For over 20 years, Slam Allen has been entertaining audiences with his unique blend of soul and blues. Playing the famous Chitlin’ Circuit as well as performing around the world, Allen’s music and enthusiasm has been shared with thousands of people.
Music is in Allen’s blood. He got his start from his father and uncles who were known as the Allen Brothers Band. Allen carries on the family legacy wherever he goes. His music runs deep. “When I play,” says Allen, “People who may have never heard of me leave the show with a feeling that we’re old friends or family.”
From B.B. King to Otis Redding, Slam has a way of making you feel the soul of the music. It’s often difficult to tell if he’s doing one of his originals or an old blues or soul cover. Regardless, he makes all the music his own.
For the past eight years he has also played an important role as the lead singer and guitarist, in the legendary James Cotton Band.
