PETER's New ALBUM
Add one part Robert Plant's Band of Joy in-the-pocket rhythm section (with drummer Marco Giovino producing)... A touch of Muscle Shoals keys legend Spooner Oldham (who was seen most recently on stage with Neil Young during his surprise appearance at a small Boston area venue!)... And a healthy helping of the spirited McCrary Sisters backing vocals...
You get a taste of what's coming together on Peter Parcek's new record.
And it gets better. Additional guitar work comes courtesy of Luther Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars (whose "World Boogie is Coming", the seventh studio record by these Americana music luminaries, was released on September 3rd, 2013). Harmonica ace Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson) blew up a storm on several tracks. Acoustic bass was courtesy of two stellar upright players: Dennis Crouch (Robert Plant's Band Of Joy, Diana Krall, and others) and Domenic John Davis (Jack White). To top it off, session whiz Russ Pahl added pedal steel to a couple of tracks. (You heard right: Pedal steel on a Peter Parcek record.)
The music on Peter Parcek's record is a new kind of creativity, sure, but it exists where American music has always existed: At the nexus of Blues, Folk, Country (Merle and Johnny's country, you know), and American curiosity. And like any good American tradition, it's not afraid to let it all blend together with the Blues as it's guide. - Brendan Hogan

Review - Blues Blast Magazine October 3, 2013
Featured Live Blues Review - Roots n Blues BBQ Festival
"He may not yet be a household name, but Boston’s Peter Parcek left no doubt that a guitar is a lethal instrument in his hands as he, bass player Joe Klompus and drummer Chris Anzalone practically set fire to the Shelter Insurance Stage Sunday afternoon. After witnessing the destruction firsthand, it’s easy to see why none other than Buddy Guy has been singing Parcek’s praises as a must-see guitarist."
