Parker’s Back is an acoustic Americana quartet that plays everything from traditional folk to vintage country to rockabilly to early 20th century jazz, swing, and Great American Songbook classics, blending it all into a brand of music that can only be described as “borderless.” Although a relatively new band, they are in demand and have already played shows at Keg Cowboy in Lexington, Foxfield Bar and Grille, Michael’s Cafe, Tombo Grille, The Aristocrat, the 1425 Inn, all in Columbia; DW’s in Irmo; Stillwater Tap Room in Augusta; Bar Figaro in Newberry; and The Tasty Tomato and Friends of Edisto Festivals.
The band members are all long time veterans of the Columbia music scene and are all members of other popular gigging bands. Parker’s Back was created out of a desire to bring many of the subgenres of Americana music together. The band’s name either comes from a Flannery O’Connor story or a reference to Charlie Parker. Or both. You decide.
