Allman Brothers/Dead w/Skydog and The Kind at the Harvester
October 24 @ 8:00 pm EDTGeneral Admission - Standup Show (Limited Seating)
50 years ago, The Grateful Dead and The Allman Brothers Band played the legendary Fillmore East together. Jerry Garcia said of the Allman Brothers, “I really enjoy playing with those guys, they’re fun to play with. They’re good.” Duane Allman echoed the admiration, “I love the Dead.
“To be the best damn Allman Brothers tribute band in the world,” remarks Jeremy Simmons with a tinge of well-earned confidence when speaking on the mission of the renowned SKYDOG.
Comprised of Virginia natives, the band admirably revives the music of the late brothers with a palpable passion that is so gleamingly apparent.
As a band that has been playing for nearly 11 years, SKYDOG has earned a following that ranges from a nostalgic fanbase reminiscing on the Fillmore East years to an ecstatic crowd of rhythm and blues, rock, jazz, classic country and sheer music appreciators.
The Kind, a Blacksburg based folk-rock band, is familiar to anyone who has passed through the New River Valley in the last thirty plus years. Formed in 1986, The Kind plays in a variety of styles that ranges from classic rock, R&B, and jazz to bluegrass and country; however, the arena which they most frequently blend their diverse influences is their huge melting pot of Grateful Dead covers.
