Jazz singer, Ki Allen, has worked with almost every important rhythm section in Northeast Ohio, enjoying particularly long and fruitful associations with legendary pianists Neal Creque, Ace Carter, Skeet Ross, Eddy Baccus, Dave Thomas, and Jackie Warren; guitarists Bob Fraser, Bob Ferrazza and double bassists Peter Dominguez, Chink Stevenson, Glen Holmes, Daniel Stein; drummers Ron Godale & Val Kent.

Ki Allen currently performs every Monday night with The Skatch Anderseen Orchestra in Cleveland, Ohio lead by Eric Dregne and Scott McKee.
