DVD in the works. Nice! Devon gets a nice blurb at the end.

I have seen Devon Allman live three times and I have all his CD output from Honeytribe to RSB and I have never once thought of Eric Clapton while listening to him or watching him play.

I hope it's true about the DVD. I have the Live At Sturgis TV show from AXStv on the DVR and I watch/listen to it often. A full production would be nice to have.

I've seen Devon twice and I never thought of Clapton either, but everyone hears things in different ways. That said, Devon is a smoking hot player!

Gotta chime in. The Macon show last night was SMOKIN' hot!!! Gregg is in good health and is projecting strength not only with his voice, but his enthusiasm at the show was evident. He smiled a lot, joked a bit with the audience ("We're gonna record all this for a DVD, but don't go yellin' 'PLAY ALL NIGHT!' ") and seemed very energized. It is a complete turn around from all he went through, health wise, in 2012. Gregg looked and acted like he was in top form. He was tappin' his foot at the organ and played a lot of guitar out front. Devon came out twice in Gregg's set. Devon gets better every time I hear him play. And to see them exchange hugs at the end of Devon's appearance was very heart warming.

I was glued to the show and only left my seat once which was between set changes (OK, maybe twice. I think I did hit the RR once.) All I could think of during this show was, "If we have this to look forward to if the ABB don't come back after 2014, I'll be able to live with that." Gregg's band is tight, they do jam on solos, maybe not as extended as ABB solos, but his players are all top notch. He played a new song called KEROSINE that I don't recall ever hearing and it was blistering hot! Keep an ear out for that tune. Also, a lot of folks who came to the show in Macon on 12/27 said that last night's show was a much better show than that one, as Gregg may have been suffering from a cold or virus, and he had a lot more energy last night.

I feel VERY fortunate to have been in attendance at the Celebrate Gregg gig in ATL last Friday and the Macon show last night. Despite the uncertainty surrounding the future of The Allman Brothers Band, I think we have a lot of good music to look forward to from its individual members, and for that, I am thankful.

I saw them play Kerosene too. That's a kick ass tune. It's from a Scott Sharrard album. that's funny about the play all night quip. He always seems more relaxed with his own band. I see them every chance I get and I have not once been disappointed. It was a Gregg & Friends show that got my wife interested in the Allman Brothers so I'll always have him to thank for that. It's great that we both want to go now. I'm looking forward to the DVD. I hope it materializes. If Rounder is producing it, there's a solid chance!

Devon is really, really good. I was in front of him at Peach Fest last year and he plays with heart & soul and has the technical skills to match. He just might make a career of it

Thanks, Dave. When I hear it from a certified fan here, then I know it REALLY was a smoking hot show and not just spouting at the mouth from a marginal fan who happens to be a journalist.

Sounds like a great night. I hope that this does come out as a live CD/DVD.

We get teased with stuff like this a lot, hopefully there will be a follow through.

The first time I heard or saw him was about 3 yeras ago, at a small club in Philadelphia. There were about 25 people there. He and his band played high-intensity, freight train blues/rock for at least two hours. I came away mightily impressed. I can guarantee he made 25 fans for life that night.

That seems to be how he's doing it, which I think means good thing for him in the long run. RSB played a free show at Musikfest in Bethlehem, PA 2 years ago and by the end there were tons of people up close to the stage, dancing and cheering and when they broke into "One Way Out" people went nuts.
