After a successful year touring as The Devon Allman Project with special guest Duane Betts, the sons of Gregg Allman and Dickey Betts are joining forces to form The Allman Betts Band.
The new ABB includes Devon Allman, Duane Betts, Berry Oakley Jr. (son of original Allman Brothers Band bassist Berry Oakley), Johnny Stachela (slide guitar) and Devon Allman Project percussionists R. Scott Bryan (Sheryl Crow) and John Lum.

They will kick off 2019 with a new Allman Betts Band album and a Worldwide tour that will feature 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. The new album, slated for release in the Spring of 2019, will be recorded at the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studios and will be 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 Leavell will guest on the new album with Peter Levin (Gregg Allman's keyboardist) handling keyboard duties for the rest of the record.

The Allman Betts Band will launch a World Tour in March and perform throughout 2019 at festivals, theaters and historic venues.

Devon Allman was superb last time he was at Bluesfest (saw him every one of the five times he appeared). This would be a great act for them to get........and the timing seems about right.

I saw these Duane sit in with Devons band many years ago in a small cub near Sarasota on a Monday night when we were recovering from a few days at Waneee where we had been celebrating the Allmans 40th, and they played well together, and have had many years of practice since then and I would expect them to be very good.

The band line up looks pretty good to me, brig em on.

Couldn't agree more. He was great.

I know that he loves Bluesfest and really wants to come and play.
