Allman Brothers Heritage Carries On With The Allman Betts Band

By: KANE-O!

November 7, 2018

The year 2019 will mark the 50th anniversary of the formation of the Allman Brothers Band, one of the most beloved musical outfits ever. The legacy of the band, its players, and their music is all but assured. It's fitting then, that the sons of original members Gregg Allman and Dickey Betts will add another chapter to that legacy with the formation of the Allman Betts Band, featuring guitarists Devon Allman and Duane Betts.

For the past year or so, the two men have played together under the banner of The Devon Allman Project with special guest Duane Betts. Now, along with a talented array of other musicians as The Allman Betts Band, they'll release a new album in the spring of 2019 and follow it with an extensive tour. (see itinerary below)

In addition to their own original (and solo) music, the band plans to feature works by The Allman Brothers Band and solo material from the canon of Gregg Allman. In addition to Allman and Betts, the band includes Berry Oakley Jr., the son of the Allman's original bassist, and one-time Allmans member (and touring pianist for The Rolling Stones) Chuck Leavell.

Before they consolidate forces, though, Messrs: Allman & Betts will continue to tour as The Devon Allman Project with special guest Duane Betts, and will be performing through February before they change the band name.
