Reviews on upcoming new release titled: "Demons"
"Rating - 10 out of 10
I love the instrumental. The song itself has a very catchy tune and I can imagine myself listening to it again. I caught myself dancing while listening although I don't listen to this genre often, I did really enjoy the song. I like the low vocals on the tune it was well put together!"
"Rating - 10 out of 10
I love the acoustics in the beginning. The guitar is subtle. The vocals are deep and the lyrics are dark. I absolutely love this song! I would hear this song on the radio and buy it. Oooh an edgy feel to the song and the beat is spooky and makes you feel like you're in a trance. The beat is catchy and the different instruments is amazing! Ooh the Egyptian music weaved into the song! I absolutely love this so much!"
Mike Parr Music
Book a Local Band
We are now available for you to book a local band to play in Baltimore and the surrounding counties in Maryland. We play classic rock, modern rock, alt rock, country, pop music and some originals. Mike has been playing in bands on and off since the 70's and has had songs on the radio on light rotation since 1984 in the south and northeast us.
Mike Parr Trio
We are a 3 piece band that can sound as good as some 4 and 5 piece bands. Mike plays drums, keys, guitar and harmonica (not at the same time) and Jason and Robert plays guitar, keys and bass. So that way we can switch around a bit doing different instruments and keep the crowd on their feet.
Mike Parr Band
We are a 5-piece local band that can be your normal crowd-pleaser or can rock a couple sets of originals for live concert venues. Mike takes the front-man role while Jason plays rhythm and lead guitar as well as sings. Robert plays bass and keys, Jeremy is the axe man providing incredible lead guitar runs and Jimmy O provides the John Bonham style grove needed to add fuel to this lineup.
Lately I have been writing short jingles for companies to use as their background sound for their web videos, basically jingle writing. Now that I have my recording studio setup I can now also improve my sound engineer and production skills to help me when writing songs. I have been recording a lot of ideas and sounds then creating full songs from the ones I like. For example, in the last year I wrote over 50 jingles for businesses and of those pieces of songs, I took the sounds that caught my attention most and used that as a starting point for writing this latest album. It worked well for me as the album flowed pretty quickly.
Back in the 80's we recorded singles from established artists like basement floor. In the 90's I started writing my own music and have written 3 full albums of material plus many more that didn't make the album cuts. With the songs we recorded and released albums in 2004, 2008 and now that latest in 2018. You can hear our songs on the ORIGINALS page and will be able to start downloading songs from the new album at multiple outlets like iTunes, Amazon, digital radio, etc.. starting September.
Thank you for your continued support and hope to see you at a show soon 🙂
