Josh Allen has been singing all his life and he has always loved music. Josh says when talking with people it is difficult to not break out in a song as many people unknowingly say something that are lyrics in a song.
People have always told him he needs to be in a band but he never thought people would want to hear him. He deciced to say, "What the heck," and do it. He tried out for several bands but things didn't work out for various reasons. Josh talks fondly of the tryouts and rehearsals that didn't quite work out the way everyone wanted. He says they are all great memories and have help to make him who he is today as an artist.
He met Larry Orf and Bryan Smith through Rand Gardner. The day they met they played for the first time together in Strasburg. The show was a huge hit with the show ending in a standing ovation and requests for encores. Their final song was "Sultans of Swing," and to this day the Josh Allen Band ends their shows with "Sultans of Swing" and "House of the Rising Sun."
"We try to do requests", says Josh "I always tell the audience, if we pull it off it is because of the guys (he points to the other guys in the band and if we mess it up it's because of me".
If you ever get the chance to hear this band please do yourself a favor and go, you will not be disappointed.
