My name is Allison Keck and I'm from Neoga. I have been performing around the area for a year and a half now. The Texaco Country Showdown is a great opportunity to showcase my enjoyment of country music. My time working at the Effingham Performance Center sparked my interest in performing and I enjoy interacting with the various acts that visit Effingham. Country is my main genre of music, but I enjoy all types.
I have worked at the Effingham Performance Center and the Village Mall Cinemas in Effingham. I currently work at the Mattoon Rural King and the store always plays country music. I have performed at Tuscan Hills Winery, Joe Sippers, Neoga Days, the Jac in Charleston, private parties, weddings and open mic night at the Toledo Legion. I also had the chance to be on the TV show CI Living based out of Champaign. I play guitar, ukulele, trumpet and piano. I am a graduate of Neoga High School and am enrolled at Lake Land College for the fall with a plan on obtaining a Bachelors' Degree in Music Therapy.
