ABOUT

Allan Cook

Dr. of Funk, Jive, Jazz & Junk tm
"The One Man Horn Section"

Whether you need a full band or a solo performance, Allan can provide the quality show your guests would expect and always at a reasonable price.

Allan has spent his entire life performing and managing music acts starting at 14 years old using his mother to transport his band. He was blessed with the great gift of being able to play what he heard which put him in demand even before he could understand it. Due to this ability he was on the move right out of high school being awarded full music scholarships from the University of Tennessee Chattanooga and Middle Tennessee State University and attended the world-renowned Berklee School of Music. Allan has had the pleasure of performing behind or opening for numerous jazz feature artists including Buddy Thompson, Kai Winding, Larry London, Bud Brisbois and Don Sheffield. But he also crossed over into other music with JT Carter (Crest- Sixteen Candles), Terry Moore (Mitch Rider- Devil with the Blue Dress), The Spinners, Little Anthony and the Imperials, The Temptations and The Guess Who. He has made appearances in the National Blues scene as well appearing behind National recording artists Nelson Adelard (Pandora Radio) and guitar playing phenom Tommy McCoy in Memphis during the BMA Blues Awards Program (courtesy of Chicago Earwig Records). Today beside performing, Allan engineers and runs a 24 track recording production studio and has also performed musician/show management roles, his most recent as Entertainment Director and Stage Manager for the Odessa Rodeo and Festival. Thru the years he has performed at numerous special events including the Mario Andretti Driver of the Century Award Ceremony and the Miss Pennsylvania Pageant Ball and has opened for Bill Hailey’s Comets and closed several years performing at the VIP party for the world renowned Bethlehem Musikfest in Pennsylvania. He sings and is proficient on Wind Synth and all saxes and flute and has combined these instruments with live sound processing to create the one man horn section … trumpets and all …
