Freddy Allen is happy to be returning for his second year for The Prairie Players Summer Jazz Series.
Freddy has been a professional pianist and singer for over 40 years. Between 1995-2020, he served as music director and musical partner with the comedy/music duo of Amy & Freddy. Amy & Freddy toured nationally & internationally, and headlined on more than 60 cruises. Amy & Freddy opened for acts like Phyllis Diller, Bea Arthur, Mary Wilson and The Supremes to name a few.
In 2020, Freddy retired from Amy & Freddy and is now focusing on his passion of early jazz and The Great American Songbook. He currently performs throughout the Midwest as a solo artist and with his swing trio and quartet.
Freddy brings his own style and flair to classics made famous by Fats Waller, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet, Nat King Cole and so many more. Tonight, Freddy is joined by bassist, Ron Wilson and Gino Ciccotelli on drums.
