Butch Trucks & The Freight Train Band

November 20, 2016 - Bethesda Jazz & Blues Supper Club - Bethesda, MD

Founding Allman Brothers Band drummer Butch Trucks pulled into Bethesda, MD with The Freight Train Band on November 20, 2016. The band members, hand-picked by Butch for their talent, passion, and drive, as he told me in a recent interview, are: Heather Gillis (guitar/vocals), Damon Fowler (guitar/vocals), Bruce Katz (keyboard), Chris Vitarello (guitar/vocals), Matt Walker (bass), and Garrett Dawson (percussion). The band ripped through several Allman Brothers Band tunes as well as original tunes by Damon Fowler, Bruce Katz, and Chris Vitarello. Butch really loves to play, and if you see him live, with any band, that is evident. While members rotate in and out as life and schedules permit, Butch & The Freight Train always deliver, and it's always a party!
