Let's meet in front of Aspen Street Coffee(Fruita) at 7:00. The Band starts at 7:30.
Here's some info I found on the Band.
THE ALLENS released their debut album, to a sold out Aeolian Hall crowd, and the disc was dubbed #3 on the London Free Press TOP 10 releases of 2012. It also won the Local Album of the Year award on 94.9 CHRW for 2012!
From humble beginnings on high school and small town stages, this band from the forest city has exploded into Ontario’s most respected venues.
Rich vocal harmonies, blue-collar lovesick anthems, and a frenetic stage presence are what you can expect from an ALLENS show. If one can imagine Johnny and June training for the Olympics and being coached by the E Street Band, then they may be starting to envision THE ALLENS at work.
Produced by DEREK DOWNHAM (SERENA RYDER / THE BEAUTIES) and featuring Canadian legend RON SEXSMITH, their debut release shows the makings of a ROOTS/ROCK outfit that Canada can be proud of.
THE ALLENS are set to pack the van, hit the road and introduce themselves to the rest of Canada and beyond. With their beloved hometown growing smaller in the rearview mirror, the world had better be prepared to dance along.
“Nobody produces better roots rock and woe in these parts than the Allens […]With a strong dose of partying desperation and rockabilly romance, [they’re] moody, thoughtful and as textured as moss on bark. ”
James Reaney, The London Free Press. Dec[masked]
"I'm always impressed when I see an opening band play for a packed room of strangers, lose themselves in their music, and incite a standing ovation and encore. That's not supposed to happen. I've seen them do it on more than one occasion. The Allens are the real deal."
- Derek Downham of The Beauites (Six Shooter Records)
