The world knows Oteil Burbridge as the Allman Brothers bassist, and as a

founding member of the Aquarium Rescue Unit. In recent years Oteil and the

Peacemakers have brought a lot of attention to Oteil's skills as a band leader.

Now Hamilton has a chance to hear this Grammy-nominated musician at his

peak!

- - - - - -

Derek Trucks calls Oteil Burbridge "The Michael Jordan of the bass." That's

probably the best place to start.

Burbridge has always been in demand as a session and live musician. Recently

he was simultaneously a member of six different bands. He is probably best

known though for his membership in the Allman Brothers Band. His work with

the band has earned him two Grammy nominations for best rock instrumental, in

2004 and 2005.

Although Burbridge's resume dominates any story about the Peacemakers, each

member of the group brings important elements to the band. Paul Henson is

known as the lead singer of the Aquarium Rescue Unit, after Col. Bruce

Hampton's departure in 1993. Drummer Chris Fryar has done session/side work

with acts as diverse as Robert Moore, Charles Neville, and Victor Wooten.

Keyboardist Matt Slocum was classically trained and attended the New England

Conservatory of Music, and guitarist Mark Kimbrell is also a veteran of the

session scene.

Instrumentation -

Oteil Burbridge: Bass

Mark Kimball: Guitars

Matt Slocum: keyboards, violin

Chris Fryer: drums

Paul Henson: vocals

Damn... I have a ballgame that night. Normally I'd skip out on it in a second but between weddings and shows and other obligations I'm already missing a bunch of games...

Hell, what's one more eh? I don't think I can miss this show...

What time do you think they'll actually start Bri?

Right on, glad people are happy about this. I’m pretty excited myself.

They’re scheduled for two sets starting at 9:35. I hope you can make it.

Alabama Man, give me a call. We got to hook up. Cheers bro

Brian, you're a man after my own heart! How do you always know what I want to see?!? I'm thinking this might have to warrant a "sick" night (and I'm not even doing that for the ABB this year). Thanks again for bringing all the great music to town, and if there's ever anything you want me to do, you know where to reach me :)

On another note someone picked up 4 tickets from spiritual smoke and they paid debit and were charged tax (ticket price includes tax). It was a new staff member and they made a mistake. If anyone knows who this is please let them know that I’m going to reimburse them and sorry for the hassle. I have the ticket numbers and will also try and catch them at the door if I haven’t already found them. They can also go back to the store and ask for Allan ... he's usually off on Tues & Wed.

Cheers
