About Sparky Parker


  From the gulf coast metropolis of Houston, Texas, Sparky Parker's potent combo of blistering lead guitar work and soulful voice is a force to be reckoned with. For over a decade, he has honed his craft and made a name for himself playing in three Houston-based bands Bayou Monster, Mojofromopolis, and Funky Mustard.
  Now Sparky is fronting his own band and will release a live album in early 2015. His hard-rockin', blues-based sound harkens back to the glory days of The Allman Brothers, Jimi Hendrix, and Stevie Ray Vaughan.  Read full bio

New CD "Live In Houston" 

My new CD Sparky Parker "Live In Houston" will hit the streets Saturday May 23rd! It's been a long time coming. This is my first "solo" CD. The music was recorded live at Dan Electro's Guitar Bar in the Houston Heights on the night of November 1, 2014. Kevin Barry slayed the drums that night and Larry Evans provided juicy bass lines all night as well. We will have a CD Release Party at Dan Electro's Saturday May 23rd, so please mark it on your calendar and bring your buddies!
