Not Your Daddy's Greg Allman

I live very close to the Turning Stone Resort and Casino. I can get there in 15 minutes. On November 12, in the Event Center Greg Allman will be appearing. From what I am able to read, it's not the Greg of "Whipping Post" or "Midnight Rider". It's not the guitar and balls to the wall performances of the past. It's Greg and his keyboard with a much more mellow, somewhat introspective style of music. I guess you could call it the grown up Greg.

I would love to go. The problem is going to be finding someone to go with me as Hubby isn't willing to spend that kind of money on a concert. Nosebleed seats are $35 plus, each. I don't think that's bad, but he isn't an Allman Brothers, or Greg Allman fan so I may have to go alone, which isn't thrilling me. We'll see, in the meantime there's always this....


  1. Here's a thought.....Find out WHICH Westbury NY Skynyrd is going to be at in October and make your decision then. One Westbury says one hour, another is four hours.

    Gregg would be better if Warren and Derek and the guys were with him, but that's just me.


  2. I'm not at all sure I want to spend that much money on him alone. Although I do like some of his solo stuff, I do prefer the Greg Allman Band videos I've looked at in youtube.

    I'm still thinking about it. He's in the Westbury that's 4 hours away.
