Tennessee Concerts is seeking bands of all genres to be its next "Featured Band of the Month." Selected bands will be profiled in the Music City Beat! newsletter that is sent to several thousand music industry professionals -- including managers, promoters, engineers and artists. Winners will also have their links, photos and bio posted on TennesseeConcerts.com for the 2008 calendar year.

Bands who submit will be reviewed and selected by Gary Allen, drummer, and president of Loud Music Inc. BMI. He personally critiques his favorite submissions and posts his comments on TennesseeConcerts.com. Each month, Gary will pick a winner from each of the following 10 categories: Rock, Americana, Folk, Country, Instrumental, Jazz, Acoustic, Singer/Songwriter, Pop, and Alternative.

Gary is especially interested in Americana, blues, country, jam band, rock, southern rock, R&B and soul styles, both instrumental and with vocals. Selected artists will have their music played at The Housecat Gigs, during breaks at the Rhythm Kitchen, a prestigious venue frequented by artists, writers, publishers and promoters. Music City Nights! is taped at the venue on Tuesdays, live on the internet and Gary Allen is the host of the house band and musicians' jam band.

Born in Music City, Gary stepped from a school bus to a tour bus touring the planet with The Charlie Daniels Band. Gary Allen has performed on tour along with The Rolling Stones, Joe Walsh, Chili Peppers, Eric Clapton, Allman Brothers Band, Marshall Tucker Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blue Oyster Cult, Willie Dixon, The Outlaws, John Lee Hooker, Roger McGuinn, Peter Frampton, Eddie Money, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Ted Nugent, Bob Seeger, REO Speedwagon, Kansas, John Hammond, Bruce Springsteen, Little Feat, War, Yes, and ZZ Top.

Gary's soundtrack work includes 2006 remakes of The Bad News Bears and The Dukes Of Hazard. The Coyote Ugly bar franchise features music from The CDB in all their dance routines, and The CDB is featured bumper music on Coast To Coast AM, the biggest late night radio talk show in history. JJ Cale's latest release is the Eric Clapton/JJ Cale CD The Road to Escondidio.
