Eric Allen began his career in percussion with a proverbial bang (no pun intended). He was spotted at the age of eleven while doing outreach work in south central Los Angeles by an advertising executive for Wuhan Percussion, who after taking one look at him decided that this was the kind of child that America would love to see run headfirst into one of the company's gongs.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
