Dickey Betts, a founding member of the Allman Brothers, will be appearing in the Showroom of Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York on January 9th. Betts will be accompanied by his band Great Southern and gracing the audience with their unique blend of southern rock, bluegrass, and country music.
Dickey Betts was inducted into the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and in 2011 was named #61 on Rolling Stone magazines’ list of top 100 guitarists of all-time. Betts wrote many Southern Rock classics such as “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed”, “Blue Sky”, “Jessica”, as well as the Allman Brothers most commercially successful hit, “Ramblin’ Man”.
Dickey Betts will be joined on stage by his son, Duane Betts, named after Duane Allman who passed away in 1971. Duane Allman and Dickey Betts redefined how two guitars could co-mingle in a band when the Allman Brothers were formed in 1969. Those guitar exchanges between the two masters were legendary. Duane Betts’ guitar skills stand on their own merit and along side his father, you can expect harmonic guitar work reminiscent of those first heard decades ago.
