Damon Fowler to perform at Seven Seas Bait and Tackle’s Dock Party this Sunday

By Staff | Mar 13, 2018

Damon Fowler, who will be accompanying Dickey Betts (Allman Brothers co-founder) on lead guitar starting in May, will appear at Seven Seas Bait and Tackle’s March 18 Dock Party.

Fowler has spent much of the past year touring with his band Southern Hospitality but is now back with his third solo project for the blues label Blind Pig Records. Fowler recorded several critically and commercially successful albums for Blind Pig Records as a solo artist and with Southern Hospitality before joining Butch Trucks and now Betts.

Fowler, a former Anna Maria Island resident, became a member of Butch Trucks and the Freight Train Band in 2015. Betts was reportedly impressed by Fowler with his slide and lap steel guitar skills so much he was asked to join Betts in May with a concert in Macon City Auditorium in Georgia.

Betts and the Allman Brothers Band are known for such hits as “Ramblin’ Man,” “Jessica” and “Blue Sky.” The Allman Brothers Band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995.

At the March 18 dock party, Fowler is expected to perform numbers from his albums: “Sounds of Home,” “Southern Hospitality Easy Livin’,” “Devil Got His Way,” “Sugar Shack,” “Roots and Branches,” “Live at Skippers Smoke House” and “Riverview Drive.”

Amazon reviewers of his most recent album say: “He (Fowler) is awesome and worth the time and effort to purchase”; “I have seen him with Southern Hospitality and absolutely love that band, but this cd is amazing”; “I own all the albums he has put out and this one is just the best!!!”

Fowler will be performing at “Another Frock Dock Party” on the islands this Sunday, March 18, from 1-5 p.m.

“I encourage people to come by boat,” said Frock, Seven Seas Bait and Tackle owner. “There’s very little parking and this is a great excuse to get out on the beautiful waters of Pine Island and Matlacha.”
