melody trucks, lead singer and co-host of the Allman Brothers Brother And Sister tribute band with brother Vaylor, and successful solo artist, is a featured guest artist (as is Vaylor) on the famous Allman Family Revival Tour which kicks off Saturday, November 26. at the Macon City Auditorium in Macon, Georgia. Other dates Melody and Vaylor join the AFR Tour: November 27 (Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater); November 28 (Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, Sarasota); Nov. 29 (Pompano Amphitheater, Pompano Beach); and November 30 (Florida Beach, Jacksonville).
Melody, who recently performed at Peach Fest, is also hitting the road in December with the Lee Boys, one of America’s top African-American sacred steel ensembles.
“The children of the late Butch Trucks gave so much soul to the Allman tracks they featured on that it was clear they had spent their formative years on stage, grooming themselves for the spotlight through heredity, l ‘osmosis and love,’ Live For Live Music wrote of the band’s performance at the Suwanee Rising Music Festival. “Vaylor and Melody, the two oldest children of Butch Trucks, the late drummer and founder of the Allman Brothers Band. Recreating the sound of their father’s old band is what Brother and Sister is all about,” writes the Florida Times Union.
In 2022, Melody also co-hosted the “Blue Jay Concert Series” in her hometown of Jacksonville, at the Blue Jay Listening Room. Guest artists have included guitar great Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi All Stars, The Black Crowes); Jimmy Hall, singer/longtime harpist of Southern rock legends, Wet Willie; and recent Grammy nominee, the “Piana From Savannah”, Victor Wainwright.
