Jules Leyhe is gonna piss off some blues guitar purists.

His main passion is the blues, and he cuts the best blues-slide licks since Derek Trucks—maybe even Duane Allman. But you won’t find one blues song on his newest release, Your First Rodeo. In fact, they’re not really on any of his albums. His songs are a steady stream of EDM, ’70s funk, Hendrix-like psychedelic jams, and horn sections from south of the border. Think Oz Noy and his admittedly twisted take on jazz. That’s what Leyhe brings to the blues.

The Allman Brothers headlined the 10th Annual music festival atop Hunter Mountain in the heart of the majestic Catskill Mountains.

With red-hot shades to match his red-hot signature Vox Custom Shop guitar, Robinson played an inspired set with his Brotherhood band at Mountain Jam—even using a garden gnome figurine as a pick. He describes his band’s sound as “classic California space boogie.”

Both guitarists will continue with the band through the end of 2014.

New York, NY (January 8, 2014) -- For 25 years and 15 years respectively, we've had the honor and pleasure of playing, living, learning, and traveling with the Allman Brothers Band, one of the truly legendary rock and roll bands. We will be forever grateful for the opportunity and the experience, and for the love, enthusiasm, and support of the incredible fans. We are both preparing to dig even deeper into our various creative and musical endeavors and, as a result, 2014 will be our final year as part of the band. We are looking forward to seeing our loyal ABB fans at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta this Friday night January 10th and in March at the Beacon Theater in New York City as we celebrate the 45th Anniversary of the band. - Warren Haynes & Derek Trucks
