Rolling Stones' Chuck Leavell to headline River Jam on May 17Chuck Leavell, the keyboard player for the Rolling Stones, will headline the free River Jam at the Riverfront Amphitheater on Saturday, May 17. Other performers are Atlanta jazz artist Reggie Hines; Rosco Bandana, a highlight of the 2013 River Jam; and the AJ Ghent Band, a Southern soul band led by lap steel guitarist AJ Ghent.
Leavell has been a member of the Rolling Stones live band since 1982 and became the full-time keyboard player in 1985 for the band following the death Ian Stewart. Leavell has played on every Rolling Stones album since ‘Some Girls’ (1978). Chuck Leavell is a former member of the Allman Brothers, including playing on their classic 1972 album “Brothers and Sisters,” featuring “Jessica” and “Ramblin’ Man.”
