The Allman Betts Band (from the album Down to the River available on BMG)
After touring with each other’s band, Devon Allman (son of Gregg Allman) and Duane Betts (son of Dickey Betts) saw the future as a co-joined band. The pair called up old friend Berry Duane Oakley (son of Allman Brother original bassist Berry Oakley) forming The Allman Betts Band with a stellar pack of backing musicians, featuring keyboard wizard John Ginty. Bloodlines show in the music that courses through generations of Allman Brothers band players, Down to the Rivermatching the southern vibe in the groove of the title track, trading guitar licks and vocals for “Shinin’”, finding inspiration in a sad memory with the slow burn rock’n’roll glory of “Long Gone” and the unapologetic strut of album opener “All Night”.
As they honor their forebearers, The Allman Betts Band claim their spot on the stage, knocking back haters with honest admissions as they wear attitude on their collective sleeves with “Try” and sinking into the sway of “Good Ol’ Days” as Down to the Rivertenderly tributes Tom Petty with a version of “Southern Accents”.
