Nov-28-14 05:00 PM James Cotton Guitarist SLAM ALLEN - 2013 NY Blues Hall Of Fame Inductee - 5PM Show

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.

From 2002 thru 2010 he played an important role, as the lead singer and guitarist, in the legendary James Cotton Band. "It's one of the highlights and privileges of my life to play with Cotton" says Allen, "He is one of the last living legends, and there's so much history there.

Music is in Allen's blood -- The New York Blues Hall of Fame Guitarist 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."

With a national solo career established, Slam's soul mission is to preserve the blues and bring back what was never gone. Whether he plays his own originals or evokes the spirit of Otis Redding, Freddie King, and Howlin' Wolf, Slam has a way of making you feel the "Love and 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.
