---Robert Allen Jr.
It doesn’t take much listening to Milwaukee blues guitarist Robert Allen Jr. to realize that he’s a blues singer that is ready to play any show, anywhere. With his signature black hat, and suit, his eyes all but hidden behind bluesman sun glasses, his guitar named “Blondie” strapped over his shoulder, this is electric blues played with a ton of soul. His band is similarly attired in black giving the whole band a classy but rough around the edges look that tells a story even before they play a note. It’s unlikely that you’ve seen one guitarist make such an electrified sound with only one guitar and amp, no pedals or effects here. Robert doesn’t so much play the guitar, he masters it. Flying up and down the neck in a blur of hands, and playing solos with razor sharpness, he gives off energy that rockets from the stage. Robert’s voice is distinctive and he puts everything into his singing. The members of this band are true professionals, hardened by years of paying they’re dues. Not even stopping between tunes they lay down one groove after another, Robert acts the blues gunslinger part perfectly, strolling around the crowd and sliding up to fans as he makes Blondie scream. Whether at a summer festival, a local bar or nightclub, or on the big stage opening for superstars like Bruce Springsteen, you can’t help but appreciate the level of passion they pump into every note. Robert Allen Jr. has it figured out and knows how to connect with his audience.
