Parker Urban Band @Barrelhouse South

BLUES, soul, gospel, R&B, prog, and rock 'n’ roll collide in the Southern stylings of Parker Urban Band. With Myrna Stallworth’s huge, bone-shaking vocals at the helm, Barrelhouse South’s floor will be bouncing in the wake of the band’s melodies and grooves.

Stallworth, a Florida native, grew up in a family of gospel performers; with encouraging lyrics and a boundless voice akin to Aretha Franklin, she’s a mesmerizing frontwoman. Backed by Stevie Ray Vaughan-style guitar wailings, organ, danceable rhythms, and silky sax, a Parker Urban Band show is a party where all are sure to leave with a smile.

The band’s shared the stage with the likes of The Wailers, JJ Grey & Mofro, The Lee Boys, and Barrelhouse regulars like Zach Deputy, so if you’re into the Congress Street bar’s typical rock/soul/jam selections, you’ll definitely want to hit this show.

Thursday, March 10, 9 p.m., free, 21+
