Macon is honoring the late Southern rock music legend Gregg Allman on the weekend of his posthumous album release.
A release from Rounder Records announced special events surrounding the release, one of which is in Macon.
On Saturday, September 9, Macon mayor Robert Reichert will issue a proclamation declaring Allman’s birthday – December 8 – Gregg Allman Day.
Allman will then be posthumously honored with a key to the city at the Big House’s ‘Southern Blood’ album release party that evening.
Tickets to the release party are $25 and it goes from 7-11 p.m. at the Big House Museum on Vineville Avenue.
