Devon Allman Project with Duane Betts :: 4.29.18 :: Masquerade :: Atlanta

The Devon Allman Project featuring special guest Duane Betts continued an extensive world tour in front of an eager and devoted crowd at the Masquerade in Atlanta on Sunday night. Walking into the venue the vibe was immediately apparent, people were smiling everywhere you looked and were ready for the music to begin. Though the past year has been extremely difficult for the entire extended Allman Brothers Band community, Devon Allman voiced his appreciation for all the love and support his family has received.

Duane Betts opened the show joined by guitarist Johnny Stachela and members of The Devon Allman Project for a six-song set that began with “Downtown Runaround” off his new EP, Sketches Of American Music. Later in the performance, Duane led covers of “Sweet Virginia” by The Rolling Stones and the fitting “Hot ‘Lanta.” A short acoustic set followed that saw Devon emerge to duet on the Grateful Dead’s “Friend Of The Devil” and more. Then, the Devon Allman Project took the stage for a set consisting of songs from Devon’s time with Honeytribe, the Royal Southern Brotherhood and The Devon Allman Band as well as a handful of choice covers.

The Devon Allman Project features Devon on guitar and vocals along with bassist Justin Corgan, guitarist Jackson Stokes, keyboardist Nicholas David and drummers/percussionists John Lum and R. Scott Bryan. Duane joined in for a bevy of Allman Brothers Band repertoire favorites including “Seven Turns,” “Blue Sky,” “Dreams” and an absolutely stunning and poignant rendition of “Multi-Colored Lady.” Sunday’s concert concluded with a rowdy “One Way Out.” As Gregg used to sing, “The road goes on forever” and there will be plenty of opportunities to see The Devon Allman Project with special guest Duane Betts over the coming months.
