Education Program Spreads The Groove

Allyn will be bringing his program entitled, "The Evolution of New Orleans Drumming" to St. Charles Parish's Luling Elementary, in February 2018. Beginning with the Original Brass Bands circa 1870, Allyn will provide the students a musical primer on the history of New Orleans drumming, demonstrating various styles essential to the history of New Orleans. Allyn also pays tribute to some of New Orleans' legendary drummers, including Warren "Baby" Dodds, Earl Palmer and Joseph "Zigaboo" Modeliste.

Allyn presented his program in 2017 and the students loved it! Back by popular demand!! Click here to see Allyn's program from his Gretna Middle School Concert and Clinic.

Allyn was featured in the September, 2012, issue of Modern Drummer magazine.

The article provides a wonderful retrospective on Allyn's career, including a discussion of his close relationship with Jaco Pastorius, a rare perspective on Allyn from Peter Erskine, and a highlight of his current projects.

From Wayne Cochran and the C.C. Riders to Dr. Hook, Tab Benoit, and dozens of other collaborations - Allyn holds a special place in music history. We are excited for everyone to read the article and would especially like to thank Cleve Warren and the whole team at Modern Drummer magazine!
