Got a bad case of "Statesboro Blues"? Been a while since you heard a real, resounding "Mountain Jam"?

Then get out your calendar, music fans, and set aside the night of Tuesday, July 6, when the Allman Brothers Band will belt out their unmistakable blend of cosmic blues and southern rock ‘n roll.

The July 6 concert will be one of four in Ketchum this summer organized by Boise-based concert promoter Bravo Entertainment.

Jonny Lang plays at the Ketchum-Sun Valley Outdoor Pavilion on Tuesday, June 29.

Bravo this week announced that its summer concert series planned for the Ketchum-Sun Valley Outdoor Pavilion—also known as the Ketchum Park and Ride Lot—will include a list of artists whose work spans nearly four decades.

The concert series will kick off Tuesday, June 29, with blues aficionado Jonny Lang. At 22, Lang already has produced two platinum-selling albums and earned a Grammy nomination. His third album release, "Long Time Coming," was released last year to wide acclaim.

Lang will be joined by the Young Dubliners and Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers.

On Tuesday, July 6, the Allman Brothers Band will perform with special guests Chris Robinson’s New Earth Mud. Robinson is known best for his soulful vocals with the Black Crowes, the Atlanta-based band that rose to immediate stardom after the 1990 release of "Shake Your Money Maker."

The Allman Brothers Band, which sat among the elite of the rock music world in the early 1970s, has endured behind the raw musical talent of longtime leader Gregg Allman.

The band's lineup now features Allman (vocals, keyboards), Butch Trucks (percussion), Derek Trucks (guitar), Marc Quinones (percussion), Oteil Burbridge (bass), Jaimoe (percussion) and Warren Haynes (guitar).

Harry Connick Jr., a renowned pianist and vocalist who has produced four multi-platinum and three platinum albums, will perform in Ketchum Thursday, July 15.

Journey, whose mixture of classic rock and ballads brought them to widespread fame in the 1980s, will play the final date of the series, Wednesday, Aug. 4.

The Journey concert will precede one of the Wood River Valley’s best-known summer music events, the Northern Rockies Folk Festival, scheduled for Aug. 6 and 7, in Hailey.

Guitar virtuoso Derek Trucks joins his uncle, drummer Butch Trucks, when the Allman Brothers Band plays in Ketchum Tuesday, July 6.

Bravo will commence ticket sales for the entire Ketchum concert series before selling tickets to individual concerts. Tickets for the series go on sale Friday, April 23, at 10 a.m. They can be purchased at Atkinsons’ markets in Ketchum and Hailey, by phone at (800) 965-4827, or on the Internet at www.ticketweb.com.

All concerts are general admission, except for the Harry Connick Jr. performance, for which general admission and reserved seating will be sold. A maximum of 4,000 tickets to each concert can be sold by Bravo outlets.

Tickets not sold through the pre-sale of series packages will go on sale April 30. Prices for individual tickets have not yet been established.
