The Allman Betts Band has become popular over the course of the past couple of years and many may be familiar with these last names. The group is led by Devon Allman and Duane Betts. Devon Allman is son of the late Greg Allman, founding member of one of rock’s most iconic bands, The Allman Brothers. Duane Betts, is the son of Dickey Betts also of The Allman Brothers Band fame who wrote the band’s first major hit, “Ramblin’ Man”. Several years ago, the Devon and Duane joined forces and formed The Allman Betts Band. They kicked off their World Tour on March, 2019 and have sold out most of the venues they have played.
Their show consists of musics from their records and plenty of Allman Brothers music to keep people on their feet. Both Devon and Duane have also been members of other bands along the way and they have also released solo albums. However, neither received worldwide recognition until they put together The Allman Betts Band.
