Levin, longtime organist for The Gregg Allman Band and Blind Boys of Alabama, has recently gone through a traumatic ordeal, having undergone a last-minute, unplanned heart transplant in Nashville. Due to this massive surgery, he must take time to recover, which means no touring for the foreseeable future and immense medical bills. The jam scene has been generous in helping with his recovery on GoFundMe.
Annie Thornhill, Executive Director of the American Heart Association Nashville, commented, "Stories like Peter's give so much hope for a healthier future for everyone. We are so grateful for survivors who are willing to share their stories to help spread awareness of the mission of the American Heart Association."
"Last spring, we launched an online virtual concert festival called The Revealed Concert Series and we put a band together, consisting of Peter Levin, Jimbo Hart, Chad Gamble, and Lamar Williams Jr. I told Peter, since we had all these guys in the room, maybe he should get Audley Freed to come in and do another set of Allman Brothers music. The result is what you're about to see in this stream. I'm so proud we are releasing this show. It means so much more now. It's truly a celebration of life," said Michael Weintrob, founder of Instrumenthead Live.
Greg Nacron of Volume.com adds, "We could not be more thankful and excited to distribute such a special show. With so much happening in the world right now, Volume.com is committed to sharing positive content like this with the planet. We're huge fans of Peter's music and all the players that are part of this incredibly kind benefit."
