This was my third time coming down to play The Electric Theater http://www.theelectrictheater.com/ in St.George. This is honestly my favorite venue in Utah for sure. I have never had a bad show and the people have always been responsive. I have a handful of fans that I know by name and I'm so thankful for all of them. Bucky and the rest of the staff at the venue are honestly the nicest I have ever met.
I got to open up for Lorene Drive, Just Surrender and Farewell. After my set Daniel walked right up to me and asked if I'd be interested in playing in the band (Lorene Drive). I honestly didn't know what to say. I spent a good portion of the night in the back of Lorene Drives van listening to a bunch of their new stuff and talking about what they were looking for. They just wanted a guy that can sing back ups and play pretty decent guitar and help with writing. Part of we would love to be a part of that.
It was a pretty surreal experience simply because I have always loved their music. Its a huge decision and I hope to come up with an answer before the Spring. Just picking up and leaving is a pretty tough thing to do. Even for me and I just released a solo record. Kind of strange timing if you ask me. For now there will be plenty of Allred shows to go around.
All and all it was a great time down there and I'll be back down real soon.
