1966 - Born May 2, 1966 to Lem and Susan Allen, in Luling, Texas, music has been a part of my life since day one. My mom, dad, and brother are talented musicians as well. I literally can't remember a day in my life that didn't at least include listening to a song on the radio. As a kid, our house was always full of friends that came by to visit. Sing-a-longs were popular, with mom on the piano, and our good friend John Holloway on the guitar. We sang everything including Elvis, Buddy Holly, Frank Sinatra, Bob Wills, Jerry Jeff and Willie. The harmonies were good and bad, but it didn't matter... it was fun!!! Playing trombone in high school and throughout college and law school, I've always been involved in music. I have sung in public with various bands throughout my life, but I never considered pursuing singing or performing as a career until recently. Music is my passion. Oldies, classical music, rock and roll, and mariachi music are some of my favorites. However, I am partial to country music when it comes to performing. Ray Price, Johnny Bush, Darrell McCall, Bob Wills, Mel Tillis, Charlie Pride, Merle Haggard, George Strait, and Jody Nix. Those guys really get me excited! Shuffles, Waltzes and Western Swing tunes have always been the foundation of the Texas Dancehall sound that I hope to help revive. You can't have too much fiddle or steel guitar in a song for me. I have had the pleasure of doing guest appearances with Jody Nix and the Texas Cowboys as well as Kelly Spinks and Miles of Texas. In my opinion, these are two of the finest Dancehall bands in the State of Texas. Jody and Kelly have given me lots of encouragement. Lately, I have been going to jam sessions in the central Texas area, and I have been fortunate to become friends with some of the finest musicians in the business. They have encouraged me to pursue singing more seriously. So, I cut a CD that includes some of my favorite tunes. I like to describe it as a rebirth of the classic dancehall sound. I hope this new venture brings a lot of joy to everyone who listens to my music.

Lembo Allen's DANCING ROOM ONLY is a delight from start to finish. "Two Empty Glasses" is very fine as are his takes on such classics as "Cinderella" "Take Me Back to Tulsa" and "San Antonio Rose". The only (very slight) misstep on the album is on Lou Rochelle's "There's Still A Lot Of Love In San Antone". Allen's take on the song is okay but I've heard it done better, most recently by Lisa Layne and by writer Lou Rochelle. Five stars and I'll defintiely buy Lembo Allen's next disc

If you like to dance, or just sing along, you won't be disappointed with Dancing Room Only! Lembo has one of the most powerful voices around, and he knows how to sing these classics. Nice to hear a country CD with a fiddle that won't stop and a steel guitar, too!

Lembo's music takes you back to the dance-hall days. If you are listening in the car, it makes you want to stop, pull over, and get out to dance.

Lembo Allen (Dancing Room Only) Wow! What a talented country singer. Resonant voice, great line, style, phrasing. The boy knows the standards and belts them with authority and great energy -- and the band is fabulous! Lembo, you're the ONE!

This is true classic country at its finest. If you are a fan of some of the songs that made country music great, there is NO way you will not love this CD. I absolutely cannot recommend it highly enough! Fantastic voice, talented band and great song selection.

I haven't been a huge fan of country music for quite a few years. The music being released just hasn't done anything for me. But this spring I heard Dancing Room Only while driving in a friends car. WOW! This is country music like it should be. Lembo can really sing and his band really swings. I've bought copies for my friends and they all like it too.
