Shamarr Allen and the Underdawgs

A group with an explosive sound that draws from the deep roots of New Orleans jazz

Hailing from the Lower 9th Ward, Shamarr Allen, formerly of the celebrated jazz fusion band Galactic, leads the Underdawgs with his trumpet, spreading New Orleans spice wherever he goes. This band’s vibe is celebratory, loving, embracing and proud!

Allen has worked with artists Patti LaBelle, Lenny Kravitz, Harry Connick Jr., Branford Marsalis, Willie Nelson, Ray Price, Leon Russell, and R.E.M.. He’s a major New Orleans Saints fan, having composed “Bring Em To The Dome,” and “Hit The Sean Peyton” both of which make it 100% impossible to sit still while listening. Allen works with middle and high school students across the country, including here in Saratoga Springs, winning new fans for New Orleans roots music and building pride and confidence through musical performance
