Hey y’all- We don’t love the direction these COVID numbers are heading, and it turns out neither do our friends in The Allman Betts Band. So as promised we are going to pump the brakes a little. See this post from the band, and we will keep you posted on further updates.
Yesterday we posted a short tour of the Southeast scheduled for August 4th to 23rd. A few weeks ago (when our team was in the planning stages for this) numbers of COVID were down, places were re-opening, and it looked promising as venues were booking live music again. Now with COVID numbers drastically rising, we have no choice to cancel our August run and reschedule what we can to the future. We are sorry for any inconvenience and we’ll be back out there touring as soon as it’s safe for all.
The Allman Betts Band & Team.

The sons of Gregg Allman (Devon Allman) and Dickey Betts (Duane Betts) have joined forces to form The Allman Betts Band. The show features new music, songs from their solo projects and classic Allman Brothers and Gregg Allman tunes in honor of the 50th Anniversary of The Allman Brothers Band. Their debut album, released on June 28, 2019, was recorded at the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studios and produced by Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, John Prine and Elvis Presley). Former Allman Brothers Band keyboardist and current Rolling Stones keyboardist, Chuck Leveall, and former Greg Allman Band Hammond B3 player, Peter Levin, both guested on the record. ABB’s sophomore effort was also recorded at Muscle Shoals with Matt Ross-Spang producing and it is due out in the early summer of 2020. The Allman Betts Band includes Devon Allman, Duane Betts, Berry Oakley Jr. (son of original Allman Brothers Band bassist Berry Oakley), Johnny Stachela on slide guitar, John Ginty on Hammond B3 (Robert Randolph/Dixie Chicks) and Devon Allman Project percussionists R. Scott Bryan (Sheryl Crow) and John Lum. Additionally, Brotherhood of Light, the “original San Francisco psychedelic show” is providing visuals and lighting for the evening. Brotherhood of Light has worked with The Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Led Zeppelin and The Who among others.
