Known as "Long Islands Working Man's Musician" Guitarist, Singer, and Songwriter Josh Allen wears this title proudly. With influences ranging from Stevie Ray Vaughan, Rory Gallagher, Ronnie VanZant, Richie Kotzen, and John Mellencamp, Josh has worked at putting out music that has power and soul.  Josh has been quoted on his philosophy: "Whenever I get the chance to play, I give it 110% and put it all out there.  One of the most rewarding things is creating a personal connection with your audience. There is a great and rewarding feeling when you finish a show and everyone walks away having shared an emotional exchange."

With two albums already released with his band Jacks O' Diamonds, "Find Something New" (2005) and "Here, There, and Everywhere" (2009),  new music is on the horizon.  Currently Josh is working with two projects The Josh Allen Band, and The Allen-Forrester Band.

After a successful European Tour in the beginning of 2019 with the Allen-Forrester Band,  work was started on their first album.  In April 2023 the Allen-Forrester Band released their debut self titled album to great reviews.
