Allman Brothers Band Gets Its Moogis On
But even if you already have plans to attend all the shows, or if you miss the run, you can still watch all the action via Moogis’ archived video collection.
The upcoming online experience will be the second time the band has streamed its annual NYC run on Moogis, having christened the video site by streaming its entire Beacon Theatre run last year.
But then, it’s not every band that has a member with his own video site. Moogis was created by Allman Brothers drummer and founding member Butch Trucks. Five years in development, the site got its name from Trucks then-infant son who would say “moogis” whenever he meant “music.”
Moogis isn’t a free site, and potential users must first pay a subscription fee before diving into the video streams. A one year subscription currently costs $150, but Moogis says that price will go up after March 11, which, not so coincidentally, is the band’s first night in the Big Apple.
Speaking of which, the dates for The Allman Brothers Band’s NYC residency at United Palace are March 11-13, 15-16, 18-20, 22-23 and 25-27. Although the band has traditionally played a string of March shows at New York City’s Beacon Theatre, that venue was unavailable this year due to scheduling conflicts.
