Idlewild West "An Allman Brothers Tribute Band"
Idlewild West consists of Mike Green on vocals, Tom Mackey on slide and lead guitar, Jon Barnes on lead guitar, Ric Perez on Hammond B3 and piano, Rob Waxman on bass and Bill Swanson on drums. These musicians have been playing in rock, blues and jazz bands for many years. Rob Waxman and Bill Swanson were in a previous Allman Brothers tribute band called Southbound for 10 years. Idlewild West are faithful to the spirit of the Allman Brothers Band. We have deep respect for the music and the artistry that went into creating these amazing compositions. We have fun on stage and want the audience to feel the enjoyment as well. Eat a peach for peace!
