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 just released his debut album Live In Houston in May 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

Live In Houston is a red-hot mix of electric blues played live, power trio style. Sparky Parker's guitar chops and vocal prowess take center stage on this recording captured one night in Houston in front of a hometown crowd.

This is Sparky's debut "solo" release. The music was recorded live at Dan Electro's Guitar Bar in the Houston Heights on the night of November 1, 2014. The powerhouse rhythm section featuring Kevin Barry (drums) and Larry Evans (bass) were right in the pocket all night and provided a solid foundation for Sparky to shine.

While original songs "Games" "Treat Me Mean" and "Like You Say" show off Sparky's songwriting abilities, he also revisits age-old blues classics like Muddy Waters "Im Ready" and Howlin Wolf's "Killin Floor" and gives them a face lift.

If you're a fan of electric blues, be sure to pick up a copy of this album. You won't be disappointed.
