A Brothers Revival

A Brothers Revival with Allman Brothers / Black Betty Bassist, David “Rook” Goldflies


There is one band with the musical roots to carry on the music and spirit of the Allman Brothers Band; that band is A Brothers Revival.


Former Allman Brothers’ bassist (78-82), and bandleader of A Brothers Revival, David “Rook” Goldflies spent years touring and performing with Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks, and Jaimoe.


With the Allman Brothers, as well as Dickey Betts and Great Southern, David toured the U.S. and Europe and learned first-hand how the Allman Brothers sound was created. He performed for crowds as large as 100,000 people in arenas such as Soldiers Field and Mile High Stadium and on television shows like Saturday Night Live, Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert, and Solid Gold. Rook received a Grammy nomination for the Allman Brothers instrumental “Pegasus” from Enlightened Rogues; a Billboard Top 10 certified Gold album. David is recognized by many fans as one of the Allman Brothers‘ most dynamic bass players, with his playing akin to the aggressive style of the original Allman Brothers‘ bassist, Berry Oakley. Other influences include Jack Bruce, Miroslav Vitous, Charlie Haden, Stanley Clarke, and Jaco Pastorius.


Joining Rook in A Brothers Revival is vocalist and keyboardist Mike Kach who toured with Dickey Betts and Great Southern for more than a decade. Mike was Dickey’s choice to carry on the sounds of Gregg Allman’s stellar blues performances. When Mike sings the first few words of the popular show opener “Ain’t My Cross to Bear,” it’s clear that Mike has a gift that brings people back to when they first heard Gregg Allman’s unique voice.


Rook leads A Brothers Revival through all the Allman Brothers‘ songs that we love: Jessica, One Way Out, Statesboro Blues, Midnight Rider, Melissa, Ramblin’ Man, In Memory of Elizabeth Reed, Soulshine, Whipping Post, and a few surprises for the fans that enjoy the deep jams. These brothers perform the songs with authentic passion while paying homage to the improvisational spirit of the original band, pushing the songs to new heights.
