The Brad Allen Trio

The Brad Allen Trio is a jazz group based in Kansas City, and consists of Seth Lee, upright bass, Rob Witsitt, guitar, and Brad Allen on drums and vocals.

The group performs jazz in several styles, ranging from original tunes, to funk pieces by Cannonball Adderly and vocal jazz by Nat King Cole.

The Brad Allen Trio was the house band at Grand Street Cafe on the Kansas City Plaza for over 3 years. The trio held down a similar house gig at Bristol Seafood Grill in Leawood, KS. Other notable performances include appearances at the Best Of Kansas City Jazz Series, in Topeka, KS,  Green Lady Lounge, in Kansas City,  Jazz  & Blues Fest, in Lee’s Summit, MO, and the First Friday Jazz Series, at Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, NE.

The group also performs regularly for private functions in and around Kansas City. These range from corporate events to wedding receptions. A sax and other horn players are sometimes added to the trio for larger events.

Brad Allen

Along with performing on drums with the trio, Brad Allen does solo performances. “These really started out as vocal performances,” says Allen. The guitar was strictly for accompaniment. Over the years though, I’ve continued to grow as a guitarist. I’m doing a lot more soloing on the guitar during the solo performances than I used to. I’m also doing a lot more composing than songwriting these days.”

To Whom It May Concern:

Brad Allen’s band has played for Shook, Hardy & Bacon’s End of Summer party for the last several years. They have always done a wonderful job. The group is very reliable, arrives on time, professional in appearance and is always a pleasure to work with. Every year I have attorneys ask who the great band is. I would recommend Brad Allen for any event.

Very truly yours,
