Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Alan started making music and playing guitar at age 10. By the age of 15, he had become fascinated with Blues & Jazz, and started voraciously transcribing recorded music from the 1920’s, through the 60’s. Before graduating from high school he was already playing clubs, dances and parties in and around Portland. He graduated from N.E.C. in 1979, with a Bachelor’s degree in Music. In 1980 he started his private teaching career, which he continues to this day.

Alan has performed and recorded with many of the Northwest’s most famous musicians, and has become a much in demand musician/guitarist. He started playing music with Curtis Salgado about 10 years ago, in their much loved duo format, giving concerts throughout the Northwest and various other areas of the U.S.. He has been a member of the Curtis Salgado band since the spring of 2015, and has now toured extensively with Curtis, in support of Salgado’s newest release, ‘The Beautiful Lowdown” (Alan is co­writer and featured guitar player on, ‘I Know a Good Thing’).

Tuesday Blues is Portland’s  all-ages weekly Blues dance night. Every Tuesday night we bring you the best Blues dancing, DJs, and live music Portland has to offer. While Tuesday Blues is centered around playing Traditional Blues music, the last hour of each night is DJ’s choice, and may include some Alt Blues music as well. No partner required, no experience required—just a love for the Blues and a desire to move!
