Futuristic Blues: Devon Allman's Honeytribe Band @Bangkok Blues

For those of us in the Washington DC area, Friday December 10th provides us with a unique opportunity to witness four of our favorite blues and americana acts. For those in the city, Eli Cook brings his Eli's Double-Barrel Blues Show to the quirky Madam's Organ.  And on the other side of Northwest D.C.,two of our favorite bands, Railroad Earth and Hackensaw Boys are playing together at Nightclub 9:30. We have video clips of both bands over at MyJoogTV and we will be releasing an episode soon with the Hackensaw Boys Live at  Veritas Vineyards.

But, even with these temptations to head into the city, we are staying close to home in the burbs, since a little, local blues joint, Bangkok Blues landing a heavy weight - Devon Allman’s Honeytribe. The band is fronted by Gregg Allman's son Devon and includes George Potsos on bass and Gabriel Strange on drums. The trio released a new CD this fall titled Space Age Blues - Devon Allman's Honeytribe which also contains appearances by Huey Lewis on harmonica and Ron Holloway on tenor saxophone.  Here's how Allman describes the new CD - see you at Bangkok Blues:

"Anyone gets a debut record, but with your sophomore record it's time to go from the sand box to the beach," Allman was quoted at NAMM show in Anaheim, CA while debuting his signature "Devon Allman" amp with Fuchs Audio Technology. "I really envisioned a futuristic blues, sort of a Darth Vader meets could piss off the purists but I really just hope at the end of the day, people enjoy listening to where the blues can go once it's out of it's typical I,IV,V pattern....I mean, I'm totally down with the I, IV, V ...let's just twist it up a bit and sprinkle some cosmic dust on it, man." "I think there's some classic sounds on this record that I'm very pleased with , you'll hear a lil' Floyd , a lil' Zeppelin, there's a gospel number and even a ballad with a string's pretty diverse and way vibey, it's definitely a night time record"
