Michael Allman and the Marshal Brothers
March 1st at 9pm

846 Lincoln Road
Miami Beach, FL
Michael Allman, Greg Allman’s son, backed by the Marshal Brothers will perform.
Michael Allman is the eldest son of Southern Rock Legend Gregg Allman. That doesn’t mean that his musical path has been paved with gold. Born in Daytona Beach, Florida, he led the â€œMichael Allman Bandâ€ throughout most of the 1990’s before he traded it in for the serenity of domestic life. It was during this period that he faced his greatest obstacle, testicular cancer in 2002. After a full recovery, Michael decided to give music another attempt and in mid 2007 began singing and writing again. In 2008 he started recording his debut CD. During that year he kept busy while working on his CD, by making over 100 guest appearances with many different bands and musicians from coast to coast. In January 2009 he formed the â€œAllman-Tyler Bandâ€ w/ guitarist Tony Tyler.
After the Spring 2009 ATB tour, he went back to work on his debut CD. In the Fall of 2009, he completed and released â€œMichael Allmanâ€™s Hard Labor Creekâ€ on his own All-Skinn Music Group label. With an almost ghostly likeness to his father, his world-weary voice and sheer power of the music seeps into your soul and you realize this is the real thing. Allman is planning a Spring 2010 U.S. Tour to support the CD with songs like â€œCircus Full of Clownsâ€, â€œIf Dreams Were Moneyâ€ and the unique â€œ Mule Named Whiskeyâ€ that will make everyone, young and old want to dance.
