Parker's Tangent
Art Rock Blues

  Parker’s Tangent based out of New Haven, CT plays blues and roots based original art rock. The music can be poetic, quiet and touching to bluesy to out and out rocking. This is a professional group that has a lot of fun performing and that fun is picked up by the audience. The band’s lineup is comprised of a female lead singer who’s wonderful, warm sultry voice has been compared to Grace Slick and Nora  Jones, drums [also female] guitar, bass, and violin!
    This is a professional all-star group with each of the musicians having many, many years of experience in other local bands. While the group plays primarily electric they are able to perform acoustically [“unplugged”] as well. The music is original and therefore there are no BMI/ASCAP issues.
