Peter Levin, longtime organist for The Gregg Allman Band and Blind Boys of Alabama, has
gone through an unbelievable and traumatic ordeal a few weeks ago, having undergone a last-minute, unplanned heart transplant in Nashville. Due to this massive surgery, he must take time to rehab and recover, which means no touring for the foreseeable future and an immense number of medical bills. The entire jam scene has been generous in helping with his recovery fund on GoFundMe.
Annie Thornhill, Executive Director of The American Heart Association Nashville, commented, “Stories like Peter’s give so much hope for a healthier future for everyone. We are so grateful for survivors like Peter who are willing to share their story to help spread awareness of the mission of the American Heart Association.”
“Last Spring we put together an online virtual concert festival called The Revealed Concert Series to promote my upcoming book, INSTRUMENTHEAD REVEALED. For one of the sets we put a band together, which consisted of Peter Levin, Jimbo Hart, Chad Gamble and Lamar Williams Jr. I told Peter since we had all these guys in the room maybe he should try to get Audley Freed to come in and do another set of Allman Brothers music. The result of Audley showing up is what you’re about to see in this stream. I am so proud we are able to release this video and it means so much more now after everything that Peter has gone through. This show truly is a celebration of life!” said Michael Weintrob.
Greg Nacron of Volume.com adds, “We could not be more thankful and excited to distribute such a special show. With so much happening in the world right now, Volume.com is committed to sharing positive content like this with the planet. We’re huge fans of Peter’s music and all the players that are part of this incredibly kind benefit.”
“It’s truly an honor to be able to be a part of such a special night of music for an incredible cause,” adds Chris Pizzolo of Immediate Family Records.
Volume is a new live streaming platform dedicated to helping musicians of all stripes to bring their music to fans with a seamless and collaborative interface.
