My Blue Sky
"(I've seen) a lot of tribute bands perform over the years. My Blue Sky is without a doubt one of the best. Their tribute to the Allman Brothers family of bands is 100% true to the Allman legacy and to the original songs, which is no easy task....My Blue Sky is much more than a tribute band. The band’s original material and other covers are outstanding."
Scott Fitzke - The Blues Foundation - Board of Directors
