Hittin’ the Note is dedicated to capturing the live experience of the Allman Brothers band. The band was formed by percussionists Jeff Turcotte and his son Gregg, and includes both seasoned players to lend the tribute authenticity, and younger musicians to give the music a fresh sound.https://hawksandreed.ticketfly.com/event/1600611/
"When I was a sophomore in high school I bought my first Allman Brothers album 'Beginnings'! I sat and listened to that album every night for weeks on end. We attempted to play 'Whipping Post' in the 1st band I ever played in at high school dances. It was a passable version and my appreciation for Allman’s music grew from there. Over the years I have played many of their tunes and listened to a lot of their music. Fast forward 40+ years and when I decided to create a tribute band, so I could share the stage with my son, there was only one choice. We both play drums/percussion and the Allman Brothers showcased that aspect of their music, along with the dual guitars and Gregg’s vocals that were at the forefront of the bands signature sound.
"To give the band a certain edge in today's market I rounded up some young guys who I knew were into the jam band scene. Because they didn’t grow up with the music as I did their approach is different, it’s fresh. So, this combined with a couple of other seasoned players rounds out the band. We are all about capturing that live experience of the Allman Brothers. They changed it up every night and played how they felt and we honor that sentiment. Currently we cover the Allman Brothers entire career from start to finish, albeit our band name. Hittin’ The Note was the bands final album and Gregg stated that phrase meant it was spot on. We hope you come away from one of our shows feeling that was the case in our representation."
