I miss seeing the Allman Brothers live, but Saturday, October 23rd we'll get the next best thing with "Wake Up Mama", a tribute to the Allman Brothers Band. Not only will you be gobstopped by the incredible musicians, but this is also a show to benefit Preble Street, which is a human services anti-poverty agency. Preble Street programs meet the urgent needs of homeless teens, homeless veterans and victims of sex trafficking. Issues such as hunger, poverty and homelessness are addressed through Preble Street programs; offering everything from clean clothes, healthcare, showers, nutritious meals, crisis intervention and more.

Support Preble Street by joining us for Wake Up Mama, a tribute to the Allman Brothers Band, on Saturday, October 23rd from 8-11pm. Doors open at 7pm at Sun Tiki Studios, 375 Forest Ave., Portland. Tickets are $15/$20, buy them here.

Now for some name dropping! Your seven talented musicians for the evening will be lead by one of Maine's finest guitarists, Tom Faunce. You might know Tom from Maine Dead Project or ECHOES: A Tribute to Pink Floyd. Also playing is the amazing Michael Corletto, the 17 year old guitar prodigy from the Great Aunt Alice Band. Michael will be sharing lead vocals with Papa Tim, who's band will represent Maine in the upcoming national competition, "Road to Memphis".

Here's Michael Corletto at 13-years-old playing with Buddy Guy at Aura in Portland.

 

We hope to see you Saturday night at Sun Tiki Studios to celebrate Preble Street through the music of the Grammy winning Allman Brothers Band. What's your favorite Allman's song? Whipping Post? Melissa? One Way Out? Midnight Rider? No wonder Rolling Stone magazine included them in their list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time; Live at the Fillmore East came in at number forty nine.
