The Allman Goldflies Band stems from the friendship of two lifelong musicians, Gary Allman and David Goldflies.
Gary Allman’s music contains stories from his life, including recent songs that describe Gary’s journey through the United States Criminal Justice system; his pain, loss, and finally, his redemption. These songs, many of which were written in prison, have formed the core of the original music of the Allman Goldflies Band.
David Goldflies, a lifelong musician, distinguished himself at an early age by being a part of multiple acclaimed tours and albums, including his Grammy award-winning tenure with the Allman Brothers Band. David’s visceral understanding of the emotion and drive of authentic southern rock and blues can be heard in both his playing and original music.
The band also includes drummer Shawn “Shack” Shackelford and guitarists Joe Weiss and Matt Siegel.
The Allman Goldflies Band is reinvigorating southern music with honest, hard driving, inspired performances.
Melody Trucks Band
After touring with Butch Trucks and the Freight Train, Melody Trucks immersed herself in the increasingly rich and diverse music scene in Jacksonville, Florida. The Melody Trucks Band came together in early 2017 as she encountered each member within this extended musical family. Their individual styles and influences run the entire span of every music genre: rock, blues, jazz, funk, classical, country, thrash metal, and even world music. This has culminated in fresh and unique interpretations of iconic songs from the genre of Melody's extended family.
