A Brother’s Revival Fall Fillmore Tour arrives at Newberry Opera House
NEWBERRY – A Brother’s Revival continues its Fall Fillmore tour with a local performance at the Newberry Opera House, 1201 McKibben Street on Friday, October 8.
A Brother’s Revival is a real band inherited from the Allman Brothers with former Allman Brothers bassist David “Rook” Goldflies. The band will perform the entire At Fillmore East album on their fall Fillmore tour to celebrate the album’s 50th anniversary. At Fillmore East is often called the best live rock and roll album of all time and catapulted the Allman Brothers Band onto the world stage. A Brother’s Revival’s Fall Filmore tour begins in the south and heads to the east coast.
David “Rook” Goldflies has deep roots in southern rock, having toured and recorded albums with the Allman Brothers Band and Dickey Betts and Great Southern. Goldflies was also the bassist for the rock hit Black Betty released by Ram Jam.
“At Fillmore East, it’s a masterpiece that has stood the test of time. Bringing those songs back to life is the best way I can think of to celebrate those nights at the Fillmore East, ”said Goldflies.
Goldflies is also a journalist, with an article recently published in Medium showing his unique take on “owing” the Allman Brothers Band’s legacy as a bass player from 1979 to 1983.
Singer and keyboardist for A Brother’s Revival, Mike Kach toured with Dickey Betts and Great Southern for 12 years and was Betts’ choice to sing the songs originally sung by Gregg Allman. Kach successfully brings you back to the sound of Allman’s blues performances.
A Brother’s Revival performs the classics of the Allman Brothers, including “Midnight Rider”, “Ramblin ‘Man” and “Blue Sky”. The second half of the night, the band will take you back to 1971 at the Fillmore East and play the album At Fillmore East in the original order, ending with the iconic “Whipping Post”.
Show time: 8 p.m. Call (803) 276-6264 for tickets.
