A Conversation with Egypt Central’s Drummer Blake Allison

Q103

Days are counting down fast to the Q103 Thanksgiving Hangover, November 26th 7pm at the Washington Avenue Armory.   Staind is the headliner, special guests include Egypt Central and  local band Pipe Bomb.   Egypt Central was part of the Q103 Q-Ruption show at SPAC this past summer and since then the band has been quite busy.   Drummer Blake Allison took a few minutes to tell us what has been happening. 

Egypt Central hails from Memphis Tennessee and features newlywed John Falls on lead vocals, Jeff James on lead guitar, Joey Chicago on Bass and Blake Allison on the drums. The Band has a top 20 rock record with ‘White Rabbit’ and currently has a track out on rock radio called ‘Kick Ass’.  Both songs can be heard on Q103.

You’ve had a few months to recover from the Q103 Q-Ruption, how did you like being a part of the show?
