Peacheaters and Jon Butcher Axis


The Peacheaters

The Peacheaters dig deep into the 40 + year catalog of Allman Brothers Band music and deliver an EXPERIENCE like no other. No 2 shows are ever alike. The Peacheaters make these songs feel as fresh as the first time you heard them. Fueled by admiration and passion for the music of the ABB, The Peacheaters have been rocking audiences for over 15 years. The Boston Globe, WZLX, Boston's Classic Rock Radio, and many other media outlets have raved about the authenticity of the band's performances. From festivals to concert halls, the band's success has taken them all over the U.S. performing at The House of Blues, Boston, The Big House, Macon G.A. and B.B. Kings N.Y.C. to name a few. The band's dedication to this music, and to “hitting the note” every night, has helped them build an loyal and ever-growing fan base. The “Peach” has won multiple “Best Tribute Band” awards, and shared stages with legends such as The Outlaws, Melvin Seals (Jerry Garcia Band), Matt Abts (Gov’t Mule), The Zen Tricksters, and James Montgomery.

Jon Butcher Axis - All The Hits

The year was 1981 and The Jon Butcher Axis (Jon Butcher, Chris Martin & Derek Blevins) had taken the Boston music scene by storm. WBCN was playing their songs while the band performed to sold out audiences at iconic venues such as The Channel, The Paradise and others. Their big break came when the week after Christmas, they got the nod to open for the mighty J. Geils band on a short run of dates throughout the Northeast. A month later the Geils Band called again, this time with an invite to do the North American leg of the Freeze Frame tour, highlighted by three sold out Boston Garden shows (all while the band had no record deal and no booking agent).

The tour was an unqualified success; JBA wowed audiences across the country. By the end of the Freeze Frame tour JBA had secured a record deal with PolyGram. 1983 saw the release of 'The Jon Butcher Axis' on PolyGram and tours with Rush (the Signals Tour), and Def Leppard, on the biggest tour of 1983, for their Pyromania album. JBA released their second album in 1984, Stare At the Sun, and spent much of that year opening for the Scorpions from coast to coast. They were nominated for an MTV award in 1983 for the video accompanying Life Takes A Life, and were a fixture on music television.

More recently The Axis released Axis 3 in 2013, featuring updated versions of some of their best-know tunes from the PolyGram era, as well as 'Experienced', an homage to the great Jimi Hendrix. Jon and the band (now featuring drummer John Anthony) continue to explore and re-define their artistic vision and have recently re-mastered and re-released their first two albums on CD to mark their 35th anniversary bringing the fans “All The Hits”.
