Nashville recording artist Tracy Allen and the Sin Circus will be coming to Zalenski’s Family Pub and Eatery, 547 Cadiz Road, Wintersville, for a free show in the dining room beginning at 8 p.m. April 26.

Allen, a West Virginia native, is full of energy and talent and has a voice that is certainly unforgettable and will live on for years to come. Music was an inspiration to him at a very young age. In 2011, Allen's passion for music led him to Nashville, Tenn., where he recorded with highly renowned producer Jeff Huskins, formally of the band Little Texas.

Huskins has produced influential artists such as Keith Urban, Clint Black and Shelly Wright.

"Music was an inspiration to me at a very young age," said Allen. "I started teaching myself to play on this old junk piano/organ mom had in the back room of our house. Then one day my dad came back when I was playing and said, 'Son, only girls play piano," so he got me a guitar, and the rest is history.

"My mom had me in every music contest from here to Christmas growing up," Allen continued. "My first real band was named Mystery. We were quite sure we were going to be rock stars someday, but everybody went in different directions. Then I was introduced to Scott Beach by a mutual friend, and we instantly hit it off. Then came the legend of Mirror Mirror. Fast forwarding to present day, Mirror Mirror still hits the stage from time to time, but I've embarked on a new journey as a solo artist and stay rather busy. I have learned a lot of life's lessons the hard way, been humbled by my mistakes and met some amazing and special people that make me still believe I will someday stand on the big stage."

Currently Allen travels the country promoting his self-titled album and opening for artists such as Jamey Johnson, Trent Tomlinson and Brett Michaels. Allen can be heard on
