Peacheaters - Allman Brothers experience at the Camden Opera House
CAMDEN — Put on your big Western hats, jeans and your boots and come celebrate some of the best music of this century performed by the Peacheaters, an Allman Brothers tribute band. Called "the greatest tribute act in America" by Henry Paul of the Outlaws, the Peacheaters play the Camden Opera House on Monday, July 3, at 7:30 p.m.
"They capture the spirit and passion of the Allmans and that ain't easy," said Henry.
Together nearly 20 years, the Peacheaters draw from the Allman's tremendous catalogue of work that spans 40 years. They play both the major hits everyone loves and some of their really interesting, less well known material. "We bring our ‘A’ game every time we play" said guitarist Chuck Farrell. "We want to be true to the music while bringing in our own voice. The recent passing of Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks has only increased the hunger for this music."
The band includes Rick "The Senator" Goode on guitar, known in the industry as one of the best slide players on the East Coast; AJ Vallee (drums) formerly with the Southern Rock Allstars, who went on to be members of Blackfoot, Molly Hatchet and Marshall Tucker; Jon Benett, vocals, has a soulful voice that sounds eerily like a young Gregg Allman.
Opening the show is Charlie Farren of the Joe Perry Project and Fahrenheit. Fahrenheit toured extensively throughout the 80s with Boston, J Giles and Aerosmith. Nowadays, Charlie is a one- man acoustic dynamo supporting everyone from Lynard Skynard to Boz Skaggs to Dire Straits.
