ABOUT

I have been a professional entertainer for my entire adult life. I graduated high school and started gigging and never looked back. I have played thousands of gigs! I absolutely love it! I have been the house entertainer at Steamboat Springs Ski Resort in Steamboat Springs, Co where I have entertained thousands of people for 15 of the last 18 Winters. I also played in Vail, Co for 3 Winters and 3 Summers. Most of these years I have played at least 5 day per week doing anything from solo performances, duos, or full band shows. I have also played 12 Summers at Ballards Beach resort on beautiful Block Island, RI... 12 miles off the coast of Rhode Island. There I played 5 days each week entertaining thousands of vacationing people.

I have an original album called Balancing Act produced by John Driskell Hopkins of the Zac Brown Band. I also have 16 original songs accepted by Pandora Radio. You can start a Pandora Radio station with my name Shawn David Allen.

I am looking to start a band with serious musicians only who are dedicated. I have played covers and originals my whole life and intend to continue doing so in a new band with the goal of becoming our own original act.
