I have to say, my evening with Allan Hayslip was one of the most interesting, entertaining and frightening that I’ve experienced in some time. Interesting and entertaining because that’s Allan, he’s a witty, clever and fun guy. Frightening because he managed to get me on a 20-ft. lift—me–one who is so terrified of heights, that even a step stool might as well be the top of a mountain.
Allan has fashioned a pretty fabulous studio, nestled behind aisles and aisles of fabulous designer hand-picked antiques and home furnishings, where he wrote, recorded and produced his new album, Thinktankubator. He co-owns a company that provides delivery, installation and storage of antiques and home furnishings. An interesting musician with a great new album, surrounded by gorgeous antiques: suffice to say, I was in Heaven.
Tonight Allan is throwing a CD release party at LaGrange in Deep Ellum for his first solo project, Bonedome. He had an all-star line-up recording with him on the album (Colin Boyd, Gerald Iragorri, Ed McMahon, Paul Williams, Jonathan Lacey, Gregg Prickett, Chad Stockschlager and Stewart Bennett) , and some mighty fine musicians performing with him tonight.
