Welcome to my site. For those of you who don’t know me, here’s a brief introduction. I’m a freelance musician based out of Kansas City, MO. I’m a former U.S. Army Band musician. I’m a multi-instrumentalist. I sing, and play guitar, drums and a bit of bass. I write songs and do some instrumental composition as well.

Solo Performances

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. Some listeners and reviewers have referred to me as a “jam band artist.”

The genres I perform include jazz, funk, folk, acoustic rock, country and latin. Some of the influences for my original music include Paul Simon, Bill Frisell, John Scofield, Jim Croce and James Taylor.

The Brad Allen Trio

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. For more information on The Brad Allen Trio visit our website at http://www.bradallenjazz.com/.



I’ve been teaching guitar lessons in Cass County, MO for many years. I offer lessons to students in Peculiar, Raymore, Belton, Pleasant Hill, and Harrisonville. I currently teach out of my studio in Peculiar, MO.
