Jay Allan is a local singer/songwriter who has entertained us in the past at The Little Courtyard series and we're sooo excited to welcome him back, this time to the Little Pink Trailer!!!
Jay Allan plays what is known to his fans as funky-folk, blues rock. Channeling honest passion and raw emotion through his own life and observations, he continues to gain fans and notoriety locally and nationally. He combines heartfelt and memorable lyrics with genre-bending styles and melodies in his long list of ever-evolving original songs that range from that of joy, love, loss, gratitude and searching and are often outlined with an insightful and sometimes humorous touch. While remaining true to his own roots, Jay often taps into and pays homage to such influences as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, The Black Crowes and far too many artists and songwriters, old and new, to name. You could say Jay relishes in the inspiration brought on by his favorite artists.
Here are some samples of his great talent! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ms26uDNgS5g
We gather for some dinner, a glass of whathaveyou and some laughs and fun at 6pm. I'll put something in the crockpot and make some other tasty treats, salads and stuff. I'll have iced tea, water and perhaps a bottle of wine or two. Feel free to bring a bottle of whatever you like to share.
Then, at 7ish, we gather in the living room for two sets of fantastic, original music from this amazing, accomplished artist. He'll take you to new musical places and share his spirit and love.
Bob and I do this for the love of music and the desire to share with our friends. We believe that it's important for our society to support the arts to maintain some semblance of sanity! In this spirit, there is an expectation of a $20 per person donation, all of which goes directly to the artist. This is how he makes his living, and I promise that you'll be better for having shared this experience with Jay and all of your new friends!
Jay will bring his CD's and perhaps some other swag to sell and be happy to sign and share hugs and his sweet spirit.
