Back in the 60s, as a very young man, Tom Allen first took to the stage to entertain the people of the Irish Midlands. In 1970, when Tom joined a band called the Fine Avons, he made his first trip to the UK as lead singer with the group, and since then he has been touring world-wide.
In 1978 Tom got his first big break to join one of Ireland’s biggest and best-known bands, The Mainliners.
