Above: Syracuse's Funk N waffles Downtown from the Stage.As usual, Devon Allman shreaded his guitar this past week when he performed an intimiate show at Syracuse's Funk N Waffles downtown. The bar atmosphere provided a perfect recipe for the Devon Allman Band, who performed infront of a hundred or so people for over two hours.
Funk N Waffles downtown was packed. Blues enthusiests came together to check out Gregg Allman's son again. The Devon Allman Band only recently just played Syracuse at the Bluesfest, and the entire thing was a benefit towards next years festival.
Devon Allman sure can play the blues. With his signed guitar, he wailed for a few hours to the delight of the older crowd infront of him. There were however, some young folks in attendance, and Blues Fest directors were even chatting with them nicely.
It couldn't have been a better venue for Devon Allman.
'Syracuse always takes good care of us,' he proclaimed, commenting on how great the crowd was several times throughout the show. This might have been a nod towards last time he was here when the crew got a lil toasty partying at Dinasour Barbeque after Bluesfest.
Devon played some great cover songs as the night wore on, including 'No Woman No Cry' by Bob Marley and two Allman Brothers tunes. He does a good job performing his father's music, although 'One Way Out' was a tad bit better than his acoustic 'Sweet Melissa earlier' on in the show.
Overall, blues fans weren't dissapointed from a great musician this past week who's personality matched well with how good the concert was overall
