Devon Allman, former leader of Honeytribe and the Royal Southern Brotherhood, as well as the son of the late Gregg Allman, will embark on a massive tour with The Devon Allman Project. The Devon Allman Project will be joined by special guest Duane Betts for a 30+ minute encore each night, while Duane will also open each show.
The Devon Allman Project is a sextet that finds Devon joined by percussionists John Lum and R. Scott Bryan as well as bassist Justin Corgan, guitarist Jackson Stokes and organist Nicholas David. Duane’s opening set will find Dickey Betts’ son aided by guitarist Johnny Stachela and Devon’s rhythm section.
Each club/theater show will begin with a 30-minute set from Duane Betts & Co. Then, The Devon Allman Project will play a one-hour set that will include songs from Honeytribe, Royal Southern Brotherhood, The Devon Allman Band and choice covers. As mentioned, the concerts will culminate with all eight musicians joining forces for Allman Brothers tunes and other classics as part of a 30+ minute encore.
After a few festival appearances, the tour starts in earnest in Old Saybrook, Connecticut on April 17. The Devon Allman Project with special guest Duane Betts then closes out April with performances in Boston, Jim Thorpe, Westhampton Beach, Plymouth, Homer, New York City, State College, Charlotte, Phenix City, Atlanta and Tybee Island.
The May portion of the tour includes stops in Charleston, Asheville, New Orleans, Knoxville, Nashville, Macon, Boca Raton, Tucson, Simi Valley and Las Vegas. A July run finds the ensemble visiting Colorado, Long Island and Scranton before a few stateside shows in August before the tour heads to Europe.
