They were joined by Derek's younger brother, Widespread Panic drummer Duane Trucks; former Allmans pianist Chuck Leavell; and ex-Double Trouble organist Reese Wynans.
The show was the final major concert held in New York City before the start of the COVID-19 lockdown.
In a post-concert interview with The Wall Street Journal, Jaimoe said, "It just felt like no BS, and all about music and love...I wanted to play music with my brothers. Everyone else is paying homage to the Allman Brothers music -- and some of us are still here."
Speaking about the event with American Songwriter, Haynes noted, "In a lot of ways, it was a show that we had talked about doing as the Allman Brothers Band but it never came to fruition. From the first moment of rehearsal it felt wonderful, and it just got better and better. I was very proud of everyone."

"Don't Want You No More"/"It's Not My Cross to Bear"
