Artist Q&A

@JamminJavaMei's Q&A With Andy Allo


Andy Allo is here this Saturday 1/25! This will be her first time here but we're psyched! We really love the music we've seen in videos like the ones below. Andy spent some time in Prince's New Power Generation band and even co-wrote some of the songs with Prince. Not a bad endorsement! We agree that "good feeling" is a great description of the music.  Check out the vids below for a taste and get your tickets asap!

Where and when was your first show?  

Wow...Let me try to remember that. I've been performing since I was a little girl. My first show as a performer would be in Bamenda, Cameroon. I don't recall where exactly but I always put on performances for my family, friends and did school plays. My best friend, Mona and I sang together at a conference once and that was one the first times I sang in front of a large group of people. I think I was 12 or 13.

What band/artist would you consider to be your main influence?

I don't think I have a main band or artist that has influenced me. I grew up listening to such a wide array of music from Dolly Parton to Bob Marley to Miles Davis. I'll just say music has been my influence....

What is one of your most memorable or off-the-wall touring experiences?

My most memorable experience would be the whole experience of touring around Europe in my first tour bus. I had never done this before and it was really exciting to finish a show and hop on a bus with my whole band and travel from country to country.

Favorite Food: Fried Plantains or French Fries.. anything fried pretty much is my guilty pleasure.

Favorite Drink: Mango Lassi or Thai Iced Tea

If you were to have a film/movie based on your career, which actors or band would you select to portray yourself?

Oo I feel like I'm so young and just starting out that if a movie were to be done about my life, I'd probably be able to act in it as myself haha. I love being an actress and am looking forward to doing more acting in the future.

What two words would best describe your music? Good Feeling.
