When your dad and his brother and most of his friends are musical legends, the pull of the stage is in your blood. Devon Allman answered the call with a punk band at age 13, and by the time he forged a relationship with his famous dad, Gregg, at 17, he was a skilled guitarist in his own right. “I did not grow up studying the Duane [Allman] licks and knowing my dad’s catalog,” Devon told Rolling Stone. “I liked heavy metal. I liked the Cure and the Smiths. I loved blues.” His new six-piece band, The Devon Allman Project with special guest Duane Betts, pays tribute to his family legacy and showcases his 26-year career as a singer, songwriter, and guitarist.

Thursday, October 4. $22-25, 8pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
