Chris Parker Project
They’ve made the U.S. Army dance, set the stage for Maroon 5 and kept hundreds of people dancing at the 4th of July Fest and the Oktoberfest at Tempe Town Lake. There’s not much more you can expect from a party band and the Chris Parker Project (CPP) consistently delivers. Arizona’s prescription for playtime has been medicating local masses for seven chryears now with an eclectic, ever-expanding list of memorable material from artists as diverse as Toby Keith and Sir Mix-a-Lot. In a relatively short period of time CPP has garnered an ardent fan base as diverse as their repertoire that follows them from show to show, a true rarity for cover bands. So what distinguishes this sextet from countless groups performing songs made famous by others? As anyone who’s been to a CPP show will attest, this band kicks some serious brass! When was the last time you heard a hot horn section blowing bounce into “Baby Got Back?” It takes chutzpah to add horns to classic rockers like The Cars’ “Just What I Needed,” Bon Jovi’s “You Give Love a Bad Name” and Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way,” and cover bands aren’t supposed to have the creative inclination or the chops to pull it off. Apparently, no one told CPP. Armed with the sultry sax and bountiful brass, CPP can mingle with motown, pack the trunk with 70s funk and tackle unique new creations from the mad scientist in CPP’s laboratories. No one is doing it better than the Chris Parker Project. If you’re looking for an intangible element to elevate your experience from enjoyable to indelible, your prescription is written. Book the Chris Parker Project and get excited to take your medicine.
