiple shows. All of these great musicians will continue to play with IDLEWILD SOUTH as scheduling permits. In September of 2018 IDLEWILD SOUTH was invited to play for the Georgia Allman Brothers Band Association's annual "GABBAFEST", including a set at The Allman Brothers Band Museum, "The Big House", a most humbling and privileged experience.
Live shows will be looking a little different in order to do our part with social distancing while still filling the space we have available efficiently. The garage door at the rear of our stage will remain open during all performances so that you can enjoy the show from inside our venue space OR in our outdoor courtyard. Tickets will be sold as table reservations. There are tables for groups of 2,3,4,6, and 8 people. You must purchase the entire table in order to make a table reservation. We do not issue physical tickets; however, your name will be on a guest list when you arrive for the show. If you are arriving at a different time than the rest of your party be sure they know the last name that you made the table reservation under. You can use the graphic below to see the layout of our space and the description of different seating options. Make a note of which tables would suit your needs and then click the "tickets" button above the artist bio to proceed with your purchase. We look forward to having you! Please remember masks are required for entry.
