About five years ago, Allman Brothers Band drummer Butch Trucks realized that the current model of the music industry wasn’t working. After pondering the possibility of a new alternative to that model, he had a vision of an online music community where people could see and hear live shows with outstanding audio and video quality from the privacy of their homes. That vision, which seemed so futuristic just a few short years ago, has come to life. The time has come for Moogis.
Yes, it’s true, Moogis is here! The website at www.moogis.com is up and running and taking subscriptions for the entire upcoming Beacon run. With this year’s Beacon shows marking the 40th Anniversary of the ABB, you know these shows are going to be epic, and with Moogis you can see every show for less than the airfare to New York! Imagine seeing all the special guests and legendary performances as they happen, every memorable moment and exciting jam, without having to wait in line at the bathroom or put up with the obnoxious guy in the seat next to you spilling his beer in your lap.
The band has some special surprises up their sleeve for this run, but of course Butch isn’t letting the cat out of the bag. “I won’t reveal who’ll be jamming with us, because we like to keep those types of things a surprise,” says Trucks. “But I know it’s going to be one of the epic music events of the ages.”
Besides being able to watch the shows live, in real time, on your computer or TV, the shows will be archived and you will be able to watch them any time you want over the next six months. Besides the Beacon, Moogis members get access to all kinds of rare audio and video of the Allman Brothers, including the historic Piedmont Park show from 2007.

Going forward, Moogis hopes to build a real online community where people can interact and share the live music experience with each other. They are planning on wiring six different clubs throughout the country for live Moogis broadcasts, a different one every day of the week. In other words, if you thought Moogis was just about the Allman Brothers Band, think again. Be sure to check Moogis out in the social graph where you can connect with other Moogis fans, discuss and share great content, and be the first to know about new events, videos and other cool stuff as soon as it’s available!
