Sam Allen is equally adept as a solo acoustic guitarist and vocalist. He can comfortably switch gears from beautiful acoustic renditions of classic tunes, to some of the best pop, hip hop, funk and soul tunes, injected with his unique soulful sensibility. Sam’s vast experience performing as part of the house band at Sale Street (now Sweatshop) in central Auckland, combined with time performing full-time on cruise ships have given him a musical pedigree few can match. Still in his 20s, Sam is already a veteran of the NZ music scene with the skills to match.
We had Sam Allen perform at our Season Awards Party and he was absolutely amazing. 300 guests attended and all of the feedback was extremely positive. We will definitely be recommending him.
