Laid Back Festival Returns in 2017 as Tribute to Gregg Allman
Gregg Allman’s Laid Back Festival will return this fall for three dates beginning September 21 in Holmdel, NJ with the run serving as a tribute to the festival’s late founder.
On September 21, the festival will kick off at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel with Jackson Browne, Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul, Peter Wolf and Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band. On September 23 at Hartford’s XFINITY Theatre, Steve Winwood will team with Browne, Wolf and Jaimoe. The final night at Jones Beach in Wantagh, NY on September 24 includes Browne, Winwood, Wolf, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band, Garland Jeffreys and Scott Sharrard & the Brickyard Band.
Named after Allman’s 1973 solo debut, the festival was founded in 2015 at Jones Beach and expanded in the years that followed, visiting a number of cities over the years. Among those who have performed include Allman himself as well as Jason Isbell, ZZ Top, Blackberry Smoke, Peter Frampton and many others.
