Gregg Allman headlines UK festival


Aug 4, 2015 – Ramblin’ Man Fair had a great line up on 26th of July as Gregg Allman from The Allman Brothers Band fame headlined on the main stage. Festival was held in Mote Park in Maidstone, a stones throw from London and easily accessible from continental Europe.  The Guardian had lot of nice things to say about Gregg:

The night’s rare quality was also down to the sheer musicianship of Allman’s new nine-piece band, note-perfect over two hours of what looked effortless but was simply mastery. A vehement percussion section combined Steve Potts (from Booker T’s MGs and the Otis Rush band) with Marc “Conga-head” Quiñones, a Bronx Latino who performed in the Latin Opera at Carnegie Hall aged nine before playing with Tito Puente. On the three-piece brass deck was Marc Franklin, who has often stood behind BB King and Aretha Franklin; on bass, Ron Johnson, fresh from service with Buddy Guy and Taj Mahal.
