Allman-Betts Band
« on: December 05, 2018, 10:31:03 PM »
Devin Allman and Duane Betts, sons of Allman Brothers Band members Greg Allman and Dickie Betts respectively, have formed a new band called the Allman Betts Band, which also includes Berry Oakley Jr (son of Allman Brothers original bassist Berry Oakley SR) along with slide guitarist Johnny Stachela, and a double percussion tandem of R. Scott Bryan and John Lum. Former Allman Brothers band keyboardist Chuck Leavell, and former Greg Allman Band keyboardist Peter Levin perform keyboards on the soon to be released debut album.


Allman Betts Band Finish Album and Announce Tour
http://www.antimusic.com/

The Allman Betts Band have announced that they have finished recording their debut album and will be hitting the road next spring for their first world tour.

They recorded their debut album at Muscle Shoals Sound Studio with producer Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, John Prine and Elvis Presley) and expect to release the effort in the spring of next year. A studio video can be seen here.

Devon had this to say, "What an honor to make a record at Muscle Shoals Sound Studio. It was very important to me to make a 100% analog recording on 2 inch tape to try and evoke the vibes of the records we grew up with. To do that in such a historic place is so profound to us. Also, producer Matt Ross-Spang is a longtime friend and the perfect cat to help our vision. There's some classic 70's rock feels, some RnB, some Texas, some Nashville....soulful Americana, with teeth. We are stoked to share it with the world in Spring 2019."

Duane added, "I'm very proud of this record. The song always ignites the flame, the connection to the listener and I feel like we have accomplished that. What an honor it was to record in Muscle Shoals, a place so rich in musical history and to work with Matt Ross-Spang who shared the same vision as Devon and I. We are very excited to share with everyone soon!"

The Allman Betts Band will be kicking off their world tour on March 28th in Torrington, CT at the Warner Theatre. Devon is currently on the road and joined by Betts as a special guest. See all of the dates below:
