On August 12, 2017 after spending much of the summer off the road, Devon Allman, former leader of Royal Southern Brotherhood and Devon Allman’s Honeytribe, reignited his career with an appearance at an all-star tribute to his father Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks at Peachfest (an Allman Bros. curated festival in the Northeast U.S.). Chuck Leavell, Jaimoe, Duane Betts, Marc Quinones, Peter Levin, Oteil Burbridge, Dave Schools and many others participated in the special tribute.

The Devon Allman Project with special guest Duane Betts (son of Dickey – former member of Dawes and Great Southern) first kicked off their 2018 World Tour with a very special show at the Fillmore in San Francisco on December 8, 2017. The Fillmore show featured guest appearances by Luther and Cody Dickinson (North Mississippi All-Stars), Samantha Fish, Jimmy Hall (Wet Willie, Jeff Beck, Hank Williams Jr.), Bobby Whitlock (Derek & The Dominos, Dr. John, Rolling Stones ) and long-time Gregg Allman keyboardist, Peter Levin, will act as the musical director.
On the forthcoming UK tour, The Devon Allman Project welcomes special guest Duane Betts. Each night will feature a set of Duane’s originals, Devon Allman originals, Royal Southern Brotherhood and Honeytribe songs along with an encore set including Allman Brothers songs with Devon, Duane and special guests participating.
On September 7, 2017, ahead of kicking off the 2018 World Tour, Devon participated in an event at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles with multiple Grammy winning producer, Don Was, Scott Sharrard (Gregg’s Musical Director) and Gregg’s long-time manager, Michael Lehman.
Just two days later, on September 9, Devon accepted the key to the city of Macon at the historic Big House Museum on his father’s behalf. The Mayor proclaimed December 8th Gregg Allman Day.
Not even a week later, there was yet another event and performance at the Americana Music Fest on September 15 with Buddy Miller, Joan Osborne, Pony Bradshaw, and John Paul White (Civil Wars).
Additionally, Devon joined The Gregg Allman Band at the Laid Back Festival (Gregg Allman estate curated event) in Atlanta on October 14. The band performed songs from Gregg’s final album, Southern Blood, followed by a handful of Allman hits led by Devon.
A series of lengthy accomplishments have entitled Devon to take his own place in the Southern Rock pantheon.
His remarkable resume spans almost two decades, from his post-millennial breakout with Honeytribe, and the widely revered super group Royal Southern Brotherhood. Devon has also had occasion to jam with the greats such as Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Mr. Les Paul, Keith Urban, Gov’t Mule and Lynyrd Skynyrd just to name a few.
Through his run of successful solo albums, Turquoise was highly regarded by USA Today: “Turquoise is reflective and soulful”; while Ride or Die hit #1 on the Billboard Blues Charts. Devon is also a contributing writer to Guitar Player Magazine as well as serving on the Board of Directors for the National Blues Museum in St. Louis, Missouri.
