Today, the music world mourns the loss of one of its most distinctive voices and influential figures, Forrest Richard "Dickey" Betts, who passed away peacefully at his home in Osprey, Florida. At 80 years old, Dickey leaves behind a musical heritage that is both profound and exhilarating. As a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band, his contributions transcended the Southern Rock genre, impacting the vast landscape of American music.

Prepare to embark on a mesmerizing journey through the golden era of psychedelic blues and the seeds of the 'jam band' scene as Live Dead and Brothers take the stage. Comprising actual and legacy members from the extended Grateful Dead and Allman Brothers families, this exceptional ensemble is set to revive the timeless magic of the late 1960s and early 1970s, bringing fans an experience like no other.

“Best Damn Band We’re Ever Gonna Hear.”

The Allman Betts Family Revival's 7th year has proven to be a massive success and has seen multiple sold-out performances including an epic night at The Beacon Theatre in New York City. Earlier this week the tour celebrated Dickey Betts' 80th birthday in Sarasota, complete with a gold-top Les Paul guitar cake. The tour will roll through Spartanburg, SC, Nashville, TN, Mobile, AL, and will wrap up in Austin, TX on December 17.

Throughout the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND’s 45-year existence, each live performance holds relevance. While band members left, joined, or passed on, the remaining constant has always been the band’s ability to light up any stage. On April 7, 1972, the Allman Brothers Band was invited to perform at Manley Field House on the campus of Syracuse University.

On this special day, December 8th, 2023, we at Grateful Web join the chorus of voices celebrating the birthday of Gregg Allman, a titan in the realm of Southern Rock and a musical visionary whose impact resonates through generations.

The Allman Betts Family Revival is thrilled to announce the latest round of special guest additions for the 2023 tour. Newly announced guests include Ghalia Volt and Mattie Schell, plus Mike Zito has been added to the tour kickoff on Nov 25 in St. Louis, MO, and Sierra Ferrell will join the Revival on Dec 15 at The Ryman in Nashville, TN.

Renowned for their rousing and mesmerizing live performances, THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND is releasing their critically acclaimed live album Down In Texas ’71 as a limited edition 2-LP “Yellow Rose of Texas” colored disc set today, November 17, exclusively through retailer Barnes & Noble.

The Allman Betts Family Revival is thrilled to announce the second round of special guests for the 2023 tour. Newly announced guests include Chuck Leavell (The Allman Brothers, The Rolling Stones) guitar wizard Greg Koch, J.D. Simo, Vaylor Trucks, Melody Trucks, and Frank Hannon (Tesla).
