From an early age, music was always a pillar in Allan's life, which earned him full music scholarships from the University of Tennessee and Middle Tennessee State University. Ultimately he decided to attend the world-renowned Berklee School of Music, majoring in composition and arranging. Beyond college programs, Allan participated in private music studies including stints with Dr. John Duke and Steve Young. During his time in Nashville, Allan performed on numerous commercial studio backups and acted as Vice Chairman for the Middle Tennessee Music Industry Students Association, which was sponsored by Nashville recording artist and producer, Tom T. Hall. Allan was proficient on all saxophones and flute, while perfecting the blend of those instruments with electronic sound processing to create "the one man horn section". Allan's sound was comparable to Glen Miller’s sax section or a Motown horn section. In his musical journey, Allan performed behind jazz feature artists, Kai Winding, Larry London, Bud Brisbois, and Don Sheffield. Allan performed musical entertainment for the Mario Andretti Driver of the Century Award Ceremony and the Miss Pennsylvania Pageant Ball. Signature gigs included opening for Bill Hailey’s Comets and closing for the world renowned Bethlehem Musikfest. Most recently, Allen played in the Poconos with Who Knows for several years before relocating to Tampa, Florida. Allan passed away on January 2, 2021. He is missed and remembered by the Who Knows Band family and the band's fans.
