8 pm. A founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, Dickey Betts is known as one of the most influential guitar players of all time with hits such as "Ramblin' Man," "Jessica" and "Revival." He has mastered a seamless style of melody and rhythm that marries country, jazz, blues, and rock into one unparalleled sound. His guitar sound is still immediately recognizable, with soaring leads providing musical wings, and his road-seasoned vocals reflecting grit and hard-earned respect. He returns to The Playhouse for a night of good old southern rock and roll including covers, originals and classic Allman Brothers music. Tickets: $75
