Brief description:

The 1971 Allman Brothers Band album At Fillmore East was a musical manifesto years in the

making. In Play All Night!, Bob Beatty dives deep into the motivations and musical background of

band founder Duane Allman to tell the story of one of the most important live rock albums in

history. Play All Night! is the biography of a sound, highlighting Duane’s musical vision and the

ways At Fillmore East demonstrates how he and his bandmates brought that vision to life.

Presenter bio:

Music obsessive. History Geek. Southerner. Guitar Player. Public Historian. Teacher. Writer. Fan,

Bob Beatty grew up devouring his mom’s Beatles’ and dad’s Hank Williams and bluegrass

records. Throughout his life he’s interwoven his love of punk rock, the Allman Brothers Band,

and the Jam Depression collective as a historian, fan, and musician and it was only a matter of

time that enduring passion culminated in a Ph.D. and publication of “Play all Night!” Duane

Allman and the Journey to Fillmore East. A cultural entrepreneur, Bob spent more than 25 years

working in nonprofits and museums in senior leadership roles before he founded the Lyndhurst

Group in 2016. As a public historian, a musician, a storyteller, and a family man, Bob focuses on

what brings people together as a community and as citizens of the world through the unending

conversation.
