In their nearly three decade-long career, John Allen and Tim Mc Donald have literally been there and back with their high energy stage show, tenor vocals and unraveled harmonies. John started his musical career in the mid 80’s taking singing lessons for 2 years from (Al Cohen), vocal coach for (Axl Rose of Guns & Roses ) & (Matt Kramer of Saigon Kick). Eventually cutting his teeth in front of tens of thousands of people on stage @ local clubs, Festivals and night clubs throughout Florida including (The Rocket Club) in Tampa and (ML Chaser) in Clearwater Florida, not to mention the famous (Tobacco Road) in Miami. John Allen also became a regular @ Livestock, a yearly music festival in Zephyrhills Park Florida with an annual crowd of 15,000.

By 1988, John Allen and his band had become a dominant force in the southeastern U.S. region, and were opening for such acts Warrant, Steel Heart, Mr. Big, and Cheap Trick to name a few.

Relocating to Nashville, Tennessee in 2008, John Allen and his new band consisting of Brad Ruthven from Trick Pony on guitar, Brian Nelson from Trick Pony on drums, Tim Mc Donald on Keys, and Elio Germano from The Hank Sinatra Band on bass continue to score with new fans with his high energy show, while defying the logic of the music industry that younger crowds will not respond to men in their thirties singing on themes of younger generations.
