Idlewild South / Bio

IDLEWILD SOUTH, The Ultimate Allman Brothers Band Tribute, was co-founded by Don Eason, keyboardist and vocalist, a veteran musician whose initial influence of The Allman Brothers Band's live performance goes back to Easter Weekend of 1970, at The Winter's End Concert in Bithlo, Florida.. A duo of drummers, including co-founder Robert Kintner, and John Flowers, provides a massive foundation for this band with syncopated beats and evolving rhythms. Bass guitarist Tim Smith rounds out the rhythm section with a playing style that allows this band to duplicate the blues-rock harmonies, and improvisations associated with these signature Allman Brothers compositions and classic blues interpretations. Slide Guitarist Dave George recalls the magic of Duane Allman's slide wizardry while Lead Guitarist Pete Waggoner compliments Dave with Dickie Betts inspired harmonic solos and country blues vocals.
In the tradition of The Allman Brothers Band, IDLEWILD SOUTH's live shows can exceed a staggering 3 1/2 to 4 hours non- stop in length. The set lists are different every night, drawing from The Allman Brothers Bands self-titled debut album, through Idlewild South, Live At Fillmore East, Eat A Peach, and Brothers and Sisters, all recorded between 1969 and 1974. A few select songs from their albums between 1989 and 2000 are also included.
