Featuring a six-piece band, The Devon Allman Project has toured almost 20 countries across the globe and will close out the Free Summer Concert series Sunday, Sept. 4, at Howelsen Hill.

A singer, songwriter, guitarist, keyboardist and producer, Devon Allman was born in Corpus Christi, Texas, and spent his early years in Texas, Tennessee and St. Louis, Missouri. He was raised by his mother and began playing music at a young age. Then at age 16, Devon first met his father, Gregg Allman.

According to the band, Gregg invited Devon on the road with The Allman Brothers Band during the group’s Dreamstour in 1989, where Devon met Berry Duane Oakley and Duane Betts.

On many occasions, Devon also would sit-in with the Brothers and perform “Midnight Rider” alongside his father.

Throughout his musical career, Devon has played with the likes of powerhouse stars such as Les Paul, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Billy Gibbons, Gov’t Mule, Blackberry Smoke and Lukas Nelson.

He founded Devon Allman’s Honeytribe in 1999, recording two albums and touring off and on over the next decade.

In 2011, Devon paired up with Cyril Neville to form Royal Southern Brotherhood, and they released three albums. At the same time, Devon was also cultivating his solo career.

Devon’s songs have garnered high reviews and landed atop the Billboard, including reaching No. 1 on the Blues chart for 2016’s “Ride or Die.”

In 2017, Devon assembled the Devon Allman Project, commencing a 2018-19 world tour with Betts as a special guest. The run was so successful that he and Betts formed the Allman Betts Band, reuniting with Oakley, and recorded their debut album.

Now, The Devon Allman Project has played at the Peach Festival in Scranton, Pennsylvania, Rock Legends Cruise and festivals in Europe and all over the U.S. The band is led by Devon and includes the two Allman Betts Band drummers, a bass, Hammond B3 organ and piano, and another guitarist.

The group plays songs from The Allman Brothers and Gregg Allman in their sets, as well as Devon’s fan favorite originals and maybe even a few surprise covers. Organizers have gone all-out for the last performance of the free summer concert series, and they are expecting an exceptionally entertaining show.

Eric Delaney & Friends will open for The Devon Allman Project. Gates for the Howelsen Hill Amphitheater open at 5 p.m. Sunday. For more, go to
