Born in Chicago in 1965 Bernard Allison is the son of blues guitarist Luther Allison. The blues was brought up in Bernard from an early age. He listened to his father’s records, accompanied him to blues festivals in the early 70s and got to know greats like Muddy Waters, Hound Dog Taylor and Albert King. Bernard teaches himself to play the guitar and in 1983, he performs with his father at the Chicago Blues Festival. After high school he toured with Koko Taylor’s band, but also had his own band Bernard Allison And Black Talk. In 1989, he joined his father’s touring band. The current band consists of Bernard Allison (guitar & vocals), Dylan Salfer (guitar), George Moye (drums) and Jose James (sax & percussion).
