Chris Allard

Chris is a guitarist who has played alongside the cream of British jazz talent: three generations of Dankworths (simultaneously), Jamie Cullum, Gwyneth Herbert, Mike Outram, Tim Garland and the BBC Big Band to name a few. He’s probably been on TV more times than you have, and also finds time to front his own quintet, the Chris Allard Band.

The site design takes its inspiration from an X-ray image of a dual black-hole galaxy, courtesy of NASA, which forms the background, and Chris’s simple instruction to me that it look “classy” and use the same Copperplate font as on his album covers.

Featured on the site is a homepage with news snippets and a calendar, a YouTube gallery and a photo slideshow. Within the site are standard features including a news blog, a photo album, gig listings and an audio player.
