Hailing from Marlborough, the members of The Allens started in the local music scene playing any and every high school, nightclub, and concert gig they could find. From Worcester to Boston, including legendary clubs like the Rat, the Channel, Bunratty's, Paradise Rock Club, and Sir Morgan's Cove as well as many other bars in the New England area, members of The Allens have shared a stage with Jesse Malin, The Romantics, The Neighborhoods, Extreme, Farrenheit, and members of the Joe Perry Project. Paying their dues in other bands, the boys in The Allens always had a friendly camaraderie and appreciation for each others' playing. Now in their thirty-fifth year!

The Allens are: Billy Claire, guitar and vocals; Frank Hinckley, guitar and vocals; Eric Johnson, bass; and Mark Johnson, drums and vocals.

It's always a raucous time when The Allens hit the stage- come on down to a show soon!
