Gregg Allman and the Steve Miller Band Headlining Doheny Blues Fest
This is for all you midnight tokers: Omega Events announced today that Gregg Allman and the Steve Miller Band are headlining the Doheny Blues Festival 2012 for the festival's 15th anniversary. The two blues legends epitomize the festival's roots, and it's extra exciting because Georgia native Greg Allman hasn't played a California date in years. The Steve Miller Band also doesn't play festivals very often--and now we're going to see "The Joker" live in the sun! Sweet.
The Allman Brothers Band were just announced as Lifetime Achievement Award winners for the Grammys. Buddy Guy, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, Los Lonely Boys, Johnny Winter, Imelda May are all performing at the festival, to be held at Doheny State Beach on May 19 and 20.
