Gregg Allman & The Steve Miller Band To Headline The 15th Annual Doheny Blues Festival

Celebrating the 15th year of Blues On The Beach in Southern California, Omega Events is proud to announce that Grecc Allman and THE Steve Miller Band will headline the Doheny Blues Festival on May 19 & 20, 2012.

As founding member & vocalist for pioneering Southern rockers The Allman Brothers Band, GREGG ALLMAN'S soulful voice is one of the defining sounds in American music history. Long considered an interpreter of blues music, Allman released Low Country Blues this year, his seventh solo recording and first in more than 13 years, earning a GRAMMY Nomination in the category of Best Blues Album.

One of rock music's all-time greats, The STEVE MILLER BAND have sold more than 30 million records in a career spanning 40 years. Miller developed his trademark blues-rock sound with his first band - the Goldberg Miller Blues Band - where he learned alongside Muddy Waters and Paul Butterfield. His newest album, Let Your Hair Down, isa set of blues covers featuring the last recordings of harmonica virtuoso Norton Buffalo.

Joining Gregg Allman and The Steve Miller Band are Chicago Blues Legend BUDDY GUY, Texican rockers LOS LONELY BOYS, TROMBONE SHORTY & Orleans Avenue from NOLA, roots artist and conservationist TAB BENOIT, Texas Blues guitarist JOHNNY WINTER and Irish-born vocalist IMELDA MAY. Many more artists will be announced in the coming weeks.

Beginning January 20, Weekend Passes will go on-sale, while supplies last. Single-Day tickets will go on-sale in mid-March, and General Admission tickets will be sold at ticket outlets in April.
