With a last name like Allman, this son of the famous Gregg had almost impossible musical shoes to fill. What's more, Devon chose to ply his guitar trade in more or less the same genre — blues rock — as his dad. Luckily, Devon possesses pretty good chops as both an axman and a bandleader in his own right and has carved out his own subgenre niche. Though his throaty wail and swampy leanings take a page from the Allman Brothers Band, with Honeytribe, he favors a loose, funky, rambling sound that's made him a favorite on the jam-band circuit.
