Fans are expected to line the procession route from Snow's to the cemetery. Allman died May 27 at his home near Savannah, Georgia, at age 69.

Allman's manager, Michael Lehman, said he died peacefully and surrounded by loved ones after a recurrence of liver cancer. Allman's bluesy vocals and soulful touch on the Hammond B-3 organ helped propel The Allman Brothers Band to superstardom and spawn Southern rock.
