I grew up in Grandview, Missouri and after receiving my honorable discharge from the US Navy in 1983, I toured America as a professional musician most of my adult life. Here are some of the bands that I have been an official member of: 'Fiancé', 'Bishop Steel', 'Roxx Gang', 'Mojo Gurus', 'Walter', 'The Blessed Virgin Larry', 'Hagas', 'Satisfaction' (Rolling Stones Tribute Band), 'Armure De Ruisseaux', 'Brick Top Social Club', 'Jett Blakk', 'A Circle Of Faith' and Psychodelic Caravan. While performing with these bands, I made incredible friendships while sharing stages coast to coast with many artists including Dr. Hook, The Kentucky Headhunters, Steppenwolf, Foreigner, Head East, George Lynch, Black Oak Arkansas, Ratt, Molly Hatchet, Silento, Jimmie VanZandt, Killer Dwarfs, Henry Lee Summer, Spread Eagle, Scatterbrain, Daisy Berkowitz and Jackyl.
2006 to 2010: I operated UAFF News / UAFF Films online.
2010: I graduated from the New York Film Academy.
2012: I created the music video for Dwight Yoakam's song 'Waterfall'.
2013: I did the animation work for 'Movie On A Stick' .
From 2014 to 2019 I operated a dog rescue called House Of Hound (which later became a full on animal shelter) and with the help of many great people we saved over 1000 dogs in rural Missouri! During that time (2015) I also graduated with honors and got my diploma as an Assistant Veterinarian from Ashworth College. I got very sick in the summer of 2019 and had to abruptly retire from my animal care work in an attempt to try and save myself. I eventually found out it was a liver disease which I have been able to reverse and control over time by learning about ingredients and what not to eat/drink in order to live a healthy life.
Side notes: My legal first name is Bert which I use for my film credits and such but I try to use middle name Allen, as my first name for most of my musical endeavors. )
(2023) I am still performing with Psychodelic Caravan but If you need a bassist I do local shows for $130+ and out of town shows for $250+ plus expenses. Just shoot me over an email with the gig specifics and I will let you know if I am available for your shows. Thank you!
