Devon Allman (L) and Duane Betts, who play Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, Florida on Nov. 28, 2022.
A lot of us didn’t know that the Allman Betts Band was going on hiatus following its rollicking GMF gig earlier this year.
Don’t worry though, Devon Allman and Duane Betts don’t hate each other or anything. They just wanted to focus on their own respective solo projects, and continuing to establish themselves as artists that aren’t just known as Gregg Allman and Dickey Betts’ offspring.
But one thing that brings the boys together every year is the Allman Family Revival, originally a one-night-only celebration of Gregg’s 70th birthday in 2017, a few months after he died.
