I will miss him incredibly.”

Currently playing with the Charm City Devils, Allen will dedicate their April 21st show in Towson, Maryland to Brian Jack. “He was loved by many and it would be nice for everyone to be together again”, says Allen. “So come out to Recher with your love and memories of one of the greatest frontmen/singer/artist that Baltimore has ever seen.”
