Devon Allman and the Honeytribe will perform at Lake Cumberland Grand Prix Race Village
Devon Allman, son of iconic singer/songwriter Gregg Allman of the legendary Allman Brothers Band, will help kick off the Lake Cumberland Grand Prix 2010 on June 4 in Somerset by adding a helping of electrified southern rock and blues to a stellar lineup of entertainment, parties, and special events planned for race weekend as Offshore Super Series (OSS) powerboat racing returns to Lake Cumberland.

 

Blending the soulful vocal style of his father with masterful guitar reminiscent of his uncle, Duane Allman, Devon Allman and his power trio, Honeytribe, will perform a free concert at 7 p.m. at Race Village at The Center for Rural Development, located at Traffic Light 15 just north of the race site at Waitsboro Recreation Area.

 

“We are very excited to have Devon Allman’s Honeytribe performing live at The Center for Rural Development,” Laura Glover, director of sales and events for The Center, said. “It’s a great concert that will help launch three days of racing excitement at Race Village and the race site as the Lake Cumberland Grand Prix takes over Somerset.”


Inspired by music of the Rolling Stones, the Doors, and—of course—the Allman Brothers Band, Devon brought together drummer Mark Oyarzabal and George Potsos on bass to form a powerful trio of musicians and their own unique bluesy, rock and roll sound in the Honeytribe.

 

The band headed back to the studio earlier this year to record its second and newest release, “Space Age Blues.”

 

“We hope to see you here for a fun-filled night of entertainment you won’t want to miss,” Glover said.

 

At Race Village, The Center will be the site for a host of activities leading up to the qualifying heats and Pro-Am racing on June 5 and Lake Cumberland Grand Prix race on June 6. It will also be the site of the closing ceremonies and awards presentation at the conclusion of the final races. Fans will also be able to meet race teams and see the powerboats up close from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. on the June 4 kickoff day at Race Village.

 

In addition to the free Honeytribe performance at 7 p.m., Friday’s opening day for Race Village will also feature a “Parade of Boats” from 6-7 p.m., during which the race teams and their powerboats will be on full display as they head north up U.S. 27 in Somerset from The Center and back again.

 

The race, to be held at Waitsboro Recreation Area—located off U.S. 27 in Somerset just past Traffic Light 29—will feature a challenging nine-turn course and more than 20 boats capable of reaching speeds of up to 200 miles per hour.

 

As preparations continue, the race effort is actively seeking volunteers from across the region who are willing to roll up their sleeves, pitch in, and help with nearly every aspect of the event.

 

Whether those duties include helping keep boats out of the way during race time on the water or simply helping with the parking of cars at designated areas, hundreds of volunteers are being sought to assist with the massive effort.

 

Volunteers and vendors are encouraged to visit the 2010 Lake Cumberland Grand Prix Web site at www.lakecumberlandgrandprix.com to fill out online participation forms, or contact the Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce at 606-679-7323 to sign up for service opportunities and register to participate in the event.
