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 bands like Bayou Monster, Mojofromopolis, and Funky Mustard.
  Now Sparky is focused on fronting his own band, The Sparky Parker Band, and 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

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

The powerhouse rhythm section featuring Kevin Berry (drums) and Larry Evans (bass) is right in the pocket on every song and provides a solid foundation for Sparky to shine.

Original songs "Games" "Treat Me Mean" and 'Like You Say You Do" show off Sparky's songwriting abilities while he reinvents age-old blues classics like Muddy Waters "I'm Ready" and Howlin Wolf's "Killin Floor" and gives them a face lift.
