Watch Joe Russo, Marco Benevento, & Oteil Burbridge Debut New Supergroup [Full-Set Video]

first_imgSunday’s Peach Music Festival brought an exciting new supergroup, dubbed RB&B. Joe Russo, Marco Benevento, & Oteil Burbridge were tapped to replace Gregg Allman in his headlining set, and thus came the exciting new trio.With basically no lead time, the impromptu set stuck mostly to space-heavy jazz, showcasing the drummer, keyboardist, and bassist’s impressive abilities to improvise with one another. The three molded together quite intrinsically, leaving fans immediately wanting more out of the new group. With fingers crossed to see the trio reunite again in a setting beyond Scranton, PA, we are lucky to get a side-stage glimpse just hours after the performance itself, courtesy of uStream’s NYLifer:Video Production ServicesYou can catch Joe Russo and Oteil Burbridge at Brooklyn Comes Alive on October 22 alongside members of The String Cheese Incident, The Disco Biscuits, Lettuce, Soulive, Medeski Martin & Wood, Snarky Puppy, Primus, RatDog, Dopapod, and so many more.
