Midnight Rider Capturing the Spirit of the Allman Brothers Band Live Tribute Entertainment from Chicago

Midnight Rider is a tribute to the remarkable talent and innovative abilities of the Allman Brothers Band. It is not about gimmicks and costumes. It is about the music; music that has inspired generations of fans through its boldness and creativity. The music is presented the way the Allman Brothers would have wanted it done. Soaring Double Guitars, Thundering Percussion Section and the Soulful Vocals. No backing tracks. No auto-tune. No Ipads. Just live music played by real people.

He has played with a myriad of national acts, from .38 Special and Molly Hatchet to Ronnie Spector and Jimmy Van Zandt.
Always a fan of the Allman Brothers Band, a trip to Macon was somewhat of an eye opening experience. On this pilgrimage, he was enlightened to All Things Allman.
