The world has changed drastically since February 2020, especially for the live music industry.

Over two years later, rock musician, Devon Allman, son of The Allman Brothers Band founder, Gregg Allman, will be making his return to the Town Ballroom on Wednesday, March 9 for the first time since his last tour before the Covid-19 pandemic.

Despite the uncertainty in the world of touring, Allman remained flexible by performing livestream and drive-in concerts as a solo artist and with the Allman Betts Band.

“We just had to roll with the punches. I think we were as shocked as everyone that the world came to a standstill,” Allman said in an exclusive interview with The Record.

The other big difference from two years ago is the band Allman will be taking the Town Ballroom stage with.

After The Allman Betts band announced their hiatus in January, Allman decided to fulfill the dates with his band, The Devon Allman Project.

“I’m excited to play songs from my back catalog. I did eight records prior to putting The Allman Betts band together, so it’s nice to revisit some old jams for sure,” he said.

Allman says that he remembers both the chicken wings and the “rowdy audience” from his previous stop in Buffalo. He looks forward to performing in front of crowds once again.

“Buffalo has always been such a great stop for me,” he said. “There’s just nothing like the energy and dynamic of being altogether in a packed venue. It’s magic.”

The Samantha Fish Band and River Kittens will kick off the evening.
