Hailed by star drummer Bob French as “the new coming of his era,” Allen recently snapped up a 2008 Big Easy Award for best emerging artist and plans to exceed the expectation with a forthcoming release which promises a musical arrangement that breaks the mold of conventional brass.
Allen's freshman CD "Meet me On Frenchman Street" took a modern approach to traditional Jazz and produced an instant classic with the title track. But Allen doesn't stop there.
His rock/funk/hip-hop band, The Underdawgs is set to release their debut CD in April of 2009, aptly entitled, "Box Who In?" A bold statement against being categorized under any one genre, the widely anticipated release promises a radical departure from Frenchman Street and takes listeners back to where Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis left off.
Profetic Calaveras (winner of Battle of the Bands Night one at the ACT!) are a Latin-Funk-Fusion trio. Since 2016, the band's main focus has been to spread positive energy and light. Originally formed in Tyler, Texas and currently based out of Durango, Colorado, the progressive group has been described as an eclectic mix of sounds inspired by Santana, Vulfpeck, Khrangbin, and more.
