Kansas City’s Kurt Allen Band will perform on Friday, June 21, at Charlie’s Place, 1109 Main. Admission is free.

The following information was provided by the band:

For over a decade, Kurt Allen has been fusing gritty old school blues, vintage soul, swampy Bayou funk, and more into a relentless blues-rock machine. His songwriting reflects craftsmanship honed by years of commitment, and his albums take the listener on an unforgettable ride to almost every corner of the blues universe. Kurt’s latest release, “Live From The Red Shed,” is classic modern blues-rock.

A true road warrior with a hardcore touring schedule that sees him playing 150-200 dates a year, Allen – like most everyone else – was derailed for most of 2020-21 as the live music world shut down. As soon as things began to open back up, Allen was burning up the miles all over the lower 48. And by the good graces of the Blues gods, he also ended up with a stellar live recording from The Red Shed in Hutchinson, Kansas.

Over nine tracks, Allen flexes his guitar muscle in a way only hinted at on previous studio releases. Peppering the set with songs from his entire catalog, along with new and previously unrecorded tracks, “Live From The Red Shed” is an unfiltered testament to the power of live blues.
