Too Many Drivers - Dexter Allen

Dexter Allen born in Crystal Springs Mississippi, started out playing guitar at the church where his father was pastor. Traveling and performing with Bobby Rush to France, Japan, Germany, Spain, China, Finland, Iraq, Kuwait, Sweden and all over the United States, was the vehicle that headed Dexter down the road of Blues. After the Rush experience, Dexter decided to form his own band and began playing clubs and venues all over the southeast and southwest. This has proven to be successful in spreading his unique style of guitar playing, and vocal ability. His unique style landed the 2008 Jackson Music Award for Male Vocalist. His current album titled Bluezin My Way,tells stories of Love, Lust, Lies, and Allibites, which landed him the Jackson Music awards 2009 Entertainer of the Year. For Christmas of 2009 Dexter also released “Hello Ms Santa Claus” which D.J.’s predict to be a holiday standard. Dexter also lends his time and talents for blues workshops in area schools. His music and entertaining stage performance is sure to leave you enlightened, delighted, and excited that you had the opportunity to see and hear one of the best 21st century blues performers from Mississippi.
