The Peacheaters, called “the greatest tribute act in America” by Henry Paul of The Outlaws, will bring celebrate the best music of the Allman Brothers Monday, July 3, at 7:30 p.m. at the Camden Opera House, 29 Elm St./Route 1.

Together nearly 20 years, The Peacheaters draw from the Allmans’ tremendous catalogue of work that spans 40 years.  They play both the major hits everyone loves and some of their really interesting, less well-known material.

“The recent passing of Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks has only increased the hunger for this music,” said guitarist Chuck Farrell.

In addition to Farrell, the band includes Rick “The Senator” Goode on guitar, known in the industry as one of the best slide players on the East Coast. Drummer AJ Vallee was formerly with the Southern Rock Allstars (who went on to be members of Blackfoot, Molly Hatchet and Marshall Tucker). And singer Jon Benett has a soulful voice that sounds eerily like a young Gregg Allman.

Charlie Farren of the Joe Perry Project and Fahrenheit will open the show. Fahrenheit toured extensively throughout the 1980s with Boston, J Giles and Aerosmith; these days, Farren is a one-man acoustic dynamo, supporting everyone from Lynard Skynard and Boz Skaggs to Dire Straits.

General admission tickets are $22 in advance and will be $28 day-of-show. They are available online at or via the box office, 536-5850 (fees apply); or in-person (fee free) 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays at Camden Town Office. The box office will open, and Fireside Restaurant and Lounge of Camden will begin serving craft beer, fine wines and wood-fired pizza, at 6:30 p.m.; and the auditorium opens at 7 p.m.
