Macon , GA
The Allman Brothers Band was formed in March 1969 by legendary guitarist Duane Allman. An offer to sign with Capricorn Records brought the band to Macon, GA. Duane and his fellow band mates brother Gregg, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks, Jaimoe and Berry Oakley combined a wicked brew of blues, rock, jazz and country into a new musical genre.
In January 1970, Berry Oakley and wife Linda rented a Tudor-style house on Vineville Avenue. Duane and Gregg moved in as well. The house, The Big House became the center of the bands activities during those early years.
Today, the Big House has been restored as an Allman Brothers Band Museum, showcasing guitars and other musical instruments, clothing, photos, posters, gold records, a vast collection of memorabilia and state of the art technology.
The Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House guarantees that the dreams, music and legacy created so long ago by the band will live on; your support of the BIG House Foundation makes this possible, and we thank you for your contributions.
