Devon Allman Talks Music, Royal Southern Brotherhood and His Legendary Lineage With Crash

Devon Allman didn’t grow up back stage at Allman Brothers shows despite his father (Gregg) and uncle (Duane) being THE Allman Brothers. Instead, he was raised by his mother in St. Louis. Devon even tried to stay as far away as possible from the type of music that was in his blood, but thankfully, eventually good genes and a lot of hard work won out as he grew into the blues that we all love so much. The Devon Allman Band will be at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Sioux City Thursday (August 14th) as part of the Blues Series.

I got a chance to talk to Devon Wednesday afternoon before the band did a hometown gig. Devon is filling in Thursday night for his other band, The Royal Southern Brotherhood, as bandmate Cyril Neville got pneumonia on their European tour a couple of weeks ago and is under doctors orders to rest. Devon says he’ll be fine, but just needed a couple of weeks off the road. So Allman and his band are coming in to play a mixture of Allman originals including songs from his upcoming “Ragged and Dirty” album coming out in October, and likely a couple of Allman Brothers tunes as he has sat in with the band numerous times in the bands 45 year career.

I asked Devon about his inspirations, what brought the Royal Southern Brotherhood together, rumors that he was going to join his dad’s band after Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks announced they were leaving the band, his dad’s health and more. You can listen to the full interview below, plus a video shot in 2012 of Devon covering an Allmans classic.

Tickets are just $5-$15 and are available at this link. This is going to be a smoking show at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Sioux City Thursday night at 8pm.
