guitar and vocal skills by adding new material to her cover song rep and in the meantime changing and altering the way the songs are done; she makes each and every song not-just-another-cover. And when the sun goes down, Allegra gets up, grabs her guitar, hops in her '72 Scout and takes off to any number of gigs that she plays nightly all around San Diego and Los Angeles: Cowboy bar downtown? Done. Wine Bar in Hillcrest? Yes. Posh grill in La Jolla? Certainly. Irish pub in the Gaslamp? You bet. Beach bar on the drag in Pacific Beach? She's there belting out her tunes with her twelve string ovation strapped to her chest, flip flops on her feet, business cards in hand and cd's for sale.
Allegra's vocals are almost impossible to liken to any one performer. Imagine Etta James meets Ella Fitzgerald meets Alanis meets Janice Joplin. And with a touch of country storytelling in her lyrics, sprinkled with some silly, outgoing, personable humor in between tunes, all you need is the cherry on top! An instant bond with her audiences is inevitable and her amazing rhythms never fail to get them dancing. Venue patrons and owners alike love Allegra not only because of her top-notch musicianship, professionalism and quality but also because of the passion and energy that she consistently brings to the stage.
