DATE:  FEBRUARY 10, 2011
MARCH 10-26

Fans of rock music icons the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND are getting ready for their annual pilgrimage to New York City’s Beacon Theatre, where the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees will again take up residency for 13 shows (March 10-26).   The group will also headline their own WANEE MUSIC FESTIVAL in Live Oak, FL (which takes place April 14-16) with special guests Widespread Panic, Robert Plant & Band of Joy and the Steve Miller Band.  Those who can’t make the trip to New York City or Florida--or want to re-live the experience later--can sign up to and stream all the shows at their leisure in full hi-def glory. 
The group--recently described by Rolling Stone senior writer David Fricke as “one of rock’s great touring bands and curing blues across the land since 1969 (1/18/11)”--has been performing lengthy residencies in New York City since 1989 and continue this year with their return to the Beacon in what Fricke called a “hallowed local tradition (4/9/07).”  “Rituals and roots figure big in the world of the Allman Brothers Band,” wrote Jim Farber in his 2009 New York Daily News review, where he went on to describe their live staple “Mountain Jam” as “…their most abstract and their most forceful.  It’s a piece rooted in key parts of rock and blues history, yet, in its evolving form, leaves them open to the future (3/10/09).” 
The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND--GREGG ALLMAN (vocals and keyboards), BUTCH TRUCKS (drums and tympani), JAIMOE (drums), WARREN HAYNES (vocals, lead and slide guitar), DEREK TRUCKS (slide and lead guitar), OTEIL BURBRIDGE (bass) and MARC QUINONES (congas and percussion)--have limited touring plans in 2011, allowing the group to embrace other projects, including ALLMAN’s new solo album LOW COUNTRY BLUES (out now).
After the Beacon Theatre run, the band will headline the three-day WANEE FESTIVAL  that they host in Live Oak, FL April 14-16.  This year’s headliners include Widespread Panic, along with first timers Robert Plant & The Band Of Joy and The Steve Miller Band.  Other guests include Warren Haynes Band, Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Band, Jaimoe's Jasssz Band, Ween, Stephen Marley, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Mike Gordon, Hot Tuna, 7 Walkers Feat. Bill Kreutzmann, Galactic , Taj Mahal, North Mississippi Allstars, Keller Williams, John Popper & The Duskray Troubadours, The Radiators, Wanda Jackson, Rusted Root, Oteil Burbridge and The Lee Boys,Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Big Gigantic, Melvin Seals & JGB, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, New Deal, Lotus, Tea Leaf Green, DJ Logic, Toubob Krewe, Devon Allman's Honeytribe, Bobby Lee Rodgers Trio, Soul Rebels Brass Band, Guitar Shorty, Dangermuffin, Honey Island Swamp Band, Kevin Hammond, Death on Two Wheels, The Yeti Trio, Jacob Jeffries Band and Griffin Anthony.

Funeral Arrangements Set For Craig Morgan's Son Jerry

Jerry Michael Hardy Greer is the son of Craig and Karen Greer. He was 19 years old on the day of his going home. Jerry was the smile that instantly lit up any room. He was a superstar without even trying. He was a natural athlete that accomplished what most spend a lifetime attempting to achieve. He was a devoted and dedicated son, brother and friend. He loved his God, his family, his friends and his country more than anything. His passions were football, soccer and the outdoors. He will be greatly missed by everyone who came in contact with him. He will be forever in our thoughts, in our words, and in our hearts. 
Jerry was preceded in death by grandfather William Edward Horn, grandmother Betty Sue Crockett and cousin Brant Keith Kelley.
Jerry is survived by his parents Craig and Karen Greer; his sister Marisa Davis, niece Bailey and nephew Jameson; his sister Alexandra Beaird, her husband Ryan and nephew Cruze; his brother Kyle Greer and his fiancé Chelsea Rogers; and his brother Wyat…

New Flavor Friday from Blue Bell..

From KHOU-TV Houston:  BRENHAM, TX -- Blue Bell Ice Cream is teasing a new flavor on its social media feeds. The Texas-based ice cream company has been slowly reintroducing its flavors to many of the markets it had withdrawn from after last year's fatal Listeria outbreak forced them to completely shut down production for a time. During the shutdown, the company worked with outside experts to control and eliminate potential sources of Listeria inside the Texas and Oklahoma facilities where the outbreak originated. While production of the iconic brand has resumed, not all of the company's flavors that were being produced prior to the plant closings are available. Blue Bell has been taking a measured reintroduction, and now has product available in most states and markets where they were prior to the closings. In this week's social media tease, the company says the new flavor will have fans "dancing in the grocery store aisles." Our newest flavor is a combination o…

They call her..The Bare Naked Bandit..29 yr Old Lee Grace Doherty

ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding. A few hours later, they robbed a bank in Georg…
