Welcome to my site. For those of you who don’t know me, here’s a brief introduction. I’m a Kansas City musician and a former U.S. Army Band musician. My primary instruments are drums, vocals, and guitar.
I provide several music services. These include live music as well as private guitar and drum lessons.
Brad played at the rehersal dinner for our son’s wedding. The groom requested pop/rock and the bride a little bit country! Very nice mix and range of songs – older with a mix of more recent songs. Great entertainment, made the event that more special!” Brett Roberts, Raymore, MO
Kansas City Bands And Musicians
I provide various live music services, depending on the venue and client needs. This can include a full band, or a solo performance.
Kansas City Solo Musician
I do lots of solo performances with acoustic guitar and vocals in and around the Kansas City area. Depending on the venue I’m performing in, I perform my own tunes, or a mixture of original tunes and popular songs ranging from jazz tunes by Herbie Hancock to modern tunes by Jack Johnson.
The genres I perform include jazz, funk, folk, rock, country and latin. Some of the influences for my original music include Paul Simon, Bill Frisell, John Scofield, Jim Croce and James Taylor.
Kansas City Bands
I offer two bands for Kansas City area events – a jazz band and a variety dance band.
The Brad Allen Jazz Trio And Quartet
The Brad Allen Trio consists of Rob Whitsitt, guitar, Seth Lee, bass, and myself on drums and vocals. Occasionally we ad a horn or 2 to the group. This group performs jazz, blues, funk, swing, etc. We also venture into the jam band genre, performing original compositions as well as our own versions of Beatles tunes, etc. More information on The Brad Allen Trio And Quartet.
Missouri Wine Band
