Best known for his soulful, distinctive voice, Gregg Allman has enjoyed a lengthy career as a singer-songwriter, keyboardist, and guitarist. A founding member of The Allman Brothers, his long list of accolades range from his induction into the Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame to recognition by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the “100 greatest singers of all time,” to his Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

This week, Gregg Allman will visit South Walton and Destin for a special live performance on the Green at Gulf Place along Hwy 30A on Wednesday, May 28.

“We are thrilled to bring the legendary Gregg Allman to perform for the music loving audiences along 30A and fans from throughout the Southeast,” said Gulf Place Owner John Gaston.

Allman, co-founded The Allman Brothers with his brother, Duane, in 1969. Duane’s tragic death in a motorcycle accident several years later was devastating, but the band continued and released one their most commercially successful albums, “Eat a Peach,” in 1972.

Southern Rock tunes including “Ramblin’ Man,” “I’m No Angel,” and “Midnight Rider” are just part of his remarkable catalogue of original songs. Allman has had seven solo chart-topping albums over his 40 plus year career, including his 2011 Grammy nominated album “Low Country Blues.”

Most recently, Allman received the ultimate tribute when notable musicians, including Vince Gill, Trace Adkins, Martina McBride, John Hiatt, Dr. John and Eric Church, among many others, joined together at the Fox Theater in Atlanta to pay tribute Allman and perform some of his best songs.

The tribute has been released on a new album titled, “All My Friends—Celebrating the Songs and Voice of Gregg Allman.” During the show at Gulf Place, he’ll perform classic Allman Brothers hits as well as some of his blues infused songs off his solo albums, including his most recent, “Low Country Blues.”
