When your surname is synonymous with one of the most revered forebears of seminal Southern Rock as well as archetypical Americana, it’s incumbent on you to honor that legacy and the music on which it was built. It’s little wonder then that Devon Allman, son of the late Gregg Allman (Allman Brothers) and an accomplished singer, songwriter and guitarist in his own right, should opt to launch a new band along with a series of high profile performances, the latest chapters in an already storied solo career.
Allman, the former lynchpin behind such bands as the Royal Southern Brotherhood and Honeytribe, has assembled The Devon Allman Project, a sixpiece ensemble featuring a percussionist/multi instrumentalist, a Hammond B3 player, and an additional guitarist. The kick-off with special guest Duane Betts at the Fillmore show on December 8th will feature appearances by Luther and Cody Dickinson (of North Mississippi All-Stars), Peter Levin (Gregg Allman Band, Blind Boys of Alabama, CSN, Doobie’s etc.), Samantha Fish, Jimmy Hall (Wet Willie, Jeff Beck, Hank Williams Jr.) and Bobby Whitlock (Derek & The Dominos, Dr. John, Rolling Stones etc.) and longtime Gregg Allman keyboardist, Peter Levin, will act as the musical director.
