InfoKirby Allan is a legend, known for his ecclectic musical tastes and wide range of talents in producing, composing, and managing talent in the music business.

Kirby Allan started off as a crooner in the Frank Sinatra era, recording many popular songs, including the top hit "Roamin", which launched his Hollywood career in 1952.

After his World War II discharge, Kirby used his GI Bill to enter Chicago's "Conservatory of Music", and began singing in various Chicago night clubs. After a succession of hits, Kirby moved to Hollywood in further pursuit of his music. He later introduced the hit orchestra piece "This is New York", elevating his status even further in the industry.

Kirby's ecclectic musical taste found him on the Gold Coast of Africa, recording the sensual drummings of various tribes, used in wedding ceremonies and mating rituals. Kirby brought this music back to Hollywood, only to have it rejected by various producers, siting the music to repetitive for American audiences. In typical Kirby Allan style, he was uninhibited by this, and began experimenting with the Americanization of this primitive music...

This led to the discovery of Chaino. Kirby invented, what is still to this day, a trade secret for the Americanizing of this style of music, and led to the unbounded success of Chaino...
