"Denise Allen Band concert at Sommergarten"

"It doesn't happen often that a singer equally fascinates lovers of modern pop music as well as fans of soul, blues and gospel. Together with her band, Denise Allen gave a resounding example of this on the roof of the Federal Art Hall. The 2500 audience members obviously enjoyed the music of the American singer, who presently is in the midst of her annual European tour."

"Denise Allen Band concert at the Summer in Bourges music festival"

"Lucky were those present a the concert of Denise Allen. The American singer offered the audience a great moment of happiness Saturday evening. About 1000 people had the pleasure to hear this diva of rock and blues in the garden of Prés Fichaux.

With Sylvan Incao on bass, Zac Parker on drums, Steve Ball on organ and Ricky Henderson on guitar, the Denise Allen Band showed the whole expanse of their talent, alternating jazz, blues and rock, while Denise bewitched the audience with her warm voice, really inviting them to follow her music in softness and magic.

The Whole Audience was unable to pull their eyes away from the stage, hypnotized, attracted by this woman whose voice could win over Ulysses himself. Without ever acting, with authenticity and talent, Denise Allen offered a concert of great beauty."

The Denise Allen Band feature Georgia native, Denise Allen on vocals backed by Ricky Henderson from Brisbane, Australia, Sylvan Incao from New York and Zac Parker from San Francisco. Since the release of their latest LP “You/Me/Us" in May of 2010, the Denise Allen Band has pushed onwards and upwards, growing bolder and more daring both in writing and live shows as time has passed.

Denise and Ricky spend most of their time in a disused office space making sounds that eventually become songs, while Zac polishes up the songs in the band’s recording studio. Zac is the rock from which their music jumps, creating rhythms which pave paths for Ricky, Sylvan and Denise to run, skip, fall and sprint briskly on. All the vocal melodies are supplied by Denise while the lyrics are given to the band by long-time friend, conspirator and mentor Lee Lozowick. Sylvan is the band’s multi-instrumentalist, swapping instruments on different tracks. Their songs are landscaped with infectious guitar lines and/or driving bass with pounding drums all punctuated by Denise’s earthy yet sublime vocal stylings. 

Other releases include the LP, “True” released in 2009 and the LP “Diamonds & Silk” from 2008.  Denise also has two LPs from ‘02 and ‘03 titled “Not Just Another Diva” and “He Takes My Soul.” Currently demoing songs with a new album in their sights, the Denise Allen Band plan to go into the studio to record a new album in the fall of 2011.

Their recent tour of Europe found them sharing stages with the likes of Ana Popovic at “Blues Nights,” Gossau, Switzerland, gently gracing the clubs at “Jazz Tage,” Arosa, Switzerland, and playing their more hard-driving blues and rock repertoires to packed crowds at Meppen’s “15th International Jazz & Blues Night” and opening for Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings at the “Cahors Blues Festival” in France, among others. One gig of special note was a show at the main stage of the “Summer in Bourges Music Festival” in Bourges, France where the band played their full repertoire for a rapterous audience of about 5000 people.

The Denise Allen Band have set out to be organic in the way they develop as a band.  Besides believing in themselves, they believe word of mouth to be as helpful as any internetiwebical gob, that having fun and making friends along the way is essential to that organic growth.
