Devon Allman (L) and Duane Betts

The sons of Gregg Allman (Devon Allman) and Dickey Betts (Duane Betts) , who have joined forces to form the Allman Betts Band, have announced more 2019 concerts and a brief update on their debut album. On Dec. 3, 2018 they announced that they completed recording the album. At the time, it was to be self-titled. A March 11 announcement offers a new name, Down to the River, coming this summer.

The tour includes many festivals and 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, originally slated to be released in the spring, was produced by Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, John Prine and Elvis Presley).

The new ABB will include Devon, Duane, Berry Duane Oakley (son of original Allman Brothers Band bassist Berry Oakley), slide guitar virtuoso Johnny Stachela, keyboardist John Ginty, and DAP percussionists R. Scott Bryan (Sheryl Crow) and John Lum. Peter Levin (Gregg Allman’s Hammond B3 player) and Chuck Leavell (former Allman Brothers Band keyboardist and current Rolling Stones keyboardist) also appear on the record.

The band’s first performance on March 26 is 50 years, to the date, after The Allman Brothers Band first jammed in Jacksonville, Florida.

In the March 11 announcement, Allman said: “It’s a new band and new transition for us to go from being brothers to being band mates. We have natural organic chemistry that exists concurrently alongside our legacy and roots. This band stands on its own abilities. I’m so stoked to crank the amps and bring the music to the people.”

Betts added: “It means so much to us to be able to put this record out and play these songs live for the people. We’ve put in a lot of hard work and this is just the next natural step in what hopefully will be a long journey.”
