The Devon Allman Band

About Devon Allman’s Honeytribe

Devon Allman’s Honeytribe represents a new generation of blues rock practitioners.  It was only natural that Devon, son of the Allman Brothers Band’s Gregg Allman, form his own band in the great southern rock tradition of his dad and uncle.  Handling lead vocals and guitar for the St. Louis-based trio, he’s joined by George Potsos on bass and drummer Gabriel Strange.

The group’s first album, released in 2006, was “Torch” and established the band a force to be reckoned with, irrespective of its leaders DNA.  It was recorded at Ardent Studios in Memphis (Devon: “the place where the ZZ Top and Stevie Ray Vaughn records were made”) and was followed late last year with the release of “Space Age Blues.” The new album, also recorded at Ardent,  features Huey Lewis guesting on harmonica and is  a loosely scripted concept album where, according to Devon, “Darth Vader meets B.B. King.”



What Passengers Think

I made 33 concerts this trip, and my wife had to miss a few. We had to miss quite a few meals to make all the concerts, but it was worth it. Also made 3 photo ops. Coming from Alaska we seldom get the chance to see a concert much less 33 in 3-1/2 days. My rating is still the same, on a scale of 1 to 10, RLC is a 100 (yes, one hundred). Thank you Pam, may you rock on for many more cruises.

Will & Cindy Godbey, NON STOP ROCK Will & Cindy Godbey, NON STOP ROCK

This was our first RLC, we REALLY wanted to do this one because of Uriah Heep and The Circle. The fact that Steppenwolf, Blue Oyster Cult, and Bad Company were on it also just sweetened the pot. It was our first time seeing Todd Rundgren, Gary Hoey, Quiet Riot, Artimus Pyle and Elvin Bishop, who were all great! We caught parts of some of the other bands and unfortunately some not at all. We didn’t leave the ship at all because there just too much GREAT music!
The artist we met were all very nice. Loved the Meet and Greets. And now we have new bands to follow.
My only complaints ( and they wouldn’t stop my husband and I from returning) were the saving of the chairs with towels, and the staff in the buffet room seemed ill equipped to handle the crowds, which were predictable. Also, I thought the buffet room should have had longer daytime hours, that would have helped with tables not available. But we weren’t there for the food or the destination. We were there for the non stop music. Gary Hoey and the All Star Jam was the best surprise, we didn’t move for 3 hours, didn’t want to miss a second of that great show. Gary was a terrific host.
We will be back! Oh and fun swag too!
