A Final Allman Brothers Show in Honor of Duane Allman

Barry Grummer is a longtime New York contractor and executive who leads K Restoration & Roofing Corp. as president. Passionate about music of the 1960s and 1970s, Barry Grummer enjoys the recordings of musicians such as Eric Clapton and the Allman Brothers Band. A seminal Southern rock outfit, the Allman Brothers continued throughout the decades, despite the early loss of founding member Duane Allman to a motorcycle accident.

October, 29, 2014, marked the Allman Brothers’ final concert, with the extended show coming on the 43rd anniversary of Duane’s 1971 death. Guitarist Derek Trucks paid tribute to the slide guitar legend by playing his Goldtop 1957 Les Paul throughout the concert.

The encore featured the blues standard, “Trouble No More.” Originally recorded by Muddy Waters in the 1950s, the song was the first that the original Allman Brothers jammed to after forming. Keyboardist Gregg Allman noted that, despite a friendly rivalry with his late brother, “he lit a fire under me and under all of us.”
