The Allman Betts Band will go on hiatus for most of 2022. Led by Devon Allman and Duane Betts, the group will serve as the house band for a series of five rescheduled Allman Family Revival concerts and appear at the Gasparilla Music Festival in February before taking off until Thanksgiving, when the sixth annual Allman Family Revival begins.

“After 3 years of album making, non-stop touring, song writing, globe-trotting, COVID dodging, etc … we are putting The Allman Betts Band on our first hiatus,” stated Devon and Duane in a note on the band’s social feeds. “We are aiming for a return to the stage at the end of 2022 for the 6th annual Allman Family Revival concerts, held between Thanksgiving and Christmas. We look forward to the extra time with family and to embark on some new endeavors.”

The Allman Betts Band formed in 2018. Duane Betts and Devon Allman are joined in the group by bassist and fellow Allman Brothers Band founding member offspring Berry Oakley Jr. as well as keyboardist John Ginty, drummer John Lum, percussionist R. Scott Bryan and guitarist Johnny Stachela. Down To The River, the first The Allman Betts Band studio album, came out in 2019 and was followed by Bless Your Heart in 2020.

While The Allman Betts Band will no longer participate in the Trippin’ Into Spring Tour 2022, The Devon Allman Project took over a bulk of the dates.
