Atlanta History Center and ATL Collective partner to present a celebration of music in its purest form, with a fun nod to some of Atlanta’s groovy music history. Each month, ATL Collective picks a classic album and collectively covers the track list in sequence, often complimenting the performance with multi-media presentations about the album and the historical/cultural context of its release.
This month, ATL Collective musicians showcase the Allman Brothers' Eat a Peach album, reconnecting fans to some of their favorite musical moments and memories. Bonus tracks performed during the evening pay homage to other artists like BB King, Jimi Hendrix, and Richie Havens who performed at Alex Cooley's 1970 Atlanta International Pop Festival, alongside the Allman Brothers. The evening’s featured artists include Grammy Award Nominee Jamison Ross, Kristina Train, and Rick Lollar backed by a house band of some of Atlanta’s finest musicians.
The evening includes food trucks, cash bars, and full access to Atlanta History Center exhibitions before fans gather in the Grand Overlook Ballroom for the intimate experience of performers honoring one of the Allman Brothers’ most popular albums. Chuck Reece of The Bitter Southerner will be the evening’s host providing oral history of the Allman Brothers, retellings of the Atlanta Pop Festival’s historical impact on Atlanta, and celebrating Alex Cooley.
Tickets are $25 in advance. Admission to Atlanta History Center included in ticket.
