I've been in bands, including Wild Cherry who recorded the iconic "Play That Funky Music", worked on hundreds of recording sessions from jingles, to avant-garde artists, to Cyndi Lauper, Roberta Flack, and countless other mainstream artists. I have scored a few indie films, had placements in TV. And I've always been involved in experimental electronic music, which is now what I mostly do with the occasional pop track thrown in when I feel the muse taking me there. Thank you for listening! ~ Allen Wentz

Bio

Legoland Empire, (LLE), is the creative brainchild of producer/composer Allen Wentz, and includes players and singers that range from unknown monsters to some of the greatest players on the planet. Allen was an original band member (bassist/synthesist/vocalist) of Wild Cherry which picked up 2 Grammy nominations and an American Music Award. He has since worked on projects too numerous to list as a session player, produced a number of indie albums, and scored a few indie films.

The concentration is now on song placements for film, TV and advertising, as the intricate electronics-based soundscapes are well suited for contemporary media.

Dude--loving your two new tunes. Really glad I just decided to check out the "just posted" tunes. I'm hearing Beatles, Kevin Gilbert, Crowded House, and Jellyfish echoes here. This is awesome Power Pop!

Thats quite an uncanny gift you have Jeff. Precision spotting of the influences. You actually scared me! In a good way of course! Thx very much for the kind words. I pray the intended supervisor feels the same. Have a great evening.

I googled to see if you had other presence on the web (nothing personal I just do that sometimes to see if someone is active in the music world). I had to chuckle in amazement when I saw your musical pedigree, and of course was really impressed. Your music was rocking my world back in high school!! Wow, too much!! If you hear my song Tastes Like Chicken you might hear some of that, along with a healthy dose of Jimmy Castor Bunch (and I know you actually know that sound from the day).

LOved "Chicken"! I agree with one of the comments, reminded me a little of Bowie doing 70's, midwestern funk. I'll check out some more later. (Oh, and yes I've been around the block a few times. :)

My pleasure. Your encouraging words were very helpful, and needed. I submitted "Thats OK" and I got short-listed on the first submission! Yay! Thx again.
