Devon Allman Band at StageOne, Fairfield, CT PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   
Devon Allman at StageOne, Fairfield, ConnecticutDevon Allman and his band comprised of Bobby Schneck, Jr. on guitar, Anthony Nanney on drums, Steve Rice on bass, and the "new kid" Brendan Moore on keyboards, rocked the house with their rollicking Southern Blues Rock performance at Fairfield Theatre Company's StageOne in Fairfield, Connecticut.

 


Fairfield Theatre Company's StageOne audience had the pleasure of an all Devon Allman and his band evening, by that we mean that there was no opening act for their performance on July 9, 2015, which was exactly what the fans wanted. Ever the consummate showman, Devon made his entrance from the back of the theatre to the stage playing his guitar while mingling with the audience and from that intimate introduction, the die was cast, the audience pumped, and the evening was off to a rocking start with the opening song, Half the Truth off his latest release, Ragged & Dirty (read the review in the Music Scene section.)

This was our third time seeing Devon Allman perform at Fairfield Theatre Company's StageOne; the first time was March 2013 when he was touring with his band promoting his solo release Turquoise, the second time was August 2013 when he was touring with his Royal Southern Brotherhood band comprised of Devon Allman, Cyril Neville, Mike Zito, Yonrico Scott, and Charlie Wooten, and the third time was July 9, 2015. One thing was abundantly clear at each performance, Devon loves his audiences and his audiences love him right back.

Talented Blues Rock guitarist, singer, songwriter, Devon Allman fueled the audience with his dynamic performance that was easily matched by his band's energy, especially the amazing guitar artistry of Bobby Schneck, Jr., along with Anthony Nanney on drums, Steve Rice on bass, and newcomer Brendan Moore on keyboards.

Throughout the evening, Devon and the band took the audience on an anthology tour playing the cuts Mahalo, No Woman No Cry, and the title track Torch off Devon's Honeytribe band's 2006/2007 Torch release, intermixed with Left My Heart in Memphis off his 2012 release with the band, Royal Southern Brotherhood, which earned a nomination for a 2012 Blues Music Award, as well cuts from his solo releases Turquoise and Ragged & Dirty.

The musical line-up included Can't Lose ‘Em All, Leave The City, and I'll Be Around off his 2014 Ragged & Dirty release, Homesick and Turn Off The World from his 2013 Turquoise release, and Forever Man, and Dangerous rounded out the slate.

When the band returned from a brief intermission, Devon slowed the pace a bit and introduced the song Melissa stating that it was "written by a friend of mine" (aka his dad, Gregg Allman), before launching into the iconic song and had the audience singing along with him. Vintage Rock and Roll continued with the 1971 Led Zeppelin song, Stairway To Heaven, which had the audience on their feet. It was an exciting night of pure musical enjoyment, which is something that we have come to expect from each Devon Allman performance; he is a consummate musician "who delivers the goods" each and every time, and for that we are always appreciative.

"The Fairfield Theatre Company is a nonprofit center for the arts and culture located in the heart of downtown Fairfield, Connecticut. We bring together a community of musicians, actors, artists, writers, fans, and supporters who are dedicated to the simple premise that the broadest spectrum of live entertainment and cultural exchange is essential to the vitality of our society."

Fairfield Theater Company has four venues in Connecticut that attract top talent, StageOne in Fairfield (225 seat venue), their newest venue, The Warehouse at FTC (640 seat venue), The Klein in Bridgeport (1,400 seat proscenium theater), and the Norwalk Concert Hall in Norwalk (1,036 seat venue).

"Established in 2004, StageOne is a 225-seat venue in the heart of downtown Fairfield, Connecticut. Originally built primarily for theatre productions, StageOne is consistently voted as the best place to hear live music in the entire region because of the quality of the sound, the intimacy of the space, and the caliber of the artists. There is literally not a bad seat in the house and there are few venues in the country where the fans can be so close to the world-renowned artists who grace the stage in over 200 concerts and productions a year. The artists love to perform here and frequently cite StageOne as their absolute favorite venue. This brings out the very best in them, which is reflected in the quality of their performances and enjoyment of their fans."

StageOne is conveniently located directly across from the Fairfield Train Station making it easily accessible by car or by train via Metro North. By car, it is a 30-minute drive from Greenwich and New Haven, a 60-minute drive from Hartford, and a 90-minute drive from New York City.
