I just found out that Devon Allman’s Honeytribe are playing at the ...

ASTOR THEATRE in DEAL, KENT - Friday June 8th 2007

http://www.astor.freewebspace.com

Now don’t get me wrong, Deal is a lovely little quintessential English seaside town … here is a link to a website describing it …

http://www.scentsandscentsibility.co.uk/deal.htm

BUT … for Devon’s one and only UK date he could not have chosen a more remote location to go to. It would be easier and quicker for the French to come over and see him by boat than for the majority of the population of England to travel to see him!!! On a Friday night it would take at least two hours to get there from London, and from where I am in Reading it would take at least 3 hours, so unless I take the afternoon off work and stay overnight in Deal, then there is no way I can get to see him.

Why oh why is he not playing in London???

Sorry Devon … I would love to come and see you play but your European tour booking agent needs a kick up the A$$ …

DEVON ALLMAN'S HONEYTRIBE

One of the true legendary names of rock music, the Allman Brothers were hugely influential with their innovative Southern rock style of music, the original jam band with legendary shows. Led by guitarist Duane, (who played the wonderful slide guitar solo on Clapton's Layla) and keyboard/singer Gregg (once married to Cher) the band's classic albums included the groundbreaking Beginnings and Eat A Peach.

Now comes Gregg's son, guitarist Devon, with an arsekicking band Honeytribe. Genetics aside, this band will please fans of Santana, BB King, The Black Crowes and Widespread Panic. They’ve played with everyone from The Disco Biscuits to Gov’t Mule (of course they’ve shared the stage with The Allman Bros. Band) and they’ve played everywhere from Colorado to Madrid (and all points in between).

Honeytribe is truly a worldwide tour de force. Allman, whose voice is reminiscent of his father, Gregg, and whose guitar playing calls to mind other guitar gods, has gathered a group of A-list musicians from mid-west America that creates music with heart and soul. “We are truly a brotherhood, I feel ultra honored to share the stage with these cats night in and night out,” says Allman. Mark Oyarzabal (drums), “My right hand playing guitar has been married to Mark’s drum kit for 13 years. He makes me a better player.” George Potsos (bass), “He knows when to rip your head off and knows when to lay back. He totally keeps us in stitches on the road.” Jack Kirkner (keyboards), “My soul brother. Knows just how to work a Hammond B-3 Organ.”

Honeytribe manage to pay respect to the past while crafting a unique blend of sweet noise. The band’s chemistry and inarguable talent make for a rock-n-roll juggernaut. The synergy of this band on stage is something to behold. Shifting from fiery delta blues standards to their own rock-based material, this band inspires all who bear witness to their live performances. Honeytribe has something for all music lovers.

Honeytribe has had a busy year - touring the U.S. and Europe; working on material for their debut CD, Torch, for Atlanta-based label Livewire Recordings; and being featured on a top ten hit in Europe with The Vargas Blues Band.

The band promises to continue touring for the rest of 2007 in both the U.S. and overseas. The band recorded Torch at the legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis, TN between January and May 2006. The album was co-produced by Devon Allman and Pete Matthews (Paul Simon, North Mississippi All Stars). Describing the title track, Allman says, “There comes a point in life where you finally feel like you've dropped the oars in the great river of life. You are no longer fighting the natural flow of things, but trusting and embracing. This song reminds me of the need to stay true to yourself and work your ass off.” It’s this philosophy that ensures this band will be around for a good long time.

Tickets: £16.00 advance, £20.00 door

so are you going, Harvey? wish it was the following month when I would be in England at my sisters' in Kent (sittingbourne). On the upside, looks like one could have a 'themed' wedding there - perhaps with Honeytribe for entertainment!

Hi Colin

I think the have the Astoria in London on hold for the next night based on interest I guess. That's according to tourworks who arrange these things anyway.

Cheers

Ian

Thanks for the info Ian ... I will only just have returned from a vacation in Spain that week so I'm not sure I could make it over to Deal for the weekend ... but the Astoria (or even the dreaded Mean Fiddler) on the Saturday Night would be a much better option for me.

I hope they are not waiting to see how many tickets they sell for the gig in Deal before they add the Astoria in London ... all they are likely to get in Deal are 50 to 100 people whereas they would likely get 500 or so in London.

What on earth possessed someone to promote them out in the sticks of Kent is beyond me ...

Lovely as Deal is ... please see above ... unlikely I will go to Kent ... but if the London gig doesn't happen then I would have to consider it ...

Hello Harvey,

Going a bit off-topic here: where are you going in Spain?
I'm going to Spain myself this summer although a month later.
Going to be much more touristic and crowded than my usual summer holiday
but we want to visit Barcelona a couple of days and it's easy to reach by train
from where we are staying (Magrat de Mar).

Hope you are able to catch some Devon and/or Mule this summer!!!

Cheers

Hi Roger ... I am going to Nerja ... which is about 20 miles up the coast to the east of Malaga ... not one of the major resorts (thank goodness) so it's a good place to explore the Sirra Nevada Mountains from during the day with lots of bistros and wine bars for the evening

I hope I get to see Devon too ... and Gregg may be coming to London also ... but no UK dates for the Mule as yet so I'm not too sure about them.

Barcelona is a great place ... I have been there 3 times ... lots to do ... you will love it

Hey Harvey, It is a pretty odd choice but it looks like it was probably booked at reasonably late notice, and with probably very little flexibility on the date in question. I know a promotor that books the occasional band down there (he's also the same promotor that booked Job Bonamassa in Sutton last year and does the other occasional US musician when they come here), not sure if this one was through him though.

That said, and this is no slight on Devon at all as I've not heard him play or sing, but given how little exposure he's had over here I'd be surprised if he managed to pack the Mean Fiddler on his own, especially on a first trip. Govt Mule, Derek Trucks and Joe Bonamassa to name a few have all done reasonably well recently through exposure in the guitar mag community, an angle that I've yet to see Devon crop up in. The Mule has built up more of a UK following purely through the net and sheer time/word of mouth (although I should still point out that the majority of the crowds near me both times I've seen the mule in the UK were predominantly foreign). The EC connection has been very good to Derek Trucks' exposure over here (although amongst most people I meet at gigs he seems to be better known, a bit inevitably I suppose, as EC's sideman rather than current guitarist in the ABB). As for Joe B. I think it's been sheer chops/technical ability that has helped his exposure here. His first tour he did a few weeks of really small venues not dissimilar to this one in Deal - then on his most recent tour he only did one UK gig, but pretty much sold it out, people coming from all over the country to see him. 2000 people in the Shepherds Bush Empire - it was mobbed!

Anyway it'll be interesting to see how the gig works out for Devon but I have to say I'm not that surprised that he's not playing a bigger scale London venue like the ones you mentioned.

Seeya! Jules

ps I'll be curious where Gregg ends up if this much rumoured London date comes about? If I were a betting man I'd wager the Mean Fiddler again, as per Mule, although you never know, they might aim high and go for the Shepherds Bush? Who knows!

Hi Jules ... I hear exactly where you are coming from with regards to the venue size and you are quite right ... maybe the Borderline Club around the corner from the Astoria / Fiddler (where Joe B played last year) would be better.

My main concern is the geographical locality of Deal, it really is out on a limb and is not somewhere that many fans would travel to. With a poulation of only 25,000 I wouldn't expect a big crowd to turn out. London - population 10 million - has to be the better bet.

With regards to Gregg ... I really hope he doesn't play in the Mean Fiddler ... personally I'd much rather see him at Shepherds Bush, or even Hammersmith Apollo.

Cheers,
Colin.

Somebody has to say it, so........

Deal or No Deal?!!!!

Joe Bonamassa will be back in July. Dates not on official site yet but can be found advertised for Poole, Rythm Festival (http://www.rhythmfestival.net/) and somewhere "oop north" . Expect other dates to follow.

The SBE gig was great. Two support bands, one of them the same as at Borderline last year, which meant JB's set was only about 1 hour 40.

Look forward to hearing about your NYC trip, Colin!

Also after the show with Mule in Germany there is about a weeks worth of dates ..all to be in Germany it appears. Hope this helps.

P.S. We also just signed with our friend Joe Bonamassa's European label...TORCH is expected to come out first week of September or so, probably with a bit of a different song line-up , with a 5 week tour in November / December to follow our October stint at Criteria Studios in Miami to record our Sophomore record.

Thanks very much for the confirmation Devon ... please keep us posted as we would love to see you play over here ... London would be much easier for most of us but if we have to go to Deal then so be it ....

CHEERS,
Colin.

Great news indeed!!!
I'll be at the German show with the Mule and cool to know there will be more dates this summer and in Nov / Dec.
Geez, i wonder if these dates in the autumn are together with Gregg Allman & Friends
since there's a tour rumour for that period !!! .
Already bought TORCH and i love it. Maybe the European version will be a bit longer !
I might be "forced" to buy another copy......
Gonna be a great summer. Plenty of festivals. A triple dose of the Mule.
My first Honeytribe show. Yeehah !!!

Devon, you have to play "Mahalo" otherwise we won't let you of the stage!
(i guess it's a setlist regular anyway). Damn, i love that song.

Devon, will Pedro be joining the band on these dates or has he touring obligations with
DB&GS?

Cheers & Keep rockin'

Bloody hell.....it's getting even better.
I'm going to a festival this summer called Bospop in Weert (only an hour from my hometown; in the South of the Netherlands) and they just added 3 bands to an already mindblowing program. And guess who's playing?
So it's Mule 3 - Devon 2 this summer so far.
Maybe some UK brothers and sisters want to join us at this festival.
Line-up is ridiculous !!!!!! There's not a spot on the program to get a break.
I guess i have to drink, dance, drink, eat, piss, drink, eat, play airguitar and run from
one stage to the other. it's a relaxed festival so i guess that will work out fine and dandy.

Sunday 8 juli (2 stages):

Cake
Devon Allman’s Honeytribe*
Joe Bonamassa
The Yayhoos
Bonnie Raitt*
Eric Sardinas*
Paul Rodgers
Marc Ford
Gary Moore
John Mayall
John Fogerty

* latest additions. Not officially announced yet on the festival website but leaked
elsewhere. Two more bands to be added. Are opening bands so probably are local Dutch
blues or rock bands.

Just to say, I'd come to the Deal date if i drove , but alas no. So, if there was to be a London date i wouldn't be the only one round here who'd be buying tickets .... My vote is .... it's worth doing

My brother and me will be at any London show so that's two more votes!

Hi Devon,
So the European version of Torch will be different? Longer or are you taking stuff out?

Hi Colin and Jules.
