The Brothers at Madison Square Garden

What's left of The Allman Brothers Band came together Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden in New York to mark their 50th anniversary.

Calling themselves The Brothers, original member Jaimoe was joined by latter day members Warren Haynes,Derek Trucks,Oteil Burbridge and Marc Quinones, along with keyboardist Reese Wynans who was in the pre-Allman Brothers Band The Second Coming, drummer Duane Trucks from Widespread Panic, and former Allman Brothers keyboardist Chuck Leavell. (Derek and Duane are brothers and the nephew of the late Allman's drummer Butch Trucks.)

They did a 24-song set spread over two sets. The first set started with a cover of The Spencer Davis Group's “Don’t Want You No More” and closed with "Jessica."

Set two started with "Mountain Jam" and ended with "Whipping Post," the second of two encores.

The show was Jaimoe's idea -- one of only two original members left. Guitarist Dickey Betts was asked to be part of the show, but is medical issues prevented him from participating.
