Los Angeles, CA – One of music’s
biggest and most influential juggernauts gets the respect and
admiration they so richly deserve on this brand new tribute album
available May 27th from Cleopatra Records! Featuring an eclectic
group of rock, country, and blues legends, Midnight Rider – A
Tribute To The Allman Brothers Band
offers energetic new covers
of the classic hits “Midnight Rider,” “Ramblin’ Man,” and
“Whipping Post” as well as one of the most famous instrumental
songs in all of rock music “Jessica,” alongside many more
Southern fried favorites!

“The Allman Brothers were a central
part of my roots,” proclaims guitarist Steve Morse, who shreds his
way through a smoldering version of “Whipping Post” on the album.
“Living in Georgia much of my life, they were the local legends
that everybody loved. They had the swing, the inventive double guitar
parts, the ability to jam just long enough to keep the audience, and
that golden voice of Greg’s! When my instrumental rock band, the
Dixie Dregs, played, we often played ‘Jessica,’ which
automatically makes any audience start moving and smiling. I’ve
been lucky enough to sit in with many of the members at various
times, and we have shared a lot of common ground. I’m still a fan!”

Duane Allen, lead vocalist for country
legends The Oak Ridge Boys, declares, “‘Ramblin’ Man’ is the
national anthem of Southern Rock & Roll, so it is a huge honor to
be asked to be a part of this tribute.” Allen’s sentiments are
echoed by several other participants including blues guitarist Eric
Gales who considered it a “great honor” and Tinsley Ellis who
also speaks enthusiastically of the group as “one of a handful of
musical acts, along with Ray Charles and Willie Nelson, that are
considered to be a genre unto themselves. It is a great honor to be
among the other stellar acts paying tribute to such a legendary and
influential American band.”

Speaking for a next generation of blues
rock artists, Eli Cook offers both high praise and a word of advice:
“The Allman Brothers’ story of talent, hard work, and blind
devotion to creating an honest and unique sound is one that every
artist should study and imitate. Just as they cut their teeth on Taj
Mahal, Cream, Elmore James, and all the great early R&B artists,
today’s players are wise to woodshed with the Eat A Peach
and Live At The Fillmore albums.” Or just pick up a copy of
